PORSCHE has the slowest depreciating cars in the UK, according to an analysis of more than 40,000 new models and prices from industry specialist CAP by Auto Express.
The best cars are those predicted to lose less than 50 per cent of their value over three years or 30,000 miles after being purchased new.
In pole position is the new Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet with a future trade value of 55.3 per cent. The iconic rear-engined sports car is joined by the Boxster, which is forecast to retain 51.9 per cent of its value.
The top position for the new 911, which went on sale in December 2011, demonstrates how the combination of efficient flat-six engines, benchmark driving dynamics and iconic design ensure the enduring appeal of the Porsche.
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.
