You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Porsche 911 as you will with the Chevrolet Corvette, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.
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 Porsche 911 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Chevrolet Corvette, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Porsche 911 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Corvette.
Since the Porsche 911 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Corvette, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Porsche 911 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Chevrolet Corvette.
The Porsche 911 has much less torque than the Chevrolet Corvette, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.
The Porsche 911 has a smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Corvette, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.
The Porsche 911 has less horsepower than the Chevrolet Corvette, so it will probably be somewhat slower.
The Porsche 911 offers greater seating capacity than the Chevrolet Corvette, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Porsche 911 has significantly less cargo room than the Chevrolet Corvette, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Porsche 911 than that of the Chevrolet Corvette.
