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.

Our expert editors build comparisons like this one to make it easy for you to understand the small handful of cars you should compare to whatever car you are already looking at. You get general thoughts on each car you should consider plus an easy way to compare basic information for yourself.

When you're spending around $40,000, you have plenty of good cars to choose from.

In addition to the cars on this list, we could have easily added the Mazda Miata and the Chevrolet Corvette.

What will help you make up your mind is deciding what kind of driving experience you are looking for.

The most connected and dynamic will come from the Honda S2000 and the two Porsches.

Matching the moves of the Cayman may be close to impossible.

More laid-back but still exciting experiences are available in the Nissan 350Z and Chrysler's Crossfire (related to the previous-generation Mercedes-Benz SLK).

The 2008 Chrysler Crossfire is a sexy roadster with gobs of power, a tight cockpit, and a style all its own.

The 2008 Honda S2000 is a purist's sports car, with the resulting compromises in room and refinement.

The 2008 Porsche Cayman can be just as much of a blast to drive as the flagship 911 sports car; if you watch the options, it’s a deal, too.
