The first 911 to get the off-road treatment was the 911 SC Safari, which competed in the 1978 East African Safari Rally with 250hp from a 3.0 liter flat six engine. The automaker entered the Paris-Dakar rally in 1983 with the 911 Carrera 4x4 coupes with 225 horsepower and in 1986 they won the event with the 911 based Porsche 959 Paris Dakar.
