TCC’s Bottom Line
The Ford Mustang keeps its newfound finesse and pony-car attitude, blasting past its 50th year with a rorty new Shelby GT350 variant plus more ways to stand out from the crowd. The 2016 Nissan 370Z offers a wide range of performance options in two body styles, all of which represent good value in a segment of the sports-car world with few other similarly priced options. The 2016 Scion FR-S is the perfect affordable sports car for many, with just enough in the way of creature comforts to keep it livable as a daily driver as well.
