ZO6 v.s. 911 Turbo

Who do you guys think would win this race, a Corvette ZO6 against a 911 Turbo?

2002 BMW 325i- Black on Black
1967 Chevrolet Corvette 327/350 Convertible- Silver on Black
2006 Toyota Rav4 4x4- White on Grey
1986 John Deere 160- Green on yellow

From a stop, the Z06. From a roll, I'd say it would be a good race, and could go either way, depending alot on the Porsche driver's skill.


The word 'politics' is derived from the word 'poly', meaning 'many', and the word 'ticks', meaning 'blood sucking parasites'.

Apparently you have read absolutely nothing about the C6 Z06 then.

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

car and driver, and motortrend both said the z06 is faster in a straight line and pretty much the same speed in the twisties as a 911.. the main deal breaker was the porsche was more then 20k more expensive.

ConsumerReports recently compared some ultra-performance luxury sports cars (Z06 included), and the Carrera S (not even the Turbo) won overall in performance.

When you consider speed as in which is faster, of course the Z06 is faster.
It's a 7 liter V8 505hp bully (and 110lbs lighter than the CS!) compared to the CS which is only 3.8 liter flat 6 355hp.

The specs are:
Carrera S : 0-60: 4.4s 1/4 mile: 12.9s
Z06 : 0-60: 4.3s 1/4 mile: 12.3s

I feel the Z06 shouldn't even be compared with a Carrera!
And since they did, SHAME on the big bully, it takes so much engine capacity to produce an "impressive 505 hp figure"...and is ONLY fractions of a sec faster than a heavier machine with a smaller engine producing less hp. And reliability of the Z06 is rated POOR.

Go compare the Z06 with an M5 or M6!

I got those from CReports, they're for the Z06. I guess they did their own test runs.

If you search the net, you will get Z06 specs for 0-60 as low as 3.6s...who are you gonna believe?

The people who know how to work a clutch well enough to get a stock Z06 to do low to mid 11s.

Edit: I'm sorry, but any car that has the torque to start in 5th gear and go to 175mph in that one gear gets my respect more than the 911, good though it may be.

Gearing, son.. gearing.. go look at the gear ratios of the z06 compared to porsche.. much higher top speed in the z06.. and better highway MPG because of the very same reason... gearing.

How does the torque of that 7L compare to the 3.8 six?

And how come when people ask these questions they are vague as shit? WTF? used:
