Currently, the best values in used Porsches are the 986 and 996 generation cars. Both the Boxster (986) and 911 (996) offer a good amount of performance with prices of both being south of $20,000. In fact you can find a clean running early Boxster for as low as $5,000.

Sure it would be easy to just saw the latest 911, 718 Boxster or 718 Cayman and call it done. However, if you have the cash for a new Porsche then the cars in this series are not for you (with a few exceptions). These are cars for someone that is wanting to get their first Porsche, but they don’t want it to break the bank. All of them can be had for under $30,000 with some being as low as about $5,000 for a running car in decent condition.

With a lower budget a buyer is likely to want a car that they can do the routine maintenance themselves. It also needs to be fairly dependable as it may double as a commuter car as well as a weekend driver. Below is the list of Porsche’s that we think best fit this criteria.
