5 high-performance Porsche cars in the last 5 years
When it comes to buying high-performing cars, nothing beats Porsche. The company has been manufacturing the finest, fastest and most ground-breaking vehicles for more than a century, and it’s safe to say that the Porsche brand is probably one of the most recognizable in the world.
The variety of models is vast, and believe it or not, making a choice can be a real challenge. Here are 5 high-performance Porsche cars that have rocked our world in the last 5 years.
- Porsche 911 GTS
Porsche’s 911 GTS is a true masterpiece. Sleek, fast, and smooth this jewel is probably the best out of the 911 model range. It is powerful and it offers a fine driving experience. Featuring an aspirated engine at an incredibly high level, the 911 GTS is a beautiful combination of speed, performance and attractive design. Drives have a 7-speed manual gearbox to play with, and a max power of 430 hp. As far as the interior is concerned, the 911 GTS packs a minimalistic style that will surely fuel up your need for speed.
- Porsche Cayman
The Cayman looks pretty much like the Boxter. It was launched in 2013 and somehow managed to step out of the 911’s shadow. Featuring smarter styling and a beautiful exterior, the Cayman has an identity of its own. The vehicle is quite sublime, and it is a pleasure to drive. Light, fast and easy to handle, this beauty looks like your coupe for every day, but with a little small under hood. There are several things you should know about the Cayman, in case if you’re looking to make a purchase. The vehicle comes with a 2.7- liter flat-6 engine and a sizable 3.4 liter engine.
- Porsche Macan
With a basic architecture that somehow reminds us of the Audi Q5, Porsche Macan is an SUV with some pretty cool features. The vehicle packs 340 hp, a twin-turbo 3 liter V 6 engine, and a 7-speed manual transmission. It can be easily recognized because it still has the Porsche exterior allure – in spite of the big, bulkier built. This beautiful off-roader will pleasantly surprise you. It comes with air suspension, which improves ride quality, and it brings a lot of engineering integrity to the table. Beautifully designed, the Macan prides with extremely precise steering; on the inside, it is obvious that we’re talking about a Porsche, probably the most attractive non-sports vehicle ever designed by the company in questioning.
- Porsche Cayenne Turbo
The Cayenne was Porsche’s attempt to reinvent the SUV, and get ahead of the competition. The model actually helped the company sell a lot of cars, thus allowing it to fund even more projects, such as the RS Spyder. However it’s the Cayenne Turbo that drew our attention. The luxurious “monster” SUV is a luxurious, 5000 pound car that can reach 170 mph in 4.7 seconds. The vehicle’s driver focused cockpit is similar to the Boxter, Panamera and the recent 911 models, although it does have a personal signature that makes it stand out. In spite of its bulkier built the Cayenne Turbo offers a smooth driving experience. If you have $100,000 to spare and you’d like to invest in a spacious, high-performance Porsche, than look no further.
- Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS
Last but not least, we have Porsche’s 911 Targa 4 GTS. Recently released this year, this Porsche model prides with a classic and ingeniously made Targa style. Featuring a contrasting center hoop and wraparound rear windows, the vehicle looks fantastic to say the least. In terms of driving experience, we must highlight that the wraparound rear windows boosts visibility tremendously. Packed with a 3.8 liter 6-cylinder engine that reaches a maximum 430 hp, Targa 4 GTS will surely exceed all your expectation on the road. Featuring a 7-speed transmission, this model is without a doubt one of the best of year. The mechanical makeup of the chassis is quite impressive too, and as far as the handling is concerned, we can only say this – it is superb.
Porsche has developed some pretty cool cars over the years, so it’s understandable if you can’t make a choice. Have a closer look at the ones we just presented above, and prepare yourself for some unprecedented driving experiences.
