PRICE RANGE £24,000-200,000 Af­ter 2015’s rise in 911 val­ues, you might have ex­pected 2016 to be a cool­ing-off pe­riod. Fair and good ex­am­ples do well but haven’t achieved ridicu­lously high prices, but when it comes to fan­tas­tic con­di­tion – ei­ther orig­i­nal or re­stored – or the rarer, hot­ter ex­am­ples, and it can be all to play for. Luck­ily for the would-be owner there are af­ford­able 911s out there, but that means look­ing at 996s cars, which can be night­mare money pits if the en­gine lets go. But – and it’s a big BUT – first­time buy­ers need to tread care­fully be­cause some nasty bodged-up ones can look as su­per­fi­cially good as goodor­der cars. Buy one of the for­mer and you’ll be put off 911s for life. ONE THAT SOLD 1983 Porsche 911 3.2 Targa £35,560 (Sil­ver­stone)
