    Price:  £74,720

    01 August 2008 by Adam Towler

    Amongst the seemingly endless combination of body shapes and technology that is the new 911 range, we've just driven an entry-level Carrera 4 soft-top to see if Porsche’s four-wheel drive system,...

    13 June 2008 by Chris Chilton

  • Porsche 911 GT2 (2008) review

    Price:  £131,070

    28 September 2007 by Georg Kacher

    Another yawnworthy 911? Or a yee-hah one? Definitely the latter. 911 Turbo not hard enough? Then how about removing the four-wheel drive, sir? Want to smash the magical 200mph barrier? Soak in the...

  • Porsche 911 C2S (2007) Powerkit review

    Price:  £76,991

    20 September 2007 by Chris Chilton

    So you're saying this is a cut-price GT3? Not exactly, but there is an element of truth to that. The Powerkit is a genuine factory-fitted Porsche tuning package offered only on the Carrera S that...

  • Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet (2007) review

    Price:  £106,180

    20 June 2007 by Phil McNamara

    So the Turbo Coupe gets the predictable cabrio chop then… Spot on. And at £106,180, this turbocharged, open-top, tech-fest is the flagship of today’s range. The only 911 topping £100k comes with a...

  • Porsche 911 GT3 UK (2006) review

    Price:  £80,660

    13 December 2006 by Georg Kacher

    What's the GT3 for, and hasn't it been around for ages? We first drove the car in our dark pre-website days but thought we'd revisit it now that the first few have rolled off the boat onto UK soil. As...

    Price:  £95,640

    18 October 2006 by Chris Chilton

    So Porsche has opened the lairy paint tins again. What’s it all in aid of? It’s time for a new GT3 RS, that’s what. Though you might suspect a marketing hand in here, I’m pleased to say it’s all to do...

  • Porsche 911 Targa 4S (2006) review

    Price:  £78,420

    21 September 2006 by Chris Chilton

    A 911 Targa? It’s just a Carrera with a super-size sunroof isn’t it? Pretty much. But it’s been a staple of the 911 range since the first appeared in the mid sixties. Back then it was a solution to...

    02 August 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Another Porsche 911 variant? Yup, they've been coming thick and fast, but none faster than this - the eagerly anticipated, four-wheel drive Turbo version. It's the most advanced, refined and rapid 911...
