Porsche Cayman GTS - Best track day cars

Sublime handling balance, communicative controls and a stunning engine, the Cayman GTS is a car you’ll want to lap around a track all day.

Price: £59,866 

Sublime handling balance, communicative controls and a stunning engine, the Cayman GTS is a car you’ll want to lap around a track all day. With 15bhp more than a Cayman S, it’s more than quick enough.

The Porsche Cayman GTS is a new range-topping model, offering more power, styling updates and also a stiffer body. We’ve had a chance to drive it in the UK for the first time, so is this now our favourite sports coupe? 

Porsche Cayman GTS review

First, a few notes: the Cayman GTS costs just over £8,000 more than the Cayman S, which gets you a PASM adaptive dampers, limited slip differential and the Sports Chrono pack. Add in a 15bhp power boost and our car’s six-speed manual box, and this feels like the perfect Cayman set-up.

We thought the S was as good as sports cars get, yet this model feels better still. The short-throw gearbox is so accurate that it just seems to fall into gear as soon as you push the clutch. Meanwhile, the steering is so nicely weighted and responsive that you feel comfortable with this car’s limits as soon as you jump in.
