2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51 Vs. 2014 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Vs. 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. No, I’m not talking about the Jacobin Reign of Terror, or anything to do with Charles Dickens. I’m talking about how the Motor Trend staff felt after wrapping up our 2013 Best Driver’s Car competition (powered by Peanut M&Ms).

For most of us, it’s our most anticipated event of the year. Really and truly the best of times for certified performance-junkie fast-car types. The Porsche 911 had just pulled off the first ever back-to-back win in BDC history. That means that, in two competitions just 12 months apart, Porsche‘s rear-engine magic ride had taken on and defeated 19 other competitors. In fact, the last car any of us had driven that would honestly give the 911 a run for its money was the Ferrari 458 Italia, the 2011 BDC champ.

The newest Porsche 911 has won every comparison test we’ve entered it in. The 991 is as dominant as sports cars get. More than a few of us left BDC wondering if there is any car that can beat it.
