It’s a battle that’s played out numerous times since the 1960s: Ferrari versus Chevrolet Corvette versus Porsche 911. For today’s episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend collected the latest and greatest and did hot laps at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Will the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51 be deemed the best driver’s car of the three? Or will it be the 2014 Ferrari F12 berlinetta, or 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S? Read on to find out.
The Head 2 Head episode starts as Best Driver’s Car competitions often do, with hot laps at Mazda Raceway. Once we get lap times out of the Ferrari F12, Porsche 911, and Corvette Stingray, Motor Trend associate road test editor Carlos Lago and Pobst head out for some hot laps, where they discuss details like the Ferrari’s fabulous-sounding 731-hp naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V-12, the Corvette Stingray’s high performance for its bargain price tag, and the unflappability of the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S.
After the hot laps, it’s time for a mini World’s Greatest Drag Race, as the Ferrari, Chevy, and Porsche duke it out on an airport runway. So will the Best Driver’s Car retain its crown, or will the new Corvette Stingray or the F12 Berlinetta take its crown? Find out by watching the latest Head 2 Head below.
