The Corvette's primary rival was once the Dodge Viper, but after the 2010 model year, Chrysler's raging beast is no longer in production.
That leaves the Corvette to dominate in its price range, with more performance than Porsche and Nissan sports cars like the Boxster and 370Z in base trim.
The Z06 and ZR1 put the Nissan GT-R and Porsche 911 to bed as well, with handling, power, and sheer speed to spare.
The GT-R tops the Corvette in technology and sophisticated electronics while staying roughly equal in price, however.
The Porsche 911 is more exclusive and refined—but significantly more expensive.
