Porsche ranks among the top manufacturers of racing cars. The Porsche Cayenne is the most advanced permanent production 4×4 car. Our car has been converted by ORC in Germany. ORC also supported the Porsche Factory during the Trans-Siberian Rally with great success. The latest specification Cayenne Turbo Diesel engine, combined with a high-performance suspension and gearbox, a 200-litre tank and all spare parts necessary will be provided to take on the challenge.

The car is equipped as a rally car, with a roll cage for safety, water tanks, and a bullbar with a winch. All nonessential equipment has been removed and a roof rack is fitted to carry everything needed for this adventure. Navigation and state-of-the-art satellite equipment will be fitted so we hope to be online 24/7. Our Cayenne will be the ultimate off-road car and combines the latest technology and highest quality equipment that is available on production cars today.

The LED light system has been moved from the front to the top to give a longer range and to make it less prone to damage. There will be storage on the roof because of the extra equipment needed. On the bonnet, one can clearly see the signature of people we have meet underway. The bull bar has  been a subject of much discussion of our Australian friends. Also visible is the modified air intake which caused some unexpected problems like a blown turbocharger – now rectified.

 These are standard Porsche seats in the front. They are very comfortable and safe with plenty of electronic settings so each passenger can easily find their own preferences for the long distances. The Cayenne is equipped with 17” alloys with the tyres specially chosen for every challenge separately.

In the back of the car, the standard seat has been removed and replaced by a Recaro seat mounted centrally with a full race safety harness, thus giving room for a fridge and storage compartment.  Towards the back, there is 250l diesel tank and space for personal luggage.  What is more, the Cayenne is equipped with a paddle roll-over safety cage. The safety cage is a standard equipment for nearly all competitor cars and although we are not in a competition, the safety cage was built as the first step of the car conversion. It also adds some torsional stiffness to the shell of the car.

The cockpit of the Cayenne is the headquarter for the time of the challenge. It is the command and navigation center where not only all navi and tracking equipment is fitted, but also cameras. The panel with switches for example extra light in the front of the car, has safety catches so that switches cannot be activated unintentionally.
