8.0

TCC’s Bottom Line

German precision and handling combines with Italian power to create a superb supercar that's also fit for daily use. The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray sets a new benchmark for value among well-equipped, comfortable, high-performance sports cars. The 2014 SRT Viper trades many of its rough edges for refined capability, but it's still a gruff, focused supercar.
