In this week’s Top Gear, Chris Harris brought in a 718 Cayman S to briefly compare it to the new Alpine A-110, which is also a mid-engine rear drive sports car. He noted the problem with Alpine is it has a cheaper interior but costs as much as a 718 Caymans S. When he lined the Alpine up against the 718CS for a drag race, he says something like, “Why do we always compare sports cars to the Cayman? Because it’s still the best thing out there.” The camera pulls back to see the two cars launch and the 718CS spank the Alpine on the ¼ mile race. Later, the Stig takes the Alpine to set a lap time on the Top Gear test track which, again, the Apline places lower than the recently tested 718 CS. For the money, you still can’t beat the Cayman. Also, (and SPOILERS if you’ve not seen it)......... you stand a lower risk of catching fire in a Cayman.
