Porsche Cayman GTS

Let’s not beat around the bush: Β£59,866 is a lot of money for the entry-level Porsche. However, the GTS does make more financial sense that you might at first think.

The premium over the 718 Cayman S is around Β£8000 but, as is the way with GTS models, it would cost more to option the additional parts yourself. And what’s more, you wouldn’t get the small power increase or the more progressive power curve on an optioned-up S.

Factor in that the GTS is also one of the best handling sports cars for less than Β£100,000 and it’s hard to conclude anything other than that it's is all the sports car you’d ever need.
