The 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 vs. the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S
Tampa drivers, when you’re looking for the top of the top-of-the-line race-ready sports cars, come to Cox Chevrolet in Bradenton where we have the 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06. It’s called a supercar for a reason, and we think it’s a title well deserved. Incredible power, the latest in auto technology, and a truly beautiful car, there is little more you could ask out of a Corvette.
There are few vehicles that could hope to compete with the power, style, and legacy of a Corvette, but a model like the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S is sure going to try. It’s Corvette vs. Porsche in this comparison.
Who Pulls Ahead in Power?
Both the 911 and the Corvette bring drivers looking for power, but which one offers more power and does it really make a difference? Some vehicles in the supercar bracket come within a few horsepower of each other, and at that point, there’s not a whole lot separating them. That’s not the case here.
The 911 Turbo S is rated at 560 hp from its turbocharged six-cylinder engine. That’s not bad at all, but if you want to max out the power, Chevrolet knows the truth: you need a V8. The Z06 has a 6.2L V8 engine that gets 625 hp and 635 lb-ft of torque. That’s a difference you’ll feel as you put the pedal to the floor.
There are many features of either vehicle that could make it appealing to a given driver, but at the end of the day, we think only the diehard Porsche fans will go for the 911. Chevy gives you state of the art technology like a performance data recorder that lets you view your latest drive right alongside performance statistics—you can even share it online!
The Z06 is designed to maximize its aerodynamics too, built for downforce to keep you cruising down the pavement. You can even remove the roof panel to feel the wind in your hair and shave a few pounds off the Corvette. The 911 Turbo S does offer some modern technology—Bluetooth and other amenities—but it is nothing befitting a supercar. In fact, it falls short of competing models like the Nissan GT-R, SRT Viper, and others.
