Smoke vs. Fire - Corvette vs. Cayman
Big and fast or small and agile?
Corvette vs. Porsche - that's beyond ordinary duel. That's a clash of two philosophies.
Fact is: Corvette is more powerful - mighty 6,2l V8 with 437bhp speeds to 100km/h in less than 5s.
Compared to that, Cayman's 3,4 boxer is weak. Straight road will be Corvette's playground, leaving Porsche far behind.
Still, there are not many such roads in Europe - fast sporty driving and cutting corners is where Cayman shines. Centrally placed engine provides perfect balance so needed on curvy roads.
On top of the above, Corvette needs 2,4l more for every 100km of the road. It has a larger storage space than Porsche - perfect for 6 packs of beer (non-alcoholic of course) compared to Cayman's only 4.
With no doubt, Corvette's sheer power is impressive. It's far better for easy cruising long distances.
But, Porsche's superior steering, traction and suspension are better, resulting in far more agile performance. Easy win!
