Normally Motor Trend features modern-day vehicles on their You Tube comparison show Head 2 Head, like the Cadillac CTS and Lexus GS350 F Sport, for example. But this week they decided to change it up and acquired two cars which were manufactured when The Doors topped the Billboard music charts and there were still Soviet missiles in Cuba, the 1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427 Tri-Power and 1968 Porsche 911L.
Why these two? Well, the Corvette and 911 have been fierce rivals both on and off the racetrack for years now, and the two nameplates are one of the few cars produced in the 60s still going strong today. Despite this, the two are very different. The C2 Corvette is the big brute of the two, with a 7.0-liter V8 and over 400 horsepower, while the 911 is the light and nimble driver’s car, weighing in at just over 2,000 lbs.
Because of their obvious performance differences, Motor Trend wastes almost no time comparing the handling and acceleration between the Corvette and the 911. Instead, host Johnny Lieberman sets out to see which one of these cars feels more special to drive, which is probably what you would buy it for in the first place. Which does he pick? Find out in the video below.
