There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Mercedes-Benz E-Class or the Porsche Cayman, it's going to cost you about the same.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Porsche Cayman have similar Destination Charges.
