Porsche is paying tribute to its victory at the 1984 Paris-Dakar Rally in a huge way with what's bound to be one of the most sought-after 911s yet, the 911 Dakar. The off-road-capable 911 is almost 2 inches higher than a 911 Carrera and it can be raised by an additional inch, enabling a ramp-over angle similar to a traditional SUV. Alongside the added ride height, the Dakar has a newly calibrated suspension can remain at its "High Level" setting at up to 105 mph. And with its all-terrain capability, Porsche sought out the ideal all-terrain tire via Pirelli, who created a special Scorpion tire just for this model. 

Powering the car is a 3.0L twin-turbo Boxer engine that produces 473 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. This gets the Dakar from 0-60 in just 3.2 seconds and it will hit a limited top speed of 150 mph. Additional features include an eight-speed PDK transmission, Porsche Traction Management all-wheel-drive, rear-axle steering, GT3-style engine mounts, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, and new Rallye and Off-Road modes to automatically adjust the car's ride height and traction level. Porsche also equipped it with a fixed rear spoiler, a CFRP hood from the GT3, aluminum tow hooks, flared fender arches and rocker panels, and a roof with a 12V socket that can power the optional basket, which can hold up to 92 lbs of cargo and accessories. 

Available Spring 2023.
