I am just curious to see if anyone will be jumping on the bandwagon to buy a Stingray as soon as it hits the lots. I am keeping my ZR until they produce something that can match it's speed bone stock.
Of course the technology in the 2014 is pretty stout. I am not much for the fancy shmancy mylink radio. I rather prefer a simple touch screen like the one in the current C6. Complex electronics and new gadgets just mean more opportunities for glitches and failures, but that is just my opinion. Engine is solid.
I am content with my ZR and have no intention of buying a Stingray right off the bat. There will be technology enhancements as the years go on so for me personally, it's better to wait. I want to see what they will do for a high performance version and when and if, it will debut. I would say it would be a few years before you see a Z06 and even more so a ZR1, but that is just my own intuition.
For now, I will enjoy my still very rare ZR1. Sure the Stingray will get the ooooooo's and aaaaaaaa's when it first hits the showrooms, but as with anything else it will become just another C7 with time and it's uniqueness will diminish.
Just the other day I was at an intersection and a teen in his car just stayed at the stop sign (they were crossing from the left) and I read his lips "it's a ZR1" as he pointed in awe. I just smiled and politely waited as he crossed. Yup, I am sure everyone still gets those. Nice to know it still holds a fascination for some even after being in production since 09. A great run and a fantastic finish to my favorite body style so far. We shall see what Chevy plans to do for the Stingray in a high performance version.
Until then fellow ZR1ians...I just made that up! Have fun and be safe.
