TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Audi R8 balances thrilling power and handling with everyday livability. The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette antes up stunning performance and great features; we're mixed on its boy-racer looks. The 2017 Dodge Viper is blessed with a stunning, seductive shape. Its big-engine, rear-drive formula remains appealing, even as the Viper drives off into the sunset.
