One is an American supercharged missile, the other is a European perfection machine. We’re, of course, referring to the Chevy Corvette ZR1 and Porsche 911 Turbo, respectively.
In its latest comparo, Motor Trend had the awesome idea of pitting the two street-legal race cars head-to-head. Both supercars were put through a 1,320-feet drag, with the German contender taking the crown in the race. The 911 also walked away with the title of “the fastest manual transmission [Motor Trend] has ever tested.”
But speed is one thing… sex appeal is something entirely different. The ZR1 had the pleasure of being kissed, as the host of the segment points out: “… both cars were alternately parked in front of my house for two weeks, but I discovered pink lipstick marks only on the Corvette’s windshield. That’s right, someone kissed the ZR1.”
In the end, the overall winner of the comparo may surprise you.
