The most significant model to come out of Hethel in recent times is undoubtedly the Elise. Introduced in 1996 when the company belonged to Romano Artioli, the Elise is named after Artioli’s granddaughter Elisa. The young Italian beauty is currently based in Berlin, and...

The 928 is a trans-continental express, and we cement its reputation by driving 928 miles from Silverstone to the Nürburgring and back in a 928 GT. There’s a bonus ball: Hans Stuck gets reunited with his 928 CS too.

Would you believe it’s 928 miles from Silverstone to t...

In a bid to improve trackday driving standards, Johan Dirickx has prepared a trio of 944s - and issued the Sideways Challenge! We take an oblique view of the project…

How they miss one another I will never know! Two drift kings pirouetting their 944s in unison for the b...

Its owner murdered, this 2.7 RS languished in a Trinidad shed – till Autofarm’s Josh Sadler rescued it. Now the dilemma is whether to restore it, or merely recommission it.

Barricaded in its late owner’s Caribbean shed by his daughters to hide it from modern-day pirates...

Pounding the Nordschleife big dipper for 24 hours really is the greatest test of man and machine. We follow Falken Tyres’ 991 GT3-R’s steady rise up the running order, and greet the dawn with the crepuscular crazies in the forest.

Reprising 1981’s James Bond epic For Your Eyes Only aboard a ski-racked Evora, Johnny Tipler goes off-piste in the Alps.


I’m in Geneva, gateway to the Alps, luxuriating in the Hotel d’Angleterre beside the lakeside promenade, on a Lotus Cars press trip. I’ve driven an...

Two very different takes on modifying a 911: a supercharged 993 and a stripped-out 3.2 Carrera Club Sport. Both are brimming with attitude, yet one is a suave mile-muncher while the other’s a trackday bruiser.

There’s more than one way to skin a cat,and what we have her...

En route to Monaco, Johnny Tipler airs the new 1.6 Elise on some of the finest driving roads in Europe. Welcome to La Route Napoleon and the Gorge du Verdon.
