TCC’s Bottom Line
The Maserati GranTurismo mates serene yet sporty handling with a beautiful Ferrari V-8 engine note for one fabulous luxury coupe. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is sportier than its predecessor, but still manages to coddle its occupants just as before. The 2015 Porsche 911 is an enthusiast's dream, with excellent handling, comfort, and performance at every step through its range.
