If you’re looking for ‘bang for your buck’, Porsche probably isn’t going to be your brand. You pay a lot for Porsches compared to equivalent vehicles from other brands, but on the other hand you do get a that badge. How much value that brings is naturally up to you. You could argue that it is worth it in many cases, but sometimes the numbers don’t lie.
If you want to start entry level, the 718 chassis is going to be launching point in the low $60,000 range; the base 911 is $40,000 more. However, buying a 718 for that $60,000 and change is nearly impossible given the options and how quickly they add up, and the dealer probably won’t order you one unless you are the best customer they have. The solution? Looks in the used market and hope something turns up. That is what we have today in a 2019 Cayman that had an MSRP of $73,000. Three years and 20,000 miles later? Well, I bet the used car discount isn’t going to seem as much as you’d think.

The math works out to about $12,000 in options here, but only a $5,000 discount off of the sticker price. Would you trade 20,000 miles for $5,000? I don’t know if that is a great deal. This seems to be an example of really strong prices for all used cars right now, even the lowly base 718 Cayman. I’m sure that doesn’t help as it is at a Porsche dealer as well, and they certainly aren’t begging people to buy cars. I think you have to love this fairly basic spec with a few goodies for it to make sense for you, but the majority of us? Probably a quick pass. Your thoughts?
