Battle of the gods.
Porsche and Corvette clearly make the best sports cars in the world. Absolutely no contest

I think the 3.16 0-100 time was on drag radials.. Auto Bild must be lying because they're European and they don't use rollouts. That would equate to 2.75 0-60 mph in an American test

ZR1:
1st gear: 115 kmh
2nd gear: 165 kmh
3rd gear: 215 kmh

Agree'd... Both cars have been around for a long time, have kept the same name, same basic formula, and just evolve and get better each new generation.
911 and Corvette are the benchmark, and have been for quite sometime.

There the same. Theres really no saying otherwise.

You put THE BEST drivers, Drag and Track with these to cars, No biased, they would be the same in everything. The GT2RS/ZR1, GT3RS 4.0/ZO6 Carrera GTS/GrandSport, Carrera S/Z51, Are THE most compatible cars put together the world has ever seen, Porsche 997.2/ Chevrolet Corvette C6. Couldn't get closer if you wanted.

keep in mind the corvette's laps are a mix of the 2008 and 2012 models. the gt2 rs may be faster than the 2008 zr1, but as the laguna seca lap and also the hockenheim laptime shows (which is usually biased towards Porsche) there's no denying the 2012 zr1 is quicker around a track.

911 GT2 RS has much better the fastest acceleration times but i would like to these two supercars in drag race from a roll...

I think then difference wouldnt be that big.

Unreal how close these cars are in performance, I'd call it a tie between these two.

@jaykathi Porsche wins at nordschleife
Porsche wins 5-3 on tracks
5-2 if you don't include wet handling one

ZR1 Beats GT2 RS on Nordschleife
ZR1 Beats GT2 RS on HS
ZR1 Beats GT2 RS on LS
GT2 RS Beats ZR1 on FSP

They are Equally Fast on Track

I'm surprised at the result, I thought the Corvette ZR1 would have blown the Porsche's doors off. That 911 GT2 RS is a fast car! The ZR1 still has a higher top speed.

These cars rock! Thank god Porsche and Chevrolet still make manual transmissions. ZR1 & GT2 RS dominate track times, gotta love it. RWD, light balanced chassis, massive power, and a manual tranny,... pure simple, FAST.

Lol everything is updated on the actual ZR1 page, it just seems that the old stats are shown on the comparo page, for instance on this page it says 1.09.7 for Hockenheim and on the ZR1 page it says 1.08.3.

Vette/Viper  11y ago

@racerns The only time for a ZR1 on MPSC is the 7:19 @ 'Ring.Everything else is 2009 model...

And not to mention these:

20.4 s @ 256 kph
28.7 s @ 177 mph
17.6 s @ 152 mph

Comical..

The hockenheim time is on the ZR1 page, yet not on the comparison page, must be an error or something.
