Porsche unveils new Cayenne Turbo S

I'll admit that when Porsche first announced that it was coming up with an SUV called the Cayenne, I was rather irritated that a sports car company was pandering to the SUV driving masses.

Ferdinand Porsche passes to great racetrack in the sky

It's with great sadness that I report the second well-known tech visionary's death today, Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, otherwise known as one half of the family racing car business founder duo which also included his grandfather.

BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9981 Review

BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9981 Review

At first glance, Porsche Design and BlackBerry might not make obvious bed-fellows. Still, the car firm's aesthetically-obsessed arm has taken up with Canada's finest, and the Porsche Design P'9981 is the result: maple syrup by way of Stuttgart. The less forgiving might draw comparisons between Porsche's legendary reluctance to diverge from its original 1963 car design, and BlackBerry's struggle to break free of its old OS. The frugal will likely be too busy gaping at the $2,350 price tag. So, Porsche or Pinto? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
