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 Porsche 918 Spyder's only real natural competition comes from two even more expensive and limited-volume hypercar hybrids: the McLaren P1 and the Ferrari LaFerrari.

All of them produce horsepower in the 900-1000 hp ballpark, all of them do it with some form of hybrid drive system, all of them have advanced composite construction, and all of them have highly developed aerodynamics.

So what's the difference? Which one is best? That's largely a matter of preference.

They're all faster than you'll ever need on the street, and faster than most will be able to handle on track.

They're all surprisingly efficient, especially considering their performance capabilities.

And they're almost all already sold.
