Comparison Review

Convenience
The Chevrolet Corvette will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Porsche 718 Cayman, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Corvette will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Porsche 718 Cayman. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche 718 Cayman.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the Porsche 718 Cayman, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Corvette, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche 718 Cayman.

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 718 Cayman.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Corvette has a much more powerful engine than the Porsche 718 Cayman. 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 718 Cayman. The Chevrolet Corvette has less cargo capacity than the Porsche 718 Cayman, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Corvette is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Porsche 718 Cayman.
