Porsche 718 Cayman coupe (2016 - )

The Cayman looks a million dollars and, when it comes to handling and driving fun, sits right at the top of the pile. What’s more, its sublime steering, superb control weights and exceptional ride quality make it a brilliant long-distance GT. The driving position is absolutely spot on, while the cabin oozes style, quality and ergonomic excellence.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The Porsche 718 Cayman is now cheaper than its convertible Boxster cousin, and the standard Cayman is a great deal cheaper – we’re talking approximately five figures - than the more powerful S model. However, you’ll need to bear in mind that the S comes with a lot more kit and has a bigger, better engine that helps it produce tangibly better performance. If you do stick with the standard Cayman, equip it with the optional PDK twin-clutch automatic gearbox, as it gives you very reasonable fuel economy and CO2 emissions, although your consumption will depend largely on how you drive. And let’s be realistic, no one buys a Cayman – even a basic one - to pussyfoot around. At the other end of the scale, the Cayman GT4 is obviously way more expensive, but we’d say its dynamic ability makes it worth every penny and it'll still cost you far less than an entry-level 911. Parts, servicing and insurance are all likely to be costlier than the class averages, but this is offset somewhat by the fact that Porsches only need servicing every two years or 20,000 miles, whichever comes first. Porsches also tend to have excellent resale values.
