Verdict

Final thoughts and pick of the range

The engine is gruff, but the handling is as sweet as ever. Very few sports cars are this complete

This would be a lot easier if Alpine hadn’t made a comeback. Even taking the lost character of those two absent cylinders into account, the Cayman remains a fantastic sports car with a real breadth of ability. If you never need back seats – and don’t often carry big things – it’s all the car you’ll ever need.

Alas, the A110 is a rather prickly thorn in the 718’s side because it makes much more sense of having a downsized engine thanks to being even lighter on its feet than a Cayman. If you don’t dare take the plunge on a smaller, more specialist car sold from the fancier corner of a Renault dealer, though, this Porsche really is a brilliant thing. Just ever so slightly less brilliant than before.
