Corvette ZR1 Wants To Rush Porsche 918’s Downfall!

By  | 

There have been a lot of talks linking Corvette to make the switch to mid-engine and if this is true, then Corvette is not planning to leave the front-engine setup quietly.

The all-new Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 had just made its unveiling and it promises to offer the ultimate track performance around. With a 6.2L V8 that can pump out 755hp resting under its hood, we can truly expect the new ZR1 to outpace its predecessor.

For Chevrolet, they believe that the ZR1 can exceed expectations and they want to prove this point by arranging a Nurburgring lap attempt with the vehicle as soon as possible.

The attempt is expected to happen in the coming months and Chevrolet is predicting the car to achieve a lap time that is under 7 seconds. Such a target means that Chevrolet is hoping to compete with the Porsche 918 lap time and beating that will certainly give the Corvette brand a big boost.

It won’t be a simple task as the Porsche 918 is still considered as an automotive marvel in spite of its age. Can the Corvette ZR1 beat its German counterpart?
