The five cheapest places to buy a brand new Porsche 911
Recently, we explored the five most expensive places around the world to buy a brand new Porsche 911, with Thailand coming out on top with a 991 Turbo S list price equivalent to £497,577.32.
Of course, after publishing our list, talk of finding the cheapest place to buy a new 911 inevitably followed, with a quick search finding at least 13 places around the globe where a showroom fresh Porsche costs less than the UK.
So, if you fancy getting yourself into a brand new, turbocharged Porsche 991.2 Carrera, here are the five cheapest countries towards which you should direct your business:
5) United Arab Emirates = AED 352,000, equivalent to £63,187.70
The Middle East is known for its love of performance cars, so it was no surprise to find plenty of countries from the region vying for this list. With its low taxes, the UAE just snuck in ahead of Kuwait.
4) Jordan = JOD 67,000, equivalent to £62,261.48
Top of the Middle Eastern pile however was Jordan where a new 2016 Porsche 911 Carrera is nearly 19 per cent cheaper than the equivalent car in the UK. Fuel costs just 67p per litre too!
3) USA = $89,400, equivalent to £58,939.07
Porsche 911s have always sold well in the United States of America and, when you work out the conversion, it suddenly becomes clear why. The same budget in the UK would only just buy you a used Porsche 997 Carrera GTS.
2) Russia = 5,375,000, equivalent to £54,597.91
Like the Middle East, the wealthy in Russia love sports cars and, with a new Porsche 911 costing just 71 per cent of the UK list price, here’s why. However, with a higher luxury car tax to arrive soon, prices may not stay this low for long.
1) Canada = $102,200 equivalent to £51,504.18
We have to admit, this one surprised us. Who would have thought that Canada would sell brand new Porsche 911s for one third less than the UK? We’re booking our flights to the Great White North right now…
