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...

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.

2017 Porsche 718 Cayman S review

Read the full article here. Messing with a successful and praised formula is never a good idea. Especially when that formula relates to one of the sweetest sounding six-cylinder engines on the market. Well, Porsche has messed with the formula, ditching the Cayman’s naturally aspirated six for a turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine...

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...

Audi TT RS Coupe v Porsche 718 Cayman S comparison

The all-paw 2017 Audi TT RS Coupe or the rear-drive 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman S? It’s German versus German in this $140,000 turbocharged sports car battle…...

2016 Porsche Boxster S v Jaguar F-Type V6 S comparison

It has almost become a landmark moment in our evolution as humans. A neat title to slot in after all that complex baby, child, teenager, adult transition stuff. The midlife crisis. More than just a Faith No More song, it's a chance, once the children are relatively self-sufficient, the career trajectory is on a clear path and ideally there is a bit of equity in the family home, to put the focus back on yourself for what might not be a particularly smart decision...

My first Porsche, and why a 718 is better than a 911

Halfway through a week-long loan of a Porsche 718 Spyder, the penny dropped. To be specific, it happened after a long drive. There I was, sitting at a café, wistfully admiring its beauty, unlike my usual self. What happened? The Porsche vying for my attention was neither a 911 nor a GT-series car. Just a 718, in fact...
