Ever since Ferdinand Porsche built his 356 roadster, the name Porsche has become synonymous with high performance sports cars. Today, the name Porsche is as strong as ever in the realm of performance automobiles, no matter which Porsche model is discussed. Whether the Porsche Cayenne, Boxster, or 911 is the topic of conversation, it is their power, handling, and craftsmanship that inspires superlatives.
All modern day discussions about Porsche begin with the 911, successor to the 356. It is with the 911 that the name Porsche would be defined and upon which the rest of the dynasty would be derived. The Porsche 911 of today is an easy car to drive and maintain. With a 3.6 or 3.8 liter 6-cylinder engine, it elevates its super car status.
The Porsche Boxster is another superbly designed sports car with ample power, 295hp, and agile handling characteristics due to its mid-engine balance. Even if you choose your Porsche Boxster with a Tiptronic S automatic transmission, you will be amazed at its quick 0-60 acceleration. Those who prefer the manual transmission, will achieve a Zen-like state of transcendence from running the Boxster through the gears and hearing that engine rev.
Those in the know consider the Porsche Cayenne a true SUV muscle car, and with good reason. Consider the Cayenne Turbo-S, with its 0-60 in 4.9 seconds, a quick sprint to the mall can be a thrilling adventure. The 4.0L V8 engine in this rocket can take the SUV up to 171mph. Porsche has branched out into other vehicle configurations and has gained even more appreciation for manufacturing vehicles with incomparable quality.
