Let’s talk about value: what makes porsches so special?

By Bruce Powers

In the topic of luxury cars, Porsche always leads the conversation, and for good reason: Porsche vehicles boast some of the lowest depreciation rates for cars today. In 2019, the Porsche 911 retains the highest value among all sports cars with a depreciation rate of 37.2 percent — lower than the average of 48 percent for sports cars.

As your Porsche service expert in Huntington, Autowerkes can give you a breakdown of what makes this luxury car brand deservedly special in the eyes of both the consumers and car industry experts.


Seventy percent of Porsches built (ever!) are still on the road. Considering this is a luxury brand, this number says a lot of its reliability and driving performance.

The Porsche 911 was recently hailed by J.D. Power’s 2021 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study as the most dependable and trouble-free car to own. This was the second time in three years that the model took the top spot in this annual study.

Here are some of the qualities that make Porsche cars such a pleasure to drive:

  • They have incredible balance and drives as smooth as silk on the road. Porsche cars have an incredible shock absorption capability: drivers feel like they are one with the car as it glides on asphalt given how well and accurately it responds to the wheel. The experience is like driving on air regardless of the condition of the road.
  • The interiors are very pleasing to the senses. Drivers and passengers will have utmost comfort, pampered with plush leather seats, beautiful wood inlays, and premium-looking metal surfaces and hardware.
  • The newer models boast some of the latest technologies for automobile entertainment, like 3D sound systems, intuitive touch screens for the driver and passengers, Bluetooth connectivity, and more.

A beautiful and unique appearance has always been one of the strongest suits of the Porsche brand. The company’s designers do an impressive job of balancing unique and striking features with timeless appeal. Its classic models, like the 1970’s era Porsche Carrera, are still just as eye-catching today as they were when they first appeared in showrooms.

The forward-extended bonnet and recessed area before the windscreen in the 911 Carrera are examples of the iconic designs that have come out from Porsche’s design team.


What makes Porsche unique as a brand is it puts a lot of effort into helping customers keep their cars on the road. It is clear that for this manufacturer, they want their cars running instead of being kept in a garage. Case in point: Porsche continues to service and provide factory support for its vintage cars. Owners can still find genuine parts for many of its classic models.

The company has kept its customers happy, and it’s unsurprising that it ranks second as the most dependable vehicle brand across the board in the 2021 VDS J.D. Power Study cited above.
