The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
Now in its third year, the 2014 Tesla Model S has no direct competitor. It remains the undisputed top choice in the growing world of plug-in electric cars, and there's a good case to be made that it's the most advanced car of any kind on the planet. The 2014 Porsche Panamera adds to the desirability of an already heady mix of performance, style, and functionality.
