The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

9.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Chevrolet Corvette's exceptional performance, style, comfort, and features, as well as its choice of high-power engines and body styles, adds up to an impressive sports car and grand tourer in one—and a car that won't break the bank. With four seats, sub-three-second 0 to 60 mph times, an advanced all-wheel-drive system, and a reasonable sticker price, the 2016 Nissan GT-R is in a class by itself. From the satisfying Carrera to the outrageous GT3 RS, the 2016 Porsche 911 is consistently brilliant, and lives up to the this model line's pedigree in every respect—with some modern comforts spliced right in.
