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.get the best price
Entry-level Caymans comes with very little as standard. You get air-con, 18in alloy wheels, Xenon headlights, Alcantara seat trim, automatic lights, an eight-speaker/ 150-watt stereo, and a 7.0in infotainment screen with sat-nav, Apple CarPlay, a DAB radio and Bluetooth. Climate control, heated seats, parking sensors and cruise control are all on the options list.
Entry-level Caymans comes with a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine making 296bhp. That's enough for 0-62mph in as little as 4.7sec (with a PDK automatic gearbox fitted) and it revs out cleanly, but is really into its stride by 3000rpm. It's smoother than the 2.5-litre Cayman S, but still sounds quite unappealing. It's worth looking at because the Cayman package is so good, but for the money we'd take a serious look at the lovely Alpine A110 instead.
