The automotive media will probably never stop comparing the Chevrolet Corvette and Porsche 911. The two sports cars couldn’t be more different, but at the same time they share multiple similarities. They are both relatively affordable compared to other high performance cars on the market, they are considered legendary nameplates among car enthusiasts, and both are extremely successful on the race track.
Unlike the Porsche 911 however, the Corvette always made the most sense here in North America. It’s a big, wide American gas guzzler that is no longer the affordable performance car it is in North America once it makes the jump across the pond to Europe, where the asking price for one is often substantially higher.
The latest ‘Vette is a bit different than the others, though. It will be sold all over Europe, and is being lauded as one of the best performance cars to ever emerge from the land of the free. Top Gear magazine recently acquired one to find out just how it fairs on the twisty, rain-covered British A-roads against the proven 991-generation 911. We know the Stingray can handle the 911 on the track, but how does it fair on public European roads? Check out TG’s full review right here to find out.
