1. Is the new Macan worthy of the Porsche badge?
By David Hurth
A few weeks ago, Porsche unveiled the much anticipated Porsche Macan. The new compact SUV is the German performance carmaker's first attempt to enter that segment of the market. This new segment has the potential of being quite profitable for Porsche. With the chance of a good financial gain, it is no wonder the automotive manufacturer would like to enter the market, but is the Macan worthy of wearing the Porsche crest?

2. The best Porsche that was never built
By Jason Gonzalez
I was reveling in a 15-minute break from work and prodding through the online classifieds in search of my next something to long for. It was early September, and I was flipping through the 944Online.com forum. A new thread caught my eye. Someone had posed a question about what "your dream 924/944/968" would be. I didn't have to give it much thought. Mine is easy: I want a 944 Carrera GTS. The only problem was that Porsche never made such a car. I knew what I had to do.

Just a few months ago, the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S were revealed and we had the chance to drive both of them. As you would imagine, both are absolutely spectacular sports cars capable of acceleration exceeding some of their mid-engined supercar rivals. However, now images have emerged reportedly showcasing a facelifted Porsche 991 Turbo testing under light camouflage!

5. Porsche B32: The Porsche camper van that almost happened
By Conner Golden
Ah, the Volkswagen Vanagon. For me, the name conjures up images of a strung-out family camper, struggling to reach the crest of the hill on some Colorado back road. Sure, it was not hill-climber, but it was a fun runabout for a family vehicle. You could get all the kids, cargo, luggage and the dog in the back, and still have room to spare. It offered something for everyone. Why, you could even buy one with a Porsche engine. Wait, what?
