2020 Porsche Macan Turbo review

The long-running benchmark for performance SUVs has been given a nip and tuck – can it retain its place at the top?

2020 Porsche Taycan review

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.

2020 Porsche Taycan review: Ride-along

Porsche may not be first to the party, but it has well and truly hit the ground running with a mentally fast electric vehicle. Paul Maric straps in for a ride.

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.

2020 Porsche Taycan review | Electric vehicle

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 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 Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid 'GT' Coupe spied

Darcy Foster • A hardcore version of Porsche’s Cayenne Coupe has been spied testing at the Nurburgring. Hiding under the guise of a Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe, the model is believed to be a prototype of an incoming ‘RS Coupe’ potentially with upwards of 600kW. At first glance, pictures depict a regular Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe...

Porsche launches online sales in Europe, no plans for Australia

Porsche has launched online sales in Europe, allowing owners to specify, order, and place a deposit on their vehicles remotely. Only the very last steps of buying a car – "customer authentication and final conclusion of the contract" – will take place at a dealership. Online sales will only be offered in Germany initially, before expanding throughout Europe in 2020...

Porsche 911 manual here in 2020

Porsche has confirmed a manual version of the latest 911 will be offered in Australia from next year, but the company hasn't confirmed whether it will be offered on the base Carrera. As before, the manual offered in non-GT 911 models will be a seven-speeder. Porsche says the 100km/h sprint takes around four seconds, and the manual is about 10kg lighter than the dual-clutch PDK automatic...

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...
