The C7 Corvette Z06 is a front engine, rear-wheel drive coupe powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged engine. Bone stock, the GM flagship can produce 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque.

This Z06 is modified with an aftermarket cold air intake.

In factory trim, the Porsche 911 Turbo S utilizes a twin turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 engine to produce 640hp and 590 lb.-ft. of torque. A rear-engine, all-wheel drive coupe, the Porsche tips the scale at 3,646-pounds. The stock Turbo S can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.2-seconds and has a top speed of 205 mph. This beautiful Bavarian can blast through the quarter-mile in 10.1-seconds @ 137 mph. Wow, that’s going to be a lot for this Corvette to handle.
