The New Porsche 911 Dakar

The New Porsche 911 Dakar


Throughout history, Porsche has been synonymous with motorsport success, with no exception being made for off-road competition. The new 911 Dakar is a special vehicle concept inspired by our rallying heritage, combining the typical sports car DNA of the 911 with enhanced day-to-day usability and off-road capabilities. A sandstorm is brewing. The new Porsche 911 Dakar pays homage to the original and brings history back to life. As Ferry Porsche once said: "The 911 is the only car that takes you from an African safari to Le Mans, then to the theatre, and then onto the streets of New York." #Sportmade

Porsche recently celebrated an extraordinary world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 17: Introducing the exclusive 911 Dakar model, limited to 2,500 units. The first striking detail of the Porsche 911 Dakar is its ground clearance, which is 50 millimetres higher than that of a 911 Carrera with sports suspension. And the standard lift system can raise the front and rear ends an additional 30 millimetres. Its ground clearance and ramp angle rival those of conventional SUVs. The lift system is not only used to slowly cross obstacles, but is an integral part of the retuned chassis. The ‘high level’ setting is available for ambitious off-road adventures at speeds of up to 170 km/h. Above that speed, the car automatically lowers back down to its normal level.

Tested in extreme conditions around the globe, the 911 Dakar is purpose-built to go where no other 911 can, thanks to a variety of different modifications, such as its heightened chassis (sitting 50 mm higher than the 911 Carrera).

Designed to provide total confidence wherever you go, the 911 Dakar also features all-wheel drive, 'RALLYE' and 'OFFROAD' driving modes, various chassis systems and All-Terrain tyres. 

911 Dakar official WLTP combined fuel consumption 25.0 mpg, WLTP combined CO2 emissions 256 g/km.
