Chevrolet Corvette Inches Closer To Mustang GT500, Not Enough

By  | 

The Ford Mustang GT500 is not going to be easy to beat but the Chevrolet Corvette is closing the gap between them and the Mustang GT500.

We have not heard from Chevrolet yet but it has been reported that Chevrolet might be looking to build a new Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 model that will come with an improved powertrain.

The current Chevrolet Corvette is able to deliver about 650hp but it is believed that the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 will be able to deliver close to 700hp when they are done with it.

As nice as that sound, the 2018 Ford Mustang GT500 will be coming in with an 800hp engine. In fact, they might even have problems trying to take down the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat which pushes out 707hp right now.However, the upgraded powertrain and upgraded design might still appeal to some of the consumers.

Chevrolet has not confirmed the rumors yet so take it with a pinch of salt if you can.
