If you've been paying attention to the latest Porsche offerings, it's not just all about the Taycan. That's because the 718 Cayman now offers a GT4 as well as the Boxster Spyder.

420 horsepower in those tiny things is a lot of fun.

One little thing though. The folks at Autocar decided to put together a fun little competition featuring the all-new 718 Cayman GT4 and a car we don't get in the States. That would be the Renault Megane RS Trophy R.

The Megane is no joker. Featuring carbon fiber wheels, no back seats and a 300 horsepower motor, this front-wheel drive auto set the FWD lap record at the world famous Nürburgring.

So, how's it shake out? Watch the clip below.

Today, we review the Porsche Cayman GT4 and the Renault Megane RS Trophy R. Matt Prior and James Disdale take both cars to Anglesey race circuit for a track test to find out which is quicker: the Porsche pure sports car or the Renault hot hatchback.

The 2019 Cayman GT4 picks up where the old GT4 left-off, with a 4.0-litre naturally aspirated flat six engine rather than the four-cylinder turbo of standard Caymans.

The 2019 Megane Trophy R also does what its predecessors did: it's a front-wheel drive master, with a powerful 2.0-litre four cylinder engine, no back seats and is so fast that it's the front-wheel drive Nurburgring lap record holder.

Join us, then, as we find out whether the Cayman GT4 or Megane Trophy R is quicker.

CAR WARS! WHICH Is Quicker? The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Or The Renault Megane RS Trophy R?
