The very first episode of Motor Trend’s Head2Head was quite similar to this one. It featured a then-new C6 Corvette Grand Sport versus an also then-new Porsche 911.
Fast forward to present day and the C7 Corvette has certainly kicked things up a notch, and the 2017 C7 Corvette Grand Sport continues to be heralded as the goldilocks of the sports car. But, the new Porsche 911 Carrera S has also come out swinging with forced induction and a four-wheel steer system.
While the Porsche may look like a winner on paper, the C7 Grand Sport’s recipe is a tasty one. It takes every bit of capability from the C7 Corvette Z06 without the crazy power. It’s the best of both worlds. And, while the Porsche creams the Grand Sport in a straight line, there’s a lot more to the story on the track.
So, press play above and see if a Corvette is truly better than a Porsche.
