    • 2020 Porsche 992 Carrera S vs. Chevrolet C7 Corvette Grand Sport roadcourse laptime battle

      Great to see the new 992 Porsche 911 in comparisons and this one comes from the Germans at Sport Auto. Now keep in mind Sport Auto pretty much always has the Porsche come out on top so maybe there is some German bias at work in their comparisons.


      They test both cars on the Hockenheim GP course.

      C7 Grand Sport: 1:54.1
      992 C2S: 1:53.3

      An impressive victory there although obviously the C7 is dated and the 992 is brand new. The C8 will likely reverse this result and then some although by then we will also see 992 GT3 and Turbo models.

      A very good start for the 992 though.

        They definitely will pump up the power on the higher end models.

        Buddy of mine just went to mainland to pick up a new ZR1. 755hp. He’s most excited about stealth cold start mode that will not upset neighbors

        With how loud my M3 and Carrera are on cold start I can definitely identify with this.

        Same here LOL! Fortunately I close the valves on my M4 during cold start, that does wonders! Love the JB4 Click here to enlarge

        He has a GT3-RS with BBI exhaust and the neighbors do not care for it too much.
