How much does a Porsche cost to insure?
Porsche cars are and will forever be associated with speed – but not all Porsches these days are ‘sports cars’. While iconic two-seater Porsches are still hugely attractive, Porsche now offers larger more family-orientated vehicles in the shape of the Porsche Cayenne and the Porsche Macan.
Given the breadth of the Porsche range – with varying engine sizes and different features, the price you pay for your car insurance will change from car to car.
Let’s take the rear-engine Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe – the classic look of the 911 with the long, flat bonnet and steeply inclined windscreen has changed little over the years. The Carrera S Coupe has an average premium of £949*.
Staying with Porsche high-performance cars, there is the shapely and sleek Porsche Cayman which can go from 0-60mph in 4-5 seconds and has a top speed of 188mph. Given the power under the bonnet insuring a Cayman is not cheap – it has an average premium of £1,185*.
Finally, if your preference is for a luxury SUV with off-road capabilities, the Cayenne S comes in with an average premium of £1,732*. Just because this is a four-door Porsche and much bigger in size than the Carrera or Cayman, it's no slouch – it can go from 0-60mph in 4-6 seconds.

Porsche history and facts
Ferdinand Porsche was renowned for innovations in automotive engineering at the beginning of the last century. You might say he was ahead of his time considering he built an electric vehicle with wheel hub drive in 1900 and in the same year, he provided a template for hybrid vehicles with the development of a gasoline-electric mixed drive – (to put in context that is over 120 years ago!)
Ferdinand laid the foundations for some of the finest cars ever built. But it was his son Ferry who shortly after the second World War in 1948 unveiled the first car under the Porsche brand - the 356 "No.1" Roadster. The Porsche sports car had arrived.
Keeping things in the family, the successor to the 356, the Porsche 911, was designed by Ferry Porsche's son Ferdinand Alexander. The 911 was first presented to the public in 1963 and has now been built more than a million times. And although the car has been continuously developed and improved over decades – the essential shape and look have changed little.
The Porsche has always exuded ‘cool’ whether on the road or the race track. And in 1971, it was the Porsche 917K that Hollywood legend and racing fanatic Steve McQueen chose to drive in his film Le Mans. It is never clear who had the top billing in the film – car or driver.
