TCC’s Bottom Line
What’s not to like about the 2008 Chevrolet Corvette? Never has any car delivered on its performance promise with such ease and confidence for such an affordable price. The 2008 Dodge Viper is a stunning performer, a great-looking sportscar in any body form, and still a handful on public roads.
