The Cheapest Porsche Money Can Buy In 2022
Porsche is a brand revered by auto enthusiasts around the world. Though the Stuttgart-based marque is best known for its 911 range which tends to fetch top dollar, especially the older cars, it makes them inaccessible to the masses. But, Porsche DNA has blessed a lot of other models over the years that you can buy without breaking the bank or selling your kidney. Here are our top Porsche picks for enthusiasts on a budget:
2022 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT - Performance, Price, and Photos
This is the 2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT, the most expensive and track-focused Cayenne ever made (period). The Cayenne of course was responsible for taking the sports SUV formula mainstream nearly two decades ago. Now if you’re not a Porsche fanboy, navigating the Porsche model range can be an incredibly taxing proposition. The Cayenne is no different. Offered in both traditional SUV and Coupe SUV body styles, you have a staggering 13 options to choose from and the Turbo GT (only offered as a Coupe) sits at the very top of that lineup.
The GT moniker is often reserved for some serious Porsches and it is the first time that the folks from Weissach have decided to use it on the Cayenne. So is it worthy of the GT nameplate? Let’s take a closer look at what Porsche has done to distinguish the Cayenne Turbo GT, not just the from rest of the Cayenne range, but also from other super-SUVs within the VW umbrella like the Lamborghini Urus, the Audi RS Q8, and the Bentley Bentayga.
This RWB-Modified 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Has Seen Some Things
One of the finest examples of the 911 has to be the 993 generation Carrera. The 1995 911 was a breakthrough for its handling prowess, increased performance, and styling improvements. It was also the very last generation of 911 to be sold with an air-cooled engine. A modified 1995 911 Carrera by Rauh-Welt Begriff, a Japanese Porsche tuner, is up for grabs, and there’s a few things that are quite interesting about it.
This Porsche 911 RS America May Have Travelled the World More than You
Classic Porsches have always been a hot commodity among car enthusiasts, rarer and high-performance models have seen their prices nearly double, if not more, in recent years. This is partly thanks to Magnus Walker, the Porsche tycoon, and social media extraordinaire with a collection including literalyl dozens of Porsches.
Even without any direct connection to Walker, old Porsches fetch wild sums at auction, and another extremely unique 911 has just popped up for sale on Bring a Trailer, with plenty of money being thrown at it.
Porsche Taycan by Jager - the Embodiment of Weight Loss Through Carbon Fiber
Naturally electric vehicles are heavier than combustion-powered vehicles due to the added weight of the battery. Take the Taycan for example, Porsche’s electric sedan has a weight in the 2,140 - 2,350 kilo (4,717 - 5,081 pounds). If that doesn’t sound like much to you, think that a Ram 1500 pickup truck has a weight of 4,798 pounds! Porsche managed to compensate for the extra weight with more power, but the Taycan is still on the high side of the fat scale.
10 Road-Legal Cars Powered By F1 Engines
The term “race car for the road” has been abused quite thoroughly by marketers wanting to make certain cars more appealing to car enthusiasts. With that said, few things scream “race car for the road” as loud as a Formula One engine, and these 10 cars are motivated by engines based on, or developed for Formula One racing.
2022 Porsche Cayman 718 GT4 RS Performance, Price and Photos
The enthusiast crowd rejoiced when Porsche finally took the wraps off of its highly anticipated Cayman 718 GT4 RS in November last year. This was a car that Porsche fans had been lusting after for years - a Cayman with a 911 engine. Now, within the Porsche universe, the Cayman has always sat in the shadow of the 911, but the folks over at Weissach have finally given the 718 the performance and chassis upgrades that it has always deserved. The biggest upgrade, by far, has to be the mid-mounted flat-six engine from the 911 GT3 that revs to a colossal 9000 rpm. Now, this might sound like a cliché, but the Cayman GT4 RS is genuinely a track weapon for the road, and you’re about to find out why. Let’s dig in.
Manthey’s Performance Kit Makes the Porsche 911 GT3 one of the Top 10 Fastest Production Cars on the Nürburgring
When Manthey Racing modifies a Porsche car it does it with one purpose in mind: to improve the car’s time around the 13-mile Nürburgring-Nordschleife track. It did it with the Porsche 911 GT2 RS - a car that after the changes broke the record and became the fastest road-legal production car around Nürburgring with a lap time of 6:43:30. Now, the same treatment was applied to the Porsche 911 GT3, and while the sports car broke no record, the changes still considerably improved its lap time.
Watch a BMW M5 CS Fight It Out With the 997 Porsche 911 Turbo S
The folks from Carwow have brought an exciting drag race between two unique cars from different generations. On the left, we have a 10-year old 997.2-gen Porsche 911 Turbo S,. Next to that, a BMW M5 CS is in its current generation for the 2022 model year. They are “bonkers-hardcore-performance-thingy,” as Mat Watson wants to call them. But there are quite some differences between the two, since the M5 CS is a family sedan and the 911 Turbo S is a sports car. Also, on paper, the BMW has all the power to school the Porsche down the quarter-mile, but can the 911 Turbo S from 2012 really keep up? Let’s dive in.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2024 Porsche Macan EV’s Interior
There is no doubt about one thing: the future will be electric! Every automaker out there is focusing all its resources into developing more and more electric cars, and Porsche is no exception. After the Taycan and the announcement that the entire 718 lineup will be electric, the Macan will also be sold as an EV.
The model has been testing for quite some time now, but an official debut won’t happen until later in 2023. Now, however, we’re finally getting a look at the Macan EV’s interior for the very first time.
This Porsche 911-Based 1985 RUF BTR II Cabriolet Could Soar Beyond $500,000 at Auction
The 1985 RUF BTR II Cabriolet needs no introduction, as it was a hell of a sports car with a ton of power and excellent handling behavior. It won the world’s fastest cars contest by clocking 186.2 mph as the top speed in 1984, which was insane. So here we have an example from the 1985 model year, and it is looking for a new home. There’s a good chance that it may go beyond the $500,000 mark before the digital hammer drops, but is it really worth it?
There’s a Little Controversy Amid the Porsche Cayenne’s 20th Birthday
Since 2002, the Cayenne has been one of the most successful and practical Porsches, with enough performance for everyday driveability and some spirited fun too. But surrounding its 20th birthday, there is talk that the Cayenne might be the successor of the 959 - a car originally built for Group B rally.
