Pros

For the price, it's fast and gorgeous and a real head turner.

Cons

Fairly common, which I hate. The seats stink.

2012 Corvette Gs Coupe — I dreamed about having a Corvette my whole life. I came from somewhat meager beginnings and it finally happened a few years ago. It was like dream. I almost cried upon delivery. It a gorgeous car that many would envy. It's mostly not disappointed me. The car handles like nothing I've ever driven personally. I'm a car guy, but not a mechanic and not a race car driver. I like to drive. The acceleration will pin you back in the seat and give your passenger a reason to check his drawers. The gas mileage is great on the highway, like seriously 27. Around town, I can't seem to get more than about 15. I guess i like to punch it a little. What can I say? I have had ZERO maintenance costs on it. The oil changes are "covered" by the dealer for the first few years. Since I've only driven it a few thousand miles, I'm not sure that's any feat. It turns a lot of heads and I get lots of compliments on it. It's the crystal red with a cashmere (camel) interior. It's stunning. Looks wise, I love this car. The seats are the worst thing about the car. I'm a tall guy, not a giant, but over 6'2" and around 200#s. I fit behind the wheel with no problem and room to spare (which is rare). However, I like the seat low and it bottoms out on the motor underneath. ANNOYING. It's not very comfortable on long or short trips. Sometimes I suffer through it and other times, I don't feel like it. The other thing I don't like about the car is that it seems like the car of an older man. I guess we all dream of these things but really can't afford them until the later years, once established. Is that wrong of me to say? It's just my observation.

Low Maintenance, Smooth ride, Options, Corvette!, stopping power, gas mileage(believe it or not), sound, RESIDUAL VALUE LS3 engine is SOLID

Cons

Too many produced, not exotic.  Just an excellent all around sports car.

Great On Gas, Easy On The Eyes, Excellent Residual Value — No brainier here Corvette because its a Corvette Simple sports cars that are a thrill especially for the money. Residual value is as good as hondas and toyotas in most cases. Unless you wreck it. Test drive one, see whats its all about. Low maintenance costs makes this a winner in my books.

Pros

After 9 Corvettes over 35+ years, the Grand Sport Roadster is the top of the heap!

Cons

Stock Goodyear Tires aren't very good and noisy.  Can hardly wait for them to wear out so that I can get Michelins.

Fun In The Sun! — Like everything except the Goodyear Tires. Fortunately Corvette has gone to Michelins in the C7s. The GS is fast, economical, comfortable and definitely an eye catcher. I used this as a NCCC Rocky Mountain show competition car and won the title for 2012 and 2013.
