Do Cabriolet and Targa prices tail off in winter?

Do Cabriolet and Targa prices tail off in winter?

We’re back to myth-busting again this issue as we address another oft-muttered assumption within our Porsche marketplace: that prices of Cabriolets and Targas change according to the season. So can their values really spike in spring and fall in autumn, for want of a better phrase?

Sales debate - is the Porsche 911 993 undervalued?

Sales debate - is the Porsche 911 993 undervalued?

Ah, the trusty 993. The last air-cooled generation of 911, the last hand-built 911 and, as values have never dipped into the realms of entry-level money, it could be the only classic retaining its factory quality, broadly speaking.

Old rivals, new scores 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S 992 vs. 2019 Audi R8 V10 Type 4S

Old rivals, new scores 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S 992 vs. 2019 Audi R8 V10 Type 4S

Blurring the line between sports car and supercar has always been one of the Audi R8’s special talents. Not only did it blow everybody away with its incredible proportions when it was launched in 2006, Audi’s first attempt at a mid-engined two-seater was easily the best-handling car the company had ever produced. The high-revving 414bhp V8 was an absolute gem and you could even get an open-gated six-speed manual transmission. It’s easy to forget that the R8 was pitched as a rival to a fairly run-of-the-mill Porsche 911.

Not only that, but you get all the creature comforts of a modern day machine, the water-cooled engine, 300bhp and shit loads of charisma too!
