Porsche Owner Car Reviews

2006 Porsche Boxster review

Note: I owned this car for 12 months back in 2013–14. We live in a world that celebrates, and yearns for, that which is perfect. Take a look at the feed of one of those dime-a-dozen Instagram ‘influencers’ – it’s all blue skies, white bikinis, beautifully lit rooms with Scandinavian furniture and #blessed hashtags...

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...

1980 Porsche 924 review

Timing is, as they say, everything. Let’s suppose you arrive at work one day, point to your colleagues, laugh, then announce in a loud voice you’ve won the lottery and you’re “outta here, suckers”… Before you buy a ticket. See, it’ll simply end in tears all ’round. But good timing, as it happened, was with Porsche back in the 1970s...

1955 Porsche 356 Speedster review

If you have had the opportunity to purchase your dream car, it is a moment in your life you will never forget. It comes after years of saving and searching for the perfect car, and then the day comes when you set your eyes on ‘the one.' A test drive, many sleepless nights later, and then finally handing over – more often than not – a large sum of money, you pinch yourself at the sight of it in your garage...

2014 Porsche Cayenne Diesel Platinum Edition review

Porsche Cayenne, what a great car! It does the job, with excellent fuel economy and it's extremely comfortable with the 18-way adjustable seats. The car is both admirable and gorgeous and turns a lot of heads, thanks to the combination of a black exterior with a white interior, and those black 21-inch wheels set off by the red brake calipers...

2013 Porsche Cayenne Diesel Review

EXPENSIVE BUT WORTH IT This car is now 3 years old and done 63,000 km. It still drives, feels and looks like new. There have been no problems with it. Nothing has broken or fallen off, no squeaks or rattles, the leather shows no signs of wear, the doors still close with a rock solid thunk. This car is so well made you can see where the ridiculously high price has been invested...

2016 Porsche Cayman GTs Review

I never intended to buy this Porsche. I went on a journey, test driving a variety of vehicles including M3, M4, C63AMG and then moved on to the F-type R/S and even a Lotus Exige S. I then ended up in a Porsche dealership and test drove the base 2.7l Cayman - it was sublime, in fact it made cars like the M3 and C63AMG feel ponderous and blunt...

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...

2014 Porsche Boxster Review

An affordable true convertible sports car with comfort (comparing the 918). Its a car that turns heads and with compliments every time it leave the garage.The interior of black leather on a white car with 20" black Carrera rims, it has a very masculine feel. With the added Sports Plus and can really move, though I do see the petrol gauge fall quickly...

2001 Porsche Boxster Review

So you have spent the last 6 months car-less because you have moved too close to work to drive and haven't got any off street parking. Its now obvious that you've made a huge mistake, you love driving and being without your own mode of conveyance has cause sections of your soul to die off slowly. Worse still you rely on public transport. You have no choice...
