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.

The SLS AMG GT is remarkable in standard form, and truly outstanding in Black Series guise, but there are a few cars on the market that rival it in both performance and luxury.

The Audi R8, particularly the V10 in coupe or spyder form, offers its own unique take on extreme performance, but with a more comfortable, daily-use appeal lacking in the SLS.

The Nissan GT-R doesn't match the SLS AMG for luxury or refinement, but its performance is truly breathtaking.

Porsche's 911 matches the Audi R8 for daily ease-of-use, and in 911 Turbo form, is utterly unshakeable in its on-track or back-road performance abilties.

The Ferrari California and Maserati Gran Turismo offer slightly more exotic appeal, especially the Ferrari, but for the design conscious, the gullwing doors may outweigh even graceful Italian styling.

The 2015 Porsche 911 is an enthusiast's dream, with excellent handling, comfort, and performance at every step through its range.

The Maserati GranTurismo looks equally good with a fixed or convertible roof and offers a Ferrari-built V-8 for those who want similar power in a different Italian wrapper.
As the entry point to Ferrari ownership, the 2014 California balances performance, style, and practicality surprisingly well.
