Porsche has released some teaser photos and details about their new Porsche 911 Dakar, and the company has been testing prototypes of the car.
Porsche will officially unveil the new Porsche 911 Dakar on Wednesday, November 16 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
When testing the car, the development engineers around project general manager Achim Lamparter were not limited to the intensive use of the off-road proving ground in Weissach. In fact, the development team has tested the 911 Dakar over 500,000 kilometers in extreme conditions around the world, including more than 10,000 kilometers off-road. For example, the Château de Lastours test track in southern France is used to test the car’s handling and fine-tune the suspension on a typical rally track. Kilometer after kilometer of loose surfaces really put the Porsche 911 Dakar to the test.
“Even in the desert, the 911 Dakar delivers outstanding performance,” said Frank Moser, Vice President of the 911/718 Model Series. “Especially here, the 911 Dakar can take full advantage of its concept – light weight, higher ground clearance, a powerful rear-mounted engine and a short wheelbase combine for an exhilarating driving experience. I was able to drive in the Sahara Experience it yourself on a test drive in the desert.”
