In the spring of 1983 dream team of Porsche Racing division’s leaderJacky Ickx, Porsche's Head of Development, Helmuth Bott and racing mastermind engineer, Roland Kussmaul decided to develop a 911 with all-wheel drive in order to enter the Dakar Rally event the following year. Project was named Porsche 953. The main change from 911 to 953 was the four-wheel drive system which was sourced from Audi Quattro. It was powered by standard 3.2-litre boxer-six engine, detuned with a lower compression over fears of the quality of fuel in Africa. The body was heavily reinforced by a welded steel roll cage, meanwhile, the doors, roof, front bumpers and all the glass where made of polycarbonate plastics in order to save weight. A trio of these cars were assembled and entered in the epic race, which amounted to around 11,000km in length. Porsche’s win on the 1984 Paris-Dakar was the first time a sports car had won the event.

The Car. The Myth. The Legend.
