Corvette Stingray Takes on the Porsche 911 Carrera S, Audi R8, Jaguar F-Type
The new C7 Corvette Stingray is a lot of car for the money. It provides huge amounts of power and on the road a good ride.
We know from Chris Harris that it isn’t always as composed on a track as the Porsche 911 Carrera S, but this isn’t as noticeable on the road. Chris came to the conclusion that the 911 was worth the higher premium, but that the American sports car was still very good and had more available power.
In this video Autocar tests the new Corvette against some of the best cars out of Europe. They compare it against the 991 Carrera S for acceleration and braking which the findings appear to match what Chris Harris experienced. Then it is put up against the Jaguar F-Type to compare the sound and how much fun the driving experience is. Finally it is compared to the R8 for its composure.
While we aren’t sure if they compared it against all the strengths of each European car, it is still interesting to see how much closer the new Corvette is to its rivals across the pond.
