We love cars, but are they a good investment? Should you dump your stock portfolio and plan to use classic cars for your retirement? Why do so many wealthy people invest in cars? These questions and questions like them are all over the internet, but is it a good idea to buy an automobile now to hope you can sell it for a large profit at a later date?

The answer to if cars are a good investment is more complex than it may first appear.

If you have not owned a Porsche and are thinking that it is time to get into one, what should your first Porsche be? 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.
