Speaking with Road&Track at the car's launch in Spain, a Porsche spokesperson has confirmed those improvements make the '992-generation' 911 Carrera S marginally quicker than the car it replaces around the Green Hell...

2018 Nismo GT-R v Porsche 911 GT3 Touring comparison

If you placed me in a room with a Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package and a Nissan GT-R Nismo and ordered me to pick just one to live with for the rest of my days, without first letting me drive them, I’d make a terrible decision. Before these two ultimate tourers even arrived at CarAdvice’s Melbourne office, I had a sneaking suspicion I was going to be on Team Nissan...

Fiat Chrysler to settle US diesel emissions cases for $1.1 billion

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) will pay out roughly US$800 million ($1.1 billion) in fines, fixes and compensation to settle claims some of its diesel engines cheated their way past emissions regulations. The company had been accused of using an emissions-testing defeat device, like the one used employed by the Volkswagen Group in its Dieselgate engines, which could detect when a car was undergoing bench-testing and alter its operation to emit a legal quantity of pollutants...

2019 Porsche 911 Cabriolet revealed

Porsche has revealed the all-new 911 Cabriolet in Carrera S and Carrera 4S guises, ahead of its debut Down Under during the second quarter of 2019.

Singer 911 review: The Porsche money can't buy in a hurry

Florence, Alabama is probably the last place on Earth I expected to see, let alone drive, a bespoke Porsche 911 built by Singer Vehicle Design out of Sun Valley in Southern California. That’s no slight on Alabama, by the way, as there’s plenty of serious car money in the deep south – but trucks (F-150 Raptors and the like) are more sought after in these parts...

Porsche Taycan to get Turbo-badged flagship

A potential customer for the Porsche Taycan has revealed its naming structure, proving the company isn't quite ready to let go of internal combustion norms just yet. Alex Roy, an American journalist with a pre-order slot for the pure-electric Porsche, posted a picture of a letter from the company on Twitter, revealing the three models will be labelled Taycan, Taycan 4S and Taycan Turbo...

Porsche explains how to pronounce Taycan - video

Porsche has dropped the Mission E moniker for its first electric vehicle, and replaced it with Taycan. Shorter, sure, but much trickier to pronounce. To that end, the brand has released a new video explaining how to correctly address the four-door, four-seat EV. Roughly translated, it means 'lively young horse' – a reference to the rearing horse in the Porsche crest...

The CarAdvice Winners Circle 2018, Mandy Turner: Porsche 911 GT3

My choice of Porsche 911 GT3 for Winners Circle 2018 demands some back story. There’s no other brand that gets my heart racing than Porsche. When I imported a red 1974 911 from America in 2010, I realised it was the type of car I had been searching for for a long time. A car proud of its history, a car gorgeous from every angle, and a car that uses curvy mountain roads as its playground...

CarAdvice Winners Circle: Porsche 911 GT3 RS

I could talk all day about how the 911 GT3 drives, but the sound that thing makes as the dial winds its way around the tachometer, made my hair arms stand on end. Sure, you can get an adrenaline rush by skydiving, or bungee jumping, but for me, it’s driving a Porsche GT3. It’s such a pure supercar that is not only addictive to drive but is unforgettable...

Porsche 718 T: Boxster, Cayman gain pared-back variants

Porsche has added another variant to its 718 Cayman and Boxster range, today announcing a pared-back 718 T for both coupe and drop-top. As with the 911 T revealed last year, the 718 T aims to offer a simpler, lighter (and slightly more performance-oriented) take on the base Cayman formula. To that end, it rides on a PASM sport chassis that sits the cars 20mm lower than their respective bases...
