2024 Porsche 911 Dakar

This 2024 Porsche 911 Dakar was introduced at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2022. “A sports car that’s equally at home off-road as it is on it. The exclusive model is limited to 2,500 examples. The 911 Dakar pays homage to the first overall victory by Porsche in the Paris-Dakar Rally of 1984, an event that also marked the birth of all-wheel drive in the Porsche 911”. The Dakar comes with 473 horsepower and 420 ft. lbs. of torque from its 3.0L twin turbocharged engine. It has an 8 speed PDK with 13.8″ brake rotors front and rear.

The 911 Dakar has a normal ride height that is 2″ above a normal 911. With its lift system it can raise the car another 1.2″ if desired. This higher ride height is available up to 105 MPH for high speed rally driving.

The 911 Dakar is fitted with 295/45 ZR20 tires all terrain tires in the rear. All terrain tires is a first for a 911.

The front tires are 245/40 ZR19 all terrain tires.

At the heart of the optional Rallye Design Package is a two-tone paint finish in White/Gentian Blue Metallic. Porsche is offering two-tone paintwork as standard for the first time. The red and gold stripes are applied by hand in Zuffenhausen in the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur area. On the side of the car, the customer can choose an individual race number between 0 and 999. In addition to the red and gold rally stripes, the 911 Dakar with Rallye Design Package – the appearance of which is based on the winning vehicle of the 1984 Paris-Dakar Rally – also bears the “Roughroads” lettering on the doors. The term is a registered trademark and reflects the concept of the 911 Dakar and its suitability for driving off road. The white-painted rims and the red taillight strip, in contrast to the standard 911, round off the distinctive appearance. Further highlights can be found in the interior: the interior trims and the decorative inlays on the dashboard and the interior door handle are in Ceramica White. There is also extended Race-Tex and leather surrounds as well as seat belts and accents in Shark Blue.

In Rallye mode, the engine, PDK and accelerator offer a dynamic setup akin to the Sport+ mode in other 911 models. And the traction control also allows more wheel slippage on loose ground. Suitable surfaces for Rallye mode, which is tuned for exceptional driving pleasure, include gravel, wet grass and muddy, rutted forest paths. In Offroad mode, the engine, PDK and accelerator respond just like they do in Rallye mode, but the car is automatically adjusted to the higher ride height level and therefore has an additional 1.2″ of ground clearance. I want one!
