If you're not one for celebrating special models that don't improve performance, this 2023 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet America will be right up your alley. Porsche has gone beyond just slapping on some new paint, unique trim, and special wheels. There is some performance to go along with the history behind the America name-plated Porsche, besides the incredibly long name. Read More
Porsche Taycan GTS Hockenheimring Edition
Porsche is celebrating the 90th anniversary of the Hockenheimring track with a special edition of one of its models. The Porsche Taycan GTS Hockenheimring Edition is the first special edition based on the brand's first electric vehicle. It features several elements to set it apart. It all starts with the Stone Grey paint and "Bronzite" accents to bring a dash of flair. On the inside, Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur have selected black leather for the upholstery, while the contrasting elements are finished in a shade that is called "Island Green." Read More
This entry-level variant in the Taycan lineup is cheaper than a 911 and Panamera, making it an interesting prospect. It gets one less motor than the Taycan 4S and less standard equipment. Horsepower and torque figures change depending on whether you get the standard 79-kWh battery or pay $5780 for the 93.4-kWh Performance Battery Plus. The bigger battery gives you 469 hp and 263 lb-ft of torque when using launch control, or 375 hp in regular operation. According to Road and Track, the "base model could be the pick of the lineup". Read More
With 750-horsepower, launch control and gravel mode in a family-friendly wagon, this may be the most practical car on the planet. Take the screaming fast all-electric Taycan Turbo S—the fastest, most powerful version atop the Taycan range—and make it a wagon with a little more ground clearance (0.78 inches) and more headroom (3.62 inches) in the rear seats, and you have the Taycan Turbo S Cross Turismo. The all-wheel-drive Taycan Turbo S Cross Turismo has one electric motor per axle, with a one-speed transmission up front and a two-speed transmission in the rear. Read More
The performance-oriented all-electric station wagon has arrived and we like what we see. The Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo gets the same dual-motor all-wheel-drive as the Taycan sedan featuring a Gravel drive mode, standard air suspension, and minor ride-height increases. With a permanent-magnet motor at each axle, the rear drives a two-speed automatic and the front a single-speed gearbox. Power is a kind of nuts 616 hp and 626 lb-ft, which we think is more that enough for the kids daily trip to school. Feels much the same as the sedan version but looks way cooler. Read More
Porsche Taycan 4S Cross Turismo
Porsche's Taycan Cross Turismo is the wagon addition to the Taycan EV family and the 562-hp 4S variants is probably our favorite version. Why? Because the Taycan Cross Turismo's combination of looks, speed, and space put it into the realm of the now-legendary wagons like the Audi RS6 Avant and Mercedes-AMG E63 S wagon and they are some of our favorite cars on the planet. Do yourself and your family a favor and get this baby now. Read More
Porsche Taycan 4 Cross Turismo
With a spacious interior and two luggage compartments, providing comfort and convenience for four, the Taycan Cross Turismo body style is more practical than its sedan sibling. Unlike the Taycan sedan, all Cross Turismo models come standard with the larger of the two available battery packs, an 83.7-kWh unit. In the 4, that pack powers the two motors to an available 469 horsepower when using launch control. During normal use, you get 375 horsepower and 368 pound-feet of torque. Read More
Porsche Taycan (Base) Sport Turismo
In 2022 the base model was released in this new Sport Turismo body style. This entry-level variant in the Taycan lineup is cheaper than a 911 and Panamera, making it an interesting prospect. It gets one less motor than the Taycan 4S and less standard equipment. Horsepower and torque figures change depending on whether you get the standard 79-kWh battery or pay $5780 for the 93.4-kWh Performance Battery Plus. The bigger battery gives you 469 hp and 263 lb-ft of torque when using launch control, or 375 hp in regular operation. Read More
The Sport Turismo bodystyle is unique the to Taycan GTS for U.S buyers. It is the sexiest bodystyle in the range and more practical than the sedan too. It isn't the most powerful in the range; but it gets a wealth of standard equipment, especially the good performance stuff. The Taycan GTSSport Turismo sits between the 4S and the Turbo and has 590 hp and 623 ft lbs, good for 0 - 60 mph 3.5 seconds. It feels much more rear-driven than the Turbo and has way more engaging handling characteristics as a result. Read More
Porsche Taycan GTS
Most of us have come to know what Porsche’s GTS lineage stands for: a focus on vehicle dynamics while deferring in terms of sheer horsepower to the most powerful in the range; a unique look and a wealth of standard equipment, especially the good performance stuff. Same formula for the Taycan GTS. It sits between the 4S and the Turbo and has 590 hp and 623 ft lbs, good for 0 - 60 mph 3.5 seconds. It feels much more rear-driven than the Turbo and has way more engaging handling characteristics as a result. Read More
The Boxster 718 T was released for the 2020 model year as more sport-oriented versions of the base 718 models. As such, the T features the same 2.0-litre flat-4 engine as the base 718 but adds performance-oriented options such as Porsche's sport suspension system, the Sport Chrono package, and a limited-slip differential, along with minor cosmetic differences including special decals along the lower doors, a smaller-diameter steering wheel, door pull straps in place of standard door handles, wheels from the Porsche 992 Carrera S, and black rear badging. Read More
This Panamera variant pairs a 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V6 with an electric motor to serve up 552 hp and dynamism usually associated with non-hybrid coupes. The best part? The 'E-Hybrid' badging means this sedan also delivers the benefits of greater fuel efficiency and lower emissions. Then there's the fact that all electrified Panameras for the 2021 model year have 27% more battery capacity. Read More
Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo
The Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo is extreme indulgence at its peak. A family wagon with almost 700 hp on tap and the ability to launch hard enough to strain your back muscles. Porsche claims the car can hit 60 mph in just 3 seconds. It's impressive on its own, but even then, it seems the carmaker was being conservative as some motoring journalists were able to clock a time of 2.7 seconds. That's faster than a Ferrari 488 GTB! Read More
Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid SUV
The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid models, mix ultimate performance with comfort and Infotainment. The twin-turbo V8 engine and electric motor combination make it an absolute monster. So much so, that it became top dog in the Porsche SUV lineup, relegating the 541-hp Cayenne Turbo to second place. This is an SUV that has the price, prestige, and performance. Generating 670 combined horsepower and 633 lb-ft of torque.  Read More
Porsche is stuffing a built twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter into the Cayenne Coupe, and it's the most powerful V-8 the German automaker has ever produced. It makes 631 horsepower in this new Turbo GT model, and Porsche says its factory driver Lars Kern set a new SUV lap record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife in it lapping the 12.9-mile course in 7:38.9. The new Cayenne will arrive in the U.S, only in Coupe form, next year starting at $182,150. Read More
The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe mixes ultimate performance with comfort and Infotainment. The Turbo GT has all the attributes to be ahead of the game from the start. The twin-turbo V8 engine and electric motor combination make it an absolute monster. So much so, that it became top dog in the Porsche SUV lineup, relegating the 541-hp Cayenne Turbo to second place. This is an SUV that has the price, prestige, and performance, but it is the Coupe that has the looks. Generating 670 combined horsepower and 633 lb-ft of torque. Read More
Porsche Cayenne S Coupe
The 434-hp Cayenne S goes from 0 - 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds, same as the SUV. In fact, the Coupe and SUV share everything from engines to suspension components to interior trimmings and onboard tech, with only a sloping roofline setting them apart. Our advice. If you want less practicality with a cool fastback roofline, the Porsche Cayenne S coupe is a more stylish version of the Cayenne S. A great all rounder. Read More
Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe
Porsche fitted the Cayenne E-Hybrid with a turbocharged 340 hp 3.0-liter V6 engine combined with a 136 hp electric motor for the drivetrain. Total combined power output reached 462 hp. The whole assembly was mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission that sent the power in all corners. Now it comes with a coupe body? Not sure the combination makes much sense to us, but hey this is Porsche and they know more than we do I guess. Read More
Porsche Cayenne Coupe
The Cayenne Coupe is a version of Porsche's largest SUV with a heavy dose of extra swagger. Porsche introduced the new variant a year after the debut of the third-generation Cayenne, for the 2020 model year. While we like the look of the coupe, it feels out of place on the base Cayenne (which is more a family SUV choice). A nice package, but we would recommend spending a bit more and going for the Cayenne S or GTS.  Read More
Three letters are all it takes to describe the glint in your eye and intense goosebumps – GTS. Pure and thrilling: the Cayenne GTS models bring a motorsport atmosphere to the road. Enough power to strive for more freedom: with 453 hp and 457 lb.-ft. of torque, the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine exudes a drive that helps achieve your goals. The striking black accents on the front fascia, sideskirts and aerodynamic roof spoiler combined with the coupe bodystyle. Read More
2023 Porsche 911 Sport Classic
A total of 1,250 examples of the limited-edition model by Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur. While the original was a Carrera S, this time around, the power and handling come from a much feistier car, the Type 922 Turbo S. Returning is that amazing grey paint, that swooping ducktail spoiler, and the double-bubble roof. All-new is a mildly detuned Turbo S engine producing 543 HP and 442 lb-ft of turbocharged torque, mated to what can only be called a gift from the gods, a 7-speed manual gearbox. Read More
Porsche Panamera Turbo S Executive
This 'limousine' performance sedan offers the benefits of the non-executive Panamera Turbo S - plenty of power, athletic handling and overall elegance. However, the 'executive' badging means more space on the interior, especially for the rear passengers, courtesy of a wheelbase that's about six inches longer than the regular Panamera sedan. The powertrain is carried over unchanged from the non-executive version. Read More
Porsche Panamera Turbo S
The Porsche Panamera Turbo S is unquestionably a performance beast, with plenty of power and presence to go with its muscular stance. However, the best bit about the Panamera Turbo S may be how it cleverly masks its brute strength and capabilities beneath an elegant layer of the silky-smooth ride and top-class luxury. In that sense, it perfectly fits the bill of a luxury performance sedan - just what Porsche set out to achieve. Read More
Porsche Panamera GTS Sport Turismo
The Panamera GTS Sport Turismo costs only $6,900 more than the sedan variant in base trim. With the same powertrain and better practicality, this performance wagon may just be the most significant direct threat to the Panamera GTS sedan. The extra boot space, up to 49 cubic feet, with the rear seats folded down, makes the Panamera GTS Sport Turismo perfectly suited for a weekend trip to the shopping mall. Read More
The Panamera Hybrid models have their strengths, but there is still nothing quite like the visceral experience behind the wheel of a high-performance vehicle with a formidable internal combustion engine, a formidable unit like the V8 found in the Panamera GTS (short for 'Gran Turismo Sport). It plays a significant role in portraying the character of the sports sedan as a lively performance and yet, family-friendly vehicle. Read More
