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 Cayman has few natural rivals, balancing luxury, sport, and size in a niche segment.

Its best alternatives are other Porsches: the soft-top Boxster and the bigger-brother 911.

The Boxster provides very similar levels of performance and luxury, while adding the fun of top-down driving.

The 911 overlaps the upper end of the Boxster S spectrum on price, and packs more power, space, and utility, as well as its own brilliant take on handling and dynamics.

For other alternatives, you have to look to Nissan and its luxury brand Infiniti.

The 2014 Nissan 370Z is about $3,000 less expensive than it was last year--and about half the price of the Cayman--making it a smart performance value in the 300-plus horsepower class.

If you want more luxury with your sport, the 2014 Inifniti Q60 (previously known as the G37 Coupe) offers the punch of the 370Z with a plus-two back seat and upgraded interior materials and equipment.
