What Makes Porsche One of the Best Car Brands?

Although the automaker stays true to its roots, over the past few years, Porsche has branched out into comfort, technology, and advanced safety territories. U.S. News continues to commend this expansion and named Porsche a “2018 Best Luxury Brand.” In addition, Porsche earned the Kelley Blue Book “Best Resale Value: Luxury Brand” Award, with KBB declaring, “Porsche continues to blend high-performance heritage with polished luxury.” Porsche also won a J.D. Power award for “Total Ownership Experience” and an Edmunds “Best Retained Value” Award.
