Porsche offers three exclusive wraps for the 911 Dakar that reprise the look of the 1971, 1974, and 1978 entrants in the East African Safari Rally.
The Rallye 1971 decal set for the 911 Dakar revisits this design and adds the competition number 19, which belonged to the most successful 911 in this rally – a car that came fifth in 1971 in the event that took participants more than 5,000 km through the savanna, desert and scrubland of Kenya.
The Rallye 1974 East African Safari features decals of the main sponsor that consisted of blue stripes that traced the shoulder lines of the otherwise white car. The current wrap takes up this theme, albeit with narrower stripes and augmented by the Porsche logo on the lower edges of the doors. Of the 99 cars that entered, only 16 made it to the finish line.
The Rallye 1978 sponsor’s decals consisted of wave-shaped surfaces in orange and light and dark grey, familiar around the world thanks to the activities of the Martini Racing Team founded in 1958. Once again, Porsche designers have respectfully reinterpreted the historic decals here. The competition number 14 on the doors was that of second-placed Vic Preston Jr.
All decal sets can be ordered ex works via the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur. The Rallye 1971 and Rallye 1974 decal sets can also be ordered later via Porsche Tequipment at Porsche Centres.
