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.

While it may have several formidable rivals, the Corvette’s prime nemesis remains the Dodge Viper.

The Dodge now boasts an 8.4-liter V-10 engine pumping out an even 600 horsepower as its sole powertrain option and is humbled only by the ZR1.

Nissan’s GT-R also shows that it has what it takes to topple the Corvette, even approaching the ZR1 in performance.

Combined with its all-wheel-drive system and sophisticated electronics, the 480-horsepower Nissan proves itself worthy on more than one count.

The next closest competitor to the Corvette would have to be the Porsche 911.

With its range of models (rear- and all-wheel drive, naturally aspirated, and turbo powered), the German icon offers more choice and arguably more refinement than the American, though at a significant cost.

While the Porsche Boxster lines up nicely against the base Corvette, its six-cylinder engine is no match for the Chevy’s muscular V-8.

The same goes for Nissan’s 370Z, although the sound from the Z’s tailpipes may persuade even the most loyal of ‘Vette fans.

The Nissan Z has never occupied the top spot in the performance world—and it doesn't now—but it's still a great performance car that starts just under $30,000.
