I Love It, I Really Do, The Siblings Love It, So Im A Keeping It! — This car is a very fun car, it may be expensive, but she is my other women! she has always been there, she has always let me process my anger threw her pedals, and her gears. Her name is Treasure, for the treasure of my life that rides next to me all the time, my girlfriend, love you babe!!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It is a very fun drag car. lots of power, lots of speed

Cons: It takes up space, and alot of money has been put into it, and i just keep breaking it.

I Am Extremely Impressed With The Car. — If looking for a performance car that is also a great daily driver, you can't beat this car. For a car with 430HP the mileage of 19-24MPG is excellent. Outstanding cargo capacity with the hatch rear window. Love to remove the top and just get on the road.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Love the feeling driving this car.

Cons: Not much to complain about. Only issue is a minor noise from the removable top.

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.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

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

Cons: Fairly common, which I hate. The seats stink.

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.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: 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.

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.

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.

Fantastic car, problem-free, power beyond any normal drivers needs, handling capability breeds confidence for any driver. Navigation system and Bose radio/CD/DVD system isnt the best. Extremely good looking car, too. Biggest negative of the whole car is the limited visibility all around when seated in/driving the car.

Power Ranked 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 3LT Coupe RWD better.
"2018 Corvette engine is even more powerful than the 2012 was/is. Insane performance capability for the price. Blows exotic foreign cars away for a fraction of their price."
Looks/Style Ranked 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 3LT Coupe RWD worse.
"The 2012 Corvette looks streamlined, smooth, and can be dressed up or dressed down--it can be an aggressive track monster or a polished boulevard cruiser. I think the 2018 (all C7 Corvettes actually) Corvettes look much more aggressive in all models/styles with their angular body style."
Back Seats Ranked 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 3LT Coupe RWD worse.
"Obviously a Corvette has no back seats, but the survey would NOT allow me to bypass the question! (Poorly done, survey programmer.)"
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 3LT Coupe RWD worse.
"Interior space in the 2012 car is slightly larger overall than the 2018. Even the seats in the 2012 are narrower, making the cockpit a little tighter."
Family Car Ranked 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 3LT Coupe RWD worse.
"Of course, NEITHER Corvette is a family car in reality, but again, I could NOT skip this question."
