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.

In the GT-R's small niche, the driving experience, 0-60 times, and the numbers mean everything.

So does the driving experience itself.

If you consider price, the two rivals, most directly, are the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and the Porsche 911 Turbo.

The 911 Turbo beats both in price with its 480-hp turbo flat six and top speed of 200 mph, but not necessarily its speed.

The ZR1's supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 launches it to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds, and to a top speed of 205 mph, all for a price about $20,000 higher than the GT-R—with two fewer seats.

Above that, there's not much else but the million-dollar Bugatti Veyron.

At a fraction of the price, the 2013 Nissan GT-R beats some of the top supercars to the punch, although their sensuality is missing.

Balanced, comfortable, and very fast (or very, very fast), the 2013 Chevrolet Corvette promises to ring out the C6 generation with grace and aptitude as well as attitude.

Still a tremendous value, the 2013 Porsche 911 range offers a great balance between dedicated sports car handling and daily practicality.
