Whether it’s taking a 911 on a mountain pass road, driving through endless bends and hairpins, or heading into the wilderness at the wheel of a Cayenne, there’s always an adventure to be had with a Porsche. But what happens when it’s time to rest up? In the winter, you may think that means heading to a hotel – but what about spending the night under the stars instead? Luckily, Porsche are on hand to help here, too.Winter camping essentials from the Porsche accessories rangeThe freedom that driving a Porsche into the heart of nature gives you doesn’t need to stop as soon as you turn the engine off. With the Porsche roof tent, your Porsche can quickly be turned into a setting for your very own hotel room on wheels – with the added bonus of spectacular views from two sides, as well as up towards the stars, courtesy of the sky-view window.The Porsche roof tent is easy to set up and once in place you can climb up its telescopic ladder and into the roof tent itself get yourself comfy. At 210cm long and 130cm wide, the integrated, high-density polyfoam mattress is big enough to accommodate even tall Porsche adventurers.

It’s an all-season tent too, offering protection from rain, wind and snow. No one enjoys waking up in a soggy tent.Designed by Studio F.A. Porsche in Zell am See – the Austrian village that, appropriately enough, is home to the F.A.T. Ice Race – the Porsche roof tent is made of breathable cotton blend fabric and features waterproof zippers and has an additional rain cover for the access hatch.
