The 2023 Corvette Z06, Ferrari 458, and Porsche GT3 are all high-performance sports cars with their unique strengths and features. The Corvette Z06 is powered by a 5.5-liter V8 engine with 670 horsepower, making it the most powerful Corvette ever made. It also features a new dual-clutch eight-speed transmission and a revised suspension system. The Ferrari 458 is a classic Italian supercar that delivers an exhilarating driving experience with its 4.5-liter V8 engine, producing 562 horsepower. The car is known for its precise handling, lightweight body, and stylish design. The Porsche GT3 is a track-focused sports car that is powered by a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-six engine, producing 502 horsepower. It is known for its precise handling, aerodynamics, and overall performance. Each car offers a unique driving experience, and it ultimately comes down to personal preference and intended use. Here are all three compared side by side!
Jay Leno and Master Corvette Restorer Mike McCluskey take a closer look at a fully restored 1954 Corvette. This particular Corvette is one of the best graded / reviewed Corvettes in recent history. In the video you find out what makes it so special…and also how it holds up today.
TheSmokingTire – We know the C8 Corvette has what it takes to be great: a torquey, powerful engine mounted low and in the middle, quick, accurate steering, a brilliant ride, lots of features, and the performance of a $150,000 Porsche 911 for around half that. Plus, even in the regular “coupe” the targa roof is, (and for the last 50 years or so has been) removable; a true “best of both worlds” scenario. For that reason, enthusiasts, and even Corvette owners as I formerly was, look down on the Convertibles. Historically, the soft top not only changes the fabulous coupe lines, but also prevents you from attending some track days – cementing the “old guy having a crisis” image. Now, taking a page *directly* from the Ferrari 458 Playbook, the Corvette Convertible features a well-insulated power-retractable hardtop that looks great raised, looks even better lowered, and – get this – doesn’t intrude on the rear trunk space in any way. Remember 2021 – it was the year the Corvette Convertible finally got cool.
