2023 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT

PHOENIX — With no less than 14 model variants of the Porsche Cayenne SUV there’s a new range-topping Turbo GT that’s the most ultimate Porsche Cayenne ever and is the closest to a Cayenne GT3 as Porsche has ever built. It’s the fastest, most powerful, and with a starting price of over $190,000 the most expensive sport utility vehicle ever by the German sports car maker. 

2022 Porsche 911 GTS

PHOENIX — It’s early morning and I’m on the Apache Trail, a two-lane blacktop highway in central Arizona. The Trail opens up with a rare straightaway for the passing zone. Just ahead of me, a wide, smooth hairpin curve comes into view as I negotiate one of the countless hills and dips that open into a seemingly endless serving of S curves carved into the side of cactus-forested mountains and chiseled desert canyons.

2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo

PHOENIX — Porsche’s first all-electric car, the 2020 Taycan (pronounced Tie-kahn meaning “lively young horse”) is a profoundly impressive sports sedan. It delivers every bit of refinement, driving engagement with the recognized high-performance sports car experience of other Porsche models that affluent driving enthusiasts have come to expect.

Porsche Cayman S — Sports car perfection

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Porsche may have upstaged its iconic 911 with its second-generation Cayman. We discovered the 2014 Cayman, which falls under the flagship 911 in the German's sports car hierarchy, to be a wonderful companion in any situation whether cruising the Interstate from point A to point B or tackling a serious stretch of winding rural-road blacktop.

2014 Porsche Boxster S

GREENVILLE, S.C. — At $50,400, you can hardly tout the Boxster as an every-man's Porsche, but it's about as close as you are going to come. Porsche took advantage of Boxster's total makeover last year to not only tweak the performance elements, but to sharpen the styling and upgrade the cabin. In other words, Boxster is still the entry-level Porsche; but you will be hard pressed to find anyone, who has driven the new Boxster, call it that.

Porsche 911 Carrera S — The ultimate sports car

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

There is nothing in the automotive universe quite like a Porsche 911. The legend of the iconic Porsche since its debut in 1963 continues to grow with the newest iteration, which is four inches longer, has a two-inch wider front track and is 56 pounds lighter than the previous version without losing any of its classic proportions. Its styling continuity over the span of 50 years is amazing. The timeless design of Ferdinand (Ferry) Porsche lives on in grand fashion.

Porsche Panamera — The all sports car, frugal luxury sedan

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

A decade ago the thought of Porsche building a four-door sedan was, well, just crazy. The mention of such a move was sacrilege.

It was about that time that the Porsche sport utility vehicle — which too was much maligned, but  has proven a giant success for the German sports car builder — hit the market. The popularity of the Cayenne SUV paved the way for the Panamera sedan, which arrived in 2009 as a 2010 model and has given Porsche another shot in its sales arm.

Porsche Boxster Spyder — Fast for those who can

 By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Under the enthusiast’s heading of “Porsche can do no wrong” find the sub head – “challenges.” The crux of the matter — the 2011 Porsche Boxster Spyder is a challenge simply because this car is strictly for serious driving enthusiasts, for the people who spend considerable weekend time at the race track.

If you don’t fall into that category, ask about the Porsche Boxster S when visiting your favorite Porsche dealership and leave the new Spyder in the showroom.

Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet — Money can buy happiness

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

In the human experience there’s nothing quite like the first time, for anything. And so it is with launching for the first time the 500-horsepower 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo outfitted with the lightning-fast dual-clutch seven-speed automatic transmission. It’s an experience that it is not soon forgotten. Call it g-force giddiness, akin to hitting the first big drop on a roller coaster.

Porsche Cayenne S goes anywhere with gusto

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

He scratched his head in an “I don¹t believe it” posture as he walked around the Porsche Cayenne S in the parking lot of our townhome community. Our maintenance guy knows that Porsche has built sports cars for many years. And he knows that Chevrolet and Ford build trucks. He drives a pickup every day. And he probably knows that most automakers build some sort of SUV these days.
