I am with you. And I don't like putting Camaro style tail lights on a vette.

I'd get the 13 zr1. I've always had the rule to never buy the first year production run of any car. Always wait at least a year to let them work the kinks out. If you waited you would probably have to wait until 2015!

I'm driving the C6 ZR1 until the C7 ZR1 comes out.

I agree. Bought my first '05 at 27. I thought I was young. Now waiting patiently for a z07 @ 33.

I ended buying a 2009 ZR1 last month that was bought new with 22 miles on 10-15-2010;
Car still like new with 2245 miles.
Instead of a C-7. Reason being I am 50k off sticker with the buy at 69,500. I feel it is not going to drop as fast as the new C-7 will once they are plentiful which the big numbers made they will be sitting on the lots. Plus the C-7 will made for at least 6-7 years.

The new Z06 will be 100k plus.
I pretty those that think less are wrong.
With the premium C-7 at 85k
They have to break 100k like the ZR1 did with the ls-9. Plus those are
1 full year away or more. Then the MSRP "adjustment" 10 plus k will stay on these esp early sales.
In your case that new 13 will drop in your hands and in 2-3 years of ownership will cost a bundle of lost value. Lose a lot less on a low mile used Garage queen!
Buy a low mile car like I did instead. Plus I'm paying cash. Loan costs are high. Just my opinion!
