The new 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray isn’t just the latest stage in the Corvette’s evolution into a world-class supercar. Instead, it’s a reminder that the latest generation of plastic fantastic can punch well above its weight class. For instance, the new hybrid Corvette is quick enough to compete with several high-dollar hybrid hypercars. Check out how the new E-Ray stacks up against these new-age track weapons, like the McLaren P1 and Ferrari SF90 Stradale.

How fast is the new Corvette E-Ray?

Chevrolet says that the 2024 E-Ray has a top speed of about 180 mph, but its acceleration figures are nothing short of supercar status. The hybrid Corvette will hit 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds on its way to a 10.5-second quarter mile.

Speed like that doesn’t just make the E-Ray quicker to 60 mph than a C8 Z06; it makes it the quickest Corvette ever. The new ‘Vette’s savage speed is courtesy of a combined 655 horsepower and grippy eAWD. In fact, the new Corvette’s 160-horsepower front-mounted electric motor can decide where it wants to send power for optimal launches and cornering.  Moreover, the new hybrid model is quick enough to contend with several international hybrid hypercars. 

Is the SF90 a hypercar or a supercar?

The 2023 Ferrari SF90 Stradale is the marque’s quickest hybrid hypercar. Specifically, the SF90 hit 60 mph in just 2.3 seconds in testing. That makes the hybrid model as fast in a straight-line sprint to 60 as the purpose-built Dodge SRT Demon. 

According to Car and Driver, the Ferrari SF90 is capable of a 60 mph sprint in as little as 2.0 seconds. Moreover, a quarter-mile time of 9.9 seconds means the 986-horsepower AWD hybrid hypercar is one of the quickest non-EV cars on the market. Furthermore, with a top speed of 211 mph, the Ferrari SF90 is much faster than the E-Ray in terms of top speed. 

Does the new Corvette E-Ray accelerate faster than the Porsche 918?

The Porsche 918 Spyder was the fastest-accelerating production car in the world when it hit the streets. With a 0-60 mph time as brief as 2.2 seconds, the 918 is quicker than a new Corvette E-Ray. Moreover, with a top speed of 214 mph, the 918 Spyder is one of the fastest hybrid hypercars ever. 

How fast can a McLaren P1 go?

The McLaren P1 appeared in the market quickly and disappeared just as abruptly. The only thing quicker than its sales cycle is the P1 itself, which tops out at around 217 mph and hits 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds. 

That’s one point for the new Corvette E-Ray; both cars hit 60 mph in about two and a half seconds. Of course, the P1 is much faster in terms of top end. Still, wouldn’t you expect that from a car with a new price of around 1.15 million dollars?
