Over the next year or so you are going to be partying like it is err 1996. Yep, you can’t move for 90s stars trying to resurrect their careers (coughs, Noel Gallagher, The Spice Girls) and then there are lot of bands who take at least some of their cues from Brit Pop – stand forward Jake Bugg.

Apparently, according to there has been a surge in demand for the decade’s coolest aspirational cars. So here are five of the most desirable. Personally give me one of these any day.

Porsche’s first road vehicle to be originally designed as a roadster since the 550 Spyder, the Boxster launched in 1996 and was positioned as one of the first affordable luxury sports cars – available at the time for just £35,000. What’s even more remarkable is that you can get your hands on a 1990s Porsche Boxster for £5,000! The car was extremely popular at the time, picking up countless end of year awards and winning several celebrity admirers including Prince Naseem Hamed and Bros’ Luke Goss. Today celebs such as Robert Pattinson, One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson and Ashley Tisdale still favour the classic Boxster.