First, there's the extra boot space, courtesy of the wagon body style. It gives the Sport Turismo models more practicality over the sedans. Also, the Panamera 4S E-Hybrid is no slouch in the power department. It combines a 443-hp V-6 with a hybrid system to crank out 552 hp. That makes it the third-most-powerful Panamera variant, behind the Turbo S E-Hybrid and the Turbo S. In full attack mode, this family hauler can punch its way to 60 mph in less than four seconds Read More
The Turismo Panamera models offer more practicality than the sedans, with the wagon body style offering valuable additional cargo space. However, there's also plenty of performance on offer. Take the Panamera 4S Sport Turismo, for example. It boasts a total of 1,384 litres with the rear seats folded, ideal for a weekend shopping trip. However, under the hood lies a potent engine in the form of a turbocharged V6 unit. Read More
The Panamera 4S Executive is just a 'stretched-out' version of the regular Panamera sedan. The wheelbase has been lengthened by as much as 15 centimetres, an increase that mostly benefits the rear passengers. The Panamera 4S Executive sits above the Panamera 4 Executive, and they share several similarities, such as the panoramic sunroof, heated rear seats and power sunblind in the rear. Style-wise, the Panamera 4S Executive also boasts silver accents around the fenders and side skirts. Read More
The Panamera 4 is the first model in the Panamera lineup to feature all-wheel-drive (evidenced by the '4' badging). A few steps above sits the Panamera 4S, a sedan that offers more oomph in performance. After all, that is why Porsche added the 'S' for 'Sport' to the name. It all starts with the engine. The twin-turbocharged V6 has been upgraded and now puts out 443 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque. That's a significant increase from the 325 hp and 331 lb-ft of torque offered in the base Panamera 4. Read More
Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo
The single most important distinction between this model and the Panamera 4 Sport Turismo is the 'E-Hybrid' badging. With the E-Hybrid Sport Turismo, Porsche has been able to combine performance, ample space and fuel economy into one family-friendly package. Like the sedan variant, the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo is driven by a hybrid powertrain featuring technology from the 918 Spyder. Read More
The Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Executive is specially tailored for those who enjoy spending time in the back seat. The body has been lengthened by 15cm, creating valuable space for rear passengers in particular. It's essentially a long-wheelbase version of the Panamera, with enhancements like eight-way power adjustment for the rear seats, heated rear seats, and power sunblinds for passengers in the back. Read More
The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid still gets the 2.9-litre V6 - from the non-hybrid variant - that's good for 325 hp and 331 lb-ft of torque. In addition to that, there's an electric motor and battery combo that supply an extra 134 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. In all, the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid boasts a maximum combined output of 455 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, pushing the car well into sports car territory. The car weighs almost 5,000 lbs but will still accelerate to 60 mph in an impressive 4.2 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package. Read More
The Panamera 4 Sport Turismo favours a 'Shooting Brake' style rather than being a pure wagon. This is evidenced by its sloping roofline towards the rear, sacrificing cargo space for a more stealthy profile. In addition, there's the pronounced shoulder and elongated window line, which lend the vehicle its striking appearance. The car slots in just above the base Panamera in a lineup that includes up to twenty-five different variants. The '4' references the standard all-wheel-drive, while the 'Sport Turismo' badging hints at more power and agile handling compared to the base trims. Read More
The third generation of the Porsche Cayenne was unveiled in August 2017. In 2022, the Cayenne added the Platinum Edition to the SUV and coupe body styles. The Platinum Edition Cayenne applies a coat of Satin Platinum paint to a number of the vehicle's badges, as well as its fascia-mounted intake treatment and its distinct 21-inch wheels. Black exhaust tips and window trim add an extra hint of menace to the model. Read More
The 2023 Porsche Macan T brings touring style to the Macan. This new model sits between the base Macan and the midlevel S. Positioned between the base Macan and the midrange Macan S, the Macan T packs the same 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder found in the entry-level model, delivering 261 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque through a standard seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission. The German automaker says the powertrain is good for a 5.8-second 0-to-60-mph dash and a top speed of 144 mph. Unsurprisingly, those are the same factory performance estimates as the standard Macan when fitted with the optional Sport Chrono Package that comes standard on this T. Read More
In 1972 Porsche Design was founded. The celebratory car is a 911 Targa 4 GTS, painted and finished to commemorate the Chronograph 1, which Porsche says was the first all-black watch. Gloss black paint is highlighted by a Satin Platinum finish on the targa bar and wheels. Inside, the Edition 50 Years Porsche Design—as English majors, you have no idea how painful it is for us to type that—gets black-and-gray checkered upholstery, a slate-gray steering wheel, and plenty of limited-edition badging, including F.A. Porsche's signature embossed into the center armrest. The powertrain is standard for the Targa 4 GTS. Read More
The most significant change is the 4.0 litre six-cylinder boxer engine. This high-revving powerplant has been taken directly from the 911 GT3 Cup race car and develops 500 PS in the 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport – 75 PS more than the previous GT4 Clubsport model. In addition to many upgraded details, the focus in developing the new 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport was on further improving overall performance. The standard 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK) fitted to the car now uses all seven forward gears, rather than six. Read More
