Porsche Taycan Turbo S v Polestar 1 v Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4dr | Autocar

What kind of fast grand touring cars will the future of the automobile bring us - and what will they be like?
The 751bhp Porsche Taycan Turbo S, priced at £139,000 ($187,470 in the US) which has a top speed of 162mph and can get from 0-62mph in just 2.8 seconds, gives us a taste of all-electric answers to that question.
Meanwhile the 592bhp Polestar 1 (top speed 155mph, 0-60mph in 4.2sec) suggests a plug-in hybrid take, priced at £135,500 (or $165,500 if you're in the USA).
Is either better than a V8-engined Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4dr for a long blast across continent? This 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged internally-combusted car can go from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in 3.8sec and has a mega top speed of some 193mph - because, y'know, engines.
Matt Saunders and Ricky Lane headed to the idyllic roads of the Cote d'Azur to find out what the future looks like.
