New spy footage captures the Macan EV doing cold-weather testing, accompanied by two Cayenne pilot cars. 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.

2022 Porsche Taycan GTS

The 2022 Porsche Taycan GTS proves that being in the middle is not always a bad thing

Although Porsche’s most definitive model is the 911, these days it’s the Taycan that often steals the show. Porsche’s first, modern-day EV gave the Tesla Model S a worthy competitor from an established brand and now, the Porsche Taycan is blessed by the GTS moniker. How does it stack up to the rest of the lineup and does GTS still stand for the sweet spot in Porsche’s lineup?

2022 Porsche Macan S

This mid-level performance crossover is the perfect blend of performance and luxury

The Macan S sits in the sweet spot of the Macan range. The updated 2.9-liter twin-turbo engine blends with Porsche’s handling wizardry to bring performance and handling so close to that of the Porsche 911 that you won’t believe it.

The Porsche 696 Beutler is a Swiss-Built Porsche Everyone Forgot About

The Porsche 696 Beutler is a Swiss-Built Porsche Everyone Forgot About

The Volkswagen-Porsche 696 Beutler is Switzerland’s idea of a rear-engine Porsche from the 1950s

Throughout Porsche’s history, the 911 will remain its most definitive model. However, Porsche had other great cars and some of them, for one reason or another, remained in obscurity. This is exactly the case with the 1957 Porsche 696 Beutler, which wasn’t even built in Germany, in the first place. This is what we know about it.

Now, it is focusing its attention on the new generation 911 Targa and has transformed it into the car that it should have been from the start.

2021 Porsche Taycan by Techart

Techart is cooking something special for the Taycan

Techart has been around since 1987 and quickly established itself as one of the go-to Porsche tuners. They had a particularly glamorous record between 2005 and 2012, giving us multiple visually-enhanced Porsche models, almost every year, throughout that period. Although their last project involved a mildly altered 991-generation 911, they came back full-force for this one. The new Taycan features many new elements, courtesy of the German tuner, and although it’s not over-the-top like something you’d expect from Mansory, it still is a significant upgrade over the already aggressive-looking super EV.

2020 Porsche Cayenne Nebulus by BLACK BOX-RICHTER

All hands on deck for this scintillating program for the German SUV

With the arrival of super SUVs like the Lamborghini Urus, Bentley Bentayga, and Rolls-Royce Cullinan, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo now faces stiff competition from all corners of the market. The high-powered German SUV still commands plenty of respect and attention, but in those moments when it meets any of these new upstarts, a little aftermarket help wouldn’t be so bad to have. This program, in particular, offers a glimpse of what a Porsche Cayenne Turbo could end up as if enough aftermarket support goes into it. Mind you, this isn’t a one-tuner job; this is the work of several outfits, all coming together to build what could very well be one of the most impressive Cayenne Turbos on the market. There’s a heavy price to pay for this kind of work, but rest assured, German tuner HGP Turbo, Austrian vinyl wrap maker Black Box-Richter, clothing brand Nebulus, and designer Hajo Lemke of EightElevan Design developed a monster program for the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

2021 marks the introduction of a revamped version of the Porsche Panamera. The improvements span across the entirety of trim levels, from the base six-cylinder version, through the GTS, all the way to the Turbo and Hybrid versions of the sports saloon. The GTS package has always been the perfect balancing point between performance and comfort, for all Porsche models. This is especially true for the Panamera, as the main purpose of a sports saloon is to balance these two aspects, in particular. The 2021 Panamera GTS does this balancing act and more.

2021 Porsche Panamera Turbo S

Porsche’s uber-sedan gets a mid-career nip and tuck

2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT

A hybrid with more than 800 horsepower?

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT is an upcoming version of the Cayenne Coupe, a sleek SUV that Porsche originally introduced for the 2020 model year. Spotted testing in the wild with a different exhaust layout, the 2021 Cayenne Turbo GT is rumored to become the company’s range-topping model. It could also be a hybrid that generates more oomph than the already impressive Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid model. The fact that it was also spotted at the Nurburgring in the past suggests it will be more dynamic than any other Cayenne on the market. The equivalent of the 911 GT3 for SUVs if you will. The name is not yet official, but it could be called the Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT5, a badge that Porsche trademarked back in 2015.

Update 4/28/2020: The Porsche Cayenne Coupe GT Was spotted testing one again, this time with what we believe to be sport exhaust. Check out the latest pictures in our special “Spy Shots” section below.

2021 Porsche Macan GTS

The seat center inserts Center console armrests Door trim panels

You can also opt for the GTS interior package that includes leather and accent stitching in Carmine Red or Chalk. The multifunction sport steering wheel can also be had here, and it’s actually exclusive for the Macan GTS, if you can believe that.

The big news here is the 2.9-liter V-6 under the hood. It delivers a cool 375 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque – that accounts for an extra 15 ponies over the previous model. It’s also enough for a 4.7-second sprint to 60 mph and a top speed of 162 mph. Adaptive air suspension is also available and, with it, the suspension will be lowered by 0.39 inches (10 mm.)

2020 Porsche Taycan

2020 Porsche Taycan

The Mission E concept goes into production as Porsche’s answer to the Tesla Model S

The Porsche Taycan is an all-electric sports sedan based on the Mission E concept. It’s also Porsche’s first-ever production electric car, designed to go against the Tesla Model S. Previewed by the Mission E concept, the Taycan sports design features borrowed from the show car, but also includes styling features seen on the Panamera sedan and 911 sports car. Powered by a couple of electric motors, the Taycan generates in excess of 700 horsepower in its range-topping version.

While considered laughable just a decade or two ago, the idea of a high-performance electric vehicle is now widely accepted in even the most traditional of speed circles. Porsche took full advantage of this and designed a sleeker Panamera that’s notably more powerful and quicker. Granted, it’s not as spectacular as the Mission E concept, but it’s definitely an exotic appearance even when compared to full-fledged sports cars. However, does it have what it takes to compete with the Tesla Model S? Let’s find out in the detailed review below.

Updated 10/14/2019: Porsche added a new member to its Taycan lineup. The new Taycan 4S has been announced in two different battery configurations. Check the Drivetrain section for more details.

2020 Porsche Panamera 10 Years Edition

2020 Porsche Panamera 10 Years Edition

The Panamera is a decade old, and here’s to more decades under its belt

Ten years ago, Porsche launched a model that was derided far and wide for running counter to the German automaker’s spirit and ethos. Like the Cayenne SUV, the Porsche Panamera upset a lot of people, not the least of which were the so-called purists who scoffed at the idea of Porsche broadening its appeal beyond its two-door, mid-engined sports cars. The Cayenne was a big enough departure from tradition on its own and the Panamera was looked at with the same level of disdain. It’s funny how things have turned out, right? Today, the Porsche Panamera is one of the most popular models Porsche has in its lineup, lasting long enough to earn a special edition model that’s dedicated solely on its 10th anniversary. This, folks, is the Porsche Panamera 10 Year Edition, and, if for nothing else, it’s a symbol of validation for Porsche to show to those who scoffed at the idea of a luxury four-door sedan wearing a Porsche badge. The Porsche Panamera 10 Year Edition hits the market in the first quarter of 2010 at a starting price of $104,650.
