It’s hard to put a price on near bliss but Porsche has a ballpark figure at least.
This week, the automaker announced that its 2021 Porsche 718 Cayman and 2021 Porsche 718 Boxster convertible will cost $61,250 and $63,350 respectively, before options but after mandatory destination charges. That’s a $2,400 increase over the base price for 2020 models.