New for 2022 is the most exciting Cayman ever, the 718 Cayman GT4 RS. The GT4 RS is equipped with the same scintillating flat-six engine that powers the 911 GT3. It's a 4.0-liter unit that makes 493 hp and 331 lb-ft of torque in the GT4 RS. Porschephiles will notice that those figures are not quite as high as in the 911 GT3, which packs 502 hp and 346 lb-ft. Big numbers for a small, lightweight car. It is only available with a seven-speed dual-clutch to optimize lap times further. Nobody has driven it yet from the motoring public, but we eagerly await that day and will report back here. Read More
The Porsche Vision Gran Turismo concept is designed for the PlayStation video game, Gran Turismo 7. Porsche, like other automakers, has designed a car specifically for the game. While it may seem like a mid-engined sports car, the Porsche Vision GT is a pure EV. It features no traditional doors. Instead, the upper canopy opens up at the front to access the cockpit. The pure EV uses an 87 kWh battery that would last for 310 miles. The peak power output is a bit under 1,300 hp from an all-wheel-drive setup. The Porsche VGT can accelerate from 0-62mph in a plausible 2.1 seconds and max out at 217mph. Read More
The Porsche Mission R concept is intended to equal the performance of the 992-series 911 GT3 Cup. It features 900-volt fast-charging architecture, an 82.0-kWh battery pack, and modularly integrated front and rear motors with single-speed transmissions featuring straight-cut gears (typical in racing) and mechanical differential locks. The front and rear motors thus provide all-wheel drive and are identical; in "qualifying mode," they produce a total output of 1,073 horsepower, whereas "race mode" delivers 671 total horsepower. The Porsche Mission R is theoretically capable of a best 0-60-mph time of about 2.5 seconds and a top speed of 186 mph or so. Read More
The Porsche 356 SC, was the top-of-the-line variant in terms of performance for the 356 C Generation, sporting the highest specific output pushrod 4-cylinder engine ever available from Porsche with 107 HP. The SC engine produced 107 bhp at 5200 rpm and featured a stouter counter-weighted crankshaft, short skirt pistons, a more radical camshaft configuration, and large Solex carburetors. The SC was the natural successor of the previous generation Super 90 and represented the top-of-the-line variant for the final evolution of the Porsche 356. Read More
Also produced for the 1976 "model year", for the U.S. market, was the 912E, a 4-cylinder version of the 911 like the 912 that had last been produced in 1969. It used the I-series chassis and the 2.0 Volkswagen engine from the Porsche 914. In all, 2092 units were produced. In 1976, the Porsche 924 took this car's place for the 1977 "model year" and beyond. The power was supplied by a 4-cylinder high-performance fuel injection motor also used in the Volkswagen 411. Read More
Porsche made its first and most significant changes to the 930 for 1978 model year, enlarging the engine bore by 2 mm (0.08 in) to a total displacement of 3,299 cc (3.3 L; 201.3 cu in) and adding an air-to-air intercooler. The suspension benefitted from new anti-roll bars, firmer shocks and larger diameter rear torsion bars. While the increase in displacement increased power output and torque, it also increased the weight of the vehicle, which contributed to a substantial change in the handling and character of the car compared to the Earlier 3.0-Litre Models. Read More
The 911 Turbo was put into production in 1975. While the original purpose of the 911 Turbo was to gain homologation for the 1976 racing season, it quickly became popular among car enthusiasts. Ernst Fuhrmann adapted the turbo-technology originally developed for the 917/30 CAN-AM car and applied it to the 3.0 litre flat-six used in the Carrera RS 3.0, thus creating what Porsche internally dubbed as the 930. Total power output from the engine was 260 bhp and 254 ft lbs of torque. Read More
The replacement for the SC series came in 1984 as the 911 3.2 Carrera, reviving the Carrera name for the first time since 1977. This was the last iteration in the original 911 series, with all subsequent models featuring new body styling and new brake, electronic, and suspension technologies. Almost the same galvanised body as the SC. Engine was claimed to be 80 per cent new, and the first production 911 to feature an ECU to control the ignition and fuel systems. Read More
The 911 SC effectively replaced the 911 S and was one of Porsche's first models that was meant for the international market. It was sold as a cheaper alternative to the 911 Turbo. The SC used an unblown version the 930 Turbo unit that offered 180 to 200 bhp depending on model year. Options included the rear whale tail, front chin spoiler, Bilstein dampers, 16 inch wheels with Pirelli P7 tires and sports seats. Sometimes dealers lumped these options together to create their own sport package. It was available as a Coupe and Targa from 1978 - 1983, while the Cabriolet version was only available in 1983. Read More
As a successor to the Carrera 2.7 MFI, the Carrera 3.0 was fitted with a variation of the 930's engine without a Turbo. During its production period only 3,687 cars were made. The Carrera 3.0 was replaced by the Porsche 911 SC for model year 1978. Between 1976 and 1977, Porsche introduced the Carrera 3.0 with wide rear flares, optional whale-tail, and other luxury options. Built before the ‘911 SC’ it has everything the SC has, and more. It’s a different drive with more power @200bhp; more torque @188 ft/lb @4200rpm and it was 10% lighter too. Read More
For 1989, Porsche produced the 25th Anniversary Special Edition model to mark the 25th year of 911 production. The 1989 Porsche brochure lists production of 500 U.S. market cars, of which 300 were coupés (240 in silver metallic paint and 60 in satin black metallic), and 200 cabriolet models (160 in silver and 40 in black). All had "silk grey" leather with black accent piping and silk grey velour carpeting. Includes small bronze "25th Anniversary Special Edition" badges. Read More
The Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup features the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, the world’s best-selling race car. For this season, it’s the new generation. 510 hp, optimised intake manifold, electronic gearshift and power steering, fully digital cockpit, larger rear wing, and a double-wishbone front axle. This is a meaningfully upgraded race car. The new 911 GT3 Cup is taking on a great legacy. And it has already proven itself! Read More
