The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
9.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
While the 2009 Chevrolet Corvette provides plenty of impressive performance to dream and/or brag about, this car is not a one-trick pony. If ever there were a practical sportscar, this is it. The 2009 Porsche 911 is in a class of its own, and if you have your heart set on one, there's very little else to compare it to.
