By the 9s – Every Porsche 900-series type codes from 901 to 999

When it comes to automotive model codes, it’s fair to say we’re all familiar with the number 911, and probably 944 and 928, but did you know about 942 or 915? Porsche has used 900-series numbers as both internal and external codes since the first production-code of the Typ-901 911 in 1963...

2020 BMW X3M Competition v Porsche Macan Turbo: Performance comparison review

Old v New: 2020 Porsche 992 911 Carrera v 996 911 Turbo comparison

However many accolades you want to throw at the Porsche 911 Turbo, there is none more telling than to how it is referred. It is the definite article. Not just ‘a’ turbo, but ‘the’ Turbo. Since a KKK turbocharger was first strapped to the back of the 930, the forced-induction 911 has needed no other name to establish its dominance...

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...
