Used Porsche - The Epitome of Style
Sometimes, when you think of used cars, you can get an image of cheap, dented, slow cars. Obviously, there is a correlation between money and quality; usually, the cheaper the used car, the more sacrifices have to be made. However, if you buy a Preowned Porsche, for example, you'll be buying a car from a manufacturer renowned for its quality and luxury. Even Used Porsches retain all the desirable features you would expect from a Porsche.
Porsches can retail at the high end of the price-range, and it isn't always possible to invest in a brand new model. That's why buying a Used Porsche is such a popular option; it makes owning a Porsche more accessible, especially to those who need to be mindful of their budget.
One of the reasons Porsche is such a famed company is because of its history, which stretches back more than 100 years, when Ferdinand Porsche was born. Ferdinand had a passion for automobiles, which he passed onto his son, who, in 1948, oversaw the birth of the very first Porsche car.
There are five different models on the Used Porsche market, which all share the same attention to quality, luxury, design and intelligence. Every Porsche model has been designed to make an impact. Driving a Porsche is more than just a convenient way to get from A to B; it's an experience in its own right.
Porsche isn't always the name that springs to mind when thinking about practicality, but you might be surprised at the diversity of the range. There are Used Porsches which offer space for the whole family, while retaining the sporty essence which Porsche prides itself on.
A good model for first time Porsche owners is the classic Porsche Boxster. This model retails at the lower end of the Used Porsche market, and combines all of the features you would expect from a Porsche. The Cayman is the next step-up, and my favourite model in terms of exterior design. It's a unique sports car, and powerful.
The 911 offers an unforgettable experience, and one which is hard to understand unless you have actually taken to the wheel of one. It's a popular choice for those looking for a fast and dynamic Used Porsche.
The Panamera and Cayenne are more family orientated, offering more space, without loosing any of Porsche's style. The Panamera is a sporty four-door Porsche, and the Cayenna is an intelligent SUV, capable of tackling a multitude of adventures.
You can buy a Used Porsche from an individual seller, providing you've done your researched, and made all the necessary checks (don't just rely on the information offered by the vendor). You can also buy from an independent dealership, which can get you a competitive deal, but again, you need to be mindful about the quality. A franchised dealer can offer a little more reassurance than an independent dealer, and might have more money to invest in their cars. And, of course, there are official used Porsche Dealers, which can offer added bonuses such as a warranty and roadside assistance.
Whichever route to owning a Used Porsche you choose, and whichever model you decide best fits with your life and aspirations, you'll be buying something from a company which is not only long established, but legendary.
