TCC’s Bottom Line

A marriage of the best of German handling and Italian power, the 2012 Audi R8 is a fantastic all-around supercar. The 2012 Maserati GranTurismo carves out a grand-touring niche for itself with Italian cachet, an earthy Ferrari rumble, and a serene blend of ride and handling. The 2012 Porsche 911 is one of the best buys in the sports car market, and quite possibly the most practical, luxurious car at its performance level available.
