Saving enough to buy the car of your dreams is cause for celebration—and a lot of research. Overall, the best used Porsche 911 is the 2017 model year—here’s why.
While you can find older 911 models for cheaper, the 2017 Porsche 911 offers you the best bang for your buck. It was a major redesign year for the Porsche 911, and the model hasn’t changed much since. That means you’ll get many of the most up-to-date features without paying the higher price tag on a more recent vehicle.
Used prices for an entry-level 2017 Porsche 911 are in the fair market range of $72,000 to $82,000, according to Kelley Blue Book. Keep in mind that you’ll pay more for a higher-trim 911 with upgrades or convertible configurations.
Many variables can go into the cost of your used Porsche 911, and the same goes for its car insurance policy. Even when you’re getting the best-value Porsche, you can still expect to pay an arm and a leg to insure it—especially if you go with a recommended full-coverage insurance policy.
