But not by much.
Porsche builds some seriously insane supercars, but its great success story remains its entry-level sportsters, the 718 Boxster, and its hardtop sibling the 718 Cayman. While China has seen the introduction of a low-cost 'entry-level' 718 Spyder, the US market will see these entertaining machines get a mild price increase for 2022, ranging from $600 to $2,500, as well as the introduction of two new exterior paint colors. Porsche has opened orders for the 2022 model year and expects these cars to arrive in the US this fall.
Porsche has announced that the Cayman will start at $63,950, while the Boxster will sell for $61,850. These prices are for the base-model cars that are powered by the 300-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter flat-four engine and six-speed manual transmission. The more powerful S models, powered by a 2.5-liter flat-four engine and producing 350 hp will retail for $73,850 for the Cayman, and $75,950 for the Boxster. That represents a minor price increase of $600 over 2021 models. The less powerful T model Cayman will go for $70,950, while the Boxster will sell for $73,050 which is a $700 increase over 2021 models.
The high-performance GTS 4.0 model which is powered by our favorite naturally-aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine gets a $600 price increase, and starts at $88,750 for the Cayman, while the Boxster GTS 4.0 goes for $90,850. The Boxster 25th Anniversary model sees the biggest increase at $2,500 for a total price of $102,450. The hardcore Cayman GT4 now costs $102,550, and the 718 Spyder rings in at $99,650. The 2022 models will be offered with two new exterior colors, namely Shark Blue, which is shared with the awesome 911 GT3, and Frozenberry Metallic. Other options for 2022 include personalized floor mats and a leather pouch for the owner's manual. These minor price increases won't keep us away from dealerships.
