Volkswagen Golf R vs BMW M235i [Chris Harris On Cars]

1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427 vs 1968 Porsche 911L! [Head 2 Head Episode 57]

On this special episode of Head 2 Head we jump in the way-back machine.

The 1960’s were the defining decade of the modern era. From the Cuban Missile Crisis, to the assassinations of JFK, RFK and MLK, to the hippie counter culture, to a man standing on the moon, few ten-year spans in history have seen as much tumult. Fewer still have seen as many awesome cars.

On this episode we look at two of the most important cars from the 1960’s: a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427 Tri-Power and a 1968 Porsche 911L.

The Corvette is all sound and fury, with a monster motor that still feels quick today and a soundtrack to die for. The 911, by way of contrast, is the more nimble driver-focused sports car solution, with steering feel that modern cars can only dream of. But one of these two is better than the other.

Watch to find out which!
