  • What year porsche 911 turbo would be best/cheapest to get?

Those Porsches are going to be a nightmare to maintain, and are much more unreliable than the newer ones. So while you might be able to afford to buy the car, can you afford to maintain it?

The best is not the cheapest. Never is. The best is 1989 with the 5 speed. Edit: Actually, people said the 1993 turbo is the best of the air-cool motors. still prefer the 89

Don't worry about the miles, look at the condition. These are very 'qwerky' cars and need someone who understands them to maintain them. A 20-30yr old car is likely to have had loads of work done and the question is the 'quality' of the work done. Rust is the first thing to look for. A mid 80's 911 has no Power steering, no ABS brakes and no traction control. They are noisy, likely to rattle, the heaters have a mind of their own, vision through the mirrors is terrible and they are a pig to park. On the plus side, a nice one should slowly appreciate in value and - In spite of what I said above.........They are just Ammmmmmmazing to drive !

Oh, you want a fantasy car. There is no such thing as a cheap 911 Turbo Porsche without too many miles on it. NO matter what year turbo you get, the car will not be cheap to maintain. Air cooled 911's carry much more value than the 996 and up years which are water cooled, so you probably can't afford it anyway.
