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: GT4

The GT4 is the ultimate track-orientated edition of the Cayman, adding bigger brakes, a sports exhaust, the Sports Chrono Package, 20in alloy wheels and bespoke suspension – with PASM adaptive dampers and a 30mm reduction in ride height. You also get a bunch of styling add-ons inside and out, including a large rear spoiler.

Engine: 4.0

The same glorious-sounding, naturally aspirated, flat-six 4.0-litre engine as the GT4 but detuned to 394bhp, which will get you from 0-62mph in a rapid 4.5sec. But as much as the performance is the engines smoothness and wonderful power delivery, which lets you build speed from low revs in sixth gear, or use all the near-8000rpm rev range for a true sports car experience. The six-speed manual gearbox is also a delight.
