You will naturally have a soft spot for Porsche. If you are a luxury car lover, you’ll already be familiar with the popularity that Porsche have built upon their exceptional designs and top-end engineering. From tractors to the Boxster, the Porsche identity is one that encompasses prestige and distinction on every level.

You may be happy to know that I am not going to talk about their contribution to the agricultural machinery market (although if I were looking for a used Porsche for under £10,000 I would seriously think about buying a vintage Porsche tractor, along with a field, just to enjoy hurtling about at 20mph). But the Good Life dream will have to wait a bit longer, because there hasn’t ever been a better time to invest in a luxurious sports car. With the recent economic downturn, the price of a second hand Porsche is now an attractive possibility for a lot of folks than previously.
The used Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet which I took out for a spin one sunny day in June was ideally suited to the weather. With the roof down and the cheeky handling making it a joy to be in the driving seat, it was easy to wonder whether it was a one-climate wonder. Purring through town (it’s only fair to let everybody gawp at such a sterling motor), I was aware of heads turning. In a new or used Porsche you’ll definitely be looked at, you may even get small children waving and the occasional thumbs up from other drivers. It’s not a brand for the wallflower.

Looking for a family car that will fit a month’s shopping in the boot, I must advise that you look somewhere else. The charisma of the 911 Turbo Cabriolet lies in its sense of freedom, the release from restriction that comes with having the wind in your hair and a well responsive car under your control. Being lucky enough to live in a semi-rural area, it was a short jump from the town centre to quiet country roads. And that is where the 911 really came alive. I sensed that I could drive it all day long, but sadly it had to be returned to the auto dealer before they closed. Having experienced the difficulties and benefits of taking it through different environments, I was satisfied that even the greyest, most miserable day wouldn’t impact the little used Porsche’s spirit.

It really is not the car for everyone, and may be seen as an indulgence. But the used Porsche that I had in my greedy little paws for a few hours that day made driving feel like a pleasure rather than a chore, and I personally view such expense as an investment rather than a frivolity. If you are in the position to take possession of a luxury sports vehicle, a used Porsche is definitely worth looking into. As with any car, look for an approved used Porsche dealer, and if you do love a model take it for a in depth test-drive before buying.

It goes without saying that any new Porsche is a hefty investment that requires regular care. Without special protection and treatment of both external and internal finishes, the investment will too early and significantly decline requiring a full reconditioning service or a big ding at trade-in time. One of the most over-looked ways Porsche owners can keep their sports vehicle or SUV in pristine condition is frequent use of a car cover, but what is the best car cover to use?
Ready-Fit Vs. Custom Fit
According to my personal experience with ready-fit and factory covers, I highly recommend both Coverking and Covercraft, the two most respected and recognized brands in covers. I appreciate that they are made here in the USA using the finest fabrics and precision manufacturing. Additionally, they are always a perfect fit for your exact Porsche (and exterior factory accessories), and that’s guaranteed. The fit and finish highlights the sleek lines of your vehicle, sure enough, but the true value of the snug fit is preventing scratching on windy days. The covers fit so beautifully they don’t move.
Factrory Vs. Custom Fit
Your local Porsche car dealer can order a plant stamped Porsche car cover for you, but take it from me, it’s not your best option. The quality level is more due to the single-layer fabric, not the construction (anything Porsche puts its name on is top quality construction). I suppose if UV protection and dust are your only concerns, the dealer offering will do the job very well, but it would not be my personal choice. You have to dial-in the best fabric for your environment and use circumstances.
Let Porsche build world-class SUVs and sports cars, because a Covercraft or Coverking car cover has no substitute. What really astounds me is the wide range of outdoor and indoor fabrics. Plus, most of the fabrics are offered in two or more colors. It seems like custom car covers have almost as many options and variations as a new Panamera. You have to love that!
The Perfect “Car Guy” Gift
Here is a thought for you. Car covers make amazing gifts, and not just for the holidays, either. Trust me on this one, ladies, if the man in your life drives a Cayman, Boxster, Panamera, Porsche 911, or even any of the awesome Cayenne SUVs, he’ll do cartwheels over a custom-fit cover for his pride and joy. I know, because I received a 911 car cover as a gift more than a decade ago and I still have it today! Save the ties and sweaters for stocking stuffers. What a car guy wants is a gift that acknowledges his love of cars.
Here is an important tip. If you are buying a holiday gift, Father’s Day present, or even a thoughtful Birthday gift, you’ll need to determine just how he uses and parks his Porsche. For instance, if he wipes it down every day after driving it and puts it safely in the car port, then he’s an indoor car cover guy. Remember that storage space in a sports vehicle is also a consideration. If he doesn’t have a garage, a bulky outdoor cover could be an issue for him. If he really does need an outdoor use cover, choose one of the lighter fabrics made for outdoor and indoor use. Oh, also keep in mind some of the little extras, like a locking cable.
