Porsche is known for producing some of the best-known and most desirable sports cars in the world. Responsible for the iconic 911, the Porsche brand is one that evokes images of quality and engineering prowess.
The first Volkswagen Beetle was actually designed by Ferdinand Porsche. Both companies then collaborated in 1939 to begin production of the VW-Porsche 914 and 194-6. The Stuttgart-based manufacturer launched the legendary 356 in 1947, before the introduction of the 911 in 1964. The 911 seared Porsche on the motoring world’s consciousness as an emblem of speed, innovation and engineering quality.
As a luxury brand focused on performance and speed, Porsche cars 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.

The Porsche 911 is the flagship of Porsche’s line-up. It has a distinctive design, which includes independent rear suspension and a rear-engine layout. It’s widely considered to be one of the best-looking cars in its class.
Throughout its lifetime, the 911 has been modified for rallying, racing, and a range of other competitions. It’s also among the most successful competition cars ever, with wins in various fields all over the world.
To insure a 911, those aged 36 – 50 would be paying close to £777*.

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 its stylish-yet-expensive 911 would lead it to bankruptcy, Porsche created the Boxster. Porsche’s intention was to create an entry-level, affordable alternative to its Hollywood counterpart. However, the Boxster’s six-cylinder engine means that it doesn’t lack when it comes to speed.
If you’re aged 31 – 45, you may be paying close to £629* to insure a Boxster.

The Porsche Cayenne is a big, powerful crossover SUV with an engine range starting at 3.0 litres. 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, its popularity should come as no surprise.
If you’re looking to insure a Cayenne and you’re aged 41 – 55, you could be paying around £877* for insurance.

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. While not as hi-tech or expensive as the 911, it holds onto the pedigree of the Porsche brand.
Though newer Cayman models tend to fall into lower insurance groups than older ones, they’re still generally quite high. Newer Cayman models may also tend to cost less to tax than older models of similar specification.
Ages 36 – 50 can insure the Cayman for close to £728*.

Porsche's Panamera is another example of how the company has branched out over recent years. Porsche released the Panamera in 2009, hoping to reach out and appeal to a different market of drivers. Those looking for comfort and practicality – as well as power – in their performance car could be very happy with the Panamera.
The Panamera mixes the traditional Porsche performance and handling with a body designed for space. You’ll find the Panamera has plenty of room inside, and is actually designed to go faster than many of its sportier counterparts. To insure a Panamera could cost around £1,358* if you’re aged 41 – 60.
