3rd place: Jaguar XKR-S (48/60 points, 80 %)

Best acceleration thanks to the most powerful engine, limited traction at corner exits. Great tourer for long distances.

2nd place: Porsche 911 Carrera S PDK (52/60 points, 87 %)

The 911 is still the best mixture of comfort and sportiness. This particular testcar was 1,4 s slower around the HHR as the Supertested one was with PCCB, sport suspension and 10 mm wider rear wheels. Also, it's only second fastest in this comparison...


  • Power, torque: 400 hp, 440 Nm
  • Gearbox: 7-speed-PDK
  • Weight: 1507 kg
  • 0–100 km/h: 4,4 s

1st place: Corvette C7 Stingray (57/60 points, 95 %)

On the track the new Stingray is on the same level with the previous Z06 model. Fantastic power-and-performance-to-price ratio. Negativum: the manual gearbox of this pre-production testcar was far from precise.


  • Power, torque: 466 hp, 630 Nm
