First drive: The all-new BMW Z4 showcases the brand’s roadster-building expertise


What is it? The convertible market usually takes one of three directions. First there’s the half-baked chopped-up hatchback or saloon, then there’s the super-sporty soft-top, and finally there’s the comfortable and glitzy cruiser.It’s these latter two that BMW needs to blend together in this – the latest Z4. Buyers of cars such as this one won’t tolerate a rough ride or spartan interior, but at the same time BMW has a reputation to maintain, and giving it the title of ‘the ultimate driving machine’ won’t go unchallenged.So, with a new platform, upgraded interior and divisive new styling, can the latest Z4 take the fight to talented rivals such as the Porsche Boxster and Jaguar F-Type?

What is it? You’ve likely heard of the Porsche 911 GT3, right? The stripped-out, ultra-focused version of Porsche’s already capable 911? Accompanied by a price in excess of £100,000 (as well as waiting list stretching far into the future), it’s a car few will ever be able to purchase. So Porsche has applied the same measures to its base 911 Carrera to create this – the Carrera T. It’s lighter and more exclusive than Porsche’s entry-level 911, but costs close to £25,000 less than the range-topping GT3.


UK Drive: The Porsche 911 GT3 RS offers a mesmerising driving experience


What is it? It’s a pretty special moment whenever Porsche introduces any new car, but a new RS model? Well that’s even more of an occasion. It brings us to this – the new 911 GT3 RS. It’s a harder, stiffer and more track-focused version of the already very capable 911 GT3 designed to handle every corner you throw at it. It’s already proving incredible successful – Porsche simply cannot build enough to meet demand – but we’ve managed to get some time behind the wheel to see what all the fuss is about.
