2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS review

Yes, another GT3 RS review, and yes, you don't have to read it because it's as amazing as you think it is. But wait, this review is different.

2019 Porsche 911 review

There's no mistaking the latest Porsche 911 for anything other than the icon it is, but this 992 generation is on another level entirely.

2019 Porsche Macan S review

The first big revamp of Porsche's Macan range has arrived. Is it 'almost new-generation' as its maker claims or closer to the facelift it appears to be? Let's find out in the newish V6-powered S version.

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...

2019 Porsche 911 Speedster unveiled, Australian availability confirmed

Alex Misoyannis • Porsche has revealed its hotly anticipated 911 Speedster, a limited-edition model built to as a salute to the now superseded 991.2 generation 911. The Speedster is as close to a convertible GT3 as we’ll ever get, and only 1948 examples will be produced – in honour of the first Porsche 356 registered in June of that year...

Mercedes-AMG G63 drags Audi RS3, Porsche Cayman GTS

Much has been made of the fact Mercedes-Benz slots a twin-turbo AMG V8 into its G-Class. Sure, the G63 looks like an old-fashioned off-roader, but it's fast enough to make sports cars nervous in a straight line. It might weigh 2500kg, but 430kW and 850Nm are serious outputs...

EU charges BMW, Daimler, Volkswagen for colluding on emissions cleaning technology

According to an investigation by the EU's anti-trust regulator, BMW, Daimler and Volkswagen worked together between 2006 and 2014 to stymie competition in developing emissions cleaning technology. The so-called "circle of five", which included engineers from Audi and Porsche, are said to have "coordinated their AdBlue dosing strategies, AdBlue tank size and refill ranges...

2018 Porsche 718, 911 recalled

Porsche Australia is recalling certain 2018 718 and 911 models over concerns of faulty airbag sensors. The German marque reports affected vehicles have airbag sensors in the sides of the vehicle "that may not have been tensioned properly".

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...
