2017 Chevrolet Corvette vs. 2016 Porsche 911 Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
The Chevrolet Corvette will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Porsche 911, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Chevrolet Corvette is clearly a better financial choice over the Porsche 911. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Chevrolet Corvette will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Porsche 911.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the Porsche 911, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Corvette takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Porsche 911.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Corvette does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Porsche 911.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Corvette is somewhat more powerful than the Porsche 911.

Utility
The Chevrolet Corvette has less seating than the Porsche 911, making the Porsche 911 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chevrolet Corvette will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Porsche 911.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Corvette is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Porsche 911.
