The 2020 Porsche Cayman and 2020 Porsche Boxster have both seen price reductions across all models. While entry-level Cayman and Boxster saw a $2900 price cut, bringing them down to $113,100 and $115,900 plus on-road costs respectively, it was the Cayman S and Boxster S variants that saw the greatest reductions.
