2017 Porsche Macan Review: The average edition of a stellar SUV

Porsche does not often, if ever, build lackluster vehicles. Rather, its stock in trade are automobiles that catch your eye just before their power makes you stop to catch your breath. Consider, then, the exception that is the new-for-2017 base model Porsche Macan, the entry-level follow-up to the outstanding Macan S, GTS, and Macan Turbo trio that have dazzled since first introduced a mere two years ago. Now equipped with a turbocharged four-cylinder motor in place of the turbo six found in its siblings, the most affordable Macan makes a clear trade: scintillating performance for mass market appeal.

If the 2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo can’t convince you wagons are sexy, it’s hopeless

If the 2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo can’t convince you wagons are sexy, it’s hopeless

Automakers have been forced to try all manner of tricks and sleight of hand - witness the trend of jacked-up crossovers - to try to get the US to warm to the wagon, but if all else fails you can call it something different and hope nobody notice. Audi did it with the "Avant", and it's just what Porsche has done with the 2018 Panamera Sport Turismo.

Porsche continues to give stick shift fans the manual transmissions they crave, and the good news is that the 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 is no different.

My Top 5 Track and Performance Driving Events of 2016

What an epic year. Right around this time last year, I made one New Year’s resolution for 2016: drive as many tracks around the world as humanly possible. To my amazement, I did just that. While I did make that my singular resolution for the new year, I didn’t really care which cars I drove as long as I was on a track somewhere. That opened up some fairly unusual opportunities both for me and for SlashGear: read on for five of the most memorable.
