No manufacturer has a better understanding of what makes a great sportscar than Porsche. Many have tried and failed to knock the German marque off its pedestal but with each successive new product, it seems to reassert its dominance. As a result, demand for Porsche used cars is strong but considering what you pay for rival models with similar capabilities, the right pre-owned Porsche can be a relative bargain.

The 911 is Porsche's most famous gift to the motoring world. Launched in 1963, it's carefully evolved down the years to stay on top of its game. Launched in 1999, the 996 models are getting more affordable now and like the 997 cars that arrived in 2004, there's a wide variety to choose from on the used car market. The Carrera and Carrera S use the classic rear-engined, rear-wheel drive layout or there are the 4x4 Carrera 4 and 4S models. Second hand car buyers seeking supercar performance might like a 911 Turbo or the stripped out GT3 - or even the hooligan GT2 - but they don't come cheap. The most affordable way to buy a second hand Porsche that isn't too elderly is the Boxster roadster and early models from 1997 are around at very tempting prices. Many even claimed that the mid-engined Boxster was a better balanced and purer driver's car than the 911 and that point of view furthered with the arrival of the Cayman coupe version in 2005. Also worthy of a mention is the Cayenne luxury 4x4, something of a departure for the great brand but a very profitable one. Predictably, it handles better than just about any other luxury 4x4 and is a popular used car purchase.
