Porsche and Pascal Wehrlein nab stellar Formula E results in Mexico, lose out on minor rules infractions

Photo: Porsche Porsche doesn’t do things by half measure. When the company decides it is going to get into racing, that’s because it has decided to win that series, that championship, and that race. It will pull out all of the stops to make victories happen, no matter what. It may take a few years of development and spending and engagement in a series to find its feet, but it always does. Nowhere is that more true than in Formula E. Porsche joined the series in the 2019/20 season and had middli...

2022 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe: Bigger, Bolder & More Aerodynamic

The 2022 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe is the second-generation model of the German automaker’s 4-Series hatchback. Right off the bat, the resemblance between the all-new 4-Series Gran Coupe and BMW’s all-electric i4 is uncanny. Although the 2022 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe is just half an inch longer than a regular 4-Series Coupe, the new model is significantly bigger, longer, and broader than the first generation. The latest four-door 4-Series is 5.9-inches longer, one-inch wider, and 2.1-inches tall...

After 25 years of the entry-level mid-engine platform, it’s possible Porsche is about to tear up the script and rewrite it completely for the next generation. Heck, it’s possible that Porsche could even be planning an electric version as a send-off for the current 718-generation. According to Ca...

Porsche Commemorates the Mercedes-Benz 500 E’s 30th Anniversary

The brand isn’t a stranger to four-door vehicles because it has a history of collaborating with other automakers building fast sedans, wagons, and hot hatches. The Volvo 850 T5R and Audi RS 2 were just some of the vehicles that Porsche helped develop. One of the most recognizable, however, is the Mercedes-Benz 500 E, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary Its blend of comfort and performance made it ...

They had three high performance electric sedans on hand, so why not compare them to each other in equal conditions? Given that the specifications between Porsche’s Taycan Turbo and Audi’s E-Tron GT RS are pretty similar, and the Tesla Model S Performance is just a bit more powerful than that, the three cars are fairly compa...
