This past weekend we spent some time at the Cruising Morro Bay car show in Morro Bay, California. The show is a very good one that happens every year on the first weekend in May.

When attending you will see plenty of high performance machines, most of which are American iron. There are plenty of hot rods and muscle cars, with a few European automobiles mixed in. At the show we spotted the above Shelby Cobra 427 Continuation and had to get some footage of the wonderful machine.

Porsche 911L Targa Versus Corvette 427 – Should They Be Compared?

American horsepower or German engineering? That is the question that Motor Tend asks when comparing a 1968 Porsche 911L Targa with a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427. Both classic cars are great in their own way, but which would you rather have?

In this video they compare the two cars on some nice roads along the California Coast. The Corvette has a lot of power, but has poor steering and the 911 doesn’t have quite the performance, but has incredible steering feel.

But is comparing these cars even fair? The 911L wasn’t the pinnacle of the Porsches, where the 427 is considered by many the best Corvette ever. Perhaps from a strict performance stand point the 1967 Corvette 427 should be compared to the 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7.

Watch the video and then let us know what you think of the two cars and if they chose the correct cars to put against each other.
