The Porsche 718 model is a car you can enjoy and have fun driving. You can still get the thrill of driving without having that worry of losing your license. It’s a comfy ride, has classy interior and a practically sized boot, which for a sports car is a winner. These contribute to making it all that bit more compelling. It’s half the price of the 911 but it’s not ‘the poor man’s choice’ as people have called it. This brand new award shows it couldn’t be further from the truth. It’s been said that in some ways it’s better than the Porsche flagship.

The Cayman is fast enough to be thrilling without it being daunting to others on the road. The entry-level 2.0 litre version is meant to be all you need. By adding rear parking sensors, a DAB radio and a sat-nav you will be ready to go. This car will make you want to get up in the morning, perfect for the country drive or even on the motorway. It’s brilliant value for money too, under £50,000.

The four-cylinder engine may not have the sound the old flat six did, but the newfound turbocharged punch is sufficient in comparison. You can see why the Cayman won its title.
