TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2020 Porsche 911 improves upon the sports car icon’s incredible performance while adding needed safety and connectivity features. The 2021 Porsche Taycan is no Tesla-fighter, but it’s the benchmark for fully electric performance. Growing old though it is, the Tesla Model S still looks and feels as fresh as when it first debuted eight years ago.
