The race is what you can expect when these two go at it with equal drivers, and stock cars.
TT if I'm not mistaken is 4wd. Definite advantage when launching, which is what you see in the vid. But once the advantage of the launching is lost, the Z shouldn't give up any ground right up to the Z's top speed at about mid 170's. TT then should pull about another 15 mph before it reaches it's limit.
This is with a non X50'd TT. With the extra 50 ponies the X50 provides, the TT should pull slowly right through to the top.

Is it just me or did the porsche driver hit the rev limiter twice?

That's the Vette hitting the rev limiter in 3rd and 4th.

I know all to well the distinct sound of a Z bouncing off the limiter.....*shiner*
