7 sports cars you can drive every day

Porsche Cayman

Price: $56,795
Mileage: 22 mpg city/32 highway/26 combined

Although its model lineup has swelled to include a four-door car and a couple of SUVs, for most of its history, Porsche designed, engineered and built only two-door, two-seat sports cars. Cayman springs from this rich performance heritage. Anchoring the product stable, it's the most affordable Porsche. Fully redesigned for 2014, it scores a bull's-eye for handling, steering response and cabin refinement. With a 275-horsepower, 2.7-liter horizontally opposed V-6 located amidships, Cayman sprints to 60 mph in less than 5.5 seconds when equipped with the seven-speed, driver-shiftable automatic transmission as priced here. The mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout provides outstanding balance. Larger drivers may find the cockpit a bit cramped, but, thanks to the location of the V-6, it does have two trunks: one fore and one aft.
