Does the #savethemanuals hero work with paddle shifters?
You either adapt or face obsolescence
Deep inside the German car companies, something very big indeed is shifting. Inside five years, they'll drastically reconfigure how they design, develop, build, and sell.I'd love to tell you what sort of cars this means we'll get, but
But the carmaker’s are still deciding how to execute their next iterations
Porsche's CEO has confirmed that the 718 will be replaced, but his firm hasn't yet decided whether to power the new Boxster and Cayman by electricity or gasoline. And he says there will be a 918 Spyder successor.Some 18
It’s called the Heritage Design Edition
A retro tribute. Or in Porsche-speak, a 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition. We can divide that into two distinct elements if you split the name between '4S' and 'Heritage,' which is worth doing as those three little words at the
Courtesy of a €70-million investment
Porsche has just invested another €70 million (P4.06 billion) in Rimac, increasing its stake in the Croatian tech company from 15.5% to 24%.Since Porsche first invested in the company in 2018, Rimac has doubled its workforce to nearly 1,
The perfect pedal-powered companion
Porsche wasn't done when it revealed the Taycan Cross Turismo late last month, as the German carmaker had a couple new sets of wheels built to match its just-unveiled all-electric wagon up its sleeve, too. These, though, are of
It depends on F1’s next engine regulations which will be introduced in 2025
Big changes are set to happen in Formula 1 in a few years. New engine regulations will be introduced in 2025, and it's expected that these new F1 engines will be-to put it simply-more sustainable.Now, apart from the
Basically a Taycan that’s a little taller and much roomier
In 2020, a third of all Porsches sold in Europe had an electric or hybrid drivetrain. By 2025, it'll be more like half. The fully electric Taycan sports sedan is already a big catalyst of change, having outsold the Boxster and
“Another beautifully balanced, highly entertaining Porsche”
This is a prototype of the Taycan Cross Turismo, the arrival of more metal at the rear, an off-road package, and a Gravel Mode in the drive setup being among the very few things we can think of that make Porsche'
With none other than the carmaker’s GT division boss
Andreas Preuninger is the boss of Porsche's GT car division, in charge of stripping weight and applying wings (and stickers) to 911s for over two decades. No one knows more about hard-core rear-engined sports cars than him. Except maybe
This thing—the Taycan Cross Turismo—has been spotted on public roads
About two years ago, Porsche showed us a glimpse of the Taycan Cross Turismo. It was expected to "arrive in showrooms toward the end of 2020," but of course, COVID-19 happened.But that's the past. Sort of. The point is,
It’s nicknamed ‘Project Sandbox’
The Gemballa family may no longer have any involvement in the company that bears its name-it was sold to a third party after the death of founder Uwe Gemballa in 2010-but they're still in the business of building outrageous
Now’s your chance to own one
Safari-style Porsches are nothing new. In fact, we've featured quite a few of them on Top Gear Philippines already. Rugged, versatile, and packing performance only Stuttgart can deliver, it's not hard to envision why countless enthusiasts consider these babies
Time to geek out
Brrrrrnnnnggg. The bell has gone, break time is over, and it's time for your next lesson: Engineering, with Porsche's Andreas Preuninger as guest teacher.Today's topic? The new double-wishbone front suspension fitted to the Porsche 911 GT3 that
“The idea is that there’s no change in the engine necessary”
There's a new Porsche 911 GT3. And as ever, it uses a flat-six engine free of turbochargers and able to sing its way to 9,000rpm. As naturally aspirated sports cars drop like flies around it-even within the Porsche
Wilder inside and out
Petrolheads, assemble: It's a new Porsche 911 GT3. Which is basically like saying, "It's a new Bowie album" to the music nerds. This is benchmark sports car, the one by which the steering feel, chassis composure, and engine response of
These paint/sticker jobs defined the cars as much as the underlying tech did
In 1993, Subaru debuted its new Prodrive developed Group A Impreza rally car, known as the Impreza 555, along with a new title sponsor, cigarette manufacturer State Express 555. Complete with a distinctive blue-and-yellow color scheme, the 555 name and
Can you imagine driving this fast inside any building?
Believe it or not, there's an official Guinness World Record for the fastest speed achieved by a vehicle...indoors. It sounds dangerous and just downright bananas, but also a lot of fun, too. Look away, mothers who told us not to

“I’d have sworn it was a rear-drive 911 Carrera”
Interesting car, this: the £70,690 (P4.63 million) baby Porsche Taycan. It's the only flavor of Porsche's electric fastback with no extra letters or words after its name-no '4S' or 'Turbo' topper. This is as basic as the
Two for the price of one
Lego and Porsche already have history. Remember the brilliantly detailed Technic sets of the 911 RSR and the GT3 RS? And then there were the little Speed Champions kits of the same RSR and the 911 Turbo 3.0. All brilliant.This
