Drag Race: Porsche 911 GT3 3.8 vs Tuned Corvette Z06 [Video]
As a track car, the 997 GT3 is one of Porsche's finest hours. Devoid of any luxury fittings, the car will lap the Nurburgring in about the same time as a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640. But show it a straight piece of road and the fun kind of ends.
With 435 hp at its disposal, it's not exactly slow, but lacks the high torque to take on a 7-liter Corvette. The Z06 should have a very muscular 500 hp, but it's been tuned with new headers, no cats and an Akrapovic final exhaust and air intake, so it really does leave the 911 for dead.
Impressive as that may be, we'd probably still have the Porsche because that 'Vette interior is cringe-worthy.
