  1. Depending on the Porsche, a lot of specialist lenders will base their quote on the residule value of the car, after say four years. That way you can get into a £60k car for for a lot lower monthly repayments, with the balancing figure of say £20k at the end of the deal. This balancing figure is hopefully less than the trade in value of the car, so you have a deposit going forward. Magnitude have good reports and do a lot of work with the "Youtube" generation !
