9 of 10

Best Luxury Brand: Porsche

If it’s a true sports coupe you’re after, Porsche won’t disappoint. The Porsche Cayman and Boxster are very similar vehicles; the notable difference being that the Boxster is a convertible and the Cayman is a hardtop. They’re both midengine sports cars with first-class agility and poise on winding roads.

Inside, both have user-friendly technology and the posh cabin materials you’d expect of a luxury sports car. Unlike some other sports cars, driver and passenger should have no problem getting comfortable in the spacious and cosseting seats.

If you have more money to spend, sports car shoppers can’t do much better than the iconic Porsche 911. It’s one of the most thrilling cars to drive on the market, with a range of potent engine options and exceptional handling. The interior is up to Porsche standards as well, with comfy front seats, premium materials, and handsome styling.

Buyers who need to seat more than two should take a look at the Porsche Panamera. Not only can it fit four adults with room to spare; it can pamper them too. Options like massaging front seats, power-adjustable rear seats, and a power rear sunshade create a highly luxurious environment.

The Panamera’s performance is up to Porsche standards as well. Choose any one of four available engines (ranging from 330 to 550 horsepower), and you’ll be treated to spirited acceleration and authoritative passing power. To top it off, the Panamera offers an admirable balance of sportiness and ride comfort that’ll please both enthusiast drivers and the passengers being chauffeured.
