The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
9.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Elegant, stylish, comfortable, and quick, the 2012 BMW 6-Series is one of the top choices for a grand-touring coupe or convertible--as long as your budget can handle it. The 2012 Porsche 911 is one of the best buys in the sports car market, and quite possibly the most practical, luxurious car at its performance level available.
