We know the new Porsche Cayman GT4 is a great, old-school driver's car on the road and track, but how does it fare in a drag race against the more brutish BMW M4 and Lexus RC-F and altogether more futuristic BMW i8? We joined forces with PistonHeads.com and headed to a disused airstrip in Alconbury, Cambridgeshire to find out the answer. And, with a blatant jump start out of the way, we discovered our winner in spectacular fashion...

the gap would be more. Gt4 is light has close to 400 bhp. It embarrasses far more powerful cars than an m4. GT4 would kill an m4 everywhere.

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
