Porsche reveals 911 Dakar in LA

Porsche Dakar 911 exteriorA9670

This limited-run Porsche 911 is inspired by the Paris-Dakar winning model from 1984

Porsche has delved into its archives and relaunched a fan favourite with the 911 Dakar edition. Revealed during the LA auto show on 17 November (where CDN is hosting its annual LA forum) the model will be limited to just 2,500 units. It is yet another example of a car brand reaching into its back catalogue to channel retro design.

Built less for manicured tracks and more for gravel roads, sand dunes and puddles, the Dakar features higher ground clearance and SUV-style trim around the sills and wheel arches, with protective stainless steel plates at the front and rear ends.
