An owner justifies why Porsche’s cars are over-priced in India

Some of Porsche’s offerings are even higher priced than its competitors from its Mercedes-Benz, Audi & BMW.

BHPian The Rainmaker recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Just reviving an old thread but being a Porsche owner, couldn’t hold myself back. There are a few things to consider. I’ll list them category wise & pointwise for everyone based on my first-hand experience:

Porsche Vehicle Price:

Porsche Service Costs:


Porsche has an image to carry forward and they’re more into the Performance luxury segment than just Luxury, although in the last decade or so they did come out with Panamera, Cayenne, and now Macan but their roots have always been in Racing, Motorsports and Competitive Championships. Having experienced most of these vehicles personally, I would say if they have something special to offer, they might as well charge a justified premium for it but within reason, of course

Here’s what BHPian 316kmph had to say on the matter:

Porsche’s are priced competitively for the un-optioned versions, given that they are CBUs compared to JLR, Lexus and the likes. However, unlike elsewhere in the world, the options are not bundled into reasonably (relatively speaking!) priced packages and one is forced to individually pick ridiculously priced options. IIRC charge Rs 10-12 lakh for the top seat (sports, ventilated 18-way power), or 3.5 lakh for a 360-degree camera!! Once you keep ticking the desirable option checkboxes, it’s so easy to add 30, 40, or even 50 lakh of options and that makes them overpriced!
