    Hands-on: Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid first drive

    By 18 December 2013

    We didn't have very long with the Porsche Panamera, but we thought it was worth some hands-on love, because it's a very special car. We've spent time with the diesel previously, and really liked it and the truth is, the Panamera is a bit weird to initially...

    Hands-on: Porsche Panamera Diesel review

    By 6 December 2013

    Is a diesel Porsche a proper Porsche? That’s the big question that hangs in our minds before we jump into the low-set, leather-clad seat of the Panamera Diesel. Especially given that this one’s propelled by an engine you can find under the bonnet...

    Porsche Macan pictures and hands-on

    By 22 November 2013

    This is the latest new Porsche, the Macan. Yes, we know, it’s hard to keep up. The company didn’t make an SUV 10 years ago, but now it’s got a second one under its belt. Little brother Macan joins big brother Cayenne - the theory perhaps being that...

    By 12 September 2013

    The Porsche 918 Spyder, unveiled in production form at the IAA 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, is perhaps the answer to a question no one asked. So, we'll create one for it. Let's pretend you've got the best part of a million quid to spend. On a car. You're...

    Porsche 911 Carrera 4S review

    By 21 August 2013

    With the new 991-generation car, Porsche has created the most usable, spacious - not to mention largest - 911 ever. The Carrera 4S model - recently added to the range and often abbreviated as "C4S" - not only offers the slightly pimped-up aesthetic of...

    Porsche 911 Carrera pictures and hands-on

    By 24 May 2013

    When it comes to two-seater sports car there are few quite as iconic as the Porsche 911. Pegged as the ultimate daily driver sports car, each year Porsche refines things just that little bit more. The result is a car which is now 50 years old, but looks...

    Porsche revealed its new Cayman in Los Angeles yesterday at the 2012 LA Auto Show, and we were in town to get a first glimpse. The sister car of the Boxster unveiled earlier this year in Geneva, the Cayman appears at first glance to be very much a “same...

    Porsche Silverstone Driving Experience pictures and hands-on

    By 27 July 2012

    "Bit of power now, little bit more, no too much!" shouts Ed, just as the Porsche 911 I’m at the wheel of begins to spin round and we pirouette backwards through the water fountains. Belatedly, my mental faculties kick back in, I press the brake and...

    Porsche 911 Carrera (991) 2012 pictures and hands-on

    By 25 May 2012

    The Porsche 911 is a Marmite car. Before reading any of the words we put down on this page, you’re going into this article either believing that the 911 is the best sports car in the world. Or that it’s some stupid, anachronistic development of the...

    Porsche Cayman S review

    By 15 May 2012

    "Would you like to drive a Porsche around the south of France?" is the kind of question which - like, "Would you like either a kick in the crown jewels, or this gold ingot?"  - doesn’t require a lot of thinking about. "Yes," we replied, and a couple...

    Porsche 997 Carrera S cabrio review

    By 28 October 2006

    Remember the old car sticker, usually stuck in the rear window of a banged up old Rover that read: "My other car’s a Porsche"? That was back in the day when the Porsche badge meant rich, ostentatious and exclusive. These days, Porsche means something...
