Porsche

Porsche is known as the purveyor of rear-engined sports cars and GTs but, in the past two decades, it has greatly extended its business and, now, the backbone of Weissach’s lineup is made up of SUVs like the Macan and the Cayenne and the ultra-luxurious sedan that is the Panamera. Of course, there will always be more fans of the mythical 911 that’s been in production since the mid-’60s but two-door cars are hardly the bread and the butter of the company nowadays, although they will always remain the stars as Porsche’s motorsports-bred DNA is embedded in each and every model that leaves Stuttgart.

2022 Porsche 911 Safari

2022 Porsche 911 Safari

It seems Porsche is finally building the off-road 911 you’ve been asking for all these years

The 2022 Porsche 911 Safari is a rumored, upcoming variant of the company’s iconic sports car. Far from confirmed for production, the 911 Safari has been spotted testing on public roads a few times since late 2020, a sign that Porsche is considering some sort of 911 with a raised suspension. The Safari name isn’t official either, it’s just based on a nickname given to a handful of rally-spec cars that Porsche built in the past. The German company also created a 911 Vision Safari concept in 2012, but it kept it hidden from us until November 2020, when it unveiled numerous never-before-seen show cars and designs. Is Porsche actually working on a production 911 Safari. If so, what will it bring to the table? Let’s try and answer these questions in the speculative review below.

Updated 01/25/2022: The future Porsche 911 Safari was caught testing once again, this time in its production shape. You can spot the different front bumper, new air intakes in the engine hood and wider side sills. The rear also gets a new bumper and new exhaust pipes.

The upcoming Porsche Macan EV was ambushed by the paparazzi while charging its batteries

It also seems like the test prototype is experiencing difficulties in the cold, snowy climate – something Porsche is currently addressing as the vehicle nears production.

Porsche Panamera Prototype Reveals an Interesting Design Evolution

Porsche Panamera Prototype Reveals an Interesting Design Evolution

One more facelift to keep the Panamera fresh for the next couple of years

The current-gen Porsche Panamera has been on the market since 2017. It’s already been facelifted once, but Porsche is interested in revitalizing the old model just one more time before the next-gen model launches in 2025. The model you see here will only be on the market for a few years, launching for 2023 but from what we can tell it’s going to bring some interesting change. This prototype reveals a new front fascia with an additional air intake and a revised light layout. The rear end was completely covered, but a revised taillight matrix isn’t exactly out of the question. Expect the interior to remain largely the same, though, as Porsche will save its best goodies for the third-gen model in 2025. Check out the full gallery below to see the prototype for yourself!

What is the Cheapest Porsche?

The cheapest Porsche currently for sale in the United States is the Macan, a luxury compact crossover SUV that starts from just $49,900 before you add all the extra taxes and charges and any dealer premium. The entry-level Macan is fitted with a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, enough for a 0-60 mph time of 6.3 seconds without the Sport Chrono package and a top speed 141 mph. The Macan arguably bests all of its rivals in terms of the driving experience but it’s also more expensive than its peer with a Range Rover starting at just $42,650 and an AWD X2 setting you back some $38,400.

The cheapest sports car that Porsche currently makes is the 718 Cayman with a base MSRP of $56,900. With 300 ponies at its disposal from the turbocharged 2.0-liter flat-four engine, the 718 Cayman needs under five seconds to reach 60 mph from a standstill with the manual transmission while the top speed is 170 mph. While cars like the Toyota Supra cost under $50,000, the 718 Cayman isn’t the most expensive car in its segment and it counters with great performance, great feeling behind the wheel, and a well-sorted cabin.

What is the Sportiest Porsche?

The sportiest Porsche out there is the model that spearheads the 911 lineup, the mighty GT2 RS - a track-oriented beast that’s somehow allowed to be driven on the road too. The 991-generation GT2 RS is motivated by a 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged boxer six-pot that develops 690 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 553 pound-feet of torque at 7,200 rpm. It goes from naught to 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds en route to a top speed of 211 mph but still pulls 21 mpg on the highway!

The GT2 RS is monstrous even compared to other ultra-fast Porsches such as the last 991-based GT3 RS with its 4.0-liter boxer capable of 520 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of twist. The GT3 RS will be left in a speck of dust by the GT2 RS on an unrestricted bit of the Autobahn as the GT3 RS doesn’t surpass 193 mph but it’s also significantly cheaper with a 2018 MSRP of $187,500 compared to the $293,200 price tag of the GT2 RS. It’s hard to make the case for spending over $100,000 more on the GT2 RS but Porsche still sells its Nurburgring-devouring car quite well Stateside.

What is the Most Popular Porsche?

Porsche sold a total of 57,202 vehicles in the US alone, a far cry from the early days when craftsmen in Gmund, Austria, were barely able to finish a few dozen cars a month. Porsche thus ended 2018 as its ninth year of continuous growth and the best-selling model in its lineup is, coincidentally, the cheapest. No less than 23,500 Macans were delivered in 2018, more than double the total amount of Cayennes sold last year (10,733, down by some 2,000 units compared to 2017).

What may surprise you is that the third best-selling Porsche is not the Panamera, but the legendary 911 of which 9,647 units were sold over the 12 months of 2018, over 1,000 more than Panamera. This solidifies the 911’s status as a favorite among Porschephiles. The 911 is also, undoubtedly, a favorite of many gearheads as one of the best drivers’ cars money can buy and the company’s symbol.

What is the Most Expensive Porsche?

The most expensive model is the 911 GT2 RS that starts at $293,200. As far as base models go, the most expensive Porsche is the new 992-generation Porsche 911 that starts at $97,400 (for a 911 Carrera) making it $6,300 more expensive than the outgoing 991.2 911 Carrera that’s still available Stateside.

What is the Fastest Porsche?

The fastest Porsche is also the one that’s the sportiest and the most expensive - the 911 GT2 RS. With its 211 mph top speed, it’s 18 mph faster than the GT3 RS and almost 30 mph faster than the 992-generation 911 Carrera. To put it into context, the 911 GT2 RS is as fast as the 918 Spyder, Porsche’s last mid-engined supercar, and 6 mph faster than the Carrera GT.

Are Porsche Cars Reliable?

In 2015, a survey conducted by British outlet WhatCar? in conjunction with WarrantyDirect found out that Porsches were the second least-reliable luxury cars in the UK, just pipping Bentley in terms of reliability. Having said that, the most recent J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study stated that Porsche is the third most reliable brand, trailing only Lexus and Toyota in the study that looks at the dependability of three-year-old cars. Porsche surpasses in this study luxury segment stalwarts like BMW or Mercedes-Benz.
