What do you think of when you envision a Porsche 911? Probably a fast roadster that can hug mountain curves at 60 miles per hour. Well that is what I used to think of too.
"Seven-time Pikes Peak Champion Jeff Zwart discusses the alter ego of the Porsche 911 - Rallying and Off-Roading. Watch Jeff attack Pikes Peak and then drive the Porsche Museum's Paris-Dakar winning Type 953, the All-Wheel-Drive 911 precursor to the 959."
Jeff Zwart is a professional rally driver who's father bought a 911 2nd hand and when it was time for Jeff to learn to drive he learned in a Porsche as well. Its no surprise that he has claimed so many championships behind the wheel of one.
This is the Porsche Museum's Paris-Dakar winning Type 953. It makes me think that maybe Mountain State Overland should consider something like this as our next overland vehicle, maybe not. Either way it is a sweet ride!
