Porsche 911

The Porsche 911 is without doubt one of the most iconic sports cars of all time.

Never straying from its unique rear-engined philosophy, the 911 has spawned innumerable versions over the last 50 years. Initially powered by an air-cooled 'flat' six-cylinder engine that gradually grew in capacity and sophistication, it controversially switched to water-cooling in the late 1990s.

Along the way, the 911 never lost sight of its primary function; a nimble, agile and beautifully engineered sports car designed for the enthusiast - despite its reputation as a toy of the rich and vacuous. The two-plus-two, two-door coupe bodystyle is still offered in numerous styles, including a drop-top and a targa top version. It’s also offered in performance-orientated versions that can now top half a million dollars on the showroom floor.

Current prices range from $236,300 to $502,600 for the 911 Carrera and 911 Turbo S.

  • Best Porsche 911 for $40,000

    You're in pretty safe territory with the Porsche, they're soundly engineered and well built. They give little trouble if they're properly serviced, although the cost of servicing can be high. It's a good idea to cosy up to a Porsche specialist for repairs and servicing to save a few bucks. Go for a car that might be a little older but in good condition rather than a later one that has been round the block a few times.
