    None of the manufacturers listed. Try a Honda or Japanese in general if you want high resale value.

    Porsche if you want high end with good resale. (BMW) M cars also have better resale generally. AMG has the worst.

      Keep in mind this is resale as a % of msrp, not raw $. A 120k Porsche that resells for 70k after 5 years is “doing better” than a 30k Honda that resells for 15k after 5 years, but you still “lost” 50k on the Porsche vs 15k on the Honda.

      But still Porsche sportcars depreciates really slower than their ///M, AMG and Audi counterparts. The 911 in particular and sought-after Boxster and Cayman.

      I'm not so familiar with the Macan ans Cayenne but from my understanding their depreciate more like normal cars in the segment.

      ^thats true. I think it’s still somewhat above the market but much closer versus the 911/718

      Also as I'm currently driving my second Porsche, another important thing to note is how fucking reliable these things are compared to a BMW, Merc or Audi.

      These are really built to drive the shit out of them and will not break a sweat. Also way tell electronic gimmicks that will fail.

    German trash is still German trash after 5 years. If you buy trash, it will be worth trash. Porsche is the only German car if you are interested in something that is not trash in 5 years. Otherwise, you are buying new trash that will become old trash.

    • Then don't worry about resell if you want Europeans, they break down and have low resell like a piece of shit anyways.

    Sedans in general depreciate like crazy nowadays.

      That’s more a factor of lower gas prices driving demand toward bigger vehicles. When gas prices go up again, sedan depreciation will go down and SUVs will depreciate faster. They go up and down so it’s not an easy thing to time. Better to just buy what suits you.
