In 1983 Jacky Ickx suggested Porsche to drive the Paris Dakar.
So Peter Falk and Roland Kussmaul developed the 911 3.2 4x4with 330hp.
Porsche sent three 911 3.2 4×4, inside called the 953, to start the toughest Rallye on 1. January 1984. Jacky Ickx had an electrical breakdown and after that repair, during the night his chase began: from position 139 in 14 days to position 6. His Team driver René Metge won the Paris Dakar.
That is what the two professional Porsche mechanics from Berlin thought when the idea was born to get a “off track // off road” Porsche 911.
Should it be a 1978 East African Safari 911 or a 1984 Paris Dakar 911(953)? It finally became a 1984 Paris Dakar, with a little flair of the 1978 East African Safari 911.
With more than 25 years of professional experience in Porsche Motorsports and professional off-road adventures, the historical research at Zuffenhausen began.
Based on this research and their documents the reconstruction started.
Down to the raw metal, the chassis had been adapted to the complete new engineered suspension, transmission, wheels and underrun protection.
Before you ask: NO it is NOT a 4WD. Don`t you want to have fun?
For comfort reasons, they engineered a power steering.
Even the Interieur shows a lot of comfort with heated Porsche full leather seats and a complete leather interior.
The built in WARN winch helps you if you may get stuck.
Below the roof rack, you even find a sunroof.
This reconstruction is based on a 1983 3.2 Carrera, the same model as Peter Falk and Roland Kussmaul used back then in 1983.
The decision of the 1987 3.2 engine with 217 HP is based on unleaded fuel.
The gearbox is especially off road adapted.
The suspension is a special, adjustable system built with generations of experience.
All constructions are made to last.
This Porsche received an off road stage 3 Kit. Stage 3 is the most you can do by still staying “original”. Stage 1 is what you see a lot on those little lifted Porsches with little bigger wheels and no adapted gearbox and non adapted axles. Stage 2 has adapted gearbox and axles and that’s where the high costs and the engineering starts. So this off road 911 is in stage 3 development. It is the ultimate level to achieve. Everything is adjusted in lots of hours of detailed testings not fearing the costs. This 911 stage 3 is a professional off road car.
This 911 even wears the german “historical plate”, certified from the highest department of DEKRA Motorsport Germany.
What an honour after 3 years of constructing.
You may have seen some other “higher” Offroad 911 before, but lots of those are more to look at than to really go Off-Road.
This is the perfect family Porsche.
you can go anywhere, any time, any weather
The Roof Rack holds Bikes, a sled or a Christmas Tree.
you don`t waste time in polishing, just park below a lawn sprinkler and hang it, with the warn, in a tree to dry
Facing the fact the two engineers constructed it for them selves you see every detail has been made with love on a high level of German engineering.
This 911 is not a showcar!
This is for flat out in the forrest!
Gets delivered unwashed ;o)
