Can’t believe Porsche let me do THIS to their 911 Dakar!

This is the most extraordinary 911 the world has actually ever seen … The !

It's based on the Carrera 4 GTS, however it's been modded as much as the eyeballs to make it ideal for taking off-road! However what exactly has changed over the basic vehicle?

Well for starters, let's take a look on the outside. In advance, you'll find a redesigned bumper, a tow drawback and retro-styled alloys at both the front and back. The automobile has also been raised 60mm higher than standard and has the option to raise an additional 30mm if required. There's a carbon fiber spoiler around the back, additional cladding around the wheel arches and the exact same bonnet as drawn from the GT3!

Regardless of being built for big off-road work, the is still unmistakably a Porsche on the within, with the infotainment screen, centre console and dials matching the GTS. However, there are a number of modifications to identify it from the normal car, such as bespoke driving modes, super-durable floor mats, and container seats raised from the GT3. Oh, and of course, you will not miss the roll cage at the back!

The 911 Dakar is powered by the very same engine as the Carrera 4 GTS, which means it's geared up with a 3-litre twin-turbo flat-six which is good for 480hp and 570Nm of torque. The engine sends power to all 4 wheels, which is simply as well offered a few of the surface areas the 911 Dakar is likely to encounter!

Intrigued? Naturally, you are! There's one thing to consider though … The rate starts from ₤ 173,000!! So is it worth it? It's time for Mat to put it through its speeds and discover!

      He had to slow down because the Cheyenne was slowing down and that’s what got him. Any off roader would get stuck if they stopped on soft deep mud like that.

      The only thing standing in the way is the price…if this were say $100k, I could actually buy one…

      ​@SomeGuy’s Garage a standard 911 cost that much, why should a modified Porsche cost the same?

    4. SomeGuy's Garage Avatar
      SomeGuy’s Garage

      @Ante F the point was a base Carrera used to cost like $60-70k. 911 prices have gone through the roof where they’re all $200k+ cars these days.

    If I had the money to buy a Porsche, I would absolutely buy the Porsche Dakar precisely because it does what it does and doesn’t look like something that’s supposed to be posed in and have the life detailed out of it! 😁

      The Porsche 911 Dakar has $890000.

      if i had one i would definitely do a rally with it. it would be incredible to see a new 911 doing such races and i also think it would be very quick. a lot of torque, 4×4 and amazing diffs is all you need honestly.
