Ownership cost

What used Porsche Cayman coupe will I get for my budget?

Reckon on spending at least £32,000 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.

How much does it cost to run a Porsche Cayman coupe?

MPG

The 2.0-litre Cayman is the most economical, not surprisingly, with an official WLTP figure of 38.2mpg, and even the more powerful 2.5-litre engines manages 34.9mpg, although if you enjoy the car as much as you should you’ll probably not see anywhere near that in the real world. 

Naturally, the GTS and GT4 won't see figures that are that good, at 25.9mpg and 25.4mpg, respectively. 

CO2 emissions

The CO2 emissions of the 2.0-litre, according to the older NEDC tests, is 168g/km, while the 2.5-litre 186g/km.

Car tax (VED)

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. To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here.

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.
