C8 Corvette Z06 vs Porsche 992 GT3: Which Is The Better Sports Car? – savagegeese
Whenever Chevrolet introduces a new Z06 variant of the Corvette, it brings with it certain expectations. Initially launched in 1963 by Corvette expert Zora Arkus-Duntov as a special performance package for Corvette C2 owners interested in tracking their cars, the simple three-character badge has gained significant importance in the Corvette community. Used intermittently over the years, the 2023 Corvette C8 Z06 represents the fifth iteration of this esteemed performance package.
On paper, the rear-engine C8 Z06 seems to live up to its title. Chevrolet has equipped it with the all-new 5.5-liter LT6 V8, delivering 670 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, boasting a redline of 8600 rpm. But how does it compare against a Porsche 911 GT3?
Jack and Mark from SavageGeese are back with another incredibly in-depth comparison between the new Corvette Z06 to a Porsche 911 GT3. Like all of their videos, this is also long but it is definitely worth watching as they leave no stone unturned in evaluating the capabilities, design, and general use of both cars.
In the video, we get to see them compare both cars from all perspectives which includes interior and exterior design, mechanical and driving impressions, even lap times with a professional driver behind the wheel. If you’re comparing these two cars, you’re unlikely to find another match-up that’s quite as well-researched.
