The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.2
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Porsche 911 is in a class of its own, and if you have your heart set on one, there's very little else to compare it to. 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.
