The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Chevrolet Corvette delivers unmatched performance for the dollar and the features to go with it; the looks are arresting but perhaps too aggressive for some tastes. The 2018 Nissan GT-R carries the Japanese supercar torch with en fuego twin-turbo power, all-wheel drive, and snicky dual-clutch gearchanges.
