Porsche. It’s a brand name that really needs no introduction or explanation. It is German engineering at its finest and the epitome of luxury sports cars. According to history, industry experts and consumers, Porsche is and pretty much always has been a beloved brand. And for many people, a Porsche is their dream car…what’s not to dream about? Speed, luxury, beauty…oh, and a hefty price tag.
The hefty price tag has not kept Porsche from continuing to increase sales. In fact, Porsche just had their best sales month in history in the U.S. in April 2015, thanks to sales of their brand new SUV, the Macan. And about half of all Porsches sold in the U.S. in 2014 were SUVs! So, in spite of deviating from their long history of sports cars by introducing two SUV models and a sedan, they have remained true to both luxury and performance and seen strong sales because of it.
There is also a strong market for used Porsches, thanks to Porsche’s reliability and longevity on the road. Multiple sources cite that a majority of Porsches from the last 25 years (or more) are still on the road! Porsche vehicles are at the top, or near the top, of many reliability lists too, such as J.D. Power and Consumer Reports. Chances are good, then, that your new or used Porsche will last you a long time without many problems.
