Porsches have always been an enthusiast’s car. The marque’s core foundations of precision, attention detail and market leading performance have remained constant from Ferdinand Porsche’s first creation, the 356.
From their inception, Porsche had cooled their engines with air, creating an unmistakable sound to their engines that set them out from the crowd. But in 1997, with the introduction of the Porsche 996 911, the company moved towards water-cooled motors, heralding a new breed of car and the end of an era in Porsche’s history.
Ever since this change, air-cooled models of the 911 have remained highly cherished and have been appreciating steadily throughout the years.
However since 2010, almost every air-cooled Porsche has appreciated rapidly, causing increasing demand due to the vehicles being seen as investment pieces, this only drove the market higher and this has continued to the present day.
Good news for car importers, the pound was also growing stronger off the back of the recession compared to the euro, allowing traders to benefit by importing good examples of air-cooled Porsches and selling them for a profit to people wanting the experience of a classic Porsche in the UK. Importers have also looked further afield to Asia, with low mileage examples of limited run production models being easier to source on some occasions, such a the Porsche 964 911 Carrera RS.
