    Have you driven a Cayenne? Its off road performance is second to none. 

    I don't get the Safari.yes

    Your ignorance is showing Nick, Cayennes are worthless off road. We've discussed this before. They are soccer mommy cars, not off road rigs, speaking from experience.

     Tell that to the engineers at Porsche.Smiley I've driven the Cayenne off road. Have you? If not, you're missing the boat.SmileySmiley

    God knows how much Porsche will charge for those Porsche gas cans,but I want one.


    Re: 2022 992 Safari Model

    Jim, over $200,000. If you’re a collector it’s probably worth it. That’s why Porsche limited production. It’s practical value is around $100,000. On the street, the car will generate laughs.

    Or smiles. In the right place and context this car would be amazing.

    People can laugh at my cars all they want.  As long as I enjoy them I’m okay with it.  Mind you here everyone I’ve talked to loves this car.

    This is all that matters.  Who cares what others think.  


    Re: 2022 992 Safari Model

    I want to know how much Porsche Techequipment will be charging just for the optional gas cans!

    Also, the ground clearance and taller sidewall tires makes sense for some urban areas or Montana ranch roads.

    If it's only offered with PDK, then I will pass.

    To me, the critical option is the roof rack and I don’t see it on the configurator…

    I'm ridiculed by my wife every time I arrive in it. The red wheels don't help.

    Re: 2022 992 Safari Model

    Smiley Yeah, I can understand.
    The full red wheels indeed are a bit of a weak point, which made me think whether there isn't another way to have the heritage reference to the original RS2.7 colors but with a more subtle approach than painting the entire wheel red? Would be a nice personal touch to the car maybe.

    Re: 2022 992 Safari Model

    Well my order is in the system (got the email from Porsche saying congrats on your new vehicle), went with Rothmans livery as it was my favorite back in the 962 days.  Now to see if I actually get an allocation for the car...

    Black wheels with street ties, and red wheels with track tires?

    waiting for PDK:

    So a more practical 911.  They should probably add a bit of rear seat room, maybe a couple doors for better access.  Perhaps a hatch to access an increased luggage area.  Being a Porsche, it needs regular, S, GTS and Turbo trims.  I can't wait to see something like it at the dealer.

    is a turbo S Dakar coming?  that's what I want..... the perfect 911 for the Northern RockiesSmiley I wish I'd had the car for the last 30 years in the mud n dirt of ID,  MT, WY, AZ, UT, and NV

    Olive green #2

    Mike, the car is designed to look dirty. Go with Stone Grey bottom right. Suits the car.

    Stone grey is an old 356 color:

    Re: 2022 992 Safari Model

    Stone grey definitely. Maybe Olive, but prefer the tone grey. I think going with too much of a military inspired color is a big mistake with this car. You'll risk looking over the top with it.

    Best color choices that suit the car are these imo, specially the top two


    Re: 2022 992 Safari Model

    If I were in the market for one of these - it would have to be the full Rothmans livery - emulates the Tamiya 959 I had as a kid!

    Re: 2022 992 Safari Model

    Olive green is bright enough to pop the details which appear more muted with the other colors.  


    Re: 2022 992 Safari Model

    Stone grey looks like a good match.
