Porsche is a German specialty car manufacturer, known for producing high quality sports cars, SUVs, and sedans. The current lineup of Porsche models includes the 718 Boxster and Cayman, 911, Panamera, Macan, Cayenne, and Taycan. Porsche has an appeal in the niche market of expensive, luxurious vehicles, but it also has a reputation for producing reliable cars as well.
In 2011, there was a study done in Canada that revealed that over 97% of Porsches made in the last 25 years were still being driven on the road. In 2014, Porsche Cayman and Boxster models were on the list of most reliable vehicles in the world by Consumer Reports.
Porsche is a car brand that is associated with luxury and expensive taste; however, with such a reputation comes high expectations. Over the years, Porsche has had some defects that had called its reputation into question.
Consumers have complained about having to take their Porsches in to be fixed for engine and cooling problems. Excessive smoke coming from Porsches has been reported in the 911 and the Boxster. In many cases, this was because of a faulty oil separator.
There were also problems reported about coolant leaking out of Porsches, specifically the Panamera and Cayenne. Unfortunately, this problem can go undetected for a while because the coolant can drip into the center, where there is a valley, and it does not drip immediately onto the floor.
