The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Alfa Romeo 4C is a dream car—light, nimble, quick, and fun—with zero practicality. In other words, it's a supercar. The 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster and Cayman remains some of our favorite performance cars; they're thrilling to drive, and in base form they're exceptional sports car value, too.
