What alternatives should I consider to a used Porsche Cayman coupe?

It’s a tricky question to answer because the Porsche Cayman is a really complete sports car and few rivals get close to bettering its blend of abilities. The closest would be the Audi TT, as it is a prestige coupé with the practicality of a hatchback, except the Audi’s boot doesn’t have to share space with an engine. You would need to find one with either a V6 petrol, a TTS or a TT RS for a similar or better performance than the Cayman, as regular versions aren’t really a match.

The Nissan 370Z is a cheaper alternative. It doesn’t drive anywhere near as well as the Porsche, or even the Audi for that matter. But it does have a thumping 3.7-litre V6 and plenty of equipment for the money.
