A Porsche Cayenne has rescued a Chevrolet Silverado that got bogged towing a caravan on an Australian beach.

    A set of two videos were posted to the Friends who like getting bogged at Inskip and Places of Fun Facebook page on January 10, 2024.

    It’s unclear on which beach this was filmed, though Queensland number plates are visible.

    It appears the tide on the beach came in quicker than the Silverado driver could react.

    “When 7,000 kg changes from High range to low range at the wrong time. Buried to the axels [sic] and needs a quick yank. 2nd gear wide open throttle does it,” reads the caption.

    The first video shows two men setting up a reverse recovery with equipment including snatch straps. One man is trying to dig out some of the sand from underneath the caravan.

    The Silverado appears to be more bogged than the caravan with sand halfway up its tyres.

    After all the straps are in place the second video begins with the Porsche Cayenne accelerating away from the caravan with a good few metres before it engages the strap connected to the caravan.

    It continues to pull the caravan several metres before coming to a stop.

    It’s unclear what’s under the bonnet of this 2009 Cayenne, though in its most powerful incarnation that year – the Turbo S – it used a twin-turbo 4.8-litre V8 with 404kW of power and 750Nm of torque.
