Although the Porsche Company was founded in 1931, the first Porsche car developed wasn't until 1939. Proud of their German Heritage, Porsche continues to be one of the most prestigious car makers and also the world's largest race car manufacturer. In Australia there are 5 different models available including the 718 Boxster and Cayman, Panamera, Cayenne, Macan, and 911. Porsche is part of the Volkswagen Group.

The car names you've probably been mispronouncing this whole time

Fancy yourself a car enthusiast? While being an enthusiastic car owner and a good driver are both part of your overall street cred, a lot of it comes down to being able to talk the torque. And where many of us can come undone when showing off our automotive prowess is butchering the pronunciation of brand or model names as badly as Kim from Kath & Kim used to pronounce 'chardonnay' (she said 'kar-don-aye', for the record)...

2020 Porsche 718 Boxster GTS 4.0 review

Porsche's 718 GTS 4.0s are crackers on-track. But how does the naturally aspirated, manual-only Boxster fare as a road car?

2020 Porsche 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 review: track test

Porsche has fitted the wondrous naturally aspirated 4.0-litre boxer six into its Cayman and Boxster 718 GTS. Here, we hit the track in the manual-only coupe to see whether going old-school is the new Cayman cool.

2020 Porsche Macan GTS review

Porsche’s sportiest Macan, the GTS, now fits a ‘Turbo-lite’ engine. Is the revised mid-ranger the new sweet spot of the range?

REVIEW: 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe

Porsche's Cayenne Coupe has hit local hot-mix. But which of the fresh-face three-tier range is our pick of fast SUV pack?

REVIEW: 2020 Porsche Taycan 4S electric car

Josh travels to Finland for a first drive in the all-electric Porsche Taycan 4S. Is this a worthy Tesla Model S rival?

2020 Porsche Taycan review | Electric vehicle

The 2020 Porsche Taycan is the brand's first electric vehicle, more than five years after we saw the concept. It's as good as we were hoping, too.

Porsche Comparisons

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...

2014-2019 Porsche Macan recalled over fuel leak risk

Porsche Cars Australia has recalled 5328 examples of its model-years 2014 to 2019 Macan, Macan S, Macan GTS and Macan Turbo.  The recall relates to a risk that the service cover for the fuel pump may come into contact with the fuel filter flange if the rear seats are occupied, potentially damaging the flange. If damaged, it could result in a fuel leak, which may cause a fire...

Electric cars in Australia: Every model available (and some nearly here)

As Australian sales of electric cars continue to rise and industry bodies urge the Federal Government to make charging infrastructure a national priority, it appears EVs have progressed beyond buzzword status to present-day reality...

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...
