Chevy Corvette Vs Porsche 911 Carrera S

Big, powerful, brash, commanding, American: all adjectives that could be used to describe the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette. On this year’s Corvette, Chevy brought in a new seat design with larger side bolsters, a redesigned steering wheel, and some extra padding on the armrests. A car that already had a laundry list of great interior features also improved upon its already stellar sound system. The new ‘Vette is now available with a nine-speaker Bose sound system along with several other customizable options. The current generation has been out since 2005, giving Chevrolet enough time to perfect the model. When the 2012 Corvette is stacked up to many of its competitors, drivers near Bradenton and all over Florida will notice this sports car gives them a lot more bang for their buck. Let’s take a look at how the 2012 Corvette compares to one of its biggest rivals, the 2012 Porsche Carrera

Features and Power of the Corvette and Carrera

The 2012 Chevrolet Corvette and 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera are two of the most prestigious sports cars available on the American market. Both of these vehicles have a distinct and beautiful, albeit different, exterior design. Both of these cars pack more power than a driver could ever need on the road. However, when we take a closer look at the 2012 Corvette and the 2012 Carrera, we feel the Corvette gives drivers more for their money.

First, the 2012 Corvette comes with a 6.2L V8 engine that produces 430 hp and 424 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, the 2012 Carrera puts out just 385 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. Moving inside, amenities such as a rearview camera, heated driver seat, satellite radio, navigation, and hands-free communication; most of these amenities come standard in the Corvette and entirely unavailable on the Porsche.

Overall, the 2012 Chevy Corvette gives drivers more features and power than the more expensive Porsche Carrera.
