The C7 auto should get highway milage close to this.
You can get a manual for the Carrera S. And its 'automatic' is a PDK which is essentially an automated manual, so there isn't really any fuel efficiency lost there.

And they aren't all that close in hp. 400 vs 460 (or 465), thats a 15% difference. Its pretty substantial, and when you consider that the C7 gets better fuel economy ... well, lets just say I'm impressed. With the Stingray. Because no other car that I can think of makes that much power, while being that fuel efficient.
