2013 Chevrolet Corvette vs. 2014 Porsche Boxster Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Corvette and the Porsche Boxster in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Corvette as you will with the Porsche Boxster, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). The Chevrolet Corvette is somewhat more expensive than the Porsche Boxster. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Corvette and the Porsche Boxster have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the Porsche Boxster, 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 Boxster.

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 Boxster.

Handling
The Chevrolet Corvette has a larger turning radius than the Porsche Boxster, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Corvette has a much more powerful engine than the Porsche Boxster. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Corvette and the Porsche Boxster. The Chevrolet Corvette has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Porsche Boxster.

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