2019 Porsche Cayenne and Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe review

If the Cayenne Turbo isn't quite quick enough for you, Porsche has taken the wraps off the even faster Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid. It's a mouthful, but does it give you a big smile in return? Paul Maric finds out.

Classic Marques: The Story of Porsche – Part 2

We are in the early 1970s, 50 years after Ferdinand Porsche (1875-1951) founded his design and engineering consultancy firm and started making history. His son, Ferry Porsche (1909-1998) has evolved his father’s company into a respected sports car manufacturer with increasing sales, technologically advanced R&D facilities and a strong name in endurance racing...

2019 Porsche 718 Boxster Spyder review

The Porsche 718 Spyder promises to deliver all the retro appeal of the famous 550 Spyder with all the modern conveniences. The 4.0-litre flat six, manual gearbox, and brilliant chassis, sweeten the deal.

2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid: walkaround, road and Autobahn review

If the Cayenne Turbo isn't quite quick enough for you, Porsche has taken the wraps off the even faster Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid. It's a mouthful, but does it give you a big smile in return? Paul Maric finds out.

2019 Porsche Cayman GT4 review

As far as ‘pure’ sports cars go, the Cayman GT4 - unfettered by technological burden and devoid of an engine behind the rear axle - might in fact be the best that Porsche has to offer. It’s ballistically quick, and crucially easier to drive at nine-tenths than a 911, and it’s so bloody capable on track, you’ll fall in love with it more each lap...

Porsche Museum Tour: Inside the Porsche dream factory

Few brands elicit the sort of starry-eyed thoughts that come about at the mention of Stuttgart's beloved Porsche. Given an opportunity to tour the iconic manufacturer's museum and production facility, we couldn't possibly say no.

2019 Porsche Cayenne Coupe review

Here's the Cayenne Coupe! If you were bugged when Porsche launched an SUV, you'll love this: a 'coupe' version of that SUV. And, if money is no object, the flagship Cayenne Turbo is hard to beat. It might be expensive, but there are really only two other SUVs that are faster than it on the road.

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...

2020 Porsche Taycan to include free internet, Apple Music subscriptions

The teaser program for the Porsche Taycan continues to march on, with company releasing a picture of the car's dashboard, and revealing details about its infotainment package.

Porsche Type 64: Auction blunder sees historic racer unsold at Monterey

The auction of a car designed by Ferdinand Porsche in Nazi Germany resulted in what could be politely described as a snafu or, in the words of one auction patron, a “massive f*** up”. The 1939 Type 64 – retroactively and somewhat controversially referred to as a Porsche – failed to find a buyer at the RM Sotheby’s auction in Monterey, California over the weekend, according to Bloomberg...

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid pricing and specs

Porsche has taken the wraps off its fastest Cayenne ever, with pricing announced for the top-specification Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe.

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...

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...
