2017 Chevrolet Corvette vs. 2016 Porsche Cayman Review

Comparison Review

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

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 Cayman. 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 Cayman.

Since the Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the Porsche Cayman, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Corvette, which is slightly longer than the Porsche Cayman.

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 Cayman.

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

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Corvette and the Porsche Cayman. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Chevrolet Corvette as you will in the Porsche Cayman.

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