Cost of Ownership: Boxster S Vs. 911

Does anybody know the relative, post-purchase, cost of ownership of a Boxster S Vs. 911; this assuming they are of same or similar age and # of miles?

Thx

Off the top of my head I'd say maintenance costs are about the same. However I'd also guess that total cost of ownership is actually less for a 911 due to the higher resale value that the 911 has in comparison to how fast the Boxster depreciates. The latter isn't as much of a factor if you're going to hang on to your car for a very extended period

Beware that the post-purchase cost of ownership can skyrocket for a 911 (especially a turbo) if you plan on performance mods

Performance modifications become contagious and you (at least I) can't get enough
