2019 Porsche Boxster GTS review

It's hard to improve on perfection, yet Porsche continuously manages it. But, is the improvement on the Boxster GTS pushing it too close to 911 territory?

The Porsche Targa High Country Tour in a 718 Cayman GTS

Sports cars are designed to be driven hard. Foot to the floor, tyres gripping, the engine singing, and you don’t even glance at the speedometer. Try doing that on a public road, though, and say goodbye to your car and licence. But what if you could do all that legally? The Targa Australia rally series is just that...

2018 Porsche 718 Boxster GTS and 718 Cayman GTS review

Porsche has upped the power, performance and purpose of its 718 sports car range to create the 2018 Boxster GTS convertible and Cayman GTS coupe twins. Are these the new fat-free driving kings from Stuttgart?

2017 Porsche 718 Cayman S takes a ride with vintage Porsches

Road trips can be good for the soul. Driving for the pure enjoyment of it, on scenic roads, taking the long way 'round, provides a chance to unwind, relax and try to push all your worries away. It’s just you, the car, and the road. Turn the stereo up and sing to your heart's content, or turn it down to hear the engine do its thing...

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...

2016 Porsche 718 Boxster Review

Read the full review here. For the past 20-years, the Porsche Boxster has been a somewhat achievable entry point to iconic, flat-six Porsche sports car ownership. But now, with the 2016 Porsche 718 Boxster, the 2.7-litre flat-six has made way for a 2.0-litre, turbocharged, boxer-four – pushing that six-cylinder Porsche goal just a little bit further away...

Porsche 718 Boxster : 2016 Geneva Motor Show

The rebranded Porsche 718 Boxster and 718 Boxster S sport more powerful new four-cylinder engines, and significant revisions both outside and in. However, Australian buyers will pay steeper prices for the privilege when the range launches in mid-2016. The entry prices are up by between $8400 and $12,300...

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...

2019 Porsche 718 Boxster Spyder spied in the snow

The upcoming Porsche 718 Boxster Spyder has been spied again, this time during cold weather testing in snowy Europe. Following the launch of the 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport last week, it looks like the German marque is readying the flagship versions of its Cayman and Boxster for an official reveal in the coming months. While the 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport comes with a 3...

2019 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport unveiled

The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport was unveiled overnight sporting not only 30 extra kilowatts, but also natural-fibre composite body parts. The new Clubsport is powered by dry sump 3.8-litre flat-six engine making 313kW of power at 7500rpm, and 425Nm of torque 6600rpm. All of that is channelled to the rear wheels via a six-speed dual-clutch transmission and a race-optimised mechanical rear differential lock...

Porsche 718 T: Boxster, Cayman gain pared-back variants

Porsche has added another variant to its 718 Cayman and Boxster range, today announcing a pared-back 718 T for both coupe and drop-top. As with the 911 T revealed last year, the 718 T aims to offer a simpler, lighter (and slightly more performance-oriented) take on the base Cayman formula. To that end, it rides on a PASM sport chassis that sits the cars 20mm lower than their respective bases...
