TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class dukes it out on comfort with more sporting rivals. The 2018 Porsche 718 range adds an impressive GTS variant to an already outstanding lineup. The 2018 Porsche 911 is a superlative sports car that has defied its age. It’s a classic, but performs better than nearly any newcomer to its arena.
