White is a good color. It is low maintenance compared to black or other dark shades, doesn't show dirt as much since the car just changes color as it gets dirty and it hides the very small chips in the paint that occur from road debris being thrown onto the side of the car every time you drive it.

White is a nice looking color on the C7. However, it isn't always a nice looking color on every car. I had a white C4 for 10 years and when I got a look at a new white C5 I knew I didn't like the look of a white C5. It just didn't look right. White C6s were a little better but the style of the C7 really looks great in white.

My last 2 cars were red. I didn't pick either color the price picked it for me.

2012 CTS-V coupe, every option, $73K MSRP, paid $49,987.

2016 Corvette Z06, 3LZ, $93K MSRP, paid $74K.

Go for the blue. With white you are just one in the crowd. Either way you will be happy. The C7 is, IMHO, one of the very few cars that stand out in white. With most cars white simply amplifies the fact that body parts have seams. Yet it works very well on the Vette. But sometimes it is refreshing to not be one of many. Individualism rocks. Go blue!!

So I just seen that Chevy released a new color, Matrix Gray. This is similar to porsches Fashion gray. Love it. That is what I'm going with it. Blue stitching.

The best color for resale is the one someone wants to buy.
