Video: Audi R8 v Ferrari F8 v Porsche 911 Turbo S - Drive Car of the Year 2021 Best Super Sports Car

The Audi R8 Performance represents the pinnacle of the R8 range, quattro system present and accounted for, not to mention aggressive style and a screaming NA V10. Ferrari’s F8 Tributo – despite the turbocharger – is a very ‘Ferrari’ approach to the segment, with dramatic styling and blistering speed...

Video: Audi RSQ8 v BMW X5 M v Porsche Macan GTS - Drive Car of the Year 2021 Best Performance SUV

While the laws of physics dictate heavy and tall sporty SUVs will never imitate a true sports car, several manufacturers have proven that driving enjoyment can indeed be derived from this vehicle type. BMW was one of the first with its 2009 X5 M – and the third-generation version is among our finalists here...

Video: 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo Review

Turbo – it’s a word that carries a sense of reverence whenever it sits on the shapely derriere of a Porsche – and in the case of the 2021 911 Porsche Turbo, it also asks a question that relates to another letter. Do you really ‘need’ an ‘S’… ?

2020 Porsche 718 Cayman review

After dreaming about Porsche ownership for over 40 years, it has finally happened. Previous to the Cayman, I decided to try what was on offer from Europe in the form of a Golf R Mk7.5 and then a 2018 Audi RS3. Both cars impressed me with their build quality and performance, but the Cayman really shines in the handling and overall quality built into the car...

2014 Porsche Boxster S review

I find that Porsche ownership is a strange thing. As a brand, they sit toeing the line of attainable sports cars and all-out Supercars. I loved my 911 for its uniqueness in that sense. Usable, rewarding and a certain feel that you just can’t match with other marques. But when I took the 718 out, I was left feeling a little empty...

1986 Porsche 944 Turbo review

Unfortunately I no longer own my 1986 944 Turbo as I sold it almost ten years ago. And as it so often happens, what was once considered quite an unfashionable Porsche is now becoming quite a sought-after model. Thinking about the 944 in this way I do feel pangs of regret that I no longer have it...

2018 Porsche Macan review

We have had our base-model Macan (or Macan as I will refer to it) for around 12 months. The first thing I learnt when looking at this car is that Porsche don’t need to pay a marketing department – the owners and enthusiasts more than sort that out! Just check out on forums and reviews to see the passion and the push to spend up big...
