    My car

    My last car was a Porsche Boxster S, but this is a class above.

    The handling is much firmer, and the cabin less noisy than the Boxter, which is handy when talking (hands-free, no less) on the phone. Boot and bonnet space is the same as the Boxter; you can fit a large amount into them.

    There's one downside - having suffered a puncture last night, there's no spare wheel. You have to be low-loaded to a garage to have the wheel fixed. It's more of a nuisance than anything.

    This has not jaded my view, and I will always get that feeling of 'Wow... this is my car'. Fantastic!

    My car

    The Cayman S is the best practical sports car I have driven.

    The acceleration from a standing start and through the gears is verging on supercar performance. The handling is phenomenal due to the mid-mounted engine and perfect weight distribution.

    I believe the Cayman S is better than the 911 (997). It is more practical, more comfortable to drive, more fun to drive and £12,000 cheaper for the basic model. The only difference is that the Cayman S is slower from a standing start - however, it's still blisteringly quick.

    The gearbox and clutch are smooth and easily used, and the car generally feels more solid than the 911 and obviously more solid than the Boxster due to the solid roof.

    This is the best value for money Porsche you can buy. It's an excellent every-day, practical, grin-enducing sports car. I love it.

    My car

    This is an excellent car with a wonderful cabin compared to a sports car. Even though its HP is not as strong as its ferrari rivals, it has excellent control and acceleration.
