@hamcee sorry about that. I agree, I should have waited for some Alfa lap times. I think that the 4C will fare better on a track than any of the Elise variants since it has more torque, and a wider track. As you say, we will have to wait for lap times to see if it can match the Cayman R.

It will be interesting to re-visit this comparison after we get some lap times for the Alfa Romeo.
