2017 Chevrolet Corvette vs. 2017 Porsche 911
The 2017 Chevy Corvette Stingray and the 2017 Porsche 911 both deliver thrilling performance, but they have some serious differences to consider if you’re trying to decide between them. Take a look at how these two sports coupes compare side by side before you make any decisions:
- Price: The Chevy Corvette with an asking price of $55,400 for the Stingray Coupe isn’t exactly an economy car, but it’s practically a bargain when you compare it to the Porsche 911 Carrera, which starts at $89,400. The Porsche 911 Turbo S, the top level 911, starts at $188,100. The Corvette Z06 starts at only $79,450.
- Power: The base Corvette Stingray starts with a 6.2L V8 engine that cranks out 460 hp with sport exhaust. The Porsche 911 starts with a turbocharged 3.0L flat six-cylinder engine that produces 370 hp. At the other end of the spectrum, the Turbo S gets a 3.8L turbocharged six that makes 590 hp, which is still less than the Corvette Z06, which cranks out 650 hp with its supercharged 6.2L V8 engine.
- Warranty: The Corvette’s powertrain is covered by a 60-month/60,000-mile warranty, while the Porsche 911 is only covered by a 48-month/50,000-mile powertrain warranty. The same goes for Roadside Assistance. The Corvette also gets two years or 24,000-miles worth of maintenance, while the Porsche doesn’t get any.
- Features: The Porsche is missing some features that come standard on the much less expensive Corvette, including a compass, a driver information center, a voltage gauge, steering wheel audio controls, and a premium Bose 9-speaker audio system. The Porsche starts with an unbranded 8-speaker system.
