2022 Porsche 911 992 Safari nears release
Latest spy shots show mule testing at the ‘Ring
Porsche continues to tease enthusiasts with public rollouts of a possible safari-specification 992, with a mule riding with significant ground clearance seen at the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
The prototype, captured by DrivesToday’s spies, again shows an example riding on extremely high suspension with wider, tacked-on arches, while a tweak to the design of the 992’s front bumper at the bottom is clearly visible, to offer further ground clearance. This latest sighting at the ‘Ring follows a similar public showing on the Nordschleife in October 2020, where a mule appeared with similar ride height and Styrofoam in the wheel arches, as previously reported by DrivesToday. This sighting in July 2021 once again stokes the fire as to the possibility of a genuine 992 safari being on the way.
It remains to be seen whether Porsche will genuinely offer a safari-spec 911 to customers, and whether the model will be part of a limited build run. Total 911 expects any safari 992 to be based on the Carrera 4S platform, offering power and traction in abundance. For daily updates on new 911 developments, be sure to check.
