The new 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo is very fast. Sure the Cayenne, especially in turbocharged form, has for years bent the laws of physics. From a performance stand point the large family hauler can hang with many pure sports cars.

The latest Cayenne Turbo takes the already high performance to the next level. It will let you drop the kids off at soccer practice faster than you think is humanly possible.

Do you recall when the 987 generation of the Porsche Boxster Spyder was released? The press went completely crazy for the lightweight version of the roadster.

The Spyder shaved its weight down to what the original 986 weighted. That’s about 200 pounds less than the 987 S model. It received a small power bump of 10 horsepower over the S. With just these small changes it is how they work together to offer an invigorating driving experience perfect for the track or a back road.

Not only was the Z3 not made in England, but it wasn’t incredibly fast. The model used for GoldenEye used an in-line four-cylinder engine producing just 138 horsepower. This resulted in a 0-60 mph time of 8.1 seconds. That won’t get you away from too many villains trying to kill you.

If you are like me you often find yourself looking at the going rate of used sorts cars. Thanks to depreciation, someone that makes a decent, but not huge, income can drive a car that when new would be well out of reach.

Recently, I’ve been looking at getting a 997 generation Porsche 911 Carrera. The going rate for a well maintained car in the 2008 model year is in the $25,000 – $35,000 range. This is for a car with between 60,000 and 90,000 miles on it (obviously, you pay less for higher mileage examples).
