Sportscar aficionados, this one's for you! Recently we brought you a feature on the most iconic BMW models to hit the road, and now we're doing the same for Porsche. So if you've ever wanted to take one of these sleek, powerful four-wheeled beauties out for a spin, read on - and put your favourite at the very top of your lotto 'must-buy' list.
Generally considered to be the most classic of all Porsche models, the 911 Carrera RS is worth an almighty 669% more today than it was just ten short years ago - making it not just a sought-after buy, but a sound investment as well. Built in 1973, the Carrera RS is a faster, more powerful version of its 911S cousin, and is high in demand amongst discerning collectors. With one having recently sold at auction for $1.42 million, the Carrera RS doesn't come cheap - but it does come with envious stares as you drive by.
If you're looking for the superstar of racing Porsches, the 917 is it. Made famous by Steve McQueen in the fast-paced 1971 movie Le Mans, the 917 raced into the history books by winning the championship of the same name not once but twice, taking pole position in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1970 and 1971. With 11 variations of the 917 built to hit the racing track, the 917K eventually emerged as the ultimate victor, conquering the road and winning every major title in the 1970 calendar. If there was ever a Porsche model to give the green light to as a buyer, it would be this one!
The 80s were a great time for music and oversized mohawks, but they were fabulous years for Porsche as well - particularly the year of 1986, when Porsche's first supercar, the 959 was launched. With a limited edition of just 300 produced, the 959 was capable of speeds of up to 195 miles per hour, making it the fastest street-legal car in the world. If you've got the perfect space for one in your luxury garage, you'll need to do a little homework first, as all 300 models sold out immediately, despite their colossal $225,000 price tag.
If the name sounds familiar, that's because it probably is. At $500,000, the Porsche Carrera GT is considered to be the most extreme Porsche model manufactured to date, and one of the most exclusive too. Launched in 2004, the Carrera GT was built as a rare, limited-edition vehicle, and marketed as a car for expert drivers only. Although production on the Carrera GT ceased in 2007, it nevertheless remains one of Porsche's most collectible models to this day.
