Porsche is an international manufacturer of performance and luxury vehicles. The company was founded in Germany in 1931 as a car manufacturer in partnership with Volkswagen. Like most manufacturers of the time however, Porsche slowed car manufacturing to redirect its resources into war vehicle production – particularly tiger tanks.
It wasn’t until the 1960s that Porche began to build a name for itself as a performance car manufacturer, thanks largely to its automobile racing success. The company today stands as one of the world’s leading luxury vehicle manufacturers, producing SUVs, sedans and sports cars for those who can afford it.

SUVs are offered as part of the Porche Macan and Cayenne ranges. At the time of writing, there are nine types of commercially available models, with prices starting at a little over $100k

The Turbo models of these vehicles are built for extreme performance, with v8 engines, more than 382kW output and turbocharge. The S models are designed for city and suburban driving with more comfort and safety features than you can poke a stick at.
