The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
While the 2009 Chevrolet Corvette provides plenty of impressive performance to dream and/or brag about, this car is not a one-trick pony. If ever there were a practical sportscar, this is it. The 2008 Dodge Viper is a stunning performer, a great-looking sportscar in any body form, and still a handful on public roads.
