Okay, so it’s not a super-comprehensive study that takes into account all the various options, taxes and other purchase-related expenses like car insurance. The main criterion here is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), excluding freight and delivery.
Furthermore, since not all exotic and ultra-high-performance cars are sold across the globe and have readily available pricing information, the comparison focuses on just one model: the new, 641-horsepower Porsche 911 Turbo S.
In Canada, the prestigious German coupe starts at $231,700, which is the equivalent of €150,373—good for first place in the ranking. In fact, the 911 Turbo S is 81 percent cheaper than the global average.
Consider this: in Singapore, customers have to shell out $924,488 SGD or €579,654. It would be like if we were asked to pay $900,400 for ours. But wait, there’s worse. In Argentina, we would have to spend the equivalent of $911,000. You’d think Porsche did that on purpose.
Mexico, the U.K., Jordan and Kuwait round out the top 5 countries where the Porsche 911 Turbo S is the cheapest. The U.S. ranks sixth and Germany is fourteenth.
