Porsche Boxster 2016 set to more expensive than Cayman sister car

Porsche has confirmed that the 2016 Boxster will, for the first time, be more expensive than the Cayman sister car, as the duo receive a significant mid-life update and new four-cylinder turbocharged engines.

The new ranges will be realigned to mirror the 911’s, where convertible models are more expensive by default. Previously, the more performance-focused Cayman was the pricier.

It’s not clear yet whether the Boxster will simply become much more expensive or whether the two models will swap price points, with the Cayman becoming cheaper.

Porsche has set no date for the arrival of downsized engines but says they are definitely coming, with ’equally powerful’ versions for both cars.

Both the Boxster and the Cayman are to be introduced through 2016, with a likely global debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
