The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Audi R8 brings the expected Germanic, technical appeal to the supercar arena-but it's the imported Italian V-10 that reveals some true lust in its heart. You'll be dazzled by the 2011 Porsche 911's unending driving joy, and maybe stunned by its passenger comfort and even its fuel economy.
