Porsche 911 GTS vs Audi R8 Spyder
So we know the R8 is good. But can Audi's cheapest Spyder top Porsche's finest 911 cabriolet? TG finds out...

The GTS is one of the very best of the cabrios in Porsche's baffling 911 line-up - quick and engaging with a beautifully judged ride. But shell out your hard-earned on it, and I guarantee there'll be a moment every so often - maybe once a week, maybe once a month - where you'd think, "Damn, wish I'd bought the coupe." The 911 is slightly compromised in soft-top form: a bit blurred round the edges, a little unsure of its purpose. The R8 feels even better than its hard-top sibling. It's a bona fide supercar, as good in V8 form as V10. Eclipse that.
