So far, we’ve seen Edmunds compare the 2014 Corvette Stingray to almost every one of its main rivals on the market today; the BMW M3, Nissan GT-R, SRT Viper, Porsche 911, and even the Ford Shelby Mustang GT500. But what happens when you get them all together on the same day for a side by side comparison, and throw a Porsche Cayman S in the mix for good measure?
Well, around The Streets Of Willow Springs, the Corvette was outpaced only by the Viper, which was the quickest car of the lot. Although it was the fastest, Edmunds noted the Viper is the most difficult of the cars to drive, saying it was demanding and felt as if it was going to bite back on the track. In comparison, the Vette has the more compliant chassis and was only six tenths of second slower around the track than the Viper, despite being down 180 hp.
This comparison pits the C7 against a superb variety of sports cars. Front, mid and rear engined, naturally aspirated and forced induction, AWD and RWD. So in this test, in the company of some of the worlds best sports cars, how does the $70,000 Corvette Stingray stack up? Scroll below for the Edmunds verdict.