Porsche will only build 30 examples of the Clubsport 25. Mechanically, it's similar to the regular GT2 RS Clubsport. It makes the 691 horsepower from a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six. But it gets many, many changes to the exterior and even the cooling system. As you can clearly see, the body has been lengthened, and it has also been widened. The latter is necessary to house the wide, low-offset 18-inch wheels taken from the Porsche 935, though without the aerodynamic covers. Read More
The Porsche 911 Black Edition was a limited production Carrera built at the end of the 997 generation. Based on the 3.6-litre 997.2 Carrera coupe and Cabriolet, the car was finished in plain black as standard, with Basalt Black Metallic as an option. The words ‘Black Edition’ are printed in black on the stainless steel door sill covers, and there’s a numbered plaque on the glovebox lid. 19-inch Turbo wheels were standard. Porsche built exactly 1,911 Black Editions, of which approximately 25 percent were intended for the U.S. market. Read More
The Cabriolet version of the new Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS is just as potent as its coupe sibling. It combines a 408 hp 3.8-litre flat six engine with intelligent all-wheel drive that delivers a further exhilarating dimension to the dynamics of the iconic rear-engined sports car. The 911 was first offered with four-wheel drive in 1989 and the drivetrain has been a popular option ever since. Now, the 911 Carrera 4 GTS broadens customer choice in 2011, building on the success of the two-wheel drive Carrera GTS that went on sale in December last year. Carrera 4 GTS power unit is the 3.8-litre flat six with power kit.

It is a sports car for the purist through and through. Read More
The 996 Carrera 4S Cabriolet is the convertible version of the slightly-uprated 996 Carrera 4. Introduced a year after the 996 C4S Coupe. The Carrera 4S Cabriolet was introduced in the lineup with the new engine and the Turbo bodywork. The cabriolet version of the Carrera 4S paired the aggressive bodywork and suspension of the Turbo with the base Carrera 4 drivetrain, though it didn't get the Turbo's huge rear wing. The three-layer canvas-top was powered and it needed 20 seconds to completely retract or cover the car, at speeds up to 50 kph (31 mph). For winter, the car featured an aluminum hard-top. Read More
Introducing this new top-of-the-range model, Porsche is once again placing a 911 Turbo Cabriolet right at the top of the family after a break of 14 years: From 1987 - 1989 the Porsche 930, as the first Turbo was code-named within the Company, set the first milestone in the history of these outstanding open-air sports cars. With cylinders still featuring two valves each at the time, the 3.3-litre power unit driving the first Turbo Cabriolet offered maximum output quite unique at the time of 300 bhp or 221 kW. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h was in 5.2 seconds and the car had a top speed of 260 km/h or 161 mph. Read More
In 2002, the standard Carrera models underwent a facelift. In addition, engine capacity was also increased to 3.6-litres across the range, with power up slightly on the naturally aspirated models. 2002 also marked the start of the production of the 996 based Targa model, with a sliding glass "green house" roof system as introduced on its predecessor. It also features a rear glass hatch which gave the driver access to the storage compartment. The 996 Targa is the rarest bodystyle in the series – only 5,152 were produced (all Mk.2 generation) between 2002 and 2005. Read More
Designed as a grand tourer, the Porsche Carrera 4 Cabriolet was the base all-wheel-drive version for the open-top 911 range in 2001. It offered enough comfort to be used as a daily driver, on all weather. The 996 Porsche was facelifted in 2002. Along with the coupe versions, the convertibles were reshaped also. There was not a big difference on the outside. It was the same sports-car and open-top grand tourer. The Carrera 4 Cabriolet, continued on through 2004, receiving the same updates as the Carrera, including the 3.6-liter engine. Read More
The 996 was initially available in a coupé or a cabriolet (Convertible) bodystyle with rear-wheel drive, and later with four-wheel drive, utilising a 3.4 litre flat-6 engine generating a maximum power output of 221 kW (300 PS; 296 hp).[7] The 996 had the same front end as the entry-level Boxster. After requests from the Carrera owners about their premium cars looking like a "lower priced car that looked just like theirs did", Porsche redesigned the headlamps of the Carrera in 2002. With the cabriolet, buyers have a choice between this version and the hotter Carrera 4S cabriolet. Read More
In 2002, all of the standard models received a minor makeover in 2002 which included Turbo-style headlights, a freshly designed front clip and an increase in engine capacity to 3.6L along with a subsequent 20HP boost. The bodies were more rigid which further improved handling and safety and the lower, stiffer X74 suspension became available as a factory modification. From the outside, it was hard to notice the difference between the 1998 version and the facelifted model. The main difference was on the headlights. Including the Mk 1 cars, the 996 Carrera Coupe sold 46,317 units. Read More
In 2002, the entire generation of the 996 was facelifted. The Carrera 4S Cabriolet was introduced in the lineup with the new engine and the Turbo bodywork. Many publications called the Carrera 4S the sweet spot in the 911 lineup when it was introduced, providing more performance than the base car without the exorbitant pricing of a Turbo or GT2. The Carrera 4S paired the aggressive bodywork and suspension of the Turbo with the base Carrera 4 drivetrain, though it didn't get the Turbo's huge rear wing. It’s easily identified by “Carrera 4S” badging and a large reflective strip on the rear end, spanning the gap between the taillights. Read More
Model year 1994. Carrera 4 Wide-Body for the U.S. Technically there is really no difference between the Carrera 4 Wide-Body and his RoW counterpart. At the front there are the for America usual black impact absorbers beside the fog lights, the frontfenders lack the side indicators, the rear bumper is equipped with the center piece with a small plate section and in the back window of a large third brake light is integrated. Significant differences, it is generally provided in the factory standard equipment.

