    Motorway reveals a rise in value of luxury used-cars since the start of 2022

    Motorway has seen a rise in luxury used-cars retaining and growing in value, with many selling for more than the cost of a new model. According to 2022 sales data from the used-car marketplace, Porsche tops the list of best investment makes, closely followed by Bentley and Audi.

    Whilst previously a new car would lose value once driven off the forecourt, the same may no longer apply for a number of luxury makes and models. In June this year, a Porsche 911 Turbo S sold for £33,056 more than a new car of the same model, delivering a 20% return on the owner’s investment. The Porsche Taycan Turbo S is also retaining its value, with one owner recently selling for 4% more than a new model. 

    The ongoing shortage of semiconductors and other parts has caused delays for manufacturers bringing new cars to market. Now, it’s not uncommon for wait times of 12 to 24 months for high-end cars such as a new Porsche, meaning car dealers are turning to the used car market to find high quality, low mileage cars for their customers.

    Alex Buttle, co-founder of online used-car marketplace Motorway said: “Over the last six months, we’ve seen a marked increase in luxury cars achieving unprecedented prices on our platform. It’s a seller’s market, with many luxury cars selling for not far off, or more, than their original retail price when sold as new.”
