Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Safari

The Porsche 911 has been pushed to its limits on the track and on the open road for close to 60 years. Now, a new story is being written; a unique pair of experimental 911 sports cars are being tested in an environment devoid of any roads, with thin air, extremely low temperatures, and little chance of plant life surviving. A crew headed by endurance racer and explorer Romain Dumas has chosen one of the most difficult locations on earth to start their quest to test the 911s capabilities: the cliff faces of Chiles Ojos del Salado, the highest volcano in the world.

The driver and his crew have taken a specially modified 911 Carrera 4S with the stock flat-six and seven-speed manual and added a variety of upgrades, including rol cages, carbon fiber seats with harnesses, portal axles that raise the 911s ground clearance, off-road tires, Aramid fiber underbody protection, and new, lower gear ratios to handle difficult terrain. The Porsche Warp-Connecter, supported by manually-controlled differentials, mechanically connects all four wheels to provide constant load to the wheels independent of suspension movement. The automobiles successfully climbed over 19,000 feet in conditions that were almost 86 degrees below freezing as a result.
