Cost & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The already-sold-out Première Edition is (or rather was) noticeably more expensive than an entry-level Porsche Cayman and is only slightly cheaper than the Cayman S. However, it does get loads of standard equipment, including an automatic gearbox, climate control, leather upholstery and lightweight sports seats. Pure and Legende trims have already been announced and bring down the asking price considerably, although they aren't as well equipped.

While the A110 is not particularly cheap to buy, it should be affordable to run. Its small engine and light weight combine to give CO2 emissions of just 138g/km and official fuel economy of 46.3mpg. Both figures beat the Cayman 2.0 and Jaguar F-Type 2.0 by a significant margin.
