The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
9.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
A great performance car that starts just under $30,000, the 2010 Nissan 370Z comes close enough to Porsche performance to make you wonder. Fantastic handling, comfortable seating, and better-than-average cargo room make the Porsche Cayman a success in the segment.
