Kenya has grown tremendously over the past few decades. There was a time when you spoke about Ferraris and Lamborghinis people had their theory of why it is not sold in Kenya. The only main reason was there was no demand. Yes they have not opened up dealerships yet but I am seeing a positive future. We already have seen some lucky few who have brought their own here.
The middle class is increasing and demand for cars is also increasing. The government put high duty on older car models, Kenyans are now purchasing brand new cars. With that more and more dealerships are opening here. Recently Volkswagen Group said they will open a plant in Kenya which we already have a General Motors one in Kenya. With that it will be cheaper owning a Volkswagen compared to before.
We have had the normal saloon and SUVs on the roads for decades, now demand for sports and supercars in the country has risen. Here are some cars you can buy here in Kenya from their dealerships:
Porsche Cayman and Boxter
They have been in production since 1996. They are a mid-engined two seater sport compact vehicles. The Cayman is a hard top and the Boxster is a sof top. Base price for the vehicles is 78,924 US$ ( Ksh 7,892,240)
It is the oldest sports car in production from Porsche since 1963. It has its roots from the Volkswagen beetle. It is a 2 door high performance sports. It can come with 4 seats or 2 seats. There is the Carrera, Targa, Turbo and the GT3. The base price of the vehicle is 141,693 US$ (Ksh 14,169,300)
Jaguar F Type
The F type is a new sports car from Jaguar that statred sales in Kenya in 2014. It is a two seat sports car which is based from it's predecessor the XK and the iconic E Type. Base price of the vehicle is Ksh 14 million.
Ford Mustang 2016
New to the market is the Ford Mustang. Before 2015, if you wanted a left hand drive Mustang, there was no chance of getting it from Ford. Now due to high demand in the UK and some African countries they made a right hand drive one. It took time to arrive in Kenya, was launched in October and many petrol heads went crazy. The Mustang has been in production since March 1964 and is one of the most famous muscle cars from America. It is a two door and four seats sports car. If you have about Ksh 9 million you can be one of the lucky few to own the first versions of the car in Kenya
