3. Porsche 968

Best used Porsches

As the final evolution of a line-up of cars that had started with the front-engined 924 back in 1976, the 968 took those cars’ famous poise and married it to a freshly updated 3.0-litre engine that developed an impressive 237bhp. Throw beefed-up suspension and brakes into the mix and it isn’t hard to see the appeal of the 968.

2. Porsche 911 (97-04)

Best used Porsches

The cheapest way to get into a Porsche 911 is this, the 1997-2004 generation. And while its controversial looks and iffy reputation will put some buyers off, these prices are not to be sniffed at, because they mean this 911 delivers a driving experience almost unparalleled for the cash. Reliability issues with earlier cars mean it's best to buy later models, and make sure there's a full service history.

While the looks of the first-generation Porsche Cayman divided opinion, what can’t be denied is the fabulous driving experience its mid-engined layout offered. Early cars suffered with engine problems, but for this budget you can just about afford one of the later examples – even if you have to settle for the less powerful 2.9-litre model, it’s just as much fun in corners.

We found: 2010 2.9, 67,000 miles, £19,995
