Review

The Porsche Cayman is a joy to drive and, if you go for the GTS version, has a fantastic, sweet-sounding six-cylinder engine to match its superb dynamics. If your budget doesn't stretch to the GTS, the Cayman 2.0-litre is worth considering, but for similar money, we'd take a serious look at the Alpine A110 instead, which is a fabulous alternative.

Trim: S

The S adds 19in alloy wheels and partial-leather seats to the standard Cayman's tally.

Engine: 2.5

This S model gets the more powerful 345bhp 2.5-litre petrol engine that's quick, but full of flats spots and emits a rough, unpleasant, four-cylinder sound. It's the least enjoyable engine in the range.
