Is Porsche finally going to build an electric Boxster?

Porsche has been threatening to build an all-electric two-seat sports car for years, building electrified Boxster and Cayman prototypes on 987 and 981 platforms, but never quite making it to production. 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...

Rod Emory is working on a hard core off-road Porsche Macan Baja

Screenshot: @rodemory on Instagram It seems like off-road Porsches are all the rage these days. We’ve seen totally rad Cayennes from E-Motion Engineering, awesome off-roading in Moab, and even Porsche themselves are getting in on the Cayenne craze. And that’s to say nothing of the safari 911 trend that has been blowing up in this community for the last decade. The next logical progression for Porsche fanatics looking to get deep into the dirt is to start fiddling with Macans. The compact crosso...

Updating the Porsche Bible: The new edition of Excellence Was Expected is bigger, better, and more

Karl Ludvigsen is simply in his element when it comes to the history of the Porsche brand. This epic set of tomes is the most complete history of Porsche that has ever been written by anyone, bar none, end of discussion. Since I started here at FlatSixes, I’ve relied on the old 2008 edition of this book to provide historical context and deep dive information. It has been a critical resource and reference material for Porsche fanatics for decades, and has grown larger right along with the compan...

Porsche Is Working On A Sub-Taycan Electric Sedan: Report

Photo credit: Manuel Carrillo / EV Pulse It’s no secret that we’re in love with Porsche’s newest family member, the all-electric Taycan.

A smaller, lighter platform and a lower price tag. According to a recent report from Autocar, that’s exactly what Porsche is currently working on. Based on VAG’s Premium Plat...

Porsche Looks On Track For A Record Sales Year After Impressive Q1

Porsche prides itself on being among the most profitable automobile manufacturers in the world, and that trend continues in the first quarter of 2021. Revenue in Q1 2020 was a bit rough, thanks to dealerships, factories, and logistics shutting down in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Revenue from car sales increased year-over-year from 6 billion euros to 7.7 billion euros, and return on sales improved from 9.5 percent to 16.2 percent. Yeah, that's pretty impressive. “We have started the ye...

An Electric Porsche Macan Is Nearly Here — Packing More Range Than A Taycan

With production rumored to begin next year, Porsche has been on the road to building a new all-electric Macan for a long time by now. This attempt at a world-beating EV crossover is Porsche firing across the bow of the Tesla Model Y and Ford Mustang Mach-E. Jointly developed with Volkswagen, the new Macan will ride on the Premium Platform Electric (PPE), and has the potential to be the best selling Porsche of all time. It's an ambitious project from Porsche as it is said the Macan electric will...

Making Sense of Porsche Brake Colors

Porsche was not the first company to offer disc brakes. That honor goes to the lowly Crosley Hotshot back in 1948! Indeed, Porsche began offering disc brakes in 1962, the same year that Studebaker introduced a Bendix system on the Avanti. Porsche had been using rotors and calipers on racing cars for a few years by the time it introduced them for consumer road cars in 1962. Despite being a bit late to the game, Porsche has always taken disc brake development very seriously. Beginning with the som...

FlatSixes Isn’t Afraid Of Change

Photo credit: Alexander Kirch / Shutterstock.com The Porsche of today would be unrecognizable to the Porsche of the mid-1990s. Back then the company was in dire straits, struggling to sell 10,000 cars annually here in the U.S. market. In 2020, despite a pandemic, Porsche shifted nearly 60,000 new cars and almost 30,000 certified pre-owned models. It did all of this while delivering its first of many electric vehicles, the Taycan sedan, forging new electric motor sport ties in Formula E, and co...

Review: The $84,090 Porsche Macan GTS is the practical combination of a sports car and a luxury SUV

2020 Porsche Macan GTS. Kristen Lee The Macan and Cayenne SUVs were Porsche's best-selling vehicles in 2020, with the Macan winning out. The Macan GTS drives and handles like something much smaller and way more fun. My 2020 loaner model started at $71,300. After options, it came to $84,090. See more stories on Insider's business page. Given the plethora of available compact luxury SUVs these days, you'd almost think the Porsche Macan would vanish into a sea of jelly bean-shaped...

Used Vehicle Prices Up, But Bargains Are Available: Here Is What The Data Says

The average price increase for used cars is 9.5 percent or $2,193 compared to 2019. Convertibles saw the greatest increase of any segment with a 27.2 percent overall jump. Despite the trend of used vehicle prices going up, some have actually decreased in price. You can still score a great deal on a used car, but you’ll likely pay more than you would have a year ago as used vehicle prices are up. As we mentioned in an earlier article, dealers have 25 percent less inventory now due to pandemic...

REVIEW: The $144,000 Taycan 4S is Porsche's first EV that pairs cosmic speed with eerie electric silence

2020 Porsche Taycan 4S. Kristen Lee/Business Insider The Taycan is Porsche's first EV and comes in three trims: the $104,000 4S, $151,000 Turbo, and $185,000 Turbo S. My 4S loaner came to $143,690 after options. On paper, Porsche's iconic gas-powered 911 Turbo S is faster. But in practice, the Taycan 4S feels like it has warp drive.

I drove a $141,000 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, the newest version of the iconic sports car. It was without question the best Porsche I've ever experienced.

I drove a 2020 $140,830 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S — the latest version of the world's greatest sports car, now identified as the 992. My test car had a twin-turbo boxer six engine, making 443 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. It was very, very fast — 0-60 mph in the realm of three seconds (Porsche says 3.2 seconds, to be exact). But the 4S is also a dream to drive hard, thanks to its impeccable all-wheel-drive system.
