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.

Lamborghini Countach: When Outrageous Was Possible

There was a time when an art form known as coachbuilding existed.
Back then, the coachbuilder did not have to answer to a CFO.
Back then, the coach builder did not have to compromise his vision due to government regulations.
Back then, the outrageous was possible.
The Lamborghini Countach could only have been born then.

Live the Super ’70s in a Ferrari 208 GT4

The Ferrari Dino 208 GT4 is a unique car. Overshadowed by its bigger brother, the 308 GT4, the 208 was originally created to skirt under the Italian tax levied on engines above two liters. What the 208 GT4 lacks in displacement it makes up for in sound and style.

For Bradley Price, designer and owner of Autodromo, the opportunity to acquire a practical “super car” of the ’70s with its famous wedge styling was too hard to ignore. After a year of ownership, Bradley can consistently be found escaping the city and revving the sweet-sounding V8 along the roads and hills of New York.

Jaguar E-Type Lightweight Recreated

Recreating a factory race car from the 1960s is no simple task—for Jason Len and his 1964 Jaguar E-Type, the challenges were no different.

The hours and materials to build something of this magnitude far exceed any dollar amount that could be recouped from the finished car’s sale, but this is irrelevant for Jason.

To him, the idea of owning and recreating this car is simply about chasing a dream. He devoted his life to Jaguars, so when it came to deciding whether or not to build the car, there was no other choice that could be made.

Beyond its glorious engine notes and inspiring visual presence, this car enjoys something that very few cars are allowed: a furiously fast pilot. After purchasing this car over 30 years ago, this E-type has never looked—or driven—better.
