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, don't worry: the Cayman 2.0-litre is a fine alternative that still handles superbly, it just doesn't sound as sweet. The Alpine A110 is a seriously good alternative to the Cayman – it's not as fast around a track but great fun on the road.

get the best price

The GTS adds bigger brakes, a sports exhaust, the Sports Chrono Package, PASM adaptive dampers with 20mm lower suspension and 20in alloy wheels. You also get a bunch of styling add-ons inside and out.

The GT4's 414bhp means plenty of performance to get you from 0-62mph in just 4.4sec, but the best thing is the glorious-sounding, naturally aspirated, flat-six 4.0-litre engine and slick six-speed manual gearbox. The only negative is the GTS is almost as good, more readily available and cheaper.
