The Porsche 718 Cayman is the cheapest model in the prestigious German brand’s line-up, but it’s also one of the best.
A two-seater sports car with a mid-engined layout, it handles brilliantly, is classy inside and has excellent manual and automatic gearboxes. A 295bhp 2.0-litre engine powers the cheapest version, whereas the range-topping ‘S’ model gets a 345bhp 2.5-litre to endow it with near-911 levels of performance.
The Cayman also has a well-built and nicely designed interior, with plenty of space inside and two separate boots – one in the front and one in the back – so it’s even fairly practical.
However, the Cayman faces some fierce competition from the likes of the BMW M2, Audi TT RS and even Jaguar F-Type Coupe. Read on over the next few pages to find out how the Porsche Cayman stacks up against those rivals, along with our thoughts on which version you should choose.
