There are some cars which have been manufactured with a particular destiny in mind for them. This could be to be driven every single day and accrue hundreds of thousands of miles before finally giving up on life and grinding to a halt on the hard shoulder of the motorway. Adversely there are some cars that will be lovingly looked after, spending the majority of their days covered by a dustsheet in somebody’s garage. When you buy yourself a Porsche 911, you can be sure that it is going to be in the latter camp rather than the former.
I personally think it is something of a tragedy that the vast majority of high-performance vehicles (vehicles which have been built and tuned to an undeniably high specification) spend 95% of their lives gathering dust. You can understand why this is the case when you take a look at the costs of running a car like a Porsche 911.
Firstly there is the initial outlay of buying one of these sports cars, add to this the top bracket insurance, tax costs and all of a sudden the bills start to mount up considerably. There are a few ways that you can reduce the cost of owning a sports car like a Porsche though.
Primarily, I would recommend checking out the Used Porsche market as this is where the most affordable bargains are going to be. As I have explained, cars like Porsches don’t get taken out a great deal so you can be sure that it will have been looked after.
