Default New Magazine test of C7 vs 911

Tuesday afternoon I observed a test between a C7 Z51 and a new 911-991 Carrera S by Americas top automotive periodical at Laguna Seca. Very tight security and also a 730 hp Euro exotic to test as well only not against these two.The C7 and 911 were driven by the ace driver that they normally use. Accurate results came about. You will all be thrilled with the results. It will be out in a month or so.

Why keep us in suspense? Just tell us! I don't think the 911S has presented too much of a challenge to Corvettes for several years now. The GT3 might be another matter.

I will never be able to observe if I divulge. All I can say now is that you will be pleased . You have no idea where the C7 lands but it is world class.

Its good that it will be getting a good review but other reviews are just so so in the performance area. Like many not getting close to the 3.9 0 60, which I think should be a little better than that. Hopefully the track course performance will be better. I would think with the better TQ curve it should feel stronger atleast.

It will be there soon. Even the testers couldn't believe how fast the C7 was.

It will be a huge transformation what he thought about the C6 from before. It's a new car with a whole different feel.

Yes because 0-60 is the true test for a sports car....
