Where izzit?

Metal that didn’t make it – and why

PORSCHE 911 GT3 RS

Hardcore RS could’ve wiped ’em all, but we’ll never know, as the demo just missed the dates.

FERRARI CALIFORNIA T

As ever, we asked, but Ferrari isn’t too keen on playing in multi-car competitions.

LAMBO HURACAN

Baby Lambo was sadly otherwise booked; we’ll be getting in early for 2016.

HSV CLUBSPORT R8 LSA

Supercharged Clubby will be on the grid for 2016, having missed out by weeks this year.

MCLAREN 675 LT

With every car sold to customers, it’s not surprising that press 675LTs are thin on the ground.

FERRARI 488 GTB

Missed out on timing, but could be a potential 2016 champ – if it shows up, of course. timing

AUDI RS3

It was booked, but PCOTY was a bit too close to the local launch, so it was pulled last minute.

AUDI TT S

Another that missed by a couple of weeks. Unlikely to have been at the pointy end, anyhow.

ALFA ROMEO 4C

Sadly, both 4C press cars had some bad luck, so there wasn’t one available for PCOTY.

ABARTH 695 BIPOSTO

As mad as a box of frogs, but would’ve been seriously out of its depth at PCOTY.

MINI JCW

No manuals yet, and those who had driven it reckoned it would’ve been an also-ran.

FORD MUSTANG GT

A January 2016 launch means it’ll be present and correct for next year’s contest.

MAZDA MX-5 2.0L GT

Another that missed out on timing, though we had the 1.5 locked in already anyway.

PORSCHE CAYMAN GT4

Porsche had a car, but wouldn’t risk it weeks before the local launch. Fair enough, too.

TESLA MODEL S P90D

Twin-motor Tesla just missed the dates and would’ve struggled with range.
