Lightbulb My car of the day, Porsche 718 Cayman.

The original Cayman launched in 2005 was a genuine sports car, even for those of you who couldn't afford a 911. It had that wonderful sweet sounding straight six engine that was the heart and soul of the car. But now, sadly in an ever growing trend of down sized turbo engines; the Cayman gets a new 2.0 litre flat four on the basic Cayman. The Cayman S and GTS get the 2.5 litre engine, the Cayman's small proportions do make it a great fit for UK roads. The pick of the Cayman range would be the GTS when fitted with a six speed manual, 350 BHP, a torque - vectoring diff and adaptive dampers all as standard. 0-60 is timed at 4.2 when mated to the PDK gearbox and reaches 171 MPH. Porsche have updated the interior with a new infotainment system and new LED lighting. The styling has had a subtle update with the chassis also been revised. The Cayman will start at £42,895 but tick those options and some are essential then the price will sky rocket.

Like it?

Very nice colour
The back end just looks a little unfinished to me

Beautiful car and for normal enthusiastic but legal driving on UK roads the basic model is brilliant and all you need. I think you only need to go for the GTS or up-spec'd S version if you're into track days. For normal driving though, the standard seats and PDK are the best bet, in my view.

Huge backward step in moving to a four pot - much rather search out a low mileage decent spec earlier model with the proper engine in it

Having recently moved from a 6 to a 4 pot, have to admit it feels like a stepdown, yes its powerful and yes its efficient but its so dull to listen to in comparison

Starting to warm to porsches. I like that though I do agree with one of the above statements in that the back end just looks overly smooth and unfinished.
