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. With sub-3.0-second 0 to 60 mph times and an advanced all-wheel-drive system, the 2017 Nissan GT-R delivers supercar track performance in what has become a fairly refined package.
