Porsche News

Porsche is a brand of high-end luxury and sportscars with headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany. Founded in 1931 by Ferdinand Porsche, the company is best known for the 911 that's been on sale since 1964. It's also credited with designing the original Volkswagen Beetle in the 1930s under contract for the German government. This connection with Volkswagen exists today, as the latter became full owner of Porsche in July 2012.

    Quick Spin: 2015 Porsche Cayman GTS
    Not Cheap, But Worth Every Penny 1401379020

    The Porsche Boxster and Cayman will forever nip at the heels of their big brother, the 911 Carrera, and perpetuating this tradition are the latest GTS variants, which add yet another arrow to the quiver of the plucky mid-engined platform. The GTS' performance enhancements boost horsepower by a mere 15 and shave a tenth from 0 to 60, but Porsche's clever ...

    Spy Shots: Porsche testing new 911 GTS
    1401278520

    Porsche may have one more vehicle in its stable with the GTS moniker, if these spy shots are any indication. They show off the presumed 911 GTS lapping the track – the model meant to slide in under the GT3 to be a bit more driver-friendly but still very fast alternative to a stock Carrera. At first glance, it might look like any other 911, but the ...

    First Drive: 2015 Porsche Boxster GTS [w/video]
    A Mid-Engine Master Of Driving Dynamics 1400774220

    You know the sound: the startling pop-brraaap-pop-pop shotgun fire of unspent flammables coursing through exhaust pipes that usually signals a raw, naughty powerplant beneath the hood. But when you're nestled in the Porsche Boxster GTS' snug seats, it's not a crackling small block V8 or a high-strung Italian flat crank making the devilish racket, but ...

    McLarens may be exclusive, but there are still hundreds – if not thousands – of people out there who can say they own one. Mansour Ojjeh is one of them, but he doesn't just own a McLaren – he owns McLaren. As in, the company that makes the racing and exotic supercars. Or 25 percent of it, anyway. As the head of Techniques d'Avant Garde, ...

    In the 2000s, the musical mashup genre saw a peak of popularity with releases like The Grey Album from Danger Mouse that mixed The Beatles and Jay-Z. UK artist James Pursey from Carwow decided to take the same concept of shoehorning two disparate things together but applied the concept to cars. Your opinion on the results will vary with your sense of ...

    Video: Porsche resurrects V8-powered 911 prototype from the Eighties

    These days, we take it for granted that the Porsche 911 uses a flat-six engine. That's because every version of the iconic rear-engined sports car has had one. Right? Well, for the most part. There was the 912 that joined the original in the late Sixties with a flat-four. And in the mid-Eighties, Porsche toyed around with the idea of a V8-powered ...

    Report: Porsche planning Cayman GT4, 700-hp Turbo S e-Hybrids

    The old wisdom when it came to the Porsche lineup was that the Boxster and Cayman needed to be kept in line so as not to encroach on even the lower end of the 911 range. But with the latest versions of the compact roadster and coupe, that logic has gone out the window. Especially with the introduction of the latest GTS models (pictured above). But that's ...

    The Porsche 928 was perhaps the consummate European GT of its day.
