The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.2
8.4

TCC’s Bottom Line

Though by no means a pick for daily driving, the 2009 Dodge Viper is a fantastic-looking sportscar with winning performance. Nostalgia is still a big part of the appeal, but the 2010 Ford Mustang is now every bit a modern, refined sport coupe.