Porsche 911 Speedster (Turbo-Look) (964)
In contrast to the 911 Speedster from the 1989 model year, the 964 Speedster was only offered and produced with the narrow body shape. In December 1991, the first wide bodied prototype based on a 964 Carrera 2 Convertible Turbo-Look was registered at Porsche AG, but it never made it ready for a series production. In response to recurring customer requests for Turbo-Look Speedsters - the optical characteristics of the wide body in combination with the flat windscreen and fiberglass cover had found many fans - Porsche converted the previously individually ordered, narrow Speedster in the exclusive department.

Porsche 911 ’30 Jahre’ Anniversary (964) (1993)
In March 1993, Porsche presented the Porsche 911 anniversary model “30 years 911” at the Geneva Motor Show. Since then, the special model is also called “Jubi” for short. Under the Porsche internal code M096, there is essentially a Carrera 4 with the wide turbo body but without wings. The 964 anniversary edition could be ordered with exclusive interior design and numerous possibilities of customization. According to Porsche, the special model was limited to 911 vehicles and manufactured in the model years 1993 and 1994. Read More
The 964 Carrera RS 3.8 was produced as a base for homologation for the venerable 3.8 RSR. It was unveiled in 1993 and produced in a very small series by Porsche’s Racing Department in Weissach-Flacht, and was an extreme evolution of the 964 Carrera RS that was released two years prior. It featured the wide-body look of the Type 964 Turbo, a massive rear spoiler, and three-piece “Speedline for Porsche” wheels with 235/40 and 285/35 tires, making it distinctively more aggressive in appearance than the fairly restrained styling of the Carrera RS of 1992 and capable of providing significantly more mechanical grip. Read More
The Porsche factory had 93 Turbo chassis left. These were all transferred to Porsche Exclusiv and hand built as the very special 964 Turbo 3.6 S. They were offered with normal, or ‘Flachbau’ slant nose front ends. While the vast majority of Turbo S’ were fitted with the ‘Flachbau’ nose as a no-cost option, the Turbo S could also be had with the traditional 964 nose as well. In all, 76 Flatnose cars were made while 17 non-Flatnose (known as Package option) cars were made. These cars were also fitted with the X88 option, which increased power to 380 hp. 75 flatnose units were produced. Read More
The 964 based Speedster was the 1994 Speedster which was based on the 964 Carrera 2 platform. There are far fewer 1994 911 Speedsters in the world than the 1989 model, with production reportedly totaled only around 936 units, less than half as many as the 1989 example. Whereas the 1989 Speedster was primarily an aesthetic package, the 964 version sought a happy medium between the regular Carrera 2 and the hardcore Carrera RS. It had the same engine as the base Carrera and didn’t have the same suspension bits as the RS. Read More
The original 1973 Carrera RS was available in Europe but not in the USA. Porsche decided to build the 1993 Carrera RS both to European spec and a limited number in compliance with US regulations. These US spec cars were assigned the name “RS America”. The intent was to create a basic lightweight, no frills 911 with minimal luxury options. The standard US Carrera 2 brakes, engine and gearbox were used. The RS weighed 2,945 pounds so it was almost 80 pounds lighter than a standard Carrera 2.  Read More
The Turbo-look Porsche 964 has always been a very desirable automobile, among them 1,532 Carrera 2 Cabriolets constructed worldwide. Within that group, there were some cars that were even more specialized. The Register says six Turbo-look cabriolets were pulled off the production line in Zuffenhausen and transported to the Porsche Exclusive shop in Weissach. Three of these six powerful and luxuriously equipped drop-tops were equipped with left-hand drive for buyers in Germany (Code C00), and the other three were fitted with right-hand drive Read More
Porsche 911 Turbo S2 (964) (1992)
A forgotten part of the 964s history is the Turbo S2. It was built to adhere to homologation rules so Porsche could participate in IMSA's sports car racing series. IMSA's homologation rules meant that Porsche had to build at least 200 road-going versions of the participating car, 20 of which needed to share most of the primary components of the race car. The 911 Turbo S2 was built specifically for this purpose and exclusively for the United States and Canada. The 20 homologation specials left the factory as stock 964 Turbos, heading immediately to California-based tuner for "S2" engine upgrades. Read More
Porsche 911 America Roadster (964) (1992 - 1993)
