There’s no better place to test the true performance of a vehicle than on the track, which is why we often head to our local road course for comparison articles of everything from sports cars to hot hatches. But which car is fastest?

Now into our third year at the same facility, we’ve compiled a list of every car we’ve timed at the 1.86-mile AutoGuide Test Track* and listed them below. We’ll continue to update this list as we test more cars and be sure to make a BIG DEAL when a new car tops our list.

    I’d love to see the Lotus Evora and the new Exige V6.

  • Colum Wood

    Jeremy: Sadly the new Exige isn’t available in North America. We’ll see what we can do about that Evora though!

  • Fenderaddict2

    Nice time in the Boss. Best time for me is a full 7 seconds back.

  • Alfie

    The GT-R Track Edition will kill that R8′s time.

  • Robby G

    Have you driven that same track?

  • PermaPlate

    No surprise to see the Audi R8 at the top

  • Hal

    I can’t believe that 911 was almost as fast as the R8. I have to think the 911 Turbo would be even faster than the Audi. GO PORSCHE!

  • Josh

    The “Fastest Lap Times” list is a good tool to use when considering a new car purchase. There is, however, one element missing that would make it a great list, and that is the price of each car tested. Yes ?

  • Sri J

    I wouldn’t bet on it.

  • ColumWood

    You make a great point. This list is still in its infancy. We’ll try and update it with a better layout in the future; something similar to our Real World Fuel Economy page. http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2013/10/real-world-mpg-fuel-economy-database.html
