The Porsche 911 and the Chevrolet Corvette, two iconic sports cars from two very different companies. Some might think the two would be worlds apart, but this latest comparison from Edmunds shows that the two sports cars may not be so different after all. The Porsche beats the 2014 Corvette in a sprint from 0-60, mainly due to its PDK transmission and launch control, but for the rest of the test the two cars are neck and neck, though the American eagle posts slightly better numbers.
Around the Streets of Willow road course, the Corvette Stingray was a full second faster than the 911 (1:24.6 to 1:25.6). The Corvette stops shorter, takes the slalom faster and corners harder, all while costing significantly less than the Porsche. As tested, the 911 came in at a whopping $144, 350 compared to the Stingray’s price tag of $69, 375, which is an insane price gap, especially considering the performance stats. Watch it all unfold in the video below.
