2019 Porsche 911 Speedster review

Porsche has produced the first new 911 Speedster since 2010, and while it's hugely expensive, it's also the first proper GT-based Speedster and one of the most exciting 911s ever.

REVIEW: Porsche 911 Speedster

The Speedster is a purebred road car and one of the most accomplished sports cars on the planet, as well as one of the most enjoyable cars ever from behind the wheel. I never thought I’d ever say that about a 911 soft-top, but this car is a spectacular triumph in every regard bar its sky-high asking price.

Singer 911 REVIEW: A quick spin

You need a lot longer than 20 minutes to properly appreciate all the Singer 911 has to offer, but you need a lot less time to discover this might just be one of the world’s most desirable motorcars.

2019 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring v Lotus Evora GT410 Sport comparison

The notion of comparing the oddly matched couple of new Lotus Evora GT410 Sport with the latest Porsche 911 GT3 Touring might seem preposterous enough that I’d be lucky to even capture just one person’s interest. But one person’s curiosity counts, right? Even if that person is yours truly? The impetus for this match-up is the Evora in newly arrived GT410 Sport form...

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...

2018 Porsche Cayenne range review

The third generation of Porsche Cayenne has introduced more changes under the skin for the large SUV than the restrained remodelling of its exterior facade suggests. There’s been much effort, a few shake-ups, and a lot of massaging that has culminated in positive impressions of the revised range in reviews to date: a 9/10 rating (by yours truly) at the global launch of the S and Turbo, a slightly more sober 8...

In car news, it appears a BMW Z4 M is off the cards, Volvo Australia is working on capped-priced servicing, Mazda is preparing inline-six petrol and diesel engines, and a Hyundai N EV sports car is coming with thanks to a Rimac partnership...

2020 Porsche Taycan interior leaked

The interior of the new Porsche Taycan electric sedan has been leaked ahead of its unveiling later this year. This image was posted on the Porsche Taycan EV Forum, and shows what's claimed to be a pre-production version of the Taycan's cabin. If this low resolution image is accurate, the Taycan's interior will be almost identical to the one found in the 2018 Mission E Cross Turismo concept...

2019 Porsche Cayenne S Coupe pricing and specs

Porsche has slotted a mid-range 'S' variant into its Cayenne Coupe range, priced from $166,600 before on-road costs. Sitting between the base Cayenne Coupe and the range-topping Turbo, the S is powered by a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 making 550Nm of torque between 1800 and 5500rpm, and 324kW of power...

Porsche: Legendary 1939 Type 64 up for auction

Perhaps the most significant car in Porsche's history, the 1939 Type 64, will be auctioned in Monterey, California this August. Only three examples were built by the engineers who went on to build Porsche's first mass-produced car, the 356. Of the three built, only the car you see here survived World War 2. In other words, this is a very rare beast...

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...

2006 Porsche Boxster review

Note: I owned this car for 12 months back in 2013–14. We live in a world that celebrates, and yearns for, that which is perfect. Take a look at the feed of one of those dime-a-dozen Instagram ‘influencers’ – it’s all blue skies, white bikinis, beautifully lit rooms with Scandinavian furniture and #blessed hashtags...

1994 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet Tiptronic review

I always feel that the cars you love most are the cars you lusted after when you were a late teenager. The Porsche 911 993 variant was released when I was 17, and I immediately thought it was the most beautiful car I had ever seen. For most of my life, I have had more chance of flying to the moon than buying a Porsche. Children and a mortgage will do that...

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera review

A Note from the Editor: Alex is car enthusiast from Sydney who makes regular contributions to the CarAdvice community.  The year is 1981. Porsche’s sales are declining, especially in the USA – customers were just not buying the latest models, the 928 and 944. To rectify this, Porsche hired a new CEO – Peter Schutz...
