Australian pricing…drop two cylinders, up the pricing. Porsche only knows one way…

The 718 Boxster and Boxster S models will be priced from $113,100 and $143,400 respectively, both plus on-road costs.

These figures represent price increases of $8400 and $12,300 respectively.

AUD dropping like a stone so no choice but to hike price.

No doubt they will be fantastic, however I feel very saddened by this.

being entry level turbo cars, in 5-10 years these things will be like WRX's. Purchased by those who cant afford a new one. overboosted and tackily modified to make them faster on paper.

I guess the turbo thing is progress, but I only like it on top end models where Turbo's make them even faster.  (yes I get that these are faster than 981's)

EDIT - I have just realised what they're doing with pricing.
Porsche announced they were flipping the pricing (finally) to reflect every other car in the world. i.e. the roadster will cost more than the coupe.
therefore the 718 boxster are up by $8400 and $13200 respectively.
when the cayman arrives, it will be priced below the boxster, probably around $103k for the base car and $133k for the S.
The other thing I remember reading is that power and torque will be the same across equivalent boxster and cayman models for the first time.

BUT….

you could argue the boxster should have started at 103k and the coupe should have been priced under that...
