It has an exclusive hardcase, which was developed at the Weissach Development Centre and co-designed by Studio F.A. Porsche in Zell am See. The hardcase design can be installed on the roof transport systems of the 9111, Macan, Cayenne, Panamera and Taycan – both with and without roof rails. It is quite the room with a view, with two side windows and a roof window as standard. The all-season, two-person tent is now available to order from Porsche sales partners for €4,9802 (in Europe; see below for Australian-market details). Delivery is set to begin in November 2022.
In the extended position, the floor surface measures 210 x 130 cm. A comfortable, high-density polyfoam mattress is integrated. The tent walls are made of a breathable cotton blend. With water-resistant zips and a separate rain cover for entry, the tent is designed for wetter weather too. The side walls mimic the flyline of the 911 and feature a PORSCHE logo. Highlights in the interior include the highly insulating quilted lining in Light Grey. The head end features a mountain silhouette. The mattress features the same quilting pattern.
Highlights in the interior of the roof tent
Other features: both side windows can be fully opened for ventilation. An insect guard offers protection against mosquitoes and an additional black-out function helps keep the light out.
The Porsche roof tent can be set up quickly at the campsite. First, you open the lockable safety latches. Then, you lift the hardcase slightly and open it up with the aid of two gas pressure shock absorbers. The foot zone of the floor is then folded out and stabilised using the integrated telescopic ladder. By now, the tent is already unfolded. The last step is simply to erect the tent and make it taut with the four poles.
Buyers can choose between the Black/Light Grey and Black/Dark Grey hardcase, each of which is adorned with a matt black PORSCHE logo. Additional optional Tequipment accessories will be available soon. This includes an inner tent, a heated blanket and a shoe and bag organiser.
