Overview
KBB Expert Ratings Countdown: Porsche

As Tom Cruise's character noted in the film "Risky Business": "Porsche - there is no substitute." Owners and fans of cars like the BMW M3, Nissan GT-R and Chevrolet Corvette Z06 may disagree, but few would argue that there's something inherently special about this heralded German marque.

Modern examples, including the Porsche 911 Carrera and the Porsche Boxster, blend contemporary engineering with the brand's historic style, something that models such as the late Porsche 944 and the current Porsche Cayenne SUV have interpreted more loosely. The relatively new Porsche Panamera also deviates from the company's traditional recipe with its four-door design, though rest assured that engineers incorporated go-fast technology commensurate with the Porsche Cayman and the seemingly endless list of Porsche Carrera variants. That's where you'll find popular names like Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo (often simply referred to as the Porsche Turbo), Porsche 911 Carrera S, Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet, as well as Porsche 911 Carrera GT2 and GT3. Serving to offset those familiar models are those that are likely a bit less well-known, a list to which one might add the Porsche Cayenne S Transsyberia.
