What Sports Car Do You Want To See Turned Into An Off-Roader Next?


If the upcoming Porsche 911 Dakar and the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato have proven anything, it’s that there are few things in this world more delightful than an unexpected off-roader. So, today we’re asking what sports car you would like to see become an off-roader next?

Even though the concept of a sports car becoming an off-roader is not even close to being new – the Porsche 911 Dakar, after all, is an homage to a car that raced decades ago – there is joy to be had in seeing a car normally associated with being as low, as wide, and as delicate as possible, being turned into a high-riding, rugged off-roader.

So there must be no shortage of vehicles that would look good with the off-roader treatment, right? If the Lamborghini and the Porsche prove anything, it’s that it doesn’t really matter where the engine goes, any layout can go off-roading.

In fact, Porsche’s rear-engine, rear-wheel drive setup and the traction advantage that comes with placing the engine over the driven wheels is part of what was being advertised with Porsche’s early rallying activities. And now many off-road racing trucks have their engines in the middle, like the Huracán?

So anything from the C8 Corvette to the Ferrari SF90 could conceivably be transformed for off-roading. As a fan of a classic coupe, though, and a believer in the healing powers of oversteer, I wouldn’t be opposed to seeing something a little more classical, not to mention affordable, and less all-wheel-drive go off-roading.

The likes of the Nissan Z or the Toyota GR 86 would look rather nice with big tires and a high-riding suspension. What do you think, though? What sports car could most reasonably get the off-road treatment next, and which one would you most like to see receive it?
