What is the wild trend?

With most of the world’s population now living in cities, getting away from nature is more common than ever. When this desire conflicts with the competitiveness of social media, it generates a wild movement. A subset of the off-road kits in the motoring community use heavily modified cars. Most often these are SUVs. However, the occasional sports car is transformed into an off-road or dirt track machine.

With the rapid popularity, more and more people want to use their cars as one-stop outdoor exploration machines. These individuals need a lot of aftermarket parts. Think lifestyle gear like kayaks and paddleboards. But also off-road equipment, such as bull bars, winches and searchlights. Let’s not forget about the shelter either. These tents are usually roof-mounted or built into the bed of a pickup truck.

Why buy a Porsche roof tent?

Porsche has long held the position as the usable supercar. More specifically, this moniker belongs to the Porsche 911 Turbo S. But the other models in its range offer this spice while also offering the benefits of the class in question. The roof tent not only supports 911, but also supports Macan, Cayenne, Panamera and Taycan. Cayman and Boxster owners cannot use this tent, nor can they use GT, Cabriolet or Targa models. The tent is suitable for transportation systems on supported car roofs. Previously, these systems supported roof boxes, ski racks, and the like. In other words, a way to enable Porsche customers to embrace all aspects of life, strengthening their qualifications as the everyday supercar suitable for even the harshest conditions.

Porsche explains that this roof tent will affect the handling characteristics of the model. Most importantly, all vehicles when fitted with this roof tent have a top speed of 130 km/h which is approximately 80 mph. So customers will have to stick to the speed limits with this roof tent installation. It weighs 56 kg, and all this is added to the top of the car, and this will certainly negatively affect the handling of the Porsche. But in no case should this option spoil a road trip because these cars are among the most capable on the planet.

According to PorscheIn May, they unveiled a concept for this option. Dubbed the Porsche Travel Experience, Porsche took two travel influencers on scenic road trips with a pre-production orange and gray version of the tent. This came installed on top of the Porsche Taycan Turismo. For exploring the Black Forest and the Rhine, this tent opens up some of the world’s most rural areas for Porsche owners to explore.
