Porsche is renowned across the world and is one of the most iconic automobile manufacturers in the industry. Well known as a high-end maker of top-quality sports cars, the company also makes a range of accessories for discerning fans of motorsports. Porsche produces a wide range of quality vehicles, though they all retain a high-end and sporty appearance.
After rising from the ashes of World War II, initially Porsche only offered motor vehicle development work and consulting. Porsche began branching out into manufacturing following a request to design a car for the German government, however, and the company soon became well known for producing sleek and sporty-looking cars. The company first became immensely popular in the 1970s after the American Department of Transportation announced plans to ban convertible cars because of possible safety issues. This announcement caused the public to panic buy convertible cars, and the sales of the very sporty and distinctive Porsche Targa soon shot through the roof.
Though the Targa is no longer manufactured, the spirit of the car is alive in the five mainstay models of the Porsche line. This includes the Porsche Boxster, the Porsche Cayman, the Porsche Carerra, the Porsche Cayenne, and the Porsche Panamera. All of Porsche's vehicles retain the sleek and sporty feel of their predecessors, but some, such as the Porsche Cayenne, have been designed to appeal to family drivers who require more space. As such, the Cayenne retains its sporty look, but is actually a five-seat midsized crossover rather than a two-seater sports car proper, in the case of the Boxster or the Carerra. All Porsche cars are classed as high-end vehicles, and to this end, they retain their value well, meaning even a used Porsche can be somewhat expensive to purchase.
