The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Stupendously fast yet amazingly practical, the 2010 Chevrolet Corvette is the supercar you can live with. The Nissan Z has never occupied the top spot in the performance world—and it doesn't now—but it's still a great performance car that starts just under $30,000.
