911 BOXSTER CAYENNE CAYMAN PANAMERA

As the manufacturer of some of the best known, most recognisable and most desirable sports and performance cars in the world, the Porsche brand is one that evokes images of quality and engineering prowess the world over.

In recent years, Porsche have expanded their range, which previously consisted of sports cars designed for speed, to include the luxury Panamera, a full-size executive car, and their crossover SUV, the Cayenne. These models contribute to the Porsche standard of engineering excellence, though they have similar drawbacks when it comes to insurance premiums.

  • As a luxury brand, focused on performance and speed, Porsches are often considered large risks by insurers
  • High values and powerful engines contribute to models in the Porsche range falling into generally high insurance groups
  • Finding the right protection for your Porsche, at the right price, can be difficult

That's where Confused.com can help. Enter your details on our simple online form, and you can compare policies and prices from our panel of trusted insurance companies. You can browse by price and level of protection to find the right cover for you.

In the tables below, we’ve collected some of the main factors that may contribute to insurance and running costs of your Porsche, including typical insurance groups and tax bands. You can browse these to gauge potential costs along the Porsche range.

Porsche 911

The Porsche 911 is the flagship of Porsche’s current line-up. It has a distinctive design, which includes independent rear suspension and a rear-engine layout, and is widely considered one of the best looking cars in its class.

Throughout its lifetime the 911 has been modified both in the factory and by outside teams for rallying, racing, and a range of other competitions. It is also amongst the most successful competition cars ever, with wins in various fields all over the world.

In 2005, the 997 derivation of the 911 was nominated for the World Car of the Year award. Sports car international has also placed the 911 in the top 10 sports cars of both the 1960’s and 70’s, and Automobile magazine listed the 911 as #2 in the 100 coolest cars list.

Porsche Boxster

The Porsche Boxster is the entry-level alternative to the 911, designed to be more affordable. Despite this, engine sizes of 2.5 litres and above still help contribute to the Boxster being in fairly high insurance groups.

Worried that their stylish-yet-expensive 911 would lead them to bankruptcy, Porsche created the Boxster – an entry level, affordable alternative to its Hollywood counterpart.

The six-cylinder Boxster engine can tear down most roads with ease, though it’s not a car built purely for speed. Porsche have mixed performance with excellent handling that is responsive and precise, and has been praised by car review organisations across the world.

Among the Boxster’s many awards are Auto Expresses’ 2012 Roadster of the Year, and Automobile magazine’s All Stars Award, both in 2010 and 2012.

Porsche Cayenne

The Porsche Cayenne is a big, powerful crossover SUV with an engine range starting at 3.0 litres. Put a Porsche badge and price tag on it, and you’ve got what insurers might consider a particularly risky vehicle.

When Porsche, famous for small sports cars, introduced their 4x4 offering in 2002, people weren’t quite sure what to make of it. Porsche tried to expand their range whilst holding onto their reputation for performance handling and an excellent driving experience, and whilst a crossover SUV might not have been the easiest way of going about it, the general consensus is that they succeeded.

The Cayenne comes with a large engine range, so that customers can still choose the level of performance and power they want from their car. Furthermore, despite its size and bulk, the Cayenne is light and steady to handle, with all the space of an SUV, combined with the prestige and handling of a Porsche.

Porsche Cayman

The Porsche Cayman falls somewhere between the Boxster and the 911. It has a mid-range engine just like the Boxster, offering extra space in both the boot and the bonnet, and whilst holding onto the sports car pedigree of the Porsche brand, it is not as hi-tech or expensive as the 911.

The Cayman has slightly more rigid handling than others in the Porsche family, but it still has the same harmony of performance and build-quality for which its German manufacturer is famous. It has not been crash safety tested by EuroNCAP, though it does come with a range of safety features including Porsche's ceramic composite brakes, stability management and full-size, frontal and off-set airbags. 

While cheaper than the 911, the Cayman still has the high performance that insurers rate highly on. Though newer Cayman models tend to fall into lower insurance groups than older models, they are still generally quite high, starting at 37. Newer Cayman models may also tend to cost less to road tax than older models of similar specification.

Porsche Panamera

Porsche's Panamera is another example of how the company has branched out over recent years. Similar to the recent release of their first 4X4 offering, Porsche released the Panamera in 2009, hoping to reach out and appeal to another market of drivers - those looking for comfort and practicality, as well as power, in their performance car.

The Panamera mixes the traditional Porsche performance and handling with a body designed for space. It combines room for storage and passengers with the typical Porsche power and style. You’ll find the Panamera has plenty of room inside, and is actually designed to go faster than many of its sportier counterparts.

The Platinum edition of the Panamera includes more standard equipment, larger wheels and an exclusive leather interior colour scheme. The Panamera is also available in diesel and hybrid engines, if off the mark speed isn’t one of your main concerns.

Expensive to buy, run and repair, Porsche Panamera car insurance is generally amongst the most expensive

Porsche; did you know?

  • Founded - Stuttgart, Germany, 1931
  • Headquarters - Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, Germany
  • Owner - Volkswagen AG
  • Founder - Ferdinand Porsche

Founded more than 80 years ago, Porsche has not always produced the powerful, luxury cars it is famous for today. When it started, the company offered motor vehicle development work and consulting, with no production facility of its own. The first Volkswagen Beetle was designed by Ferdinand Porsche, before the two companies collaborated in 1939 to begin production of the VW-Porsche 914 and 194-6.

The Stuttgart-based manufacturer launched the iconic 356 in 1947, before the introduction of the 911 in 1964, branded Porsche on the motoring world’s consciousness as an emblem of speed, innovation and engineering quality. Today Porsche employs over 11,000 staff and is the world’s largest manufacturer of racing cars.
