The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.2
9.0
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 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.
