In conclusion, buy a C6.
OMG no wai!!!1 A C6 that's at least 6 years newer and completely redesigned with a completely different engine is better than a car that's 6 years older, you don't say!

In all seriousness, you cannot use even 50% of any Z06's abilities off the track without breaking a dozen or more laws and potentially wrapping it around a tree. On the other hand, you can enjoy the excellent interior and road manners of the C7 every day rain or shine. Not to mention that the C7 looks infinitely better.

Because of that C7 > C6.

The C4 is a steaming pile of dog sh1t.

omg no way, C6 came out in 05, C5 stopped being made in 04, C6 LS3 debuted in 07 for the 08 model year so that's really at least 6 years right?

C7 > C6 yes,

C6Z > C7

eh, my math isn't good but the point still remains. The LS3 is a fantastic engine that's far more modern than the one in the C5Z and as such is a lot better.

I don't agree about C6Z being better than C7 but to each their own. They serve entirely different purposes. Doesn't change the fact that I really want a C6Z though.

Fin A.

If F2B really wants a vette, he'd be much better served buying even an LS2 C6 than any C5. Few grand more, but I bet insurance is similar and MPG is better.

That's how I would do it. The C6 is a superior (and much better looking) Corvette.

You'd get the C6 with LS2 over the C5Z? Any particular reason(s)? I'm asking cause I'm going to buy something next spring and have started my research.

That's what I don't like about the C5.

IIRC, the base C6 has almost as much hp as the C5 z06 - like within 10 hp.

I'd go C6, no question. The C5 is sexy, no doubt, but the C6 is ages ahead of it.

Well in that case a Z06 that is C5 probably has a higher insurance rate just because of the badge. A cam in either will make a beast of a car. Driving any C5 you can tell it's dated, the dash looks like a similar year generic mid sized GM car. The interior is much nicer in the C6. Modern stereo with a nice screen, as well as the fact that you can bolt on some Z06 / Grand sport style quarters and fenders / front bumper, and have one mean ass looking C6.

Drive both, make a decision. I work for Chevy so I drive all of these **** boxes regularly.

It's crazy how much better the C6 looks with the flares.






















In before someone takes "crazy" literally.
