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.

While the SLS AMG GT stands alone as the gullwing car in this group, each has its own mix of luxury and serious speed.

Audi's R8 is a strong alternative on both design and performance fronts, particularly in top-of-the-line R8 V10 Plus form.

Nissan's GT-R is the outlier here, offering less luxurious appointments but an all-wheel drive, twin-turbo V-6 powertrain that's ruled by some truly masterful electronics.

The Porsche 911 is a scalpel to most of the rest of this group's sledgehammer, with refined and precise driving characteristics, though it may not score as high on the panache scale.

The Maserati GranTurismo and Ferrari California offer their own brands of passionate styling, while being quick and fun-to-drive in their own right.

The 2014 Porsche 911 range spans a broad spectrum, but somehow manages to hit exactly the right marks at each point, balancing performance, features, and practicality almost perfectly.
As the entry point to Ferrari ownership, the 2014 California balances performance, style, and practicality surprisingly well.