The American Roadster is essentially a turbo-bodied Carrera Cabriolet with Turbo suspension and brakes. Like the 356 America Roadster it was named after, the Type 964 America Roadster was a limited-edition, driver-focused convertible destined for the American market. Production for the America Roadster was limited at only 250 examples, and the model was only produced in 1992 and 1993. Its engine was a standard unit making 250 horsepower, but the special edition had the wide fender flares, suspension, brakes, and 17-inch Porsche Cup wheels of the 911 Turbo. Read More
Stuttgart. Porsche is celebrating the 25th birthday of its roadster family with a special anniversary model: the Boxster 25 Years. The limited edition is restricted to 1,250 units worldwide and is based on the GTS 4.0 model, which is powered by a 4.0-litre six-cylinder boxer engine with 294 kW (400 PS). It makes reference to numerous design features of the Boxster concept car that heralded the success story of the open-top two-seater at the 1993 Detroit Motor Show. The production version was launched in 1996 with hardly any changes in its visual appearance and is now in its fourth generation. Read More
The 2021 Cayman GTS 4.0 is the perfect car. The old GTS used a 2.5-liter turbocharged flat-4, and while it was a perfectly strong engine with lots of low-end torque, it lacked the personality and linear power delivery of a free-breathing flat-six. It didn't sound half as good, either. The GTS 4.0 was built to offer more performance and more grunt as well as a more aggressive design and all the good options included as standard. The new 4.0-liter engine is borrowed from the 718 Spyder and Cayman GT4, detuned to produce 394 horsepower and 309 pound-feet of torque. A 6-speed manual is standard. Read More
For testing purposes Porsche Motorsport built a few tarmac rally cars based on the Cayman 981 GT4 racing version. The Cayman rally car was the course car for the WRC (World Rally Championship) 2018 ADAC Rallye Deutschland. The FIA R-GT Cup was contested on tarmac rounds of the ERC and WRC, like the German WRC event. For Porsche, the entry of a concept study based on the near-production GT circuit race car was a critical test under real conditions. Read More
Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport (2015 - 2016)
In 2015, Porsche announced the car we all thought Porsche would never build. It has been a few years since it has been released and the excitement It was the first time Porsche introduced lets the motorsports guys in Weissach sprinkle their magic on a Cayman. With components sourced from the 911 GT3, an engine carried over from a Carrera S and a tweaked and tuned chassis, brakes and aerodynamics, Porsche’s engineers did their best to produce the perfect mid-engine sports car for road and track use. Read More
The Limited Edition Cayman S Black combines many of the high performance benefits found only in the 2012 Cayman R with many other desirable options off the list, options that when combined create a distinct personality for this special car. After the R hit the scene, many potential buyers complained of the inability to order one with many of the highly desirable street options, particularly PASM. The Cayman S Black Edition gets the 330 BHP engine found in the R but without all of the other performance focus. Read More
On November 17th - 2010, Porsche CEO Matthias Mueller unveiled the 2012 Cayman R to an excited audience at the Los Angeles International Auto Show. Porsche pretty much threw the kitchen sink at this one, applying all they know and have available without actually redesigning the car. Every performance option on the list, and then some that weren't on the list have found their way into the Cayman R. A weight savings of 121 lbs. (55 kg) was achieved and it transformed the Cayman. We are going out on a limb here, but we think the Cayman R may be one of the best Porsche cars ever made. Read More
In late 2008, Porsche introduced the limited edition Cayman S Sport. The Sport was a Cayman S packaged with many sport options to create an edgy/sporty Cayman S. Beyond sport options, the Cayman S Sport received new DME software maps created to work with the Porsche Sport Exhaust and a unique Twin Chamber Dual Output Tailpipe that supply the Cayman S Sport with 303 horsepower at 6,250 RPM, making it the first Cayman to break the 300 horsepower ceiling. Read More
In the middle of 2008, Porsche introduced the limited edition Cayman Design Edition 1. The Design Edition 1, also know as the DE1, was a Cayman S packaged with many exclusive cosmetic options intended to commemorate the 35th anniversary of Porsche Design. This car was clearly designed for the Porsche enthusiasts who wanted to own a very special Cayman. Buyers of the DE1 received a special briefcase that contained some pretty cool Porsche Design merchandise, including a Design Edition Chronograph Wrist Watch, Sun Glasses, Ballpoint Pen, Pocket Knife, Key Chain and the key to the DE1.

