With the new 911 Dakar, Porsche is building on its rally successes. In order to underline the historical reference even more, three exclusive foils are now available in the Porsche accessories range, the design of which brings the rally spirit of the 1970s to life even more. ,
Rally look to stick on
Porsche already offers a rally design package for the standard 911 Dakar, which is visually closely based on the winning vehicle of the 1984 Paris-Dakar Rally. In addition, three more exclusive foils are now available, which are reminiscent of the use in the African Rally in 1971, 1974 and 1978.
In 1971, Porsche started the 5,000-kilometer East African Safari Rally with modified Porsche 911 S. The factory racers were recognizable by the simple black foiling on the front hood, the front fenders and the doors. In the end, the Polish driver team Sobieslaw Zasada and Marian Bien took fifth place as the best Porsche team. The "Rallye 1971" decal set for the 911 Dakar takes up this design and features the starting number 19. The decal set is available at a price of 4,165 euros. ,
Waldegaard for everyone
At the 1974 East African Safari Rally, the Swedish rally champion Björn Waldegaard and co-driver Hans Thorszelius drove a 911 Carrera 2.7 RS. Waldegaard was able to lead the competition for a long time, but ultimately had to settle for second place after a wishbone damage. The blue decorative stripes, which ran along the shoulder lines of the white painted car, were characteristic of the foiling of the main sponsor. The current decorative foil also takes up this theme, albeit with narrower decorative stripes and supplemented by the Porsche logo on the bottom edges of the doors. If you want to wrap your 911 Dakar in the "Rallye 1974" look, you will be asked to pay 4,165 euros. ,
In 1978 Björn Waldegaard wanted to do it again and competed again in the East African Safari Rally in Kenya with one of two specially built 911 SC Group 4. Waldegaard is going fast, but is slowed down by various damages. In the end it was only fourth place, the South African Porsche duo Vic Preston Jr./John Lyall took second place. The Waldegaard Porsche was wrapped in the legendary Martini design. The Porsche designers have carefully reinterpreted this for use on the 911 Dakar. The starting number 14 on the doors is that of Vic Preston Jr., who placed second.
All decorative adhesive sets can be ordered ex works from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur. If you want to buy it later, you can get the foil sets from Porsche Tequipment in the Porsche Centers. ,
