2018 Porsche Macan review

We have had our base-model Macan (or Macan as I will refer to it) for around 12 months. The first thing I learnt when looking at this car is that Porsche don’t need to pay a marketing department – the owners and enthusiasts more than sort that out! Just check out on forums and reviews to see the passion and the push to spend up big...

2012 Porsche Cayenne Diesel review

I was drawn to this car for the space. The size was perfect to meet my current needs, but after that the positives just kept coming. When I first test drove the car I expected it to feel like a truck. A big, 8-speed, diesel SUV would surely be loud and heavy. That was a big mistake. I was shocked at how quiet it was (not silent, but quiet for a diesel), and it didn't feel heavy at all...

2014 Porsche Boxster S review

There is not much in life that is more fun – at least with your clothes on – than driving down your favourite back road with the roof down, a fresh breeze against your face, the sunlight through the overhanging trees creating patterns of light and shade as you sweep through one corner to the next...

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...
