Porsche 911? There's an App for that

Receive an invitation to try the newest Porsche 911 at The Bend Motorsport Park, Australia's newest race track, and you don't have to ask me twice. Well, we were specifically invited to try out Porsche's all-new application called 'TrackPrecision'...

Classic Marques: The Story of Porsche – Part 3

In 1998, the year when Ferry Porsche passed away, his eponymous company celebrated its 50th anniversary. By then, Porsche AG had fully recovered from its earlier financial crisis, mostly thanks to the successful restructuring plan of CEO, Wendelin Wiedeking...

2019 Porsche Macan S v BMW X3 M40i comparison

Porsche's facelifted Macan S brings a freshened look, performance bump and infotainment lift. But can it beat out the mainstay BMW X3 M40i for blending practicality and sportiness?

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...

Six-cylinder power is returning to the Porsche Boxster and Cayman line-ups, three years after the new generation 718 twins launched with four-cylinder engines. The Porsche Cayman GTS 4.0 and Boxster GTS 4.0 – powered by a slightly detuned version of the 4...

Porsche sales up 10 per cent in 2019

Porsche posted sales growth of 10 per cent last year, recording 280,800 sales worldwide on the back of particularly strong form in Europe and Asia.

Mercedes pips BMW in global sales race, Volvo the rapid mover

All car manufacturers like to put a positive spin on things, but 2019 was a largely positive sales year for luxury brands worldwide. Most of the bigger players that have released calendar year sales figures showed growth, with the exception of Jaguar Land Rover. Mercedes-Benz recorded 1.3 per cent sales growth worldwide to 2,339,562 vehicles...

Porsche, Ferrari and Lamborghini boost sales despite slowest market in eight years

The top end of town treated themselves to record numbers of supercars in 2019 while the rest of us did it tough. Ferrari posted its fifth record in a row – and the seventh all-time high in nine years – while Lamborghini notched up its second record in a row and the fourth in the past five years...

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...
