This week in the Porsche Club of America’s (PCA) E-Brake Newsletter, there was an article that said now is the time to buy a 986 generation Porsche Boxster. The article partly based the reason why we should purchase a 986 now on the current 914 market.

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 good condition.
