TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Audi TT RS is the star on track, but all TT models offer fun and efficiency, plus a welcome dash of style. The 2013 BMW Z4 is spirited and purposeful, and balances fun and comfort quite well, but it's pricier than other roadsters. While the performance-per-dollar value of the 2013 Nissan 370Z remains largely intact, enabling it to play with more expensive sports cars for less money, rising prices narrow that advantage.
