Call it magic, sorcery, whatever, Porsche seems to infuse everything they build with serious driving fun, and their least expensive car easily tops some of the best machines the rest of the world has to offer.  And yes, I mean the Cayman.

I hear you; if you’re a Porsche fan and love the Cayman, you definitely want the GT4 or the Cayman Clubsport.  But for a very reasonable price you can skip the lines, forget the wait, and have most of the fun the GT4 delivers.

The Porsche Cayman has been a great shape from the get go, with a the balanced size that the bigger car has gone away from.

No longer “cute”, the Cayman GTS sits on 20 inch Carrera S wheels for improved cornering, new front and rear treatment, including a matte finish sports exhaust that sounds as good as it looks.

Drop into the driver’s seat, and it’s what we have come to expect from Porsche; no nonsense, no frills, just a workman like space to enjoy yourself.

In the PDK version you get launch mode, but I still love the snick-snick through the gears and if you’re not spending lots of time on the track, the wonderfully precise 6 speed is an absolute joy to drive with just enough pedal offset to remind me of the lost art of heel and toeing (under 30, please Google the heel and toe thing).

Porsche is never going to retire the 911 variant, as the world would lay siege to Stuttgart.  But as prices for the top of the line 911 Turbos are quickly heading into exotic car territory, more people wanting a Porsche are going to be forced into the less expensive world of the Cayman.  In my mind that’s a good thing.  Why should the rich have all the fun.

STATS:

340HP

0-60: 4.3 seconds

top speed: around 175 MPH
