The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
9.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 GT-R outraces some of the world's top sports cars, at a fraction of their price. The 2012 Porsche 911 is one of the best buys in the sports car market, and quite possibly the most practical, luxurious car at its performance level available.
