A high-riding Porsche 911, called Dakar, in reference to a legendary off-road test for man and machine. That raises questions. And there is probably only one person on this planet who can answer each of these questions to one's absolute satisfaction and with unhesitating credibility. The name of this person is Walter Röhrl.
So again: A high-slung, off-road Porsche. First thought: yes, the Macan! So it may be noted directly: Is there a need for the 911 Dakar? Brand ambassador Walter Röhrl smiles, which in Röhrl's case can naturally be interpreted in a meaningful way. The colleagues from the press department who travelled with him remain calm. They know that the limited edition of 2,500 911s with special ground clearance and special tires for more grip on loose surfaces is not about selling as many as possible. It's about distributing them appropriately. You know, supply and demand. But that basically applies to every 911. And that's why Röhrl gets to speak like he drives: free, direct and straight as an arrow. And so he concludes: »After the first tests, I noticed right away: this is really good! And now that the car is ready, I want to buy one.« You have to know, this doesn't happen often with Röhrl. It really is an exception. A very obvious reason, he says, is directly the slightly higher entry. For the sake of the wife, as he says.
