The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
9.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Tesla Roadster is a classic, open-top two-seat sportscar with handling and performance among the best, plus unsurpassed green cred. But drive it fast and often, and your range falls below 200 miles. Teutonic handling perfection meets its dream match in the 2011 Audi R8's lusty, Italian-engineered V-10 heart.
