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 Audi TTS offers about the same amount of interior space and comparable handling, but with a distinctly different image.

For those hungering for a bit more power and raw emotion, the Nissan 370Z or Chevrolet Corvette might fit the bill, though neither rises to the Porsche's level of sophistication.

If you can do without refinement altogether and simply want the purest driving experience available, the Lotus Elise or Exige are priced in the same range as the Porsche Cayman and Cayman S, but jettison nearly all creature comforts in the name of better handling.

Ridiculously fast and still daily-driver practical, the 2011 Chevrolet Corvette is an everyday supercar.

A great performance car that starts just under $30,000, the 2011 Nissan 370Z comes close enough to Porsche performance to make you wonder.
