2019 Porsche Macan review

It was the benchmark before this update and no surprise it's still the benchmark SUV, blending sublime ride comfort with sports car-like handling.

2019 Porsche Boxster GTS review

It's hard to improve on perfection, yet Porsche continuously manages it. But, is the improvement on the Boxster GTS pushing it too close to 911 territory?

The Porsche Targa High Country Tour in a 718 Cayman GTS

Sports cars are designed to be driven hard. Foot to the floor, tyres gripping, the engine singing, and you don’t even glance at the speedometer. Try doing that on a public road, though, and say goodbye to your car and licence. But what if you could do all that legally? The Targa Australia rally series is just that...

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...

2018 Jaguar F-Type 2.0 auto v Porsche 718 Cayman PDK

We’ve been here before with Jaguar and Porsche’s compact sports cars. Germany won the first couple of CarAdvice battles, when the Boxster S pipped the F-Type V6 S convertible in 2013 and the Cayman GTS defeated the F-Type S coupe two years later. Honours were then even in October 2016 when we couldn’t split the 718 Boxster and F-Type V6 S...

2018 Jaguar F-Pace 25t R-Sport v Porsche Macan (4cyl) comparison

You could pitch an XJR against a Panamera, or an F-Type against a Boxster or Cayman. Yet the absolute domination of SUVs in today’s sales numbers suggests the most relevant Jaguar versus Porsche comparison pits the F-Pace against the Macan. Many automotive purists would prefer neither existed, believing them to be a slight on two brands with impeccable sporting pedigrees...

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...

1980 Porsche 924 review

Timing is, as they say, everything. Let’s suppose you arrive at work one day, point to your colleagues, laugh, then announce in a loud voice you’ve won the lottery and you’re “outta here, suckers”… Before you buy a ticket. See, it’ll simply end in tears all ’round. But good timing, as it happened, was with Porsche back in the 1970s...
