The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
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. The 2013 Porsche Boxster is one of the most fun, stylish, and luxurious roadsters available.
