Adventure in the desert.
The Dakar Rallye was never a game in a sandbox. Right from the start, it was one of the greatest adventures in the world and a challenging test of endurance. With the toughest drivers, the toughest vehicles and a legendary winner in 1984: the 911 Carrera 3.2 4x4 Paris-Dakar (953).

The new Porsche 911 Dakar is a worthy successor. With the Rallye Design Package, it pays homage to the original and brings history to life.

“The 911 is the only car that you can drive from an African safari to Le Mans, then to the theatre and onto the streets of New York.”

Ferry Porsche

Porsche - On to the next stage.
On to the next stage.
Performance, robust technology and endurance are what count in rallying. Only then do you really have a chance of being the first to reach the finish line. The new 911 Dakar is a sports car that is just as suitable for off-road driving as it is for on-road performance.

Rough Roads.

The 911 Dakar with Rallye Design Package.

The 911 Dakar in Shade Green Metallic.

Porsche - Strong performance.
Strong performance.
Whether on tarmac, gravel or sand: The stiffer engine mounts of the 911 GT3 increase the driving dynamics of the 911 Dakar, especially when driving off-road. Together with the rear-axle steering and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PCCD), the result is an optimally tuned chassis package that masters even the most difficult rally passages safely and comfortably. The 911 Dakar produces 473 HP, which is transferred to all four wheels by the 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK).
3.14 inches (80mm) more ground clearance.
Keep your distance. Not just at the front and the rear — but also underneath. The Dakar is the only 911 that is 1.96 inches (50mm) higher compared to the standard 911 with sports chassis. If space still gets tight under the stainless steel guard while on gravel roads, the 911 Dakar's specially developed lift system can raise the car by a further 1.18 inches (30mm) at the front and rear at speeds of up to 93mph (150km/h). The maximum speed with 3.14 inches (80mm) is 105mph (170km/h).
Rallye Launch Control.
The Sport Chrono Package for the 911 Dakar includes two additional performance setups: Rallye mode for gravel roads, muddy tracks and wet grass; and Offroad mode for tackling sand dunes and rocky passages. The Rallye Launch Control is also on hand to ensure a great rally stage start on loose ground.

Vehicle checklist.

Specific front fascia with additional protection.

Front protection made of stainless steel with reinforced forged aluminum towing eye in Red.

All-terrain tires and robust side skirts.

19/20-inch 911 Dakar light-alloy forged wheels with newly developed all-terrain tires, side skirts with stainless steel inlays and striking wheel arch extensions.

Specific rear fascia with spoiler.

Rear with stainless steel protection, towing eye in Red and fixed rear spoiler.

Porsche - Fighting for every gram.Porsche - Fighting for every gram.

Fighting for every gram.

CFRP front trunk lid.

Every gram counts on sandy terrain. That's why the front trunk lid of the 911 Dakar, like that of the 911 GT3, is made of particularly lightweight carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) with integrated air vents.

CFRP rear spoiler.

A carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) fixed rear spoiler, which was developed for optimal aerodynamics, provides the necessary downforce on fast sections.

Porsche - Rallye Design Package.
Rallye Design Package.
A nod to the historic original: The two-tone paint finish in White/Gentian Blue Metallic, decorative stripes in Gold/Red and 19/20-inch wheels painted in White with all-terrain tires pay homage to the legendary 1984 Porsche 953. The starting number can be chosen individually.


Roof basket with auxiliary headlights.

Ready to hold up to 88 lbs: the Tequipment accessories available for the 911 Dakar, such as canisters, recovery boards and other luggage, can be securely fastened in the robust aluminum roof basket, featuring a Matte Black powder coating. If the stage lasts into the night, the integrated LED auxiliary headlights light the way through the desert.

Can and jug.

Indispensable during every stage: the painted 2.2 gallon gas can and the 3.2 gallon plastic jug for drinking water with "PORSCHE" logo. Both containers are fixed onto the roof basket with special, easy-to-open container holders so that no time is lost when refueling.

