A friend of mine is intending to buy a new Porsche 911 Carrera 2013 and was checking the prices of all GCC countries to decide whether he should buy it from Kuwait or ship it from another GCC country in case the warranty will be valid (new car). Interestingly, Porsche website provide the prices of all their car models for all GCC countries so we decided to make a table to compare the prices for Porsche Boxter S, Cayman S, 911 Carrera, 911 Carrera S, 911 Carrera 4S, Panamera and Cayenne. I remember I’ve done this before but my friend wanted to re-check the prices to see if things have changed.
What we did is that we used the latest conversion rates to convert the other GCC currencies and we found that Kuwait has the highest prices for all models, the average prices difference was around KD800. This makes me ask the questions; Why Kuwait has the highest prices compared to all other GCC countries? Does Kuwait Porsche Center provide better service? Longer warranty? Cheaper maintenance? And most importantly are the prices of other cars makers(Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, Toyota, BMW, Ferrari, Nissan, Honda, Lexus, Ford…etc.) are also more expensive in Kuwait?
The conversion rates below were obtained from NBK online and Porsche prices were obtained from official Porsche website, also bear in mind that I’m not sure if these prices were updated from Porsche. Check below links.
