Porsche’s 911 Carrera offers slowest depreciation rate
Porsche has revealed that it has come out on top in the depreciation stakes, after analysis of more than 40,000 new models and prices from industry specialist CAP by Auto Express forecasted that the new 911 Carrera will offer the slowest depreciation of all new cars on sale in UK.
The cars with the best depreciation are those that are predicted to lose less than 50% of their value either after clocking 30,000 miles or three years after they were purchased as new.
Taking the lead in the top 10, the Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet has a ‘future trade value’ of 55.3%, while the Boxster is also forecasted to retain 51.9% of its value.
Commenting on the figures, the manufacturer added:
“High demand for pre-owned models, particularly through the official Porsche Approved programme, is a key contributor to the cars’ residual values remaining strong over their lifetime. The long-standing attraction of a Porsche is also a factor in their sustainability. In fact, around two-thirds of all Porsches ever built are still on the road today.
”The new 911 Carrera went on sale in December 2011 and among the benefits of the model, according to Porsche, is its ‘efficient’ flat-six engines, benchmark driving dynamics and iconic design. The strengths of the new generation of the Boxster, which arrived in Porsche Centres in May, according to the manufacturer, include Porsche Intelligent Performance.
Porsche has recently revealed that it will be debuting the new all-wheel driver 911 Carrera 4 and 4S at the Paris Motor Show (29 September to 4 October 2012)in Coupé and Cabriolet body styles.
The range of standard equipment that will feature on the models includes a 4.6-inch colour touch-screen, Porsche Communication Management with satellite navigation, automatic climate control, Bi-Xenon headlights and a universal audio interface offering MP3 connectivity.
