Study shows Porsche is best at holding value

Porsche marque is most commonly associated with life in the fast lane, but a new survey shows that the Stuttgart sports cars are the slowest when it comes to losing value.

Analysis of more than 40,000 new models and prices from industry specialist CAP by Auto Express saw Porsche top the table of the top ten slowest depreciating cars in the UK. The best cars are those predicted to lose less than 50 per cent of their value over three years/30,000 miles after being purchased new. In pole position is the new Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet with a ‘future trade value’ of 55.3%. The iconic rear-engined sports car is joined by the Boxster, which is forecast to retain 51.9% of its value.

The top position of the new 911 - which went on sale in December 2011 - demonstrates how the combination of efficient flat-six engines, benchmark driving dynamics and iconic design ensure the enduring appeal of the Porsche and lead to slow depreciation. The new generation of the Boxster arrived in Porsche Centres in May, and the core strengths of Porsche Intelligent Performance also underpin the values of the mid-engined roadster.
