TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Audi R8 balances thrilling power and handling with everyday livability. The 2016 Chevrolet Corvette's exceptional performance, style, comfort, and features, as well as its choice of high-power engines and body styles, adds up to an impressive sports car and grand tourer in one—and a car that won't break the bank. The big-engine, rear-drive formula never gets old—not when it's blessed with the 2016 Dodge Viper's stunning shape.
