This new episode of DRIVE sees Chris Harris heading to Chuckwalla Valley Raceway armed with a Porsche 911 Carrera S and a car that costs around the same as the extras on said 911 – the Corvette C7.
Powered by a 3.8-litre flat-six powerplant developing 298 kW (400 hp) and 440 Nm of torque, the Carrera S hits 100 km/h in just 4.3 seconds, and 4.1 s with Sport Plus engaged. Top speed is rated at 304 km/h (PDK 302 km/h).
Moving onto the Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray, power comes from a 6.2-litre V8 lump developing 335 kW (450 hp) and 610 Nm, enough for 100 km/h to be taken care of in 3.8 seconds and a maximum of 315 km/h.
