Porsche 911 Dakar 2023 launched, for people who like to run off-road with sports cars

When the racing or street versions became too popular, Porsche added the 911 Dakar model for riders who like to run off-road.

Recently, a series of special editions of the Porsche 911 have been launched, developed from many different variations to help customers be more comfortable in choosing a car. And recently, the German car company launched the model 911 Dakar 2023 – an all-wheel drive 911 model is not for speed enthusiasts who want to experience racing or highways.


To increase the personality of the Porsche 911 Dakar 2023 model, the German prancing horse brand has specially equipped the Rally Design option package inspired by the pioneering 911s in the four-wheel drive competition that won in Paris. 1984 Dakar Rally, paving the way for the 959 supercar.


Starting price of Porsche 911 Dakar 2023 from 223,450 USD (~ 5.5 billion VND). Compared to the standard all-wheel drive 911, the ride height is 50 mm greater and can be increased by 30 mm. Thanks to the significantly increased ground clearance, the car is easier to operate on rough roads.


Porsche said that when activating the “High Level” off-road mode via the rotary control button on the steering wheel (which is the Sport Chrono package’s rotary button in the regular 911), the 911 Dakar can improve ground clearance to More optimal when going uphill like some conventional SUVs at a speed of 170 km/h. Can then return to normal altitude for operation in street conditions.


The off-road vehicle is also designed to maximize traction in low-grip situations, and comes with a new mode that Porsche calls “Rally” that is set for rough, uneven surfaces. and transmits most of the traction to the rear axle.

Both modes feature Rally Launch Control, which allows 20 percent wheel slip for going fast on rough surfaces and takes advantage of the grip of the 245/45 and 295/40 Pirelli all-terrain rubber. Scorpion. Scorpions feature a 9mm deep tread block and two carcass layers for added dirt durability, and customers can choose from Pirelli P Zero summer or winter tires.

However, those off-road tires forced Porsche to impose a 140 mph speed limit, making the Dakar the slowest globally-spec 911 since 1983 (although some 911s had a top speed of less than 240 km/h before the 964 arrived in the US).

However, 911 Dakar would still go faster if Porsche wanted it to. The 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged 6-cylinder engine is taken from the 911 Carrera 4 GTS, which has a maximum speed of 309 km/h and produces a maximum capacity of 473 horsepower and maximum torque of 570 Nm through eight-speed PDK transmission.

The time of 3.4 seconds for the 911 Dakar to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h is only one-tenth of the number that Porsche gives the 911 Carrera 4 GTS model priced at 149,900 USD (~ 3.72 billion VND). This off-road Porsche 911 model is also equipped with accessories such as roof racks.


But Porsche has worked hard to reduce the weight of the 911 Dakar, by replacing the electric rear spoiler with a fixed spoiler, a roof made of lightweight carbon fiber reinforced plastic from the 911 GT3, thin glass Furthermore, track seats instead of comfort seats are heavier and eliminate the rear seats altogether.


These equipment can be found on any 911 RS, but the vehicle height is raised, red forged aluminum tow hooks are added to the front bumper, front/rear wheel arches are widened, the body is made of Stronger stainless steel and protective mesh on the air intake.

Porsche only limited production of 2,500 911 Dakars, although many car news sites in the US suspect this model may return in the next generation of 911 and become a permanent product, like the GT3 RS. and Speedsters. With the above selling price, after returning to Vietnam and paying all taxes and fees, the expected selling price of the car will be about 17 billion VND.
