The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

9.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Balanced, comfortable, and very fast (or very, very fast), the 2013 Chevrolet Corvette promises to ring out the C6 generation with grace and aptitude as well as attitude. At a fraction of the price, the 2013 Nissan GT-R beats some of the top supercars to the punch, although their sensuality is missing. Still a tremendous value, the 2013 Porsche 911 range offers a great balance between dedicated sports car handling and daily practicality.
