What? A Porsche For Under $25,000

by : Victor Martel

Not everyone can afford a new Porsche, Ferrari or Lamborghini. Most believe that you need a massive bank account to even consider buying one. How many people though have considered a quality pre-owned Porsche? Aha you say, I really never thought about that. Well now you should because there are some excellent pre-owned luxury and exotic cars available in the marketplace. You just need to know where to look.

Take a tour on the Internet. You will be pleasantly surprised at what you will find. There are all kinds of bargains among older upscale motor cars that still have lots of quality life in them along with the wow factor as well.

A good friend of mine was ready to plunk down about $24,000.00 for a pre-owned Honda. He did not necessarily want or need a Honda, it was just in his budget and a Honda is a very good car. Sure it is newer than the examples I give below, but it is not a Porsche. So I asked him this question. Why did you choose this Honda? He said, because I saw it advertised at a dealership and that was what I wanted to spend. All well and good I responded. Then I asked him the all important question. Would you ever consider buying a Porsche for that same $24,000.00? He immediately said of course but where the heck am I going to find a Porsche for $24,000.00? Well, the rest is history as we drive to our local pub for a pint of ale in his 1986 Porsche 911 he purchased for $22, 950.00.

Let us explore some examples of luxury/exotic cars for under $25,000.00.

On a very popular luxury/exotic car website there is a 1983 Porsche 911 SC advertised for $15,750.00. There are several pictures and the car looks like it is in pristine condition. The written description of the car sounds very appealing as well. It does have 95,000 miles on it, but hey, this is a classic 25 year old Porsche for under $20,000. You are bound to get head turners on this one.

How about another classic? A 1996 BMW M6 with only 43,000 miles. The owner of this classic is asking $22,750.00. Here is another Porsche. 1986 911 Carrera with 95,000 miles offered at $19,911.00. As you can see, these are but a few luxury/exotic cars that can be purchased for under $25,000.00. By spending a few hours online and researching your options, you will discover a whole new world of fine luxury and exotic motor cars available to purchase for under $25,000.00.

Now comes the interesting and fun part. If you are thinking about buying a car, especially a luxury or exotic car, will you now start to think about a quality pre-owned Porsche or BMW or even a Ferrari? Many of these fine motor cars are readily available for under $25,000.00. Think of the amount of money you can save as compared to buying a new luxury or exotic car. You will undoubtedly fulfill your ego and you will have a heftier bank account to show for it as well.

One thing is for sure; if you did not think you can afford a Porsche, think again.
