The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Audi S5 Coupe and S5 Cabriolet are among the best-looking (and best-performing) luxury coupes on the market. The 2016 Porsche Boxster is a thrill to drive; but beyond that it's a great car in nearly every way, and one of the best-value sports cars you can get.
