appearence is great, quiet ride, smooth looking

Cons

price tag, on-star

Bottom Line.. Its A Great Car, Well Worth The Investment — performance is great... acceleration is also really good, I like the fact that I can just slightly tap the gas and be flying down the road at 100 mph.. braking is just as well as the car itself, handles like a charm.. handling.. for those that don't own one.. to me it seems like it oversteers, but not by much just enough. All of this comes with a heavy price tag.. 70,000 plus.. depends on model though, if you want something with more power.. it'll put a dent in your wallet at 100,000+...

Performance, 22+MPG, styling, fun to drive.

Just a little hard to get in and out of for an old guy like me. 63 and feeling younger every time I drive the Vette

A Great Car To Own, Dosn't Depreciate Very Much And Keeps On Pleasing. — I can't say anything bad about the 08 Vette. I wanted the dual mode exhaust, a $1200 option but was disappointed with it. You get a little more sound on start up and if you go over 3500 RPMs. Last wseek I found a product called mild to wild on EBay. About $100 and another $50 to have it installed. It comes with a remote that allows you to switch from closed to full time open any time you want to. Now it sounds like a Corvette should. I never turn it off. I got the car in October 08 and drove it mostly on weekends. Now you can't get me out of the car. The car looks great, performs great and now it sounds great. If you have dual mode, get this kit.

Holy Crap! — 0-60 in 3.4 seconds is a rush and 0-100 in 8 seconds is also freaking awesome! For having quite a drag car set up, it handles like a BMW or better! It is insane! Fish tailing and spinning it out is as thrilling as anything!!!

My '08 Is Great! — Great acceleration, braking, and handling - a blast to drive! Never fails to put a smile on my face when I get behind the wheel! Just wish our summers were longer as it is a sad day when it gets parked for the winter.

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!

Corvette Z06 — Performance - Simply said.... PERFECT! Great Speed/Acceleration ratio. Build Quality - Great. After a little bump with a small pole it didn't damage the car as bad as I thought. Appearance - Just look at the car. BEAUTIFUL! Cost - Too much I'm afraid. But my friend has one so I am happy that I can drive it ^^ Fun Factor - Chick magnet... Need I say more?

Pros

505 Raging American Horses and the ride is quite comfortable at 185mph (300kph)

Cons

only available in left-hand drive and the cheap interior.

Gumball Gets Another Corvette Z06!!! — What can I say? It's an amazing car, I raced it at Donnington Park with a few friends in the summer and it was amazing. Can't wait until August 2009, I'll be driving the same car from 'Coast to Coast' in America in the Gumball Rally 3000 2009. Only two drawbacks, the interior plastics sound very cheap and hollow and it's only available in left-hand drive (Which is a good case when i'm in America, but extremly difficult to drive on the U.K's streets.)

2008 Corvette — Z51, 3LT Titaniaum/ebony interior, competition grey wheels, Z06 spoiler, Orange FRC's, ECS Paxton SC600 Supercharger Kit, Speed Density Tune, American Racing 1 7/8" Headers and best of all.... 28-30 MPG Highway... Granted no the best for IKEA trip and grocery hauling, amazing to drive plus the top comes off!

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.
