Facelifted Boxster ready to move up food chain

// Posted in Porsche

Above you see a pretty good shot of the 981.2 Porsche Boxster. When it goes on sale in Australia mid-2016 it will move up the family food chain, demoting the hardtop Cayman to entry-level status. Currently priced from $105,100 the 195kW/280Nm Boxster hits the market $1500 cheaper than the 202kW/290Nm Cayman ($106,600). The price gap […]

Because Cayman GT4

I always say that if I ever win Lotto the first car I would go and order would be a 911 GT3. But I think that’s about to change. Supply issues aside, a Cayman GT4 is working its way to my #1 Lotto status! Thanks to Evo, Autocar and PistonHeads for the opinion altering assistance.

Andreas Preuninger talks Porsche Cayman GT4

We already love the Porsche Cayman GT4, so hearing Porsche’s boss of GT cars Andreas Preuninger talk about his new toy was something we have been looking forward to. We thank Jethro Bovingdon and Evo magazine for bringing this video to the world. Preuninger goes through technical details of the 1340kg 283kW/420Nm GT4 sharing with […]

Porsche Cayman GT4 revealed

// Posted in Porsche

Forget everything. This is all the sportscar you will ever need. It’s the new Porsche Cayman GT4. It’s got a 283kW 3.8 litre flat six engine from a 911. It’s got a 6-speed manual gearbox and only a 6-speed manual gearbox; this is a PDK-free zone! It’s got perfect mid-engined balance and poise. It’s got […]

Porsche finally makes a proper 911

// Posted in Porsche

The Porsche 911 is a great car. A 911 GT3 sits pretty close to the top of our we just won lotto list. But let’s face it, it’s only due to the sheer bloody mindedness and excellence of Porsche’s engineers that a car with its engine over its arse is any good. In some respects […]

2015 Porsche Cayman GT4 says hello

// Posted in Porsche

The Porsche Cayman GT4 has been spotted testing again. We can’t give you a lot of detail, other than to say this model will be to the Cayman range what the GT3 is to the 911 range. Interesting that it’ll wear a GT4 badge, though. And actually, with the expected improvements to handling (revised suspension), […]

Listen to the new Cayman four-pot turbo

The 981.2 Porsche Boxster/Cayman will be released next year and it will be the first time the models have been sold with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. At least it’ll be a boxer configuration, meaning it should sound better than the ubiquitous 2.0 litre inline four-pots found under the bonnet of most hot hatches these days. […]

Go out and play!

Clearly no longer members of the Flat Earth Society (yes, they do still exist), Porsche informs us the world is a curve and that we should go out and play. They chose to do this by taking a Cayman GTS somewhere in Northern Italy, to a very cool go kart track, and having some fun. […]

Porsche Cayman GTS v 996 911 GT3

Evo has come up trumps with a great Porsche comparison. Jethro Bovingdon takes a brand new Cayman GTS and compares it to a 10-year-old GT3. Which is better? Which one would you buy? [Thanks to Tim for the tip]
