  • Porsche 911 Carrera PDK (2008) review

    Price:  £63,070

    13 June 2008 by Chris Chilton

    Same-again styling hides some great technical innovations on the facelifted, second-generation 997, Porsche 911. With a new range of direct-injection petrol engines and clever seven-speed dual-clutch...

  • Porsche Boxster RS 60 Spyder (2008) review

    Price:  £45,400

    27 March 2008 by Ben Barry

    Should Porsche dabble with special editions that raid its historical back catalogue? We've just driven the new Porsche Boxster RS 60 Spyder - the car that takes its name from the Porsche Type 718 RS...

  • Porsche Cayenne GTS (2007) review

    Price:  £54,000

    12 November 2007 by Steve Bennett

    Cayenne GTS? What’s that then? It’s a more sports-biased version of Porsche’s SUV supercar that seems to wind up just about everyone with an opinion, yet sells jolly nicely. Porsche also justifies the...

  • 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 Cayenne 3.6 V6 (2007) review

    Price:  £37,100

    27 January 2007 by Tim Pollard

    New Porsche Cayenne: the lowdown Love it or loathe it, the Cayenne has done wonders for Porsche's profitability. Purists can argue all day long that it diluted the brand DNA with all those common VW...

  • 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...

  • Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2006) review

    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...

  • Porsche 911 Turbo (2006) review

    Price:  £99,920

    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...

  • Porsche Cayman (2006) review

    Price:  £36,220

    31 July 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Good grief, it's a slightly slower Porsche! What are they thinking? Not everyone can afford the £43,930 for the Cayman S. So here's a Cayman minus the ‘S’ bit and minus a handy £7710. There are...

    28 July 2006 by Georg Kacher

    Here come the high-performance 911's Oh yes. Two years into the life of 997 generation, the Turbo and GT3 are bearing down on us. The Turbo - 480bhp, four-wheel drive, £98k - is on sale now. The GT3 -...

  • Porsche Cayman S (2006) review

    Price:  £44,250

    24 July 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Ahh, the Porsche Boxster coupe. Yes, it's been a long time coming but I think Porsche would rather you didn't mention the B word if you don't mind - just in case people start questioning why the...

  • Porsche Cayenne Turbo S (2006) review

    Price:  £81,565

    24 July 2006 by Georg Kacher

    The Porsche Cayenne Turbo, doyen of the noveau riche and Premiership footballers. What's new about this? This is no 'ordinary' Cayenne Turbo, not that there's much ordinary about a 444bhp SUV that...
