Foolish unless you just have to have one of the new color combinations. No significant changes.

Trade.
The economy is best fueled by consumer purchasing.

NO, it's not foolish at all and you should sell me your 2015 at a really low price

also; please update your profile and get rid of the 2008 ao vette.

If you can get a lot for your '15 and buy the '16 cheap, go for it. And GM needs the money.

Life is too short. If you want a new one, by all means go for it!

Foolish, wait 2 or 3 more years or you will be kicking yourself in the backside if a new ZR1 replacement or more signifant changes like a HP increase become available

If money is not an object and you want it, do it.

Unless there's something about your '15 that you don't like (color, transmission, coupe vs. convertible, etc.) I can't come up with a good reason to trade it on a '16. The hatch pulldown and forward-facing cameras wouldn't be nearly enough for me to do it. The flat-bottom steering wheel can easily be added to a '15.

Went from a 13 3LT GS to a 15 Z51 2LT so I guess my limit is 2 years. My problem is I have a chance to buy a blacked out 13 ZR1 under 10,000 miles. Corvettes have so many draws. Tough choice but do what you feel is best for you.

Foolish you would be spending money on basically the same car, unless you upgrade to a Z06.

Now that ZR1 is a worthy upgrade. If you don't want it let me know

You get hit hardest the 1st year on Depreciation, so never the best time to sell a 1 year old model.

Why turn around and pay sales tax two years in a row?
