Today, we review the Porsche Cayman GT4 and the Renault Megane RS Trophy R. Matt Prior and James Disdale take both cars to Anglesey race circuit for a track test to find out which is quicker: the Porsche pure sports car or the Renault hot hatchback.

The 2019 Cayman GT4 picks up where the old GT4 left-off, with a 4.0-litre naturally aspirated flat six engine rather than the four-cylinder turbo of standard Caymans.

The 2019 Megane Trophy R also does what its predecessors did: it's a front-wheel drive master, with a powerful 2.0-litre four cylinder engine, no back seats and is so fast that it's the front-wheel drive Nurburgring lap record holder.

  Autocar Heroes: Renault's Nurburgring specials - the world's best hot hatchbacks? If you want to go fast around the Nurburgring Nordschleife in a front-wheel drive production car, the Renault Megane RS is your answer. The Renault Sport Megane R26R was the first to do it. This 227bhp stripped-out hatchback was some 123kg lighter than a regular Megane R26 RS, capable of 0-62mph in just 5.7 seconds and set a then-record Nordschleife lap time of 8m17s. Then came the Megane 275 Trophy R. It did a similar thing again: with no more power (271bhp) than the Renault Sport Megane Trophy that spawned it, it could go from 0-60mph in just 5.4 seconds and lap the Nurburgring in 7m54s at the hands of Lauren Hurgon, Renault's chief test driver. And now there's this: the very latest 2020 Renault Megane RS 300 Trophy R, which again loses its rear seats and very many kilos, gains a lot in price, and laps the Nuburgring in just 7m40s. Now, in one of our series of Autocar Heroes videos, we've brought the three of them together, to see just how exceptional they are on the road. Are these stripped out hatchbacks among the best ever made? And if they are, which is the best of them? Join Matt Prior for the Autocar reckoning. New videos are uploaded to Autocar each week.

2020 Porsche 911 Speedster video review: the best convertible Porsche ever? .
The 2020 Porsche 911 Speedster is what you get if you imagine a Porsche 911 GT3 without a roof. With a 4.0-litre naturally aspirated engine, a six-speed manual gearbox, and GT-department suspension the Speedster is the last of the line for the 991-generation 911. It's incredibly focused to drive and engaging, like the best Porsches, on road or the track. New videos are uploaded to Autocar each week. Don't miss a single one.
