There both manual and long geared, The GT4 is a stripped out track car designed to to exactly that, Track, What do you expect?

wow, but the Cayman beats the corvette absolutely on every single track despite being manual and long-geared and underpowered. Just underlines how amazing that chassis is. I mean, the corvette's chassis is already super world class.

Forgetting that this is just the base vette, and the vette is still 2 seconds quicker than the 718 pdk to 150mph also 120 mph in 11.5 so say, worse case scenario, even 2 seconds to do the extra 10mph to 130mph....2 seconds quicker. Should be base vette agsinsg base cayman and go through the model equivalent etc

The summary is inaccurate. The Corvette beats the Cayman under performance on every item except for the 0-200 kph time. It looks like the Corvette straight line speed should be switched with the Cayman. The Corvette would be at 2606 and the Cayman would be at 2594 making the verdict between the two very close to equal.
