Porsche 911 GT2 RS and The Scarborough Hotel

There are few cars that conjure up fear and trepidation like the latest incarnation of the Porsche GT2 RS. For starters, it’s the most powerful production-series 911 ever built and harnessing massive reserves of turbo-driven grunt – like 515kW and 750Nm of torque from its flat-six. It’s a potent bit of kit and clearly the kingpin of the brand’s production-series range...

2019 Porsche Panamera GTS review

The Porsche Panamera GTS straddles the gap between the V6-powered 4S and the manic Turbo. But is it worthy of Zuffenhausen's famous 'GTS' badge?

Meeting your heroes: The Autohaus Porsche 911 SC Grp 4

There’s an old saying about never meeting your heroes, about how the perception of someone or something is often better than the reality. So what happened when we threw the keys of one his hero cars – the Autohaus Hamilton-built Porsche 911 SC Group 4 –  to our own Adam ‘AK’ Morris? You’ll have to watch the video to find out...

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...

2019 Porsche Macan Turbo spied sans camouflage

The facelifted Porsche Macan Turbo has been spied devoid of any camouflage, giving us a clear look at the upcoming performance hero ahead of an anticipated reveal before the end of the year. Not much really distinguishes this vehicle from the standard facelifted Macan revealed in July, though there's a larger cutout spanning the width of the front bumper, along with the large squared-off tailpipe finishers sticking out of the rear...

Porsche 935: How it was developed

Porsche has given fans of its exclusive 935 race car a more detailed look into its development process, in a video released by its 9:11 magazine. The clip features interviews with exterior designer Grant Larson, 935 project leader, Kay-Alexander Breitbach, and Matthias Scholz, overall project manager for GT customer racing, along with some stunning footage of the car in the studio and on the track...

2019 Porsche 911 nears production

Porsche is getting ready to release the new 911 at the 2018 Los Angeles motor show later this month, putting the rear-engined sports car through its paces in (very) hot, cold, wet and dry environments. Torture testing new cars is a critical part of the development process undertaken by every brand, not just Porsche...

2020 Porsche 911 GT3 spied up close and personal

The next-generation Porsche 911 GT3 has been spied again, but this time much more clearly and in greater detail. Unlike the previous set of photographs captured at the Nurburgring Nordschleife, this latest prototype was snapped up close and at much lower velocities than the previous car...

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...
