Default Any C6 owners change their minds after seeing the C7??????

I was really on the fence about the C7 until now but after I saw it in person, sat in it, and after reading all the great reviews, I'm kinda getting the bug to get one.

However, I wont pay full price and would want to see every color and option in person so I could choose which one I want, so it's going to be awhile for sure. I'm still plenty happy with my C6 so it's not that big a deal to wait for a few years...

Any other C6 guys feeling this way.

I haven't seen it in person yet, so I can't see it from your perspective yet. But as of now - no.

Well, I'll tell ya Randy, I have not yet had a chance to test drive one.

However, I do have an open mind. But, with that said, I'd have to be very impressed with the handling, as well as the appearance, etc., before I'd give up my '13 GS which I really love.

Not only that, I'd have to be willing to give up the classic body styling and signature Corvette rear end, and that will take some doing for me as well.

Also, I never buy anything released in it's first year of production. So, if I do go for a C7, it wouldn't be until next year for a 2015.

I won't buy one. I don't like what GM has done to it.

Wrong forum. This is about the C7, which has its own forum.

I saw the C7 for the first time this past weekend. I like the exterior of the C6 better. The C7 interior was better than the C6 in my opinion.

Have yet to see one in person. If I do like it and I suspect I will from what I have seen in pictures, I would wait until they come out with their version of the Z06.

I thought I would love it when I saw the first pictures and knew it when I saw it in person. But I'm waiting for the 2016 model in two years to get the bugs worked out and a better deal on pricing.

That's my plan also, I don't have to be the first guy on the block to get one.

Absolutely!

Love the c6 I own as well as the new c7.

I'll buy a new one down the road for sure and I still enjoy my beautiful c6.

It was after seeing the C7 in person that I decided to but my 427. I really don't care for the C7 from any angle.

Default Keeping the C6

Got to see the ones they brought to the NCRS National meet in Hampton Roads 2 weeks ago. They let you sit in the maroon one. The Torch Red one was the experimental model.
After seeing it in person, I would give seat comfort a big plus over the C6 (especially the passenger side grab handle on the console). That said, I thought the outside was too gimmicky for me. Also, the
silhouette still looks like a C6. Unsure if I like the dash or not.
Maybe in a couple of years it will grow on me.

I am waiting to see it in person. But I am loving one like your avatar Walt. That white and black combo looks killer. Wonder why I like it so much?

Torn between the C7 and Aston Martin....
Haven't seen it in person yet, But I would wait for a higher HP version if I were to get a C7.
Not sure I could ever sell my C6

I haven't seen it in person, but I decided to go ahead and get my G.S. in May, since the back of the C7 still hansn't grown on me yet.
Maybe down the road.

I love my big booty car.

I don't think so. The OP wants to know what present C6 owners are feeling regarding a C7 purchase. Seems to me the C6 forum is the correct venue.
