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 Turbo is an amazing automobile and considerably more expensive than the 2009 Dodge Viper.

The personalities of these two vehicles are so different that we can't imagine a buyer ever making a choice between the two.

The only Corvette that really stands up to Chrysler's snake is the mighty Z06 edition.

The Viper outpowers the Corvette Z06 by 95 horsepower, but the Corvette is nearly as quick—not that anyone really cares about second place in this duel.

Another alternative for the muscle crowd is the soon-to-arrive 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang, which promises 540 horsepower from its supercharged V-8, along with significant improvements and a top speed of 155 mph.

Unlike the Viper, the GT500 promises to have a lot of civility to go with its bite.

Though by no means a pick for daily driving, the 2009 Dodge Viper is a fantastic-looking sportscar with winning performance.

Nostalgia is still a big part of the appeal, but the 2010 Ford Mustang is now every bit a modern, refined sport coupe.

While the 2009 Chevrolet Corvette provides plenty of impressive performance to dream and/or brag about, this car is not a one-trick pony. If ever there were a practical sportscar, this is it.
