This Is The Off-Roader Porsche Needs To Make

/ 10 Comments

Would you care if Porsche scrapped the Cayenne in favor of this?

The Porsche Cayenne and Macan SUVs may be the German manufacturer's best-selling models right now, but both are criminally drab. What Porsche needs is an exciting sports off-roader designed for thrills and pure driving pleasure, rather than utility. Enter the latest work from the rendering wizards at Rain Prisk: a Porsche 918 Spyder kitted out as an off-roader ready to tackle rough terrain. It's an unusual mash-up, granted, but the result is a significant improvement over the bland Cayenne.

It's not as if Porsche doesn't have any off-road racing pedigree, either. Cast your mind back, and you may remember that the 959 was converted into a savage rally car where it competed in the Group B class in the 1980s alongside the likes of the fearsome Ford RS200, Ferrari 288 GTO and Audi Quattro S1. It's no coincidence, then, that the 918 is the modern-day equivalent to the 959. It's still surprising how well the 918 lends itself to an off-road racing machine, with its intimidating tires, roof rack and auxiliary lighting. Make it happen, Porsche. Alternatively, maybe Clarkson can turn this into a reality in the next season of The Grand Tour? It's not like they don't have the budget.
