But as far as your implication that "The Corvette Z06 will take sales away from the Porsche".
Non-Sense. The Nissan GTR was pushing 530HP in 2010, had a nurburgring lap time record for a production car and was delivering sub 3 second 0-60MPH runs for sub 90 thousand dollars while a $140K Porsche 911 Turbo had 480HP and did 0-60 in 3.5 seconds. The GTR was, by every performance metric measurable, a much "better car". And it did nothing to take away sales from Porsche.

For a very simple reason: People buying a Porsche want a Porsche. They don't want a hopped up Nissan or a fast Chevy. Porsche Drivers are not race car drivers, they are dentists, or lawyers, or doctors, or business owners or managers and they do not make a living from their lap times...

I am sure the new Z06 will be much faster than the 2015 Porsche, but so is the new Dodge Viper, or the new GTR, isn't it?
If Porsche owners are lawyer's, dentist, or business owner... Then what are corvette owners? Trash picker?

I have a friend that has owned 6 Porsche's and bought a 2017 Z06 M7 new and said it was the funniest car he has owned. In this case it did take a sale away from Porsche. Mainly because he could get the Z06 in an M7.
