From the Editor…

UP FRONT…  Porsches for the many, not just the few. Perhaps that should be the 911&PW mantra!

We’ve been pulled up for political comment in recent times, but none the less we couldn’t help but modify a populist political slogan of the recent UK General Election for the front cover: ‘Porsches for the many, not just the few.’ Apologies for that cheeky piece of plagiarising, but it does rather sum up the breadth of the Porsche market, as can be witnessed in most issues of 911&PW. Head to the news pages and for the ‘few,’ there is the new GT2 RS, while for the ‘many’ we have our cover star trio of Boxster, Cayman and 911, ideal first time Porsche fodder in the tempting £15k–£25k price range, where many first time Porsche buyers will be looking to park themselves. And this is the new reality of entry-level Porsche ownership

For the ‘many’ we have our cover trio of Boxster, Cayman and 911..

Whereas in previous years we would have been championing the whole gamut of air-cooled 911s alongside the moderns in this price range, the market has shifted, with the classics now out of reach and appealing to a different buyer. But that’s no bad thing in many respects. A modern Porsche is a more useable prospect and, with less money invested, you are less likely to be precious as to how it’s used, too. And there’s choice: Open top motoring from the sublime Boxster, hardcore driver appeal from the focused Cayman and the sheer iconic appeal of the rear-engined 911. Indeed, to quote from another political era, perhaps we’ve never had it so good. Porsches are often seen as elitist and often for the ‘few’, but actually it’s their massive popularity and relative value that puts them in reach of the ‘many’. The people’s sports car, you see!
