TCC’s Bottom Line
Whether chosen as a coupe, convertible, or four-door Gran Coupe, the 2015 BMW 6-Series offers dynamic driving and massive style. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is sportier than its predecessor, but still manages to coddle its occupants just as before. The 2015 Porsche 911 is an enthusiast's dream, with excellent handling, comfort, and performance at every step through its range.
