Absolutely Love It — I've bought my 2008 ZO6 off the showroom floor in May 2009, and currently have just over 8,000 miles on her. Can't say enough nice things about it. It goes like hell and is a ball to drive. The only area I'd like to see improvement is the sound dampening, still a lot of road noise, especially on worn concrete interstate roads. On new blacktop it's an absolute dream.

Pros

Gorgeous Exterior and Interior, Mind Blowing Performance. Under 100k. Outperform's 95% of your 150k-300k exotic cars.

Cons

Stock OEM Navigation system & BOSE surround sound system. Given the price tag of 2k, I would not rate this Nav system as top quality when you can go aftermarket and get triple the quality for half the price.

2008 Corvette Z06 — *Exterior: Beautiful exterior, wide body, has that stealth super car appearance and slammed aggressive stance. *Interior: Interior is very classy with beautifully lighted guages, glossy carbon fiber center console and comfy leather seats. The dash is wrapped in leather too. *Performance: Tires are real thick and meaty which grip the road amazing. The engine is 7.0 liter LS7, V8, 505hp. The weight is around 2950 pounds which is unbelievably light for a car of this caliber. This car has been taken to a 10.9 sec quarter mile bone stock which is mind blowing.

2008 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe — First of all, this car is stunningly beautiful! It drives like a dream and is scary fast. I absolutely love driving this car. So far, I haven't had one single problem with it. This is by far the best car I have ever owned. Custom modifications are abundantly available......so much so that it can quickly become an addiction. So far, I've added custom interior leather, cold air intake, and a Borla Exhaust. You only live once....so, go for it!

My 15 Year Wait Is Over! — After a long and arduous battle through the automotive jungle I have survived to tame the wild beast of legend. The Chevrolet Corvette is the most amazing car on American roads today, it is arguably the most fascinating car the american public can own and drive that is totally ours, built for the last 60 years to be enjoyed worldwide but mostly for us hmble americans. Great gas mileage, huge storage space and acceleration that rivals anything from Euorpe. Good job Chevrolet! and think it can be parked right beside the Chevy Cruze and get a $30.00 oil change by the same mechanic.

Fantastic Performance Sports Car — I have the base model with 'only' 430 horses, but oh my gosh this thing is quick. It might be the tires are worn, but with TC on, a bit of throttle and it fishtails all over the road. And with it off, well, let's just say I've been sideways more often than I can count. This ain't no Camry, you can't just slam the pedal down (unless you're aimed straight). In other words, I'm having a lot of fun. It looks great and the leather interior is really nice. I know there is too much interior plastic for some, but it doesn't bother me. I fixed the squeaky roof easily enough, but haven't found the other rattles. Mileage has been a respectable 21-25 MPG. Love it.

Fun For A Weekend...as Far As The "recommendation" Otherwise "no" - 50 Grand Could Be Better Spent — fun to drive; banks corners nice and tight but don't let go. decent acceleration from dead stop. inside cheap and plastic. i actually wanted to use the stereo, which sucked because the sound of the engine was wussy. possibly due to care/abuse- tremors at hundy on a smooth road.

Pros

Acceleration, Braking, Looks, Lots of Leather, Exhaust, and a roadster that is not ashamed to sport a soft top

Cons

Still flimsy in some areas, why can’t I open the door while the car is running?

After Much Needed Tweeks, I Can Actually Say I Like It A Lot — Alright I was not really impressed with the C6 when it cam out, so how in the world can I like this years model even though it is still a C6. Simple, much needed tweaks, the steering feels less artificial, and finally it has an interior that PETA would scream over, but for all I car those vegans can go stuff themselves. The exhaust bellows at low RPMs, and Snarls at the Higher RPMs, it just sounds great. Secondly I liked this one better because it had a real 6-speed manual, not a half-assed automatic with thoughtful paddles. You just can’t help but hold the throttle down for longer than 8 seconds, but by then even spacious suburban boulevards get very small very quickly. This is where the breaks do their magic. So what if it only has 400 hp, yes I know the Z06, and ZR1 have more power, but I am convinced that I can still terrify myself in the base model, considering the more professional car journalist from Car and Driver and Road and track claim that the corvette has a tendency to have the tail slide out from behind you. Even if I am a better driver than the average Californian motorist, by professional race driver standards, I am still an amateur. Before I step into a ZR1, I probably should learn how to pull a car out of a spin while doing north of 100mph. One thing I live the most is the fact that the corvette can get about 30 mpg on the freeway, so lets do a little math here, this car has 400 hp and gets 30 mpg, while a less fun to drive and look at Prius gets at best 48 mpg on an anemic, that is if you drive it in a way that makes most grandma’s look like Burt Reynolds in a Trans Am. The electric engine and gas moped engine only manage to make a pitiful 110 hp. The Corvette and Prius do not have that big of a weight difference either, so I guess you could say that the corvette is more efficient than the Prius, What? Did I just Say that? One last thing that I liked about this Vette was the fact that it still uses a cloth top. Now I know about all the great advantages of a retractable hard top, I know that they allow for a stronger body, and a quieter cabin, but frankly, I don’t like the way most of them look. I’m sure that this car will not end up being the most reliable, cost effective car. But these cars are not aimed at those who drive Toyota Corollas, Hyundai’s, KIAs, and the like. Those cars are just too sensible and boring. Cars like the Corvette are built for those who still have that little kid inside them, and for those who actually like cars. Corvettes are not for those who make their decision on buying a car based on what consumer reports say and they are not for those who what to get from point A to point B. If you decide to buy a Corvette, make me proud and occasionally listen to your antisocial personality and bury your right foot and hold it there for a while. Those who drive cars like these slowly deserve to have them stolen.

Light weight, 505 hp with a warranty, sexy, great fuel mileage (30+
highway).

Cons

Expensive, having to deal with GM.

2008 Jetstream Blue Corvette Z06 — Performance for the price, there is no equal. It'll run circles around the exotics for a fraction of the price. Build quality is pretty decent, however my former 07 C6 was built better than my current 08 Z06.

Classic Corvette Fun — Purchased slightly used with one prior owner. Very low mileage and in great condition. Will use as a pleasure driver so the mileage should remain low. The C6 Corvettes have not changed very much from model year to model year so a 2008 -09 -10 are all pretty much the same.

Fun Car — Love the speed and handling. Could use better quality materials inside. reliable car though for how exotic it is. Gas mileage is also better than expected for a car with this much power and performance. Would definitely recommend this vehicle to someone looking for raw power.
