Turbo Lover

The Porsche 911 Carrera gets a new, turbocharged heart for its 991.2 generation. We give it a proper test on the island of Tenerife.

A Brash Upstart Challenges The 911's Performance Primacy

The Cayman GT4 is an astounding thing full of choice 911 performance bits, ready to fulfill drivers' fantasies as the ultimate evolution of its platform.

The Ultimate Non-Turbo 911 Comes At A Premium

This 500-horsepower 911 brings downforce, rear-steering, exotic materials, and miraculously grippy tires into one extreme package.

More Mature, Less Special?

The 2016 Porsche Boxster Spyder looks awesome on paper, and it's pretty great to drive. But does it recapture the magic that made the last one so special? We head to Italy to find out.

A Magnificent, 4.0-Liter Ode To Porsche's Icon

It's easy to fall in love with the Porsche 911 reimagined by Singer Vehicle Design. We test the company's latest recreation with the 4.0-liter flat-six engine.

More Than Just A Sporty SUV

The Porsche Cayenne S gets a new 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 for 2015. We take one out for a spin in California to see if it's still as engaging as the old V8 model.

Two Less Cylinders, No Less Fun

Porsche brought the Panamera in for its garage makeover and drove it out looking almost exactly the same. Turns out it was one of those fancy German refreshes where everything happens in places you can't immediately see.

More Power, More Efficiency

Porsche's plug-in hybrid gets every adjective we expect of a successor from Stuttgart: more complex, more efficient, more powerful, and faster. We put the 2015 Panamera S E-Hybrid through its paces in Southern California.

Driving The Very First Fruit Of A Revitalized Motorsports Legend

There is only one Porsche 911 GT3 Cup ANDIAL Edition on the planet, and its owner is standing patiently in the hot pits at Oklahoma's Hallett Motor Racing Circuit, watching attentively as his prized possession circles the challenging road course at speed.

Effectively Splitting The Middle Ground Between S and GT3

UPDATE: An earlier version of this story referenced the 911's six-speed manual transmission, but of course, Porsche uses a seven-speed manual in this car. The text has been changed to reflect this.

Creamy Complex Powertrain Delivers The E-Assisted Goods

Think of the electric motor in the facelifted 2015 Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid as the cream filling in an Oreo cookie. Under the hood of this plug-in hybrid crossover is a 333-horsepower, supercharged 3.0-liter V6 with a 95-hp synchronous electric motor sandwiched between it and an eight-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission. The clutched powertrain allows pure combustion, pure electric or a combination of both to drive all four wheels through Porsche's permanent all-wheel-drive system.

Turbo V6 Makes Best-Selling Porsche More Potent Than Ever

Oh, Porsche.

Stuttgart's Entry-Level Crossover Is Everything But

I'd be willing to bet that 99 percent of all Porsche Macan owners will never take their vehicle on a track or see any more off-roading than a dirt path to a summer cottage, yet I maintain that there is no better venue to explore the absolute outer limits of the automaker's newest small family transport than on a racing circuit and an off-road course. It's testing at each extreme of the vehicle's operating envelope, with both challenges requiring very different capabilities. With that in mind, an

Not Cheap, But Worth Every Penny

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.

A Mid-Engine Master Of Driving Dynamics

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.

Feeling That 1960s Vibe All Over Again

I've watched the electro-hydraulic roof panel open and close about 73 times in the past hour, but its fascinatingly complicated operation still has me mesmerized. I've concluded that only a German automaker – Porsche, to be more specific – would go through the trouble of engineering a roof system that essentially lifts the entire greenhouse off a vehicle, rearranges its components like a sliding-tile puzzle, and then reassembles all of them seamlessly (sans roof panel) to accurately

A Class Of One

I knew it was a softball question, but I asked it anyway. It's pretty standard for automakers to offer up some examples of competitors when they invite the media to drive a new vehicle for the first time. If not stated outright, it's just as standard for some journalist to query about the competitive set as soon as the Q&A begins. I knew full well that Porsche believes it has a valuable new niche to itself with the 2015 Macan (and especially with the Macan Turbo), but I wanted to hear the an
