    EVO: C6 vs 997

    Interesting that Euro-vettes get the Z-51 sport chasis package standard!... smart move by GM if they want a chance to penetrate the Euro market. For those not familiar with the vette, the Z51 package is the "Z06 chasis setup" equivalent for the base vette, so it gives us a preview of the C6-Z06's handling but without the Z06's engine and other upgrades.

    This is a comparo between the "Z-51 fitted" C6 and the base 997 (although the one in the pic looks like a 997S to me due to the red brakes):

    2nd page and last. Yeah its short, but clear

    Re: EVO: C6 vs 997

    This issue, Corvette vs. Porsche is mind boggling. For me the answer is so absolutely obvious yet extremely difficult to explain. I would *never* choose a Corvette over a Porsche. Is it just me? We could cover every aspect, image appeal, styling, quailty, history, class/refinement, performance and Porsche would win every time.

    I just wish Porsche would slap a 400hp V8 (or equivalent) into their base 911 and make the issue of Corvette vs. Porsche go away forever.

    Re: EVO: C6 vs 997

    I don't understand who would have a doubt in between buying a Corvette or a 911 . Even if both cars had exactly the same performance which they don't, I think both cars have radically different images and attract different people.
