05/12/2022

Always looking for the next challenge, this 911 combines iconic sporting credentials with genuine off-road ability – welcome to the new 911 Dakar.

Named after the gruelling Paris-Dakar rally, this is not the first 911 to be purpose built with serious off-road capabilities. As early as 1965, the 911 began it’s off-road exploits with entry to the Monte Carlo Rally with the 911 T. The 70’s and 80’s included further rally entries but the 1984 Paris-Dakar Rally is where this 992 generation 911 Dakar takes it’s inspiration – in iconic ‘Rothmans’ Blue and White livery, the modified 911 Carrera 3.2 4x4 (953) was unstoppable and after more than 8,000 miles won at the first attempt. 

In typical Porsche style, the new 911 Dakar includes numerous additions to achieve off-road status including: Chassis height is increased thanks to suspension +50mm and an additional +30mm possible via lift system on the front & rear axles simultaneously, all-terrain tyres are standard significantly improving performance on off-road terrain, front and rear aprons have been re-profiled and strengthened with stainless steel skid plates to protect the underside during off-road driving and new OFF-ROAD and RALLYE modes, including RALLYE launch control. 

This new 911 Dakar is in a class of one - a sports car with serious off-road ability. For more information please get in touch with our specialist sales team on 0131 657 8220 or info@porscheedinburgh.co.uk
