New 2017 Porsche Macan Balances Porsche Performance with Practicality, Says AutoGuide

Sure, it could be considered a "cute 'ute." But the 2017 Macan is still all Porsche, says AutoGuide in a new review. While the Macan will appeal to a broader audience beyond Porsche's dedicated sports car purists and fans of the higher-end Cayman and Panamera, it delivers the driving experience one expects from the boutique German automaker.

The base Macan gets its power from a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Borrowed from the Audi Q5, the 2.0-liter power plant has been reworked to make 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque — 32 more horsepower and...

Porsche purists should stop reading now. Ok, let's get on to the news: all Porsche 911s are now turbocharged! That's right, no more water-cooled engines, never mind air-cooled. Times change, technology marches on. But the good news, according to auto critic Tom Voelk of The New York Times, is that the all-new 2017 edition of the Porsche 911 is better than ever.

AutoGuide Reviews 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster S

But this newest Boxster delivers a pure luxury sports car experience that will be hard - if not impossible - to match by its competitors (does Porsche really have any competitors?). AutoGuide recently reviewed the all-new 718 Boxster and has the following report:

AutoGuide confirms the 718 sounds amazing, drives even better and remains one of the most genuinely engaging sports cars you can buy right now...

Porsche's Signature Model, the 911, Still Sets the Sports Car Standard in 2016, Says the UK's Telegraph

The legendary German sports car manufacturer Porsche introduced its first 911 model in 1963. More than 50 years later, the 2016 Porsche 911 still holds sway for driving enthusiasts of every stripe. The UK's Telegraph recently took the 911 out for a test drive.

The base model of the 911, the Carrera, rockets from 0-62 mph in 4.6 seconds, according to the Telegraph. Steering is remarkably precise and this two door grips corners hard and tight.

Variations on the 911 are nearly endless. You can choose two- or four-wheel drive; a coupe, cabriolet or halfway Targa model body…

Autotrader Puts 2016 Porsche Cayenne Through its Paces

If you've kept pace with our blog page here at Porsche Southpoint, you may well recall a post from just a few months ago, in which we profiled our incredible midsize crossover, the 2016 Porsche Cayenne.

That said, we'd be remiss if we didn't take this opportunity to talk up this top-shelf transport some more today. Fortunately, we've got our friend -- Autotrader commentator, Jabari Jones -- here to help us get things going. His appraisal of the Cayenne is available in the video below:

While we'd certainly never knock the Cayenne's exquisitely appointed entry-level model…
