What alternatives should I consider to a used Porsche 911 sports?
BMW doesn’t offer a direct rival for the Porsche 911 Cabriolet, but either an M3 Convertible or 6 Series Convertible might tempt you. Of these it’s the M3 that comes closest to offering the fun driving experience of the 911, even if ultimately its heavy folding metal roof blunts the performance of the V8 engine. The 6 Series on the other hand is more of a cruiser, and outstanding value too on account of heavy depreciation - prices start from as little as £5,000.
A soft-top Jaguar XK might also prove tempting on the value for money front, and is a fine grand tourer, but can’t hope to compete with the 911’s sublime handling.
