I would like to see other tests for the cars. Standing start isn't all I buy a car for.

So how about some track work and some everyday driving?

I think that's only part of the comparison test. They didnt upload the whole thing on youtube.

They tested 4 and the loser was taken out after each test.

1. Standing start- F type eliminated
2. Road driving- Porsche eliminated
3. Track laps - BMW eliminated

Leaving the TTRS as the winner.

They should have tested all 4 for everything. Bit of a let down!!

that is a let down... change the order of the events and the results would be completely different.

thanks for posting this so i don't waste my time looking at the other segments.

That's what I thought too. Plus I am warming to the idea of a Porsche. For this test, they said the Cayman T was too focused for the road.

Lol anybody notice how the Porsche was ahead of the cones to the front axel, the bmw was somewhat in line with the cones and the tt was behind the cones....

Not saying that makes a big difference but for a production like this youed figure they would have focused on at least the cars are all in line.

what a horrible test, first off a TTrs and a base 4 cyl F-type which btw they overlayed the sound of a v6 f type when it was doing its run.
