- Porsche 911 S Safari. In 1971, Björn Waldegaard spearheaded Porsche’s first big effort to win the gruelling East African Safari rally. The Swede was leading until he crashed out. His 911 S was considered lost for many years, until German restorer Ingo Stimming bought a shell and started uncovering its secrets.
