The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
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 Porsche Boxster is a thrill to drive; but beyond that it's a great car in nearly every way, and one of the best-value sports cars you can get.