Recovery boards.

Essential for soft ground such as sand and mud: The robust plastic boards in Grey with "PORSCHE" logo help with recovering the vehicle if it gets stuck, and can be transported in the roof basket.

Folding spade.

If you dive deep into the endless sea of desert, you need to have the right equipment. The folding spade including axe and saw is a true multi-functional tool – and should be attached to the roof basket within easy reach on every off-road adventure.

Active 2.0 duffel.

Extremely robust and water-repellent: This travel bag is made of Grey tarpaulin material with a distinctive "PORSCHE" logo in Black. Functional details, such as roll-top closure and practical straps for attaching to the roof basket, make it the perfect item on all tours.

Decal sets.

For the 911 Dakar, three additional designs are available as decals that are reminiscent of historic Porsche vehicles from the East African Safari Rallye of 1971, 1974 and 1978 and can be attached directly ex-works or retrofitted via Tequipment.

Roof tent.

The foldable roof tent for two people is mounted on the vehicle's roof transport system and can be set up in just a few simple steps – the best conditions for achieving the top podium position. When driving, the tent, mattress and ladder are stowed in the hardshell case.

On your marks. Focus.


In the 911 Dakar, the driver is greeted by the GT Sport Steering Wheel, which is covered with non-slip Race-Tex. Other specifications: a center top marking in Shade Green, PDK shift paddles and a mode switch for selecting driving modes. Further highlights are the interior trim in Shade Green on the dashboard and Black on the doors and center console with inlays in Black Brushed Aluminum, and the limited edition plaque on the dashboard.

Rallye Design Package cockpit.

Additional elements in Race-Tex make the Rallye Design Package even more dynamic, such as the dashboard, door and center console inlays combined with the trim in Ceramica. Shark Blue contrasting stitching, the Shark Blue center top marking on the GT Sport Steering Wheel and the Shark Blue seatbelts add further distinctive accents.

Porsche - Seats.Porsche - Seats.


Full Bucket Seats.

Built for wild dune drifts: The full shell is made of carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) and offers particularly good lateral support while being lightweight. The bolsters are covered in Black leather and the seat centers in perforated Race-Tex with a Shade Green background. The deviated stitching and the embroidered "911" logo are also in Shade Green.

Adaptive Sport Seats Plus.

These 18-way electric seats offer adventurers particularly high levels of comfort. The seat centers are in Race-Tex, while the side bolsters are in leather. The deviated stitching and embroidered "911" logo in Shade Green add additional accents.

Interior highlights.

Desired limitation.

In the desert, there are an infinite number of stars in the night sky. The 911 Dakar, on the other hand, is limited to 2,500 units. The aluminum plaque with the limited edition number ensures each car is unique.

Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur.

The fascination of Dakar – combined with extraordinary craftsmanship. The design of the new 911 Dakar was specially matched to the sporty look of the victorious 1984 953 by Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, and signed with the embossed logo on the storage compartment lid.

Extended Rallye Design Package.

This is no mirage: The extended package has additional details in Race-Tex including deviated stitching in Shark Blue – such as the inner door-sill guards, the fuse box cover, the owner’s manual wallet and the central air vent surround with slats in leather. Another eye-catcher is the interior mirror panel, clad in Black Race-Tex with deviated stitching in the same color.

Black aluminum.

Exclusive and sporty: pedals and footrest in forged aluminum with partially Black anodized and nanocoated finish. The milled PDK selector lever combines Matte Black and Silver aluminum with Black leather inlays.

Optional Surround view.

When driving off-road, you have to always keep an eye on your surroundings – and even more so on the ground. Gravel? Branches? Mud? At low driving speeds, the terrain camera shows everything on the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) display, so the 911 Dakar can also be parked a little further away if necessary.

Rear seat delete.

You don't drive a rally with four people, but two. For this reason, the rear seats were deliberately removed from the 911 Dakar, saving even more weight on the way to winning a rally stage.
