Thanks for the suggestion. So far the only ones I have seen for sale have been in the £75,000-£110,000 range for that particular model.

 

The 2.7 RS Lightweight is more likely to be £750,000 to £1,000,000. If you find one in a barn with a £100,000 price tag sell the house, the wife, and the kids to get it. The point was really that the further you go back Porsche's either get more expensive because they are rare, or they are basket cases that need a ton of money spent on them. 

 

With 30,000 I guess the best thing to do would be do a lot of research and look for the 1980's or 90's car that will become the next collectible. That way you can hopefully have an angst free five or six years driving it before the prices start to rise. As to what the 'next collectible' could be I don't know enough about Porsche road cars, but it would usually be a model that was top of the range in it's day but has been traded down, and down, until it meets your price. The cars below it in the range will eventually be covered in the same warm glow but it takes much longer. Take for example the 911E, there was a time you couldn't give them away, now you can't afford them, and it's trickle down charisma from the ultimate version, the 911 2.7 RS Lightweight.

I'm sure he could get a 1973 2.7 RS Lightweight for £30,000

 

30k for the RS.

Missing only few parts like body, engine, transmission and seats.:teethhappy:

I would go for a Boxster or a Cayman, the last models with the Flat-6.

 

Although they are not as iconic as Miss 911, they still pack a punch and truly have Porsche DNA: agility and power to provide real driving pleasure, with a beautiful engine sound and a sexy looking body... :-)

 

Cars like that are made to give you joy. It's a bit selfish but if you can buy one without feeding your family white rice for a decade, then go ahead ! You deserve it ! ;-)

 

PS. I can't wait for my kids to grow up, so that I can sell my family car for a more sexy pair of wheels...:P
