It’s not easy to compare the 2015 Porsche Cayman vs. the 2015 Lotus Evora side by side, because each vehicle offers several different model choices and upgrades. However, both are leaders in the sub-$100,000 sports car category, so it is important to take note of each car’s features. While the Evora offers many benefits, the Cayman edges it out in terms of value for additional features and performance.


Most buyers will be comparing the more standard Lotus Evora S to the Porsche Cayman GTS, and these two models are very similar indeed. While the Evora and Cayman are neck-and-neck in terms of speed and horsepower, the Cayman wins when it comes to 0-60 acceleration, zipping up to speed in 4.1 seconds when compared to the Evora S’s 4.4 seconds. Even the Evora 400 merely matches this acceleration time. In addition, the Cayman offers better gas mileage, giving you 21 mpg for your leisurely Sunday afternoon city drive, compared to the Evora’s fuel efficiency of 19 mpg. And, of course, don’t forget that the Cayman is available in a 7-speed automatic transmission, offering smoother gear switches than the Evora’s 6-speed transmission offering.

Fun and Features

While you might use your sports car for the occasional commute, you didn’t buy it to be practical, which is why the Cayman simply offers more to drivers who want all the extras. Without adding an exorbitant amount onto the base price, Porsche owners can add on the following features for the vehicle, which aren’t available on the Lotus Evora:

  • Burmester high-end audio system, providing over 800 watts of sound through 12 speakers, including a subwoofer
  • Exclusive sound symposers to give you extra volume when you hit the sport exhaust button
  • Alacantara leather sports seats and wrapped steering wheel, with customizable interior package options
  • An intuitive and sleek design that is unique and offers a state-of-the-art infotainment system
