For 2015 the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is the most powerful production car ever produced from General Motors. The 2015 Z06 has a base price of $78,995, the convertible’s base price is $83,995. While that may not be affordable for many, it is definetly a deal over its competitors.
The Corvette has often been compared to the pride of Germany, the Porsche 911. The most powerful 911 is the Turbo S rated at 560 hp and 516 lb-ft and costs $182,000, while the Z06 costs less than half and is rated at 650 hp and 650 lb-ft. Now that sounds like a value there.
Here is a chart for comparison, when we get complete road tests results, we’ll add skidpad rating to the chart. While the Dodge Challenger Hellcat is the best HP/Dollar value, it can’t compete on a road course and we wanted to add for those looking for Raw Horsepower.
|Chevrolet Corvette Z06||78,995||650|
|Audi R8 V10||173,500||550|
|Dodge Challenger Hellcat (not a track car)||59,995||707|
|Ferrari 458 Italia||233,509||507|
|Ford GT (2005)||150,000||550|
|Porsche 911 Turbo S||182,700||560|
|Porsche Cayman GTS||75,200||340|
