You really don’t need to spend a fortune to get a nice Porsche, but you do need to know what to look for

Porsche is a brand revered by auto-enthusiasts around the world.

But Porsche DNA has blessed a lot of other models over the years, so here are our top Porsche picks for enthusiasts on a budget.

7 Unlikely Cars With Porsche DNA That You Didn’t Know About

Porsche’s financial situation in the 1990s was the reason for some of the most iconic performance cars, as well as some not so iconic ones

The automotive industry is a dynamic one and collaborations between different car manufacturers are not that uncommon. Porsche is a name associated with great craftsmanship, great engineering, and tradition - all traits the 911 encompasses better than any other car. However, Porsche was not always doing well financially and, in the 1990s, they were willing to lend their expertise to other companies. Here are some of the brand’s most known and some less-known joint ventures, some of which may surprise you.

Porsche Taycan vs. Tesla Model S

Porsche Taycan vs. Tesla Model S

Comparing the giants of the high-performance EV market

After years of promises, teasers, and concept cars, Porsche finally unveiled the Taycan. A major turning point in the company’s history, the Taycan is the first Porsche with an all-electric drivetrain. What’s more, the Taycan is an EV of the high performance variety, so it goes against one of the most popular electric vehicles on the market, the Tesla Model S. A strong seller in the United States and a market leader in some European countries, the Model S is tough to beat. The big question is whether the Taycan has what it takes to give the Model S a run for its money and that’s exactly what we will find out in the comparison below.

Nine facts and much more you have to know about the new Porsche Taycan

The problem with small craft beer companies isn’t about the quality of their products or the innovation behind it. It is about the scale. When the demand picks up, they cannot deliver - the quality goes down, and waiting time goes up. That is why not many alcohol drink representatives want to work with small scale craft beer producers. I am telling you this because we have something similar in the car world as well. When the demand picked up for the Tesla-produced cars, the company could not meet the expectations. No matter what it did. So, when a car like the Porsche Taycan comes to the market, it is a whole different story. It has Porsche and the entire Volkswagen Group behind it. These people do meet expectations, and these are all the quirks and features you need to know about the Taycan to believe it.

2020 Mercedes GLS vs 2020 Porsche Cayenne

2020 Mercedes GLS vs 2020 Porsche Cayenne

Merc’s biggest hauler goes toe to toe with the vehicle that rejuvenated the niche of fast SUVs

I picture you glancing over this article and thinking, "How can he compare these two SUVs, they’re not even playing ball in the same field?", and while that is true, it’s not an exercise in futility. Both the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS and the 2020 Porsche Cayenne offer buckets of luxury and are expensive, so it’s worth putting them head to head to see what type of SUV is, ultimately, better.

In this matchup, you’ve got on the one hand the bear-like, full-size GLS SUV or the mid-size, sporty Cayenne SUV. The latter doesn’t offer as much interior room but can get you from A to B quicker. Also, it’s worth comparing these two mean peddlers because comparing the new GLS with the X7 is all too predictable - but we’ll tackle that too, don’t worry!

From the outset, you can probably guess who the winners will be in each category, right? I mean, just look at the GLS: it has a straight roofline and an almost straight back end to round things off. It features a longer wheelbase and up to seven full seats with all the amenities one could ask for. It must be the winner when it comes to the interior category, right? And the Cayenne must be the winner in the drivetrain department due to its higher output engines in the more expensive trim levels and, by and large, it also looks a bit nicer due to its lower stance, right? But things aren’t as simple as they seem from the outside.

2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe With A Lower Roof, Pepito Pattern And Two Spoilers From The Get-Go

The latest addition to Porsche’s great line up is the all-new 2020 Cayenne Coupe. As one of the most financially meaningful contributions to the lineup, the Cayenne Coupe gathered all the best Cayenne abilities and offered them in a sexier, sleeker and, seemingly more sophisticated shape.

While I can tell you right away that the Porsche Cayenne Coupe is a Cayenne with a differently styled roof, it also does hide its true nature with a few essential novelties compared to the wagon-style brother.

In essence, the Porsche Cayenne Coupe sacrificed a lot of the Cayenne utilitarianism for style and design. With money printing machines like the X6, GLE Coupe, and the Q8 on the market, Porsche simply had no choice but to offer a more beautiful Cayenne. And this, while still strangely ostentatious, may well be the best-looking Coupe-SUV on the market. Here are all the important novelties you need to know about it:

Please Buy a Porsche Panamera Rather Than the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe

Please Buy a Porsche Panamera Rather Than the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe

If you want something fast and practical from Stuttgart, there are better options out there

Porsche just unveiled the 2020 Cayenne Coupe, which is a lot like the standard Cayenne, but with a “sportier” roofline. As a fan of fast cars and less of a fan of fast SUVs, I feel as though it’s my duty to encourage anyone considering the Cayenne Coupe as their next vehicle purchase to instead take a gander at the Porsche Panamera lineup, which offers more performance, equal levels of luxury, and nearly equal practicality.
