A Porsche saved by a Dacia
Porsche Macan stuck in Morocco
Porsche’s smaller SUV was launched in Morocco a few days ago. It was at this event that a Macan in trouble was saved by a Dacia Duster. And it wasn’t the lack of off-road capabilities of the former that caused the mishap, but the stupidity of the test-drivers.
Our colleague Zsolt Csikós, who was present at the event, made a few photographs of the incident and gave us the scoop on why the Porsche needed help. The Macan was being test-driven by two British journalists taking turns, and one of them drove the car (able to go off-road but isn’t a true off-roader) somewhere where it got high-centered and the wheels were literally floating on air. Not even the best SUVs manage to escape from such situations by themselves. Thankfully the Duster coming to help, rented by one of the photographers attending the event, managed to get the wheels of the Porsche back on the ground.
The incident sets a good example of how off-road vehicles tempt the drivers to go beyond their depth. If such a car is in bad hands the better its off-road capabilities, the bigger the chance of getting stuck hopelessly.
