Modern Classic Review: 2002–2005 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S (996)

We take a look away from the new car launches to assess some bonafide modern classics. What better way to start the series than with a Porsche that has the best bum in the business.

The true story behind Porsche's ultra-rare barn find

It’s hard to imagine today, but the Porsche 911 wasn’t always called the ‘911’. Having unveiled the successor to its popular 356 at the 1963 Frankfurt motor show it was billed as the Porsche 901, its internal project number. Production of the 901 started in the autumn of 1964 but a trademark dispute with Peugeot, which claimed it owned the rights for three-digit car numbers with a ‘0’ in the middle, went in favour of the French brand...

REVISIT: 2018 Nismo GT-R v Porsche 911 GT3 Touring comparison

Godzilla takes on the hero of Stuttgart in this Japan v Germany face-off.

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...

2019 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring v Lotus Evora GT410 Sport comparison

The notion of comparing the oddly matched couple of new Lotus Evora GT410 Sport with the latest Porsche 911 GT3 Touring might seem preposterous enough that I’d be lucky to even capture just one person’s interest. But one person’s curiosity counts, right? Even if that person is yours truly? The impetus for this match-up is the Evora in newly arrived GT410 Sport form...

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...

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...

2008 Porsche 911 Carrera Review

What an incredible car. The Porsche dealer recommended I keep it simple for my first 997 experience, so a low mileage, non 4WD, base engine with Auto (so the missus could drive) second hand unit. Their approach was to keep it pure (auto withstanding). I will be eternally grateful as a result, the car was bought unseen, being traded from an enthusiast who was first in line for the next generation/shape, but who always kept it simple/pure...

1987 PORSCHE 911 Review

Air cooled Porsche are an exceptional car to drive everyday in any condition, and are still pretty cheap, compared with a new Camry! But people shall be aware that driving such a car as a daily driver is not cheap, because of their age, they will have some issues, even if I must say that those care are very reliable and those 3.2 flat 6 are really bullet proof...
