You missed the point. The US and Euro car markets are very different, for the price of a 4 cylinder economical car in Europe you could buy a Vette in
the US where fuel is much cheaper and you don't have to worry about fuel consumption so much.
The 911 Turbo is a much more expensive car than the Vette. The ZR-1 Vette is pretty fast. The 2012 Nissan GT-R blasts both of them and is cheaper than
the 911 Turbo.
Compare the Vette against some similarly priced Euro cars.
Back to fuel consumption. Generally US made cars are bigger and cheaper than European cars because fuel is much less expensive and US consumers buy
them so they make them.
The big 3 Ford, GM and Chrysler need to lift their game and build better cars to compete with the Europeans and Japanese car makers in terms of
engineering, design and build quality. The Chevy Volt is new and a good attempt at placing more emphasis on fuel economy or you could buy a Toyota
Prius, there are economical options for US consumers but they don't place as much importance on economy.
PS Stick twin turbos or a supercharger on the Vette and see how it goes. Turbocharging can effectively increase the power of the engine that's why we
love it! And that's why the 911 Turbo is so fast, get a non turbo 911 and it isn't that fast but still very expensive.
2013 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 0-60mph 3.4 seconds top speed 205mph $112,600 USD.
2013 Porsche 911 Turbo 0-60mph 3.5 seconds top speed 194mph $137,500 USD.
You might want the 911 Turbo S to get in front of the Vette ZR-1 but it will cost you. The base model Corvette is less than half the price of the 911
Turbo at $49,600 USD.
2013 Nissan GT-R 0-60mph 2.7 seconds (insane) top speed 196mph $96,820 USD.
Or get the GT-R.
