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.
There is a reason the Veyron is 1.5 million dollars. And it is not its 0-60 time.

Also, it would be helpful to indicate which Corvette you have owned when talking about performance.

On a final note, I would indeed feel comfortable pulling up next to a $165k Turbo S in a $90k GTR.
