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.

Horsepower has an addictive affect on some people.

If you're one of those drivers, the standard 430 hp from the 2008 Chevrolet Corvette simply obliterates the ratings of the six-cylinder Porsche Boxster and Nissan 350Z; they're both fine sportscars, but the Chevy Corvette simply outguns them.

The energy from the Porsche 911's more powerful six-cylinder evens things up some, but the 911 is more expensive than the Chevy.

The Corvette's only true competitor is the Dodge Viper, which for 2008 boasts an even 600 hp.

The Viper and Corvette have very different characters, so in reality, they're not direct competitors, but if you're looking for a fight, pitting a Viper against a Corvette Z06 always makes for a good show.

The 2008 Dodge Viper is a stunning performer, a great-looking sportscar in any body form, and still a handful on public roads.

The 2008 Porsche Boxster performs brilliantly, and looks and feels the part, delivering a modern take on the classic roadster experience.
