Porsche 911 Dakar

02/10/2023

The original idea for the 911 Dakar was realised in 1984 with the 953 911 Carrera 3.2 Paris-Dakar, created for the infamous Paris Dakar race, a gruelling off-road race that saw competitors travelling from Paris, France to Dakar in Senegal.

Competitors covered over 7000 miles in total with the majority of competitors failing to reach the end. The original 911 Dakar had 300bhp and a rudimentary four-wheel drive system. Despite it’s sportscar origin, the three 953 racers that entered all finished, with one taking first place.

The latest 911 Dakar is the spiritual successor to the 953. Built on the 992 911 platform and featuring 480hp whilst still retaining the four-wheel drive system.

The 911 Dakar is hugely customisable, with accessories such as a roof basket with auxiliary headlights, 12 litre fuel canister, recovery boards, folding spade and a roof tent.

Limited to just 2,500 units and featuring full carbon fibre reinforced bucket seats, GT Sports steering wheel and All-Terrain tyres
