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.
