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
An impressive and ultra-expensive collection of automotive art
Art Basel Miami is an annual event for kooky art types. Y'know, the people who see a banana from a local supermarket gaffer taped to a wall and think, 'That's amazing! I should pay $120,000 for that!' only for
Creative marketing or Forced partnership?
This is it then. We covered the initial announcement and were skeptical. Then we saw some sketches and made a few jokes. But now we have the final thing-the Porsche-designed Star Wars ship for the upcoming The Rise of Skywalker
This model deserves the accolades it has garnered
Very possibly. The Porsche Taycan 4S actually comes in two flavors. The top one is almost a Taycan Turbo. The main difference is a smaller rear motor, but it still has the two-speed gearbox. We're talking a hardly-lame 571hp
Apparently, it “behaves with the agility of a sports car”
The headline might have come straight out of the 'motoring clichés' handbook (available on request!), but the tech sounds pretty cool. Porsche has developed a new, quad-motor electric setup for its SUVs that allows you to, ahem, plow "through the
But there is a ‘but’
This used to be a very easy review to write. Since its 2005 conception, this has been perhaps the most complete car Porsche makes. Sure, the 911 range has more breadth (arguably too much breadth), but the Cayman has always offered much
The spacecraft will make its film debut in the upcoming Star Wars installment
Porsche has revealed a few sketches of a spaceship it has designed to support the upcoming film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. This is all fine because it's a cool thing and is a fun exercise to distract us from
But the current one will live on and be facelifted for certain markets
Porsche is close to a decision on making a ground-up all-electric car that will eventually replace the 718.Oliver Blume, the German carmaker's CEO, told Top Gear: "In all our segments-sedans, SUVs, and two-door sports cars-we
Let's enjoy this while we can
It's a delightful nod to the past. The Spyder badge is famous in Porsche history, having being attached to some truly evocative road and race cars dating right back to the '50s, while the engine is a hark back a little
