A Porsche is a dream car for many – but some used examples are surprisingly affordable. To prove it, here are the best used Porsches for every budget
It’s no secret that used Porsches are some of the most valuable and sought-after cars on the second-hand market. It’s one reason they’re such an aspiration for so many people.
But while we’d be lying if we said a used Porsche is within reach if you’re buying on a shoe-string, you might be surprised by how accessible a very nice used Porsche could be. Less than £10,000, for example, could put you in a well-looked-after car in good condition – and, of course, with all the dynamism and performance for which Porsche has come to be so well-known.
Find out what sort of used Porsche you might be able to afford by browsing through our guide, which will tell you the best used models for £10,000, £20,000, £30,000 and £50,000.
Best used Porsches for £10,000
Space in the Porsche Cayenne is at a premium compared with rivals, but no rival for the same sort of money drives with quite the same verve or involvement. The Cayenne can hack it in the rough stuff too – and, with its 911-esque styling and interior, feels every bit the Porsche. Running costs are high, though, so make sure your pockets are prepared.

The original Porsche Boxster was one of its maker’s great success stories – some might even go so far as to say that it saved the company. It was immense fun to drive, and to an extent brought Porsche motoring to the masses. Today, it’s one of the best performance car bargains around, and well worth snapping up before its value shoots up.
