Comparison Review

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 718 Cayman, 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 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. 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 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. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Chevrolet Corvette as you will in the Porsche 718 Cayman.

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