2021 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 PDK review

A wonderful track-focussed driver’s car is even quicker now with the dual-clutch PDK transmission choice. But is it more appealing, more involving, more fun?

2021 Porsche 911 GT3 review: International drive

Like an outlaw on the run, Porsche's naturally aspirated, regulation-defying 911 GT3 may be on borrowed time.

2021 Targa Tasmania: It’s bloody wonderful but not without its dangers

Targa-style  tarmac road events are massive fun, but with ever-lurking danger being part of the high-speed menu. This was emphasised during the 2021 Targa Tasmania with the tragic deaths of three competitors. Now questions are being asked…...

Porsche 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 manual review

Everything purists could want: naturally aspirated, mid-engined, and manual. So why doesn't the Cayman GTS delight like it should?

Video: 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo Review

Turbo – it’s a word that carries a sense of reverence whenever it sits on the shapely derriere of a Porsche – and in the case of the 2021 911 Porsche Turbo, it also asks a question that relates to another letter. Do you really ‘need’ an ‘S’… ?

Video: 2021 Porsche Cayman 718 GT4 Review

The perfect Porsche? I know what you're thinking. How is a 718 Cayman the perfect Porsche? I mean, this is a 982, not a 992. And when you consider that when the 718 launched, it was hardly met with huge fan praise because they swapped out the traditional flat-six for a turbocharged four. Although, that's not a problem we're faced with in this car...

2014 Porsche Boxster S review

I find that Porsche ownership is a strange thing. As a brand, they sit toeing the line of attainable sports cars and all-out Supercars. I loved my 911 for its uniqueness in that sense. Usable, rewarding and a certain feel that you just can’t match with other marques. But when I took the 718 out, I was left feeling a little empty...

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...
