2019 Porsche 718 Boxster Spyder review

The Porsche 718 Spyder promises to deliver all the retro appeal of the famous 550 Spyder with all the modern conveniences. The 4.0-litre flat six, manual gearbox, and brilliant chassis, sweeten the deal.

Inside the Porsche dream factory

Few brands excite enthusiasts like Porsche. Constant refinement of its core product, and its ability to apply its DNA to new segments, means you don’t have to be a car person to appreciate what the brand stands for. It also cashes in on its heritage like almost no-one else, calling on an overstuffed catalogue of legendary racers, road cars and concepts to create a steady stream of expensive, exclusive models that make collectors all frothy and excited...

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?

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...

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...

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...
