    Autocar: "New entry-level Porsche revealed"

    http://www.autocar.co.uk/News/NewsArticle/Porsche/244381/

    For some time, I've wondered just how different production costs are between the 987 and 997, and whether or not the highest-end 997 models cost all that much more to produce that the "regular" 997.

    Profit margins are reputedly a lot higher with 997's than 987's. Draw your own conclusions Smiley

    I assume that within the 987 range profits are also much higher on Cayman than Boxster as it is normally a lot cheaper to produce a tin-top than an equivalent soft top. Yet it's the Cayman that has the price premium. Smiley

     Uhh yeah. Conclusions drawn. ...That's what I thought.   With mass production methods now commonplace amongst mainstream luxury brands, the idea also makes me want not to ever pay "full" price for an 'exotic' car.

    Not sure regarding 9X7, but W.W. once mentioned in an interview that for the 9X6 models the difference in production costs was 7%.
