Tell me that isn't bang for the buck performance. I wouldn't want to pull up next to the Turbo S at any light or drag strip unless I was either in another Turbo S or Veyron. Yes the Corvette is less expensive and a great bang for the buck car and I'm glad to see GM to continuing to improve it. However, sorry to burst you bubble, but it is just not in the same league. I know, I've owned both.
Really? Even though I'm not a huge fan of the Corvette it definitely is quite a bargain(Z06 and ZR1). A Turbo S is a great car and is a relative performance bargain but not in the Vette(or GTR)league.
And using a 0-60 time as your yardstick is really really narrow. A ZR1(and probably the new Z06) will run with a Turbo S on a track.
