Porsche teases its off-road 911 Dakar ahead of its debut next week at the LA Auto Show

Porsche gives the 911 off-road capabilities

Porsche teased its first official off-road 911, called the Dakar, which is a nod to the first overall victory by Porsche in the Paris-Dakar rally in 1984. The predecessor to the upcoming Dakar was a 911 that had been fitted with an all-wheel-drive system.

The official unveiling of the 911 Dakar will be at the Los Angeles Auto Show on 16th November 2022.

Over 10,000km of rigorous off-road testing

Porsche tested the 911 Dakar in extreme weather conditions and harsh terrain such as on 50-metre sand dunes in Dubai and Morocco in temperatures of up to 45°C or 113°F, the rocky Château de Lastours test track in the south of France, and over "thick ice of the frozen lakes" on testing grounds in Arjeplog, Sweden.
