PORSCHE DAKAR 2023

This year Porsche launched their roughest and toughest 911 ever: the Dakar.

Inspired by the 1984 Paris-Dakar overall win and just in time for the iconic brand’s 75th birthday.

Mercedes EQS 450+ & EQB 350

SILENT MERCS

The first all-electric Mercedes-Benz luxury saloon is the S-Class of electric cars and promises a range of more than 780km. I took the current flagship from it’s birthplace to Germany’s capital city.

Land Rover Defender

BACK ON TRACK

In 2016 I said good-bye to the old Defender by taking the last Heritage model on a trip to Namibia. Now I finally repeated the 7000km journey in the new Defender.

JEEP GLADIATOR

& TOYOTA LAND CRUISER LC79

ROUGH AND TOUGH

I took South Africa’s most talked about bakkies off the beaten track. The hyper-cool Jeep Gladiator and the legendary Land Cruiser LC79. Which one would you choose?

CAR OF THE MONTH

This year Porsche launched their roughest and toughest 911 ever: the Dakar. Inspired by the 1984 Paris-Dakar overall win and just in time for the iconic brand’s 75th birthday.

It’s Stuttgart’s first two-door, four-wheel drive off-road production vehicle. I did some exhilarating sand-surfing in this fascinating vehicle, in the Moroccan Sahara desert during the launch. And drove it again, together with it’s grand-daddy during the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK.
