Porsche Boxster, Porsche Cayman: US prices announced

Porsche Boxster, Porsche Cayman
Porsche has announced the US prices for the 2009 Porsche Cayman and Porsche Boxster.

The new Boxster and Cayman, both of which debuted at the 2008 Los Angeles auto show last November, go on sale here in March, with the Boxster starting at $46,600 and the Boxster S at $56,700. The Cayman starts at $50,300 for the base car and $60,200 for the Cayman S. Those prices represent about a 1.8 percent increase from 2008 Boxster and Cayman prices.

Exterior changes for 2009 include new LED running lights and new taillamps, but more significant to us are the new engines. The now-2.9-liter flat six (up from 2.7) makes 255 hp in the Boxster and 265 hp in the Cayman, and the 3.4-liter in the S versions benefits from the addition of direct injection. The 3.4-liter now delivers 310 hp in the Boxster S and 320 hp in the Cayman S. All four models can be ordered with Porsche’s seven-speed double-clutch PDK gearbox.
