Porsche 718 Cayman

Back in 2016, Porsche completely reenvisioned their two-door sports car with central motor -the Porsche Cayman- and came up with the arguably new-and-improved and slightly renamed Porsche 718 Cayman. The company has taken similar steps with the Cayman's convertible cousin, the Porsche Boxster, which has also been revamped as the Porsche 718 Boxster. The main difference between the 718 iterations of both the Cayman and the Boxster is the inclusion of 4-cylinder turbo motors.
Given that it is not a convertible, the Porsche 718 Cayman is a more affordable alternative to its Boxster counterpart.

Mazda MX-5

This latest version of the Mazda MX-5 exemplifies what the iconic Japanese automaker refers to as its Kodo language of design. Translated roughly to the soul of movement, the Kodo design concept reveals itself in the lines of this retractable fastback, which bring to mind animals in their natural habitat, an arrow pulled back to the point of maximum tension, and other kinetic gestures.
Another key design concept of Mazda's is Jinba Ittai in which the primary purpose of technology is to connect the driver to the vehicle, forming one singular entity.

Toyota GT86/Subaru BRZ

The Toyota GT86 and the Subaru BRZ are essentially the same sports car. Both vehicles are manufactured at Subaru's facility in the Japanese mountain town of Gunma, and they both share many of the same main features.
The differences are minimal, and you will notice that whereas the GT86 has more rounded design features, the Subaru BRZ has a more angular look. There are a few other details that you'll want to look into, but at any rate, both the GT86 and the BRZ offer a smooth, stylish ride and handle corners well. At any rate, both are great options as far as Intelligent Car Leasing is concerned.


This compact coupe from Bavarian Motor Works has a 3-litre turbocharged six-cylinder motor that generates 370 CV and 500Nm of torque for fast and smooth acceleration. This two-door sports car from BMW has a manual transmission has six speeds, and there is an optional DCT automatic transmission (that's Dual Clutch Transmission) that offers 7 speeds.

Lotus Elite Sport 220

This is a souped-up version of Lotus' super light Elise Sports sports car. This model has an additional 200cc under the hood and an Eaton supercharger for even higher performance. This is an exceptionally well-balanced vehicle with a power-to-weight ratio that is practically unparalleled among the top 5 most affordable sports cars in 2018 (241PS per 1,000 kilograms).
