The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 BMW i8 is a head-turner for its looks, which hides its plug-in powertrain. That’s good or bad, depending on your priorities. The 2019 Porsche 911 is a legendary sports car that serves as the benchmark for performance and comfort.
