The new rooftop tent from Porsche Tequipment is designed for nature lovers.
Porsche has just unveiled a new development for outdoor enthusiasts. The tent, which is mounted on the roof of the Porsche, according to the manufacturer, turns the car into a hotel room.
The tent has a specially designed rigid body that can be installed on the Porsche 911, Macan, Cayenne, Panamera and Taycan. The tent is a room with a view of the surrounding landscape - two side windows (can be fully opened for ventilation) and one on the roof are included as standard.
When unfolded, the area of the tent is 210 x 130 cm, and the total weight of the structure is 58 kg. The tent has a comfortable high-density polyurethane foam mattress built in and lined with a breathable cotton blend. The tent provides protection against insects, and also has an additional blackout function. It is important that the awning can support up to 140 kg on the Porsche 911 and up to 190 kg on other heavier models.
In order to pitch the tent on the roof of the car, you need to open the lockable safety latches, lift the body and open it with two gas springs. After that, it will be enough to spread out the floor area of the tent and stabilize the awning using a telescopic ladder. At the end, it remains just to set up the tent and pull it up with four symmetrical posts.
The tent will be available at the Porsche partner stores for 4,980 euros. Official deliveries are expected in November 2022. Buyers will be offered two versions of the awning - Black/Light Grey and Black/Dark Grey. In the near future, Porsche Tequipment will also introduce additional accessories such as sleeping bags, heated blankets and organizers for shoes and bags.
