The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.2
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
Teutonic handling perfection meets its dream match in the 2011 Audi R8's lusty, Italian-engineered V-10 heart. The 2011 Tesla Roadster is a classic, open-top two-seat sportscar with handling and performance among the best, plus unsurpassed green cred. But drive it fast and often, and your range falls below 200 miles.
