It is no secret that Porsche has long been one of the most admired cars in the world. It is also highly sought after. Many people dream of being able to own one. While the price tag might be out of reach for many, that does not mean that a person cannot dream. One of the appealing aspects of Porshe is its design. Through the years, various models have come and gone. The car itself is built on a small, sporty body. With most of them only holding two people, this is not a car that gets to haul the family around town in. At the same time, it is a car that appeals to young and old alike. If you own one, then you are well aware of the fact that they go fast and that you will have your fair share of people envying you as you go soaring down the highway. One great thing about the Porsche brand is that the value of the used car seems to do remarkably well. Whereas most cars tend to depreciate rapidly over time, that is not usually the case with the Porsche. In fact, many people would rather buy a used Porsche than a new one. That might be you. if so, this list will really come in useful. Here are the 10 best used Porsche models that money can buy.
10. Porsche 912
This is a beautiful car. It is one of the more iconic Porsche models that you will find on the war today. It is true Porsche the way that many people will remember them. It is pre-1969, but it has since been reconfigured. It has a four-cylinder engine and packs quite a powerful punch. It is a charming car that is probably one of the more affordable ones that are on this list.
9. Porsche 914
This is a unique Porsche. It will not win any beauty awards. Come to think of it, it will not win any races on the track or highway either. With that being said, you will probably find that his works in your favor if you are trying to find a way to get into a Porsche. Of all of the used cars on this list, this only probably has the best pricing point. That being said, while the 914 used to stay out of the limelight, more and more people today are starting to see its value. This is beginning to result in increased value being placed on the 914, so you might want to get one before it is too late.
8. Porsche 911 Targa (964)
This version of the Porsche 911 is designated with the number 964. While it is true that the 993 was the last such car to be air-cooled, this one has a perfect mix of the classic Porsche look combined with modern enhancements that will make you more than proud to own one. The Carrera 2 coupe is especially popular. In its manual form, it is highly ranked and desireable by many who love the Porsche brand. The price at the present down is way down there, relatively speaking, so you might want to check it out.
7. Porsche 924
As far as the 10 best used Porsche models that money can buy goes, this has long been one of the cheapest for you to consider. There was a time not too long ago when you could buy this model, used of course, for less than $3,000. You might have missed your chance to do that, however, as now most 924 owners are restoring them and getting a pretty penny for them on the back end. An interesting fact about this model is that it was the first front-engine transaxle model for the Porsche, helping to solidify the brand's comeback in the 1980s.
6. Porsche Panamera S Manual
This car made its debut in 2009 as a substitution for the front engine V8 luxury car that Porsche had scrapped not long ago. It is five doors, making it different than many of the other Porsche cars on the road. This one also saw the brand enter the modern age. You will find that you can get this one as a V6, diesel, hybrid, and even as a Tubo sports car. Most of these cars have an automatic transmission, but you can get a manual. That is the one that makes this list.
5. Porsche Boxster
This is probably one of the better known models on the road today. That is probably why it still is so valuable. You cannot go wrong with owning a Boxster unless of course, you are too big to actually fit in it. The cab is not exactly the roomiest out there.
4. Porsche 911 GT3
An interesting fact about the GT3 is that it was the first Porsche model to use PASM adjustable damping. This really sped up the car and has made it wildly popular, even to this day.
3. Porsche 911 G Series
You will not really stay cool when driving this car, but it is a true classic. This is an iconic Porsche car that has really held its value well. It still has that 60s look that many people long for. This might not be the most comfortable Porsche out there, but it sure will turn a few eyes your way.
2. Porsche 911 Carrera
This is a modern version of the 911 and it certainly is fun to drive. This one has a 3.4 liter engine as opposed to an electronic throttle
1. Porsche Carrera GT
You really cannot go wrong with owning a Carrera GT. This is why it is number one on this list. Go out and see it in person and let us know what you think.
