oh....don't get me started on the market. I actually have a separate off-topic thread on that. Thus far, I'm ahead, but was a bit bumpy on the way up (and down) purely because of my emotions and first time investing into stocks.Track Porsche 718 Cayman price trends.

911 and 718 values show to be fairly equal in residuals. Both take a hit for the 2020 & 2019 MY's, which are expected as a new vehicle. After that they level out and or curve up slightly, for the most part they both still over achieve.
See... you pulled me into the topic of value. I stand firm that if you are really concerned about the value you are looking at the wrong items. If yer looking to make money you should have been buying stocks when COVID crippled the market! You'd have enough money made by now to pay cash for whatever you want and never touched what you initially invested. Would almost be like the car was free!
These are cars meant to be driven and WILL depreciate. Even on the linked articles, they all depreciate, but some out perform with LESS depreciation (shown as a positive [email protected]@@% of additional residual) .... still depreciation though.
You are right about values. There's nothing logical about buying a Porsche. The best "value" cars I've ever owned were, EVO IX, 6th gen Camaro SS, and S2K; in that order.
In terms of value, 991.1 Turbo next to my 718 makes absolutely no sense at all. 2X the price of my 718, but if you objectively scored important "enthusiasts'" attributes such as fun factor, steering feel, power, handling, etc., the 718 probably will come out on top.
