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. Sensual? No, but the 2014 Nissan GT-R overwhelms our circuits with unearthly performance and grip.
