The 2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo Coupe is mechanically the same as the Cayenne Turbo SUV with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 developing 541 horsepower and 567 lb-ft of torque, an eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive. But the similarity ends there because the Coupe has smoother lines than the squared-back SUV.
Porsche has developed the perfect track car that can also perform well as a daily driver with the new 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet. What makes it even better is that you can drop the top whenever skies are clear and sunny. Even better, you can enjoy the exquisite fit and finish the 911 Turbo S offers its owners.
The final Porsche 911 of the 991-model generation was sold at auction by RM Sotheby’s for $500,000, and Porsche matched that amount to bring the total to $1M for the United Way’s Worldwide Coronavirus Fund. The car is a 911 Speedster, only one of 1948 made in the seventh generation of the revered 911.v
Porsche 911 owners have always known their cars were fast and fun, but Porsche has managed to make the 2021 911 Turbo S even faster and definitely more fun. The faster can be attributed in part to the revamped 3.7-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine developing 640 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. This is 60 horses and 37 lb-ft above the previous model. Porsche has published a 0-60 time of 2.6 seconds, but they can be a bit conservative so you might be able to shave off a little bit from their time.
Electric car aficionados may only be interested in the statistic that the 2020 Porsche Taycan beat the Tesla Model S P100D in Ludicrous mode in the quarter-mile. That’s impressive but it doesn’t mean a lot when you and your passengers are stuck in traffic with nobody moving. That’s when your thoughts will turn inward so it’s time to look at the Taycan’s interior and how it will treat your passengers.
The Porsche Panamera GTS might be described as a sport “limousine” which might seem contradictory, but combine a large vehicle with Porsche’s ability to offer power and nimble handling and the contradiction quickly fades away. With four-door access to a luxury interior, your passengers will definitely enjoy riding in your limo.
The newest member of the Porsche family is the Macan GTS or Gran Tourismo Sport. With its 375 horsepower, twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6 engine offering 20 more horses than its predecessor, the GTS can accomplish 0-62 mph in 4.7 seconds and offers a top speed of 162 mph when outfitted with the newly updated PDK dual-clutch transmission and available Sport Chrono package. It also offers 383 lb-ft of torque, also an increase from the previous Macan.
Prospective buyers of a 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera may be torn between buying the 4 or 4S model. The cars are virtually identical this year, so is the price difference worth it? Oh yeah, it’s worth it!
Porsche lovers may be conflicted at times when trying to choose between a manual or PDK automatic transmission for the 911, Macan, Panamera, 718 Boxster, or the 718 Cayman. This could partly be due to some misunderstanding about how the PDK transmission works. So here’s a summary of its operation to help clarify it.
