Alfa 4-C and Cayman compared to GT86

So, I put this in the wrong place earlier (I am prone to bouts of dumbass). Thought you guys would enjoy it.

While the video is more about the new Alfa Romeo 4-C (which is a gorgeous looking car) the folks at AutoCar see how it stacks up against the Cayman and the GT86. Makes me feel good to see the twins are now the standard by which sports cars are being measured.

I sat in the 4-C at my local dealer. It really feels like sitting in the FRs, just bigger. Love the car.

That's an 8C Competizone...$250K+ car vs. the $60K 4C

Very different cars SSchifko, but thanks for posting that 8C. Absolutely gorgeous design IMO.

That's an 8c actually but still amazing you got to sit in one of those, they are super rare. I think only 500 made.

The Scion certainly isn't the standard to measure sports cars. It doesn't even have an independent rear suspension.


Under steer is easy to fix.


I'd much rather go around a track with the 4C

What do you mean it doesn't have an independent rear suspension?
