Porsche 911 Dakar.

Porsche has revealed a new 911 Dakar off-road sports car.

CAPABLE ON TARMAC AND SAND

Limited to just 2,500 examples globally, the 911 Dakar gets 50mm additional ground clearance compared to the 911 Carrera equipped with sports suspension.

Further aiding the Porsche 911 Dakar’s off-road credentials is a lift system that can raise the car an additional 30mm.

This, Porsche states, gives the Dakar a ramp angle that can rival conventional SUVs.

The 911 Dakar comes with specially developed Pirelli Scorpion All Terrain Plus tyres.

Porsche’s off-road sports car will also ride on specially developed Pirelli Scorpion All Terrain Plus tyres. These will come with a chunky tread pattern that is nine millimetres deep, and sport reinforced sidewalls, for increased resistance to damage.

Pirelli P Zero summer and winter tyres are available as an option.

PERFORMANCE NO MATTER THE CONDITION

And powering the Porsche 911 Dakar over all this challenging terrain is a 473bhp 3.0-litre bi-turbo flat-6. Capable of delivering a total of 570Nm of torque, this engine will see the Porsche sprinting to 100km/h from a standstill in just 3.4 seconds.

All this power is put to the road via all four tyres, of course. Although it does first make its way through an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.

A roof rack is available for the car, complete with its own head lights.

And keeping all this power in check when driving over loose surfaces is Porsche’s rear-axle steering technology, the engine mounts from the 911 GT3, and Porsche’s own Dynamic Chassis Control tech.

And two new driving modes will further aid affairs in the Porsche 911 Dakar. The first ‘Rallaye’ mode will deliver a rear-biased power delivery, perfect loose surfaces. The second, a ‘Offroad’ mode, will offer maximum traction over challenging surfaces, and will automatically offer the higher ground clearance available.

UNLIKE ANY 911 BEFORE

Thinking of making some off-road trips of your own? You’ll be glad to note that the Porsche 911 Dakar can be equipped with an optional roof rack.

This rack comes equipped with headlights, and has a capacity of 42kg. So, you can ferry additional equipment such as water canisters, shovels, or traction boards.

The interior features Sharkblue contrast stitching and seatbelts.

Red aluminium towing lugs at the front and back will also assist if you get bogged down. While stainless steel grilles on the redesigned front end will offer protection against stray rocks.

These are paired with a CFRP rear spoiler and front luggage compartment lid to complete the off-road look.

A roof tent is also available for the 911 Dakar, for all those whose ambitions are less removed from the beaten path.

And finally, if you’re looking to stand apart from other Porsche 911s, there’s also the option to get the Rallye Design Package as seen in the pictures above.

This package will complete your Porsche 911 Dakar in White/Gentian Blue Metallic, alongside rally stripes in red and gold.

And of course, you’ll be able to pick your own race number for the flanks of the vehicle.
