So it’s the basic Porsche Cayman? Yes. The new Porsche 718 Cayman has a price that begins with a three (just) before options. But, now that Porsche’s bread and butter cars are all turbocharged, it still has nearly 300bhp and is good for a 171mph top speed. Power comes from a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine, even smaller than the 2.5-litre four that’s been garnering such criticism in the Cayman S (and drop-top Boxster S). For the noise it makes? Correct. Sound isn’t a critical aspect of a sports car, but it should be blooming high on the agenda. Turn the key in this Cayman and its 2.0-litre’s throbbing idle is like that of an old VW Beetle, or a Subaru Impreza that’s had rather clumsy modifications. Pick the reference most relevant to your experience.
