All-terrain sports car, Porsche 911 Dakar

In its world premiere at the Los Angeles Motor Show, Porsche is doing the Dakar again, this time for the 911 and series, unlike the illustrious 959 that made Paris-Dakar. The Porsche 911 Dakar is immediately distinguished by its 50mm higher ground clearance compared to the 911 Carrera with sports chassis. Certain standard lifting systems allow an additional 30mm to be raised at the front and rear of the vehicle. Not only does this system allow it to overcome obstacles at low speeds, it is an integral part of its optimized chassis. The “high level” setting is therefore available at speeds of up to 170 km/h for sporty outings in off-road conditions. When the vehicle exceeds this speed, it automatically returns to normal ground clearance. © Porsche AG / Porsche 911 Dakar Porsche 911 Dakar ready for off-road driving? A Porsche 911 Dakar with a livery inspired by the Paris-Dakar 959 is very possible and optional, but possible. Initially available, the Rallye Design Pack includes a two-tone White/Gentian Blue metallic exterior color. You can then add a race number to the side of your car, from 1 to 999. Referring to the model that won the 1984 Paris-Dakar, the 911 Dakar with Pack Rally design not only displays red and gold decorative strips, but also features the “Roughroads” monogram on the doors. White-painted wheels and untinted taillight strips complete the distinctive look of this new variant. © Porsche AG / Porsche 911 Dakar The 911 Dakar is distinguished by an all-new lightweight fixed CFRP rear spoiler and CFRP front bonnet taken from the 911 GT3 with generous air outlets. Note other available items, such as a red aluminum tow ring. On the roof of the Porsche 911 Dakar, standard electrical pre-equipment is clearly visible, allowing for the connection of additional LED headlights integrated into certain roof racks. A roof rack with a load capacity of 42 kg makes it easy to transport essential rally gear (water or petrol buckets, folding shovel or sand board). A roof tent is also available as an option on the 911 Dakar. © Porsche AG / Porsche 911 Dakar The interior of the 911 Dakar is resolutely sporty, as evidenced by the standard integrated bucket seats and the absence of a rear seat. Lightweight glass glazing and an ultra-light battery help reduce the weight of the new model, so the Porsche 911 Dakar weighs 1,605 kg, 10 kg more than the 911 Carrera 4 GTS with PDK gearbox. © Porsche AG / Porsche 911 Dakar Is it really reasonable? This Porsche 911 Dakar is designed to maximize traction in low grip situations. It has a mode Porsche calls “Rally”, which is set for loose, uneven surfaces and sends more power to the rear axle. Both modes feature Rally Launch Control, which allows 20% wheel spin for quick starts on loose surfaces and utilizes the bite of the 245/45 ZR19 and 295/40 ZR20 Pirelli Scorpion off-road tires. The Scorpions feature 9mm-deep tread blocks and two carcass plies for increased dirt resistance, but you get a choice of Pirelli P Zero summer or winter tires. © Porsche AG / Porsche 911 Dakar Unfortunately, this off-road tire forced Porsche to impose a speed limit of 240 km/h, making the Dakar the slowest 911 since the early 1980s. 480 horsepower with a maximum torque of 570 Nm delivers exceptional performance and the emotionally rich sound signature of the Boxer engine. The new sports car sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, giving it a top speed of 240 km/h. This engine is mated to an eight-speed PDK gearbox and Porsche all-wheel drive as standard. Standard equipment also includes rear-wheel steering and a PDCC active roll stabilization system. © Porsche AG / Porsche 911 Dakar Porsche has worked hard to reduce the weight of the 911 Dakar. The electric rear wing was replaced with a fixed version, and bucket seats were installed in place of the GT3’s lightweight carbon-reinforced plastic bonnet, thinner windows, and heavier comfort seats. , completely remove the rear seat. The Porsche 911 Dakar weighs 1,605 kg, 10 kg more than the 911 Carrera 4 GTS with PDK gearbox. The new Porsche 911 Dakar can be ordered for 226,689 euros including tax and the Rally Design Pack for 26,280 euros. Only 2,500 units of the 911 Dakar will be produced, but the model could go back to future generations of the 911. © Porsche AG / Porsche 911 Dakar © Porsche AG / Porsche 911 Dakar © Porsche AG / Porsche 911 Dakar