Essentially a liaison Boxster version situated between the 718 Boxster GTS and the hardcore 718 Spyder, the Porsche 718 Boxster GTS 4.0 offers a mix between the comfort and features found on the regular GTS and a detuned version of the engine found in the Spyder. Alongside its hardtop Cayman sibling, it is also one of the last production sports cars with a large displacement engine that doesn't feature turbocharging or supercharging. It produces 395 bhp @ 7800 rpm and 310 ft lbs @ 5000 rpm and can hit zero to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds (only 0.1 seconds slower than the Spyder). Read More
The mid-engine roadster is powered by the 2.7 liter flat-six engine with 265 hp. Its color concept remains consistent with the soft top and supplemental safety bar which are both finished in black. The wind deflector reduces undesirable turbulence when the soft top is down. 20-inch Carrera Classic wheels and the Bi-Xenon™ headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) set distinctive highlights, while standard two-zone air conditioning and heated seats provide a higher level of comfort for both driver and passenger. The Porsche Communication Management system is included as standard. Read More
On 5 November 2009, Porsche officially announced the Boxster Spyder, which was the lightest Porsche on the market at the time, weighing 1,275 kg , 80 kg lighter than a Boxster S. This was achieved through the elimination of the conventional soft top's operating mechanism, the radio/PCM unit, door handles, air conditioning, storage compartments, cup holders and large LED light modules on the front fascia, although some of these could be re-added to the car in the form of options. Weight saving was also gained using aluminum doors, an aluminum rear deck and the lightest 19-inch wheels. Read More
The 2008 facelift of the Boxster S is powered by a new direct-injection 3.4-liter Boxer engine which develops more power than the earlier variant. The styling got a bit updated with some redesigned headlight casings, taillights, and bumpers, while the interior got new infotainment and more material/color combinations. There's a revised 6-speed manual as well as a new 7-speed PDK gearbox. Performance improves, with power now at 310 hp, rocketing the 987.2 Boxster S from 0 - 60 mph in just 5.2 seconds and to a top speed of 170 mph. Read More
Porsche gave us something special in 2008, the Limited Edition Boxster and Boxster S. Pricing started at $59,900 for the Boxster S version. The Limited Edition’s bright orange paint was previously featured on the race-ready Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The Limited Edition is equipped with a sport exhaust system, and safety bars (also painted orange). The SportDesign package is also included. Read More
In 2008, the second generation of the Boxster received new technologies and more power. It reached almost the same power as the former Boxster S, from the first generation. The 2.9-liter unit replaced the older 2.7-liter engine and offered 10 hp more than the older engine. It was paired as standard to a 6-speed manual, and a 7-speed PDK (Porsche dual-clutch) automatic was available as an option. The outside gets some welcome design tweaks also, while on the inside we get some updates and more technology options. Read More

The Boxster S' engine was upgraded from 3.2-litre to 3.4-litre, resulting in a power increase of 11 kW (15 hp) more (220 kW (295 hp) the same as the Cayman S).

Read More
The Boxster S was revised along with its Boxster version in 2003. From the outside, the 2002 Boxster S featured an apron with three air-intakes, one more than the non-S version. The 3.2-liter unit was installed in the Boxster since 2000, but after the facelift it was improved by 10 hp, reaching 258 hp. It was paired as standard with a 6-speed manual, or a 5-speed Tiptronic (automatic) as an option. As expected, the manual version was quicker and faster. Read More
The first generation Boxster got a facelift and refresh for the 2003 model year. The 2003 Boxster came on the market with new engines and new options. It also had a new face, but not that different than the first generation. The result was more horsepower, the 2.7 liter now good for 225 bhp @ 6300 rpm and 192 ft lbs @ 4750 rpm. Power was up by 8 horsepower over the prior year model, while torque was unchanged. From the outside, the 2002 Boxster featured an apron with two air-intakes on the sides. Read More
The 718 Porsche Cayman GT4 is everything you could possibly want in a sports car. The sublime combination of a legendary chassis and naturally aspirated 6-cylinder Porsche engine is accentuated by the emphasis that less is more when done right - and nobody does this better than Porsche’s GT division. No one will make the argument that these are objectively inexpensive cars, but for those in the market for an introductory dose of supercar sensory-overload, the GT4 checks all the boxes, and then some. Need a track car and daily driver in one package? Then the 718 Cayman GT4 may be the car for you. An absolute blast. Read More
Similar to the 911 T, the 718 Cayman T is not the fastest, most luxurious or even the cheapest of all the 718 variants. However, the car is a unique combination of features and nuances that add up to more than the sum of its parts. The T-wins are the perfect car for somebody who knows exactly what they want, and wants nothing more than that - the purist’s car. The Cayman T is equipped with the base-model 718’s mid-mounted 2.0L flat-four turbocharged engine, which produces 296 bhp @ 6500 rpm and 280 ft lbs of torque. The Sport Chrono package is included as standard. Read More
The Porsche Taycan Turbo S is pumping out 750hp and 774lb-ft tq from 93 kwH battery and 2 electric motors. The Turbo S is clocked at a super-fast 2.6 seconds for the 0-60 mph. The performance is mind-bogglingly quick and it is utterly relentless at any speed. But most impressive is just how the Taycan Turbo S drives through the bends, how it feels when moving going quickly. It feels like a Porsche. On the inside, it is modern, luxurious and feels like the future. We love everything about the Taycan Turbo S except the price. It ain't cheap. Read More
The 2022 GTS get the same engine that powered last year's Turbo model, a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V-6 rated for 434 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque, which amount to increases of 59 horses and 22 lb-ft over the previous GTS. All Macans also come standard with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and all-wheel drive, which combine to push the GTS into the "genuinely fun" category of athleticism and should help it mimic the Turbo's 3.5-second sprint to 60 mph. Read More
Porsche introduced yet another facelift for the Macan lineup for the 2022 model year. The range got more power under the hood, a refreshed design, and an improved interior. The base turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder now makes 261 horsepower. It is a newly developed, turbocharged four-cylinder engine that helps hustle the base Macan from 0 - 60 mph in just 6.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 144 mph. The redesign on the outside gives the base 2022 Macan a tighter look. Read More
