Porsche Cayenne on the Transsyberia Rally

Sporting Exterior

On the tailgate the Cayenne S Transsyberia has a roof spoiler with a double-wing profile to provide even greater stability at high speeds. The front and rear air aprons, in turn, are finished in stainless steel, and orange-coloured wheels give the Cayenne S Transsyberia a sporting look, making the vehicle easily recognisable.

The Cayenne S Transsyberia is available exclusively in two special colour schemes – either Basalt Black Metallic or Crystal Silver Metallic. And matching the model designation at the sides as well as the wheel rims, contrasting elements such as the exterior mirrors, the rear wing, the additional headlights and crossbars on the cooling air intakes are all finished in orange.

Wide Range of Rally Equipment

All 26 examples of the Cayenne S Transsyberia are fitted with a GPS navigation unit as standard enabling the team to plan their routes when off-road, with the system naturally being masterminded by the passenger for optimum efficiency. The glove compartment is replaced on this model by a Tripmaster computer enabling the co-pilot to scrutinize the route in detail between individual navigation points on the way.

Most of the control units are fitted within the interior, and all electric cables have been installed at new points and in new positions. Using a central switch at the right beneath the driver's seat, the driver or passenger are able to switch the on-board electrics on and off in one quick and convenient operation, thus re-setting the electronic system if necessary even while driving.

The regular foot-operated parking brake is replaced by a handbrake, to enable extreme maneouvres. Four additional headlights are fitted on the roof, and to successfully master particularly difficult and demanding terrain, the Cayenne S Transsyberia comes with a winch easy to fit when necessary and stored for convenient use in the luggage compartment.

The luggage compartment also comes with two 20-litre reserve fuel cans, a hydraulic off-road car jack, two fire extinguishers, two sand boards, two full-size spare wheels, and two trans­port boxes for tools. Further features included as standard are two two-man tents, two heat-­insulated mats, four tie-down straps, a nine-metre-long salvage belt complete with tackle, a folding spade, a folding saw, an axe, a manually operated and adjustable spotlamp, four towing eyes and a complete Hazet toolkit.
