TCC Rating
How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

The Porsche 911 has the same rear-seat issues-a near-complete lack thereof-that the 6-Series faces, and its cabin is a bit colder and more clinical, but its sheer performance and handling are superb, especially as you climb the ranks toward the Turbo.

Practicality is also a 911 boon, with front and rear cargo compartments due to the engine location.

Mercedes-Benz's SL eschews the 2+2 layout for a pure two-seat configuration and a roadster-only body style, but has even more weight and invasive technology issues than the BMW.

Nevertheless, it's a composed, capable roadster, and the folding hardtop adds versatility.

The Jaguar XKR offers classic styling and excellent on-road dynamics, being the closest to a traditional sports car of this group aside from the 911.

It's also eminently luxurious.

The 2010 Porsche 911 is an icon-as much for its teardrop shape, as for its startling performance.
