Porsche 911 Car­rera S // £30,000+

Top Gear (UK) - - NEW OR USED? -

Iconic, ridicu­lously prac­ti­cal for the sec­tor, an ab­so­lute hoot to drive

Ev­ery­one’s got one, in­surance... er... not much else

So nearly £50,000, eh? For that, you can man­age the ob­vi­ous ri­vals (like a Porsche Cay­man or TT RS, etc), but how about look­ing at some­thing more pres­ti­gious with a few miles un­der its belt? The big­ger, al­ready iconic Porsche 911, for in­stance. There are plenty of 997 911s avail­able for un­der £50k, and even a cur­sory search of Porsche’s UK-wide ap­proved used web­site re­veals de­cent choice with un­der 30k on the clock. How about a 385bhp grey metal­lic 911 Car­rera S with PDK and Sport Chrono Pack­age Plus, and just 28,000 miles, in­clud­ing a cou­ple of years left to run on a Porsche warranty? It might not have the ‘new’ ap­peal of the re­ally rather won­der­ful Alpine, but you’re get­ting a lot of car for the money, and one with a broader day-to-day reach than the com­mit­ted lit­tle A110, which only re­ally has space for a few pairs of pants and a brief­case.
