The Alfa Romeo 4C is almost here, finally, and while we wait to be handed the keys, here’s some driving impressions from one of the U.K.’s top journos, Chris Harris. He’s put up a review of the 4C for his online series /DRIVE, and brought along one of the Italian beauty's closest competitors, the Porsche Cayman, to pit against it.

Sadly, the weather during Harris’ test was appalling, so we don’t get a clear idea of what it’s like to drive the 4C during more normal conditions. However, considering that the 4C was up against one of the best cars ever built, according to Harris (and we tend to agree), the challenge was never going to be an easy one.
