‘Direct printing’ tech lets Porsche take personalization to a whole new level
It’s about time
In fairness, Porsche has never been afraid of a big, public U-turn, a model some governments would do well to take inspiration from. Its latest-and perhaps greatest-backpedal yet comes in the form of this new 718 GTS Cayman and
And it’s still in working order
This, dear readers, is what commitment looks like. In 1976, Canadian businessman Bill MacEachern took delivery of a brand-new Porsche 911 Turbo. Rather than lock it away in the hope it might gain value, or use it only sparingly at weekends,
It is over-engineered in signature Porsche style
The image below-if you squint-shows what the new Porsche 911 GT3 will probably look like. In more prosaic terms, it's the new Aerokit optional on all coupe versions of the 992-generation Porsche 911.It's not some quick
The guy in the white helmet has his first go with Porsche’s EV
Ah, yes, the Porsche Taycan, one of the more hyped electric vehicles (EVs) launched in 2019.But that buzz wasn't just about its speed, its looks, its tech, nor even the questionable 'Turbo' in its name. The world was anticipating the
Which one was your favorite?
Ah, the Super Bowl, the USA's most-watched sporting event. This means millions of eyes glued to the television screen, which in turn means big advertising bucks from the who's who of about every industry there is.On this day,
Despite a few compromises, the spirit is still there
What we have here is a second coming. The original Cayman GT4 launched in 2015 to unanimous, unfaltering praise-and one of the wildest waiting list scraps in modern performance cars. Porsche had finally allowed its littlest car to fulfill potential previously
Course correction isn't a bad thing
If you were to ask a true Porsche purist the three key elements that sum up the essence of a 911...then you probably need to get out more and stop attending such boring dinner parties.Say you went ahead and asked,
Music to our ears
In a world of increasing complication, Porsche's boss has promised Top Gear that his firm will keep building straightforward drivers' cars as long as people want them."We will continue with our puristic sports cars-GT3, GT3 RS, GT2 RS, and
Maybe Porsche’s really listening to us after all
You certainly can't accuse Porsche of not listening. Nor being afraid of a public U-turn. We could probably do with having them in government. A decade after switching its horrid PDK button shifters for conventional paddles, it's put six-
Carmakers seem to be adopting a wait-and-see attitude
While the car industry tells us car sharing is the future, it's not actually going well in the present. The joint BMW-Daimler service ShareNow (formerly DriveNow and Car2Go) has announced it's pulling out of the UK (where it operated
A fitting tribute
Jacky Ickx is a six-time Le Mans winner, with four of those victories coming in Porsche colors between 1976 and 1982. That means the folks at Weissach are rather fond of him and motorsport-loving Belgians are equally as proud of
911s as wide as the eye can see
If you're a fan of arse-engined cars from Stuttgart, you've probably heard of Rauh-Welt Begriff. Or RWB, to give it its shorter moniker. They're the crazy Porsches with outlandishly widebody kits and the kind of wings that
Speed has many forms
In July 2010, James May did his best to max the ultimate Veyron at the Ehra-Lessien test track. You'll have seen him manage a massive 417kph on TopGear telly-just before Bugatti's test driver Pierre Henri Raphanel lifted the
They were either jaw-dropping or facepalm-inducing
In 2011, Ferrari followed up its line of elegant two-door four-seater GT cars with the FF. And the world couldn't believe its eyes. A hatchback. A hatchback with four-wheel drive. A 4x4 hatchback with a V12 developing 651hp.
The end of an era for the German brand
Nothing spells 'iconic Porsche sports car' more than the 911 does. But of all the different iterations of this famous German nameplate, none has seen more success-at least as far as production volume goes-than the previous-generation 991.The 991
Is money the deciding factor?
In recent years, when Mercedes-Benz and Porsche have put their minds-and money-into certain areas of motorsport, they've tended to do rather well.Famously, Porsche spent rather a lot on its 919 Hybrid program for LMP1 endurance racing between
“The most capable, versatile, dual-sport air-cooled 911 on the planet”
Something quite wonderful. An early Christmas present, you might say. It is a 964-generation Porsche 911, converted by Russell Built Fabrication (RBF) to perform herculean feats of off-roadery.The company says it is "the most capable, versatile, dual-sport air-
Zero to 100kph in 2.8sec
The Taycan, Porsche's first-ever full-electric sports car, is coming to the Philippines. PGA Cars, the brand's official local distributor, has announced the EV's impending arrival and, naturally, we're excited.No exact details yet regarding what will
The GTS variant doesn’t lag far behind the Macan Turbo in terms of performance
Been trying to buy a Porsche Macan, but found it either too fast or too slow? Good news! The middle ground is here. In most areas of the Porsche range, 'GTS' is the badge we recommend, and so it may be the
