    Video: Which is quicker in the standing mile, a Subaru WRX STI or a Porsche Cayman?
    1403827200

    The 2015 Subaru WRX STI and 2014 Porsche Cayman are both saddled with unfair reputations. The STI with its huge wing and gold wheels has the title of the ultimate boy-racer. On the other hand, Porsche brand snobs look down on the base Cayman as just a wannabe 911. In reality, they are both pretty ...

    Video: Porsche 356 Outlaw is the other Continental
    1403740680

    Video: Autocar pits Porsche 911 Turbo S against Formula 4 racer
    1403308860

    There is a long-running argument among performance car fans: power vs. weight.

    It's hard not to love the look of a classic Porsche. Whether it's the upside-down bathtub styling of the 356 or the gradual evolution of the 911, there is a little beauty in all of them.
