Improving the unimprovable? In some ways, you have to feel for the engineers who were tasked in 2016 with creating the Porsche 718 Cayman, a heavily facelifted version of what was already a five-star sports car.

To make matters worse, they had to do it while giving up the sonority of its flat-six engines and instead adopt new turbocharged four-cylinder units; those dreaded emissions and fuel consumption targets demanded it.

The changes didn't stop there. In addition to the engine swap, almost every body panel was changed, while the front suspension and steering were taken from the range-topping 911 Turbo to improve handling and make the Cayman steer more quickly than it did previously.

However, fierce competition comes from the likes of the BMW M2, Audi TT RS and even the Jaguar F-Type Coupé.

Read on over the next few pages to find out how the Cayman stacks up against those rivals, and which version and options you should choose.
