Porsche cars are German automobiles that have always embodied a particular stature that just screams luxury and class. But as a car, compared to other luxury cars, how does it perform? Is it worth investing in one, or are you better off looking for an alternative?
Let’s look at a few prospective features of the Porsche brand of cars and see if it is worth buying one.
Engine, transmission, and performance
Over the years, Porsche cars have had their fair share of engines. They first had the Porsche 64, then the Porsche 356 with a long list of machines under it. Then they have more generational Porsche engine series like the 550, 718, and so many more we cannot possibly cover all in this forum. Most of the newer Porsche models all have Turbocharged engines.
When it comes to transmission, you will often hear the term PDK, which fully reads as Porsche double-clutch transmission. It is a system with two gearboxes in one. It has a hydraulically actuated wet-clutch that lubricates the transmission parts. It also offers alternate power to the engine through two separate drive shafts, but that is dependent on the gear you select. When you choose a gear, the second gearbox sets the next one, so on and so forth. The last two gears offer the utmost performance of comfort and better fuel economy.
Battery life and charging
The battery life of a Porsche battery is estimated to last three to five years. However, this duration may be lengthened or shortened by driving habits, climatic conditions, and the type of battery you are using on your Porsche. The size also plays a significant role; bigger batteries take longer to charge.
