3. Porsche 911 (1993-1998)

Best used Porsches

As the last air-cooled 911, and considered by many to be the most desirable 911 of all, the 1993-1998 generation (or 993) is a very charismatic car. Even if all you can find for this sort of money is one of the less sought-after Tiptronic automatic versions, it'll be worth the cash because it's a surefire classic. This version of the 911 is a fabulously involving drive, unfettered by modern electronics to dilute the experience.

2. Porsche Macan

Best used Porsches

While it isn’t the most spacious SUV around, few can come close to matching the Macan's sublime driving experience, especially in lightning-quick Turbo guise, which is available within budget. It’s even better than the pricier Cayenne and, what’s more, the Macan is a more manageable size, not to mention its lower price and running costs. It is, in short, a great used buy if you want a Porsche but need the practicality of an SUV.

1. Porsche Cayman (12-16)

2014 Porsche Cayman GTS UK first drive

Porsche made this generation Cayman for just four years before it was replaced with a new, more efficient – but less soulful – four-cylinder version. That makes it worth buying, simply to experience the glorious yowl of one of Porsche’s flat-six engines. The rest of the driving experience is, as you’d expect, exceptional, but try to find one with the optional adaptive suspension; without it, the ride is properly firm. Oh, and if you've got the close to the full £50,000 to spend, go for a GTS model. It's the quickest variant – bar the track-focused GT4 – and is incredibly thrilling to drive.  

We found: 2014 Porsche Cayman GTS, 44,204 miles, £47,000
