TG Speed Week: The Sports Cars
Audi TT RS Plus. Porsche 911. Lotus Exige S. Three self-confessed "driver's cars" go head to head

It weighs 1,395kg and has 400bhp, which'll do nicely. It also has fully electric steering these days, which works fine even if it isn't as detailed as it used to be, or as interactive as Porsche purists wish it still was. Trust me, on a hot lap of the TG track it's absolutely as thrilling as you'd want, and feels bulletproof while it's at it. Load it up into the Follow-Through, throttle off a bit, and revel in the balance of a truly epic, endlessly adjustable chassis. Out of Chicago, the 911 will slide deliciously under power if you ask it to, although there's a deep reservoir of grip if you don't want to stray out of your comfort zone.
