In years prior, if a European automotive magazine pitted a Corvette against some of the best sportscars Europe had to offer, they would have dismissed the ‘Vette as cheap, badly made and ultimately not worthy of going up against cars like the 911. While that wasn’t necessarily true anyways, the arrival of the 2014 Corvette Stingray appears to have broken the negative connotations attached to the Corvette nameplate overseas.
British magazine Autocar recently pitted the 2014 Corvette Stingray against a Porsche 911 Carrera, Audi R8 V8 and Jaguar F-Type V8….and they liked it. They didn’t just like it, they loved it, describing it as an “absolute peach of a car to drive at the limit.”
The Stingray was compared to the 911 to test its mid-range acceleration, the R8 for sharpness and steering feel and the F-Type was brought along to compare the two cars exhaust notes. We already know the American automotive media loves the latest Corvette, but what do the Brits think about it? Check out the comparison below to find out.
