A little tired of auto journalists comparing the front engined 4 seat CS to mid engined 2 seat sports cars (?!). What about the A45 AMG, RS3 or LC500?

I've been thinking the very same for some time.

Both cars play in the same league as the M2C. I can't remember any specific comparos with the A45 but there were several with the RS3 a couple years ago. Probably doesn't make sense to do it again with the M2CS since performance is likely pretty similar and majority of changes are cosmetic...

RS3 tops out at $66K fully loaded. The M2CS is what? $84k base price? That's a massive price difference. Also, the RS3 wasn't built for the track, whereas the M2CS was. Would be an interesting comparison though.

Honestly I think it's a compliment to the CS that it gets run up against the Cayman GTS instead of the A45 and RS3 which are basically glorified hot hatches. And I the LC500 is just a boat

Agreed. At least in a recent CAR Mag review I shared the Evora was in the mix.

Should be like for like 4 seaters or 2+2

The A45 and RS3 are hopped up shopping cars.
