Porsche Prices 2018 Models, Including All-New Panamera 4 E-Hybrid

Porsche Canada has announced prices for its 2018 lineup, including an all-new member of the Panamera family, plus returning models that gain new standard features.

Key among the 2018 updates is the addition of a new Panamera 4 E-Hybrid variant that wasn't part of the 2017 Porsche Panamera range. The 4 E-Hybrid is the second-ever Panamera hybrid model with AWD -- after the Turbo S E-Hybrid announced in Geneva -- and will be priced at $113,400 when it arrives in showrooms in fall 2017. It is joined by a returning AWD model, the Panamera 4, whose price holds steady at $102,500.

Next up, the Macan compact crossover gains a navigation system and summer performance tires, for a starting price of $54,100, an increase of $1,400 over the 2017 Porsche Macan; meanwhile, the Cayenne mid-size SUV gains standard summer performance tires, kicking the price for the entry-level trim to $69,600, from the $68,900 price carried by the 2017 Porsche Cayenne.

Next up, the 718 Cayman and 718 Boxster sports cars come in with a $1,200 price bump, taking their starting tags to $62,700 and $65,100 respectively, compared to the 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman and 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster.

In the much-desired 911, a much-desired heated steering wheel is now part of the standard equipment list in the coupe and Targa models, which contributes to a price increase of $2,200 over the 2017 Porsche 911, for a $104,000 bottom line.

Porsche says its 2018 models will begin arriving in Canada this summer.
