Default What do you guys think about the C7 Corvette?

I'm a bit biased because my dad has a Z51 manual, and it's awesome. He has it in Shark Gray, and to see that thing in the garage is the best. It looks like a batmobile, as my dad calls it. We live in an area polluted with kids from my school, and everyone's got their Mustangs and Camaros and old C4 Vettes, and of course fart can civics. Then when we drive the batmobile, and kids on the street will be yelling at us and waving, giving thumbs up, pointing, etc.

People will race is a lot. Just yesterday we were on the highway and this PT Cruiser was in front of us, weaving through traffic flying at 90 mph with us right behind. When there was a clearing in the traffic, we gunned it, and when we passed him, the guy was looking at us with a bold smile, as if saying "yeah, took you long enough to pass me".

Anyways, it's a great car, it's fast, and my god it's loud. After he bought it and before I'd seen it yet, I'd heard of companies making fake exhaust sounds through the speakers, and worried this was the case. Boy was I wrong. This thing screams.

I passed the 3 yr mark back in September and am still super excited about this kickass car...I enjoy it more than my 1969 Z/28 which is a super fun car too.

Love mine! After two C6’s and four C3’s, it’s the best Vette I have ever owned.

Same here. Loved my c5 z but the C7 Grand Sport makes for a nice transition.

I love mine. First and will be only vette. Cannot afford another after this. Dream car so to speak. Worked hard for years to get to one.
Would not trade it for anything. More car for the money than I thought it would be.
