Kelley Blue Book (KBB.com) has released its 2013 picks for the Best Resale Value in various vehicle classes and two of the coveted spots have gone to Porsche for both the Cayenne SUV and the Panamera luxury car.
The KBB awards are given every year based on the resale projections of the Kelley Blue Book Official Residual Value Guide, which is the most respected and influential used vehicle pricing guide on the market. Every year, awards are given by KBB to the latest-model vehicles they believe will retain their value best over the first five years of ownership.
Porsche won in the Cayenne and Panamera's respective categories. In addition, the Cayenne was included in the Top 10 cars with Best Resale Value for 2013. That short list was topped by Best Brands Toyota and Lexus, but also included other brands like the Jeep Wrangler. The official list can be viewed here. The 2013 Porsche Cayenne came in #7 on the Top 10 list.
The 2013 Porsche Cayenne is an all-new offering which comes with several power train options and a new S (sport) model which includes a new V8 engine offering more power and torque than the Turbo model.
The 2013 Porsche Panamera is a sport sedan now offered in a new sport wagon with family-friendly seating options in a sporty car configuration. Porsche has offered concepts of the Panamera in hybrid and Sport Tourismo as well.
The two Porsches are well-deserving of their KBB accolades.
