Camping in luxury with Porsche’s rooftop tent.
Leo Carrillo State Park in Malibu, California is the perfect spot for those who don’t love camping but still want to experience the great outdoors. Porsche’s new rooftop tent makes it easy, with its simple setup and comfort. It’s available through Porsche’s Techquipment accessories catalog and fits on cars with roof rails and crossbars. It’s pricey at just over $7,000, but if you’ve already spent the money on a brand-new Porsche, it’s worth it. Setting it up at the campsite is super easy and takes just 10 minutes. The tent is insulated, and with just a regular sleeping bag and some flannel pants, you’ll stay warm. It can be a little tight for two people, but there’s plenty of room for one.
The tent is easy to take down as well, and it doesn’t affect the car’s performance. The Turbo Cross Turismo has a 93.4-kWh battery pack and sends a maximum of 670 horsepower and 626 lb-ft of torque to a pair of electric motors. The extra weight of the tent doesn’t hinder its estimated 0-to-60-mph time of 3.1 seconds. The EPA-estimated range isn’t hindered too much either, and it’s easy to beat the estimated 233 miles. The major thing you notice while driving with the tent is the extra noise, but you can take advantage of 270-kW charging speeds at a 350-kW public charger.
