What used Porsche Cayman coupe will I get for my budget?
This is the only bad news, or the good news if you already own a Cayman. Few cars hold on to their value as well as a Cayman, so there are few bargains to be had. Reckon on spending at least £37,000 to get behind the wheel of a 718 Cayman. This will buy you a 2016 model with an average mileage for the year. On the whole, sports cars like this don’t tend to accumulate huge mileages, so watch out for those that have. You’ll be looking at the 2.0 version at this price, but up the folding stuff to £40,000 or so, you should find an early S model. Expect to fork out over £50,000 for a GTS 4.0 or around £85,000 for a GT4 version.
Tax for cars registered before April 2017 will be based on CO2 emissions and will be fairly high, while cars registered after that date will pay a flat rate fee. However, all Caymans cost over £40,000 new, therefore are subject to a luxury car supplementary tax. Current fees are £150 a year for the road tax and £325 a year for the supplementary tax.

Insurance and servicing
Insurance groups are high, too, ranging from 44 for the 2.0-litre car up to 49 for the GTS. Servicing will be expensive, and is best carried out by a dedicated Porsche specialist in order to get the best value for money.
