I'd drop that 650S for a 720
I'd drop that 720 for a P1

Yep, can’t see how all those who “had to have a Z06” don’t wake up in the morning thinking by skipping some Starbucks’ Lattes each day could be driving a ZR1!

Those that “must have the most hp,” and don’t mod-sure don’t with a Z06!

I have had several fast cars, some that overpowered the tires all the time (No-Fun) I think the Grand Sport was all I needed. It wont hook up under 40 anyway so whats the point?

I have had my 2015 Z 4 years this month. I can't begin to tell you about the rush it gives you. I am 70 and feel like a teen on a hot date when driving the car. I have owned many Corvettes and the C7 Z06 is the finest Vette ever built.

Just make sure you have protection on when out on that hot date together.

Who said anything about the track?? You have 2 race cars!!! Any one who buys a ZO6 and thinks it is a factory ready competitive race car is a fool.... over heating on the track has nothing to do with the thread.... for me the GS is a waste of money.... when it comes to the fun factor in every day driving...... this crap about its way too much power for the street is BS

It's almost like some people might have different priorities. I wanted to track mine so a Z06 was out of the question. It was all show, no go (or better put, no go after lap 3). I enjoy tracking mine more than I'd enjoy another 200hp on the street.
