The 2013 Porsche 991 Cabrio will be unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show next January but the Dutch prices of the open version of the sixth generation Porsche 911 have leaked.
It should be noticed that the Dutch government applies two kind of tax on a vehicle. The first being the regular sales tax of 19 precent, and the second an additional luxury tax called BPM. This luxury tax is based on the net value of the vehicle, after which a financial compensation (both positive and negative) is applied, based on the CO2 emission of the vehicle. Due to the BPM cars are relatively expensive in the Netherlands compared to other countries, for example Germany where only the 19% sales tax is added to a car.

The Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet will be listed in the range of € 115,200, whereas the Carrera S Coupe is listed for € 102,436. Assumable the PDK will offered for an additional € 400.
