Porsche Taycan, One Heck Of A Ride!

Driving an electric vehicle, a Porsche Taycan, for the first time was akin to the excitement of a first kiss, where you fall instantly in love. Taycan: electric power consumption* combined (WLTP) 25.4 – 20.4 kWh/100 km, CO₂ emissions combined (WLTP) 0 g/km, electric power consumption* combined (NEDC) 28.7 – 28.0 kWh/100 km, CO₂ emissions combined (NEDC) 0 g/km

Porsche's Next Top Macan

The GTS is last year's Turbo with a different name, but its easily our favorite Macan. Macan GTS: fuel consumption combined (WLTP) 11.7 – 11.3 l/100 km, CO₂ emissions combined (WLTP) 265 – 255 g/km, fuel consumption combined (NEDC) 9.9 l/100 km, CO₂ emissions combined (NEDC) 225 g/km

2022 Porsche Macan GTS Is the One to Get

More power and a host of updates make Porsche's sportiest compact crossover better than ever. Macan GTS: fuel consumption combined (WLTP) 11.7 – 11.3 l/100 km, CO₂ emissions combined (WLTP) 265 – 255 g/km, fuel consumption combined (NEDC) 9.9 l/100 km, CO₂ emissions combined (NEDC) 225 g/km

The 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 remains an unlikely success, and it’s as good as driving gets

The 911 GT3 proudly bucks every trend. Its cabin is not filled with gigantic screens and it does not rely on high-tech gimmicks to sell itself. Porsche’s sports car is not a hybrid, let alone a plug-in or an EV. Its engine isn’t even turbocharged. It doesn’t have all-wheel drive, but it does have a manual transmission. 911 GT3: Fuel consumption combined 13,3 - 12,4 l/100 km (NEDC), Fuel consumption combined 13,0 - 12,9 l/100 km (WLTP), CO₂ emissions combined 304 - 283 g/km (NEDC), CO₂ emissions combined 294 - 293 g/km (WLTP)
