Carports can cost anywhere from hundreds of dollars to a few thousand dollars per car. All this actually depends upon the material, the design and the amount of space which the car port would occupy. There are industry standard prices which are fixed. However if you want to know more about carport designs, make sure you contact a reliable carport builder. They can give you a quote for the kind of carport you have in mind.
