Comparison Review

Convenience
The Chevrolet Corvette will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Porsche 911, 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). Based on MSRP, the Chevrolet Corvette is clearly a better financial choice over the Porsche 911. 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 911.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the Porsche 911, 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 911.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Corvette is somewhat more powerful than the Porsche 911.

Powertrain
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 911.

Utility
The Chevrolet Corvette has less seating than the Porsche 911, making the Porsche 911 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Corvette is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Porsche 911.
