2017 Ford GT vs. Its Competition

Ford GT Competition Series
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

Americans will hold a soft spot for the Ford GT, especially those who remember the Ford GT40's 1-2-3 finish at Le Mans in 1966.

But this car is extremely limited and there are more established supercars to choose from.

The Ferrari 488 GTB is top of mind as a charismatic, agile, balanced, and powerful rival, and it sports the much sought-after Prancing Horse logo.

The Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 makes great noises from its V-10 engine, and it, too, delivers real track performance.

The McLaren 570S and 650S are more livable alternatives, though also with great chops on the track.

The Porsche 911 Turbo offers great handling and composure to go with an iconic brand, and the price will be much lower than the that of the Ford GT.

The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 has similar traits and an even lower price, though without as much polish as its Porsche running mate.

Quick Specs
The 2017 Ford GT promises to be a driver's car with the racing pedigree and racing technology to put it among the most elite of today's supercars. Only a lucky few will ever sit behind the wheel.
7.8
The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette antes up stunning performance and great features; we're mixed on its boy-racer looks.
7.8
The 2017 Porsche 911 is a toe into the waters of modernity with a base turbo engine that gets good fuel economy. Don't be fooled; it's every bit the super car it always has been.
The 2017 Ferrari 488 GTB and 488 Spider are sensual beauties, with shattering performance amped up by a new turbocharged V-8.
It may be Lamborghini's entry-level model, but the Huracán is our choice over the Aventador.
