  • C8’s Competition — Or At Least The Major One In Terms of Sales

    We are starting to see, thanks to Jalopnik, the leaked photos of the next version of the Porsche 911 (which will officially debut in a couple of weeks at the LA Auto Show.

    Well, to be respectful with my comments, the newest Porsche is more of the same. Or, ho-hum...

    Please share what you thinking.

    Anyone know if this is the midengined 911 like they raced this year? I think that Porsche has found out that the Cayman (midengined) is faster than the rear engine 911 given equal horsepower. Of course, the ME Corvette will be faster than both.

      To get 470 HP in a 911, one starts at $120,700. The ME will exceed that amount of power, and while we disagree on pricing, 99% of us are saying it will start at $85K or less, about 2/3’s of us saying it will start at under $70K.

      I will join in chorus, not being sarcastic at all, that Porsche makes a truly excellent 911. Thankfully for us Corvette lovers, it is a) overpriced, and even more important to me personally, b) needs a “massive looks makeover.”

        Porsche, the rear of your next 911 looks worse to me. This sentiment is echoed on at least one Porsche forum

          I think the Caymen is a good looking car. i prefer its looks to the 911. Just so expensive when fully optioned at over $105K.

          The rear of the new 911 is not good looking in my opinion.

            Well I cannot really say at this point. Now when the "reveal" is done and we see hp and maybe some preliminary testing/performance data will get a better idea. What I am thinking is that some of the cars that are thought of now to be "competitor's" to the Corvette no longer will be because GM has stepped up the game so much with the new generation and evolvement of the pinnacle GM sports car.

            Hope that made sense.

                We are guessing, though please correct us if we are wrong, that you are not going to then trade Tribute in on one.

                  I hadn't considered that, but now that you mention it... NO!

                    I suppose. Porsche 911 or whatever. Probably a great car. I guess there are folks that make such choices. Doesn't cross my mind.

                      I reallylike the 911 since the 991 version. I think its a great looking 2 plus 2.

                      It is a big car ...and its an iconic sports car.

                      That said...i test drove one awhile back at the local porsche dealer. It was nice. I really liked the tight light initial turn in. That was an interesting attribute and along with the dct transmission i am so hot on the c8 z51 dct.

                      there is nothing like the raw visceral power of an american v8.

                      Acceleration times with the porsche pdk may offer really excellent launch times but after that the american v8 s have all the hp and tq.

                      The latest turbo 3.0 flat soxes in the 991.2 and upcoming 992 im sure are improved but never better than the a,erican v8.

                      of course the service costs for porsches can get ridiculous unless you are under warranty or use an indy shop for work. That said parts costs are quite high.

                      i personally prefer the durability of american built gm products such as the corvette.

                      corvettes are quite often admired by the everyman and woman..

                      the corvettes are affordable and make a statment about being a proud american.

                      the fact that on the road course times usually have corvettes as the fastest in their class and above,

                      the corvette is a giant slayer...

                        just to add to my post previously I would consider and it may not even be a possibility but if FCA comes out with another Viper. It has always interested me but the previous one was a little less refined that what I would prefer. That being said from the US Big 3 side it would be the only competitor unless GM has a Caddy variant that they offer in the future who knows. Just my .02.

                          Boy, not a fan of the restyled stern. If I were looking to pick up a 911, I think I'd hurry up and get the current one. I've read, though, the new one will be pushing the hp up a bit, so maybe if she's a spirited one it won't matter if her tail is ugly.

                          I really wish they'd allow the full 911 range of engines in the Cayman. It's a better looking/driving car. IMO eventually the 911 production car is going to move to ME.

                            That is an interesting theory, one I also believe is probable. How ironic that would be, if Porsche were to follow Corvette with their 911 becoming an ME.

                            ​​​​Delightful irony that would be.

                              No competition for me, for I am tried and true; not saying others should be that way, but ever since I saw my first Corvette.
