Driven: Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Edition

We get to do some pretty cool things at CarAdvice sometimes. Like this, the time we visited Porsche's Exclusive Manufaktur facility at its German headquarters. Immediately after, we were beckoned across the road, where a fleet of 911s belonging to the Porsche Museum sat gleaming in the Stuttgart sun. Take your pick, we were told...

2018 Porsche Cayenne review

The revised 2018 Porsche Cayenne is actually the fifth version of the popular large SUV – if you include midlife updates. It continues its push as the performance SUV to watch with a potent blend of power and balance.

2018 Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid review

The price isn't for the faint-hearted, but the technology under the Panamera Hybrid's skin is state of the art. It's a performance weapon with some green credentials too.

2018 Porsche 911 Carrera T review

The 911 Carrera T is perhaps the new frontrunner as the smartest buy in the 'normal' 911 range. Its blend of raw driver interaction and value is hard to beat – just so long as you stay away from the expensive options list.

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...

The puzzle, which is a 1:18-scale model has 108 plastic pieces and comes complete with moving wheels.

Luxury EV comparison: Six SUV challengers square off

The electric car revolution is finally becoming a reality, and not just at the fringes of the car industry. Tesla obviously got the jump on making EVs cool, and deserves some plaudits for it. But now the market's mature, luxury brands are making their moves, spending tens of billions of dollars in the process...

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...
