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.

Corvette Z06 — I love this car...... It looks great, goes like stink, can pull 1.8G in a corner, is faster and handles better than most production Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Porches and comes in at one third the price of the nearest equivalent Ferrari.... with the added bonus that people love the Corvette. I get so many comments and people taking pictures.... Not many Ferrari or Lambo drivers get that! Its also 1 of only 20 Z06s on the road in the UK... exclusivity or what!

Z06 'vette — 505 Hp is awsome, a little crazy for a car that weighs like 505 pounds though. Very sporty and responsive. tons of creature comforts but not too practical for a place like Edmonton. Feels like I'm sitting on the pavement. I would get in way too much trouble owning this car - $$$

The Most Potent Z To Date — I do not technically own this car, but I have it in my possesion at my house while my parents are living in taipei, taiwan. the performance is amazing, as an example, at full throttle the tires loose traction between 6000-7000rpm and catch after the shift into 2nd. build quality is perfect so far it has only 1700 miles. Cost of ownership is alittle much, The tires are around $1000 for the front, you watch the fuel gauge drop from f to e and the brakes cost an average of $2500-$3000. the appearance is similar to the late C3 corvettes. You need to drive the car to realize how fun it really is.

07 Switched Out For An 08....better Interior. — FAST!!! Just swapped out of a Silver 07 for the Red 08. Great everyday supercar that can compete with some of todays top Italian and German sportscars. They have improved the interior significantly which was a big problem for past Vettes. Only upgrade I would make is an exhaust so you can really hear the power.

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.

7.0 Liters Of Viagra — i have driven them all and owned half of them. this car is raw power and sex appeal that is best controlled with an angry right foot. cars, like women, have qualities and attributes that are subjectively measured. but there is no denying that the Z06 must be universally respected. in the right hands there isn't a car made that it won't put it the rearview mirror. notes: save some money for rubber and moving violations.

although the car is very comfortable to drive with a great interior and sound system, the ride does not reflect the luxury car interior. The car really feels more at home on a track.

The Best Car Under 70,000 — the all new LS3 6.2 liter small block pumps out 30 more hp than the previous model bringing it to 430hp, which is easy to feel. You can feel the pin you to the seat acceleration all the way into the triple digits while the crossdrilled brake rotors effectively bring you to a stop in a more than timely fashion. The interior is black and red leather, which draws compliments every time i drive it. I have yet to find any other stock car that will run with it, save a Z06. The overall fee of the car is amazing. Chevy really put some time into the mid-production changes. Every one of them was just in the right place.

Wow!!!! — I can sum it up really (Fast). Fastest car I've ever driven. I feel like a king driving this race car. All heads turn when they see the Crystal Red Metallic Tintcoat and Cashmere interior.
