The New Supercar Porsche 911 Dakar Revealed

The new Porsche 911 Dakar

The special edition, limited to 2,500 pieces, demonstrates that the Porsche 911 idea has few boundaries. For this reason, a Rallye Design Package is also offered as an option for the new 911 Dakar, evoking that legendary winning vehicle.

The ground clearance of the Porsche 911 Dakar, which is 50 more than that of the 911 Carrera with sports suspension, is the first notable feature of the vehicle. Furthermore, the front and rear ends can be raised by an extra 30 millimeters using the conventional lift system. Its ramp angle and ground clearance are comparable to those of traditional SUVs. The lift system is an essential component of the tuned chassis and is employed for more than just slowly navigating obstacles. The vehicle immediately descends back to its usual level once it reaches that speed.

Specially designed Pirelli Scorpion All Terrain Plus tires, measuring 245/45 ZR 19 up front and 295/40 ZR 20 up front, complement the vehicle’s dynamic off-road capabilities. The sidewalls are firm, the plump tread pattern is nine millimeters deep, and the tread has two carcass ply. Due to all this, the Porsche 911 Dakar tires are excellent even for difficult terrain and have a high level of cut resistance. On the other hand, all-terrain tires are standard and provide sports car dynamics on the road.

Porsche 911 Dakar Commanding power on all surfaces

911 Dakar’s three-liter six-cylinder engine with 480 PS (353 kW): With an impressive boxer sound and combined fuel consumption* of 11.3 l/100 km, CO2 emissions* combined (WLTP) of 256 g/km, and combined fuel consumption* combined (NEDC) of 10.5 l/100 km, CO2 emissions* combined (NEDC) of 239 g/km, this vehicle offers exceptional performance.

The engine includes Porsche all-wheel drive and an eight-speed PDK as standard equipment. Additional standard features include PDCC anti-roll stabilization, 911 GT3 engine mounts, and rear-axle steering. Rallye mode, which has an all-wheel drive that is rear-focused, is excellent for slick, uneven ground. This mode is intended to provide the most traction possible on the sand and challenging fields.

Porsche Design Chronograph

Customers of the Porsche Design Chronograph 1 911 Dakar or the Chronograph 1 911 Dakar Rally Design Edition can only order these watches to go with the car. The housing is composed of titanium carbide, a very light and scratch-resistant material, for the first time.

The 911 Dakar’s interior emphasizes its racing intentions with standard full bucket seats and the absence of back seats. The Porsche 911 Dakar weighs just 1,605 kg, which is only 10 kg more than the 911 Carrera 4 GTS with PDK. This is made possible by the lightweight glass and a lightweight battery.

The newly created, fixed, lightweight CFRP rear spoiler and the CFRP front baggage compartment lid with dramatic air vents borrowed from the 911 GT3 are other distinguishing characteristics of the 911 Dakar. Standard off-road features include enlarged wheel wells and sills, red aluminum towing lugs at the front and rear, and stainless steel protection components on the front, rear, and side sills. Stainless steel grilles on the redesigned front end also shield the side air intakes from flying rocks.

The headlights of the optional roof rack have access to a visible 12-volt power outlet on the Porsche 911 Dakar’s roof. The rack can easily hold rallying supplies like fuel and water canisters, folding shovels, and traction boards thanks to its 42-kilogram weight capacity. The 911 Dakar also has a roof tent available.

The standard Race-Tex surfaces with ornamental stitching in Shade Green, which are also only offered as a metallic exterior finish for the 911 Dakar, are a distinguishing characteristic of the Dakar interior. Optional features include a roll-over bar, six-point seat belts, and a fire extinguisher in the rally sport package.
