    2022 992 Safari Model

    A surprise is coming for MY 2022. Factory Safari model 992 with a lift kit, bigger tires, extra lights, revised diffs,  

    Confirmed by Porsche of Oklahoma.

    This Porsche dealership has gotten into prepping older Cayennes for off road use and is now a dealer for Eurowise Cayenne lift kits etc.. They are also building a Cayman Safari like rallye car.

     



    Re: 2022 992 Safari Model

    Safari or Dakar, btw?

    Re: 2022 992 Safari Model

    I expressed interest with our local dealership....might be the perfect 911 for bad roads.


    Re: 2022 992 Safari Model

    Great, l already see owners lowering their safaris / dakars …. I don’t know…l am not sure why there would be a whatever niche for such a car … yes

    LOL, that would be one button press inside the cabin away. Likely it will have standard height adjustable air suspension.

    If you live in the Southern part of the US, there are plenty of dirt race tracks that let you run whatya brung. Might be some interesting new track say adventures ahead. Porsche may unwittingly be taking a deep dive into Bubba land.

    Should be a big seller in the US, antidote for the decades of lack of infrastructure spending on roads…

    be my guest, not in the US only ... in Germany, we are currently experiencing a great happening as all of a sudden a lot of  autobahn / highway bridges in the country seem to be in "very bad condition", to put it mildly ... Smiley ... so, perhaps there is a market for high clearance sports cars actually ... oh, and, I already see the "dirt paint to sample" EUR 10.000 option for the DAKAR 911 coming ... oh, boy ... 


    Re: 2022 992 Safari Model

    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.

    For years, the brand failure to deliver a real off road 4wd w room inside has been glaring.

    The early Cayenne w low range was ok, but everything since is soccer mom with tiny interiors.


    Re: 2022 992 Safari Model

    After a recent two day snowfall, the advantages of this Porsche becomes very apparent.  Many of the roads, a week later, are relatively clear; however, a few roads remain heavily ridged with patchy areas of ice.  A few more centimeters of ground clearance and a comfort suspension setting is all that is needed to tackle the back country roads.

    I don't know why but for some reason the number 928 sound like a good fit for this mythical vehicle. Wonder if Porsche has ever thought about something like that. 


    Re: 2022 992 Safari Model

    I hope they Baja race this. And offer rock rails, full skid plates, a special lower gear ratio incl a low 1st gear and no center lock wheels might need to beef up the transfer case and front diff also.
