The Dakar Rally was never a game in a sandbox. Right from the start, it was one of the greatest adventures in the world and a challenging test of endurance. With the toughest drivers, the toughest vehicles and a legendary winner in 1984: the 911 Carrera 3.2 4×4 Paris-Dakar (953).
The new Porsche 911 Dakar is a worthy successor. With the Rallye Design Package, it pays homage to the original and brings history back to life.
Performance, robust technology and endurance are what count in rallying. Only then do you really have a chance of being the first to reach the finish line. The new 911 Dakar is a sports car that is just as suitable for off-road driving as it is for on-road performance and also cutting a fine figure in the city.
Whether on tarmac, gravel or sand, the stiffer unit mounts of the 911 GT3 increase the driving dynamics of the 911 Dakar, especially when driving offroad. Together with the rear-axle steering and PDCC active roll stabilisation, the result is an optimally tuned chassis package that masters even the most difficult rally passages safely and comfortably. The 911 Dakar produces 353 kW (480 PS) of power, which is transferred to all four wheels by the 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK).
Keep your distance. Not just at the front and the rear, but also underneath. The Dakar is the only 911 that has sports suspension to make it 50 mm higher than the standard 911. If space still gets tight under the stainless steel guard while on gravel roads, the specially developed lift system on the 911 Dakar can raise the car by a further 30 mm at the front and the rear – either when stationary or while driving at speeds of up to 150 km/h.
The Sport Chrono Package for the 911 Dakar includes two further specific performance settings: Rallye mode for gravel roads, muddy tracks and wet grass; and Offroad mode for tackling sand dunes and rocky passages. The Rallye Launch Control is also on hand to ensure a perfect rally stage start on loose ground.
The Rallye Sport Package offers enhanced protection for driving offroad and on circuits. It comes with two six-point seatbelts and a Black powder-coated steel roll bar that is bolted to the bodyshell behind the front seats. The package also includes an easily accessible fire extinguisher mounted on the passenger side.
Every gram counts on sandy terrain. That's why the bonnet of the 911 Dakar, like that of the 911 GT3, is made of particularly lightweight carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) with integrated air vents.
A carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) fixed rear spoiler, which was developed for optimal aerodynamics, provides the necessary downforce on fast sections.
Two-tone paintwork. A nod to the historic original: the two-tone paint finish in White/Gentian Blue Metallic, decorative stripes in Gold/Red and 19/20-inch wheels painted in White with all-terrain tyres pay homage to the legendary 1984 Porsche 953. The starting number can be chosen individually.
