a.k.a the quickest way to lose your driving license. by Kenny Yeo
Hankering for a Porsche 911 after reading our review? The bad news is that, with so many models on show, understanding the entire 911 lineup is nigh impossible for mere mortals. The good news, however, is that we have a simple chart to help.
WHAT OTHER CARS DO PORSCHE MAKE?
So, you want a Porsche but don’t want a 911. Well, the good news is that Porsche makes a lot of different cars these days so there’s bound to be something for everybody out there. Just remember to bring the cash.
The 718 Cayman and Boxster
Don’t believe anyone who tells you that the 718 Cayman and 718 Boxster are for people who cannot afford the 911. The Cayman and Boxster are well sorted cars and a real pleasure to drive.
The Panamera is the closest any big 4-door saloon can come to feeling like a sports car. Don’t be fooled by its dimensions, it drives brilliantly and is quick to boot too. The bad boy Panamera Turbo puts out 550hp and can propel to 100km/h under 4 seconds, which is ludicrous for an executive-size saloon.
The Macan is positioned as a compact sports SUV and is the latest addition to the Porsche family. Looks are genuinely deceiving because the Macan goes just as fast and handles just as well as smaller sports cars
When Porsche was in trouble in the early part of the last decade, it was the Cayenne that rescued it. Though it was considered by many to be big and unattractive, it somehow struck a cord with buyers and single-handedly kickstarted the trend of large luxury SUVs.
