The true story behind Porsche's ultra-rare barn find

It’s hard to imagine today, but the Porsche 911 wasn’t always called the ‘911’. Having unveiled the successor to its popular 356 at the 1963 Frankfurt motor show it was billed as the Porsche 901, its internal project number. Production of the 901 started in the autumn of 1964 but a trademark dispute with Peugeot, which claimed it owned the rights for three-digit car numbers with a ‘0’ in the middle, went in favour of the French brand...

2020 BMW X3M Competition v Porsche Macan Turbo: Performance comparison review

The Macan Turbo and X3 M may wear practical SUV bodies, but are infused with the sports car DNA that made legends of the Porsche and BMW brands. So, which is the most worthy of the performance badges they wear?

Old v New: 2020 Porsche 992 911 Carrera v 996 911 Turbo comparison

However many accolades you want to throw at the Porsche 911 Turbo, there is none more telling than to how it is referred. It is the definite article. Not just ‘a’ turbo, but ‘the’ Turbo. Since a KKK turbocharger was first strapped to the back of the 930, the forced-induction 911 has needed no other name to establish its dominance...

Which electric car has the best battery warranty?

As more Australians consider buying electric cars, automotive brands are likely to face scrutiny over the warranty periods on their most expensive component: the on-board battery packs. Improvements in charging infrastructure and battery technology have eased concerns about their practicality and usable driving range, meaning electric car batteries are likely to get more use in the coming years as they cover more kilometres...

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...

2012 Porsche Cayenne Diesel review

I was drawn to this car for the space. The size was perfect to meet my current needs, but after that the positives just kept coming. When I first test drove the car I expected it to feel like a truck. A big, 8-speed, diesel SUV would surely be loud and heavy. That was a big mistake. I was shocked at how quiet it was (not silent, but quiet for a diesel), and it didn't feel heavy at all...

2014 Porsche Boxster S review

There is not much in life that is more fun – at least with your clothes on – than driving down your favourite back road with the roof down, a fresh breeze against your face, the sunlight through the overhanging trees creating patterns of light and shade as you sweep through one corner to the next...
