Porsche 911/993/996/Boxster 1988-06 - 2018 Market Review
Porsche 911 Turbo 3.3 cabriolet

A massive price range shows just how desirable some late-series Porsches are and how little interest there can be in others.

The last air-cooled 993s are firmly entrenched in the collector market, and like the all-wheel drive Carrera 4 can frequently top $150,000.

From there, demand slumps dramatically and it is possible to pay just $30,000 for a 3.4-litre, liquid cooled car in good condition.

Replacement of that model and its suspect engine with a 3.6-litre helped somewhat. Late-series 911 Turbos attract as much attention as early ones yet cost twice as much.

The Boxster 986 is the sports car Porsche should have built 40 years ago and they sell very well. Try for one of the 3.2-litre cars that start at $20,000.
