Porsche 718 Cayman review

£44,790 - £75,348
Published: 28 Nov 2019


What should I be paying?

For all our whining about the new engine, this will still be a great car to own. We loved the one that lived in the Top Gear Garage in early 2018 once we’d made our peace with the noise. The Cayman remains solidly built, talented at both long distance drudgery and B-road blasting and it continues to outdo its rivals practically thanks to two large luggage compartments – front and rear – which completely embarrass a BMW Z4, Jaguar F-Type or Alpine A110 when it comes to packing for a big road trip.

On paper, fuel economy has improved markedly, but in reality, it’s marginal – you’ll probably average 30mpg versus 28mpg, although the CO2 cut over the old 6cyl does make this a more tax-friendly option. If big mpg and small CO2 numbers are your bag, though, it’s time to bring up that awkward little Alpine again. It’s really shaken up the class and makes much more sense of a turbo four than its myriad rivals.
