Porsche Cars Australia has announced a range of spec upgrades — and price increases — across its Boxster, Cayman, 911 and Panamera ranges as part of their respective model year 2015 updates, production of which will commence in Germany this month.  

The price increases, which range between $1300 for PDK versions of the new hardcore Boxster and Cayman GTS through to $11,700 on top of the Panamera Diesel price, are offset by the addition of standard equipment and, in the case of the Panamera Diesel, a punchier new engine. 

The only members of Porsche’s six-model local range not affected by the MY15 tweaks are the newly-launched Macan compact SUV and its larger Cayenne sibling, which will be replaced by an updated model by year’s end — shortly after its world premiere at the Paris motor show in October.

Pricing on the Boxster and Cayman twins has grown by between $1300 and $2900, though Porsche has added a standard tyre pressure monitor. 

The 911 range climbs between $1500 (Cabriolet variants), $2600 (Carrera Coupe variants) and between $4100 and $8100 (hard- and soft-topped Turbo models). The track-ready GT3 is unchanged at $294,100 plus on-road costs. 

Countering these somewhat is the addition of standard seat heating and tyre pressure monitor, plus a Porsche Dynamic Lighting system on all 911 Carrera 2, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S Targa 4 and Targa 4S models.

Finally, the Panamera range grows by between $1500 (Turbo and Turbo S), all the way up to $11,700 for the Diesel — the latter in return for a new 221kW/650Nm 3.0-litre turbo-diesel engine with 37kW/100Nm more than its predecessor.

Beyond the more potent new diesel engine, all models get a tyre pressure monitor and Porsche’s Entry and Drive remote entry and permanent valet key. Turbo and Turbo S variants get Lane Change Assist, while the Panamera, Panamera Diesel and Panamera 4 get a Porsche Dynamic Lighting System. 

The sequence of price increases come just over one year after Porsche’s local arm slashed pricing across most models by between $5500 and $36,300. As a result, the company shifted a record-breaking 1905 units in 2013 (up 39 per cent on the previous year). 

Porsche sales are up a further 44 per cent this year, while incremental sales for the new Macan will see the company smash its all-time record this year, with a projection of more than 3000 units.
