Porsche Wins TUV and Dekra Reliability Awards

The entire Porsche range of vehicles (excluding the Panamera, which is obviously not yet eligible for this kind of testing) has won a set of prestigious 2010 quality and reliability German awards. This is far from being shocking news, but we're still interested in the German manufacturer's recipe of staying at the top.

The big star is obviously the 911, which was nominated as the overall winner of this year’s 2010 Autobild TUV Report. The supercar with a lot of assets achieved first place for reliability and build quality in both two to three-year old vehicle category and the six to seven-year old category. It has also been named the best sports car in the current quality comparison by the inspection organization Dekra, with mileage in excess of 100.00 km.

The company’s entry model, the mid-engined Boxster, has been declared the best sports car in the TUV eight to nine-year old vehicles category. The Boxster and the 911 are the usual suspects for this kind of competitions, having won several titles over the last few years.

The full-size Cayenne is the winner of Dekra’s 50,000 to 100,000 kilometer SUV category. Exceptional performance, but we're still not big fans of a racing badged SUV, so we'll skip the applause for this one.

We usually tend to trust these reports and won’t make an exception this time. “Why?”, one might ask us. It’s simple: for example, the TUV one is based on an evaluation of more than 7.4 million general inspections performed by the TUV in Germany over a one-year period. We’re glad someone’s doing all that work for us!
