1. Coupe
2. Convertible
3. Z51 Coupe
4. Z51 Convertible
5. Grand Sport Coupe
6. Grand Sport Convertible
7. ZO6 Coupe
8. ZO6 Convertible
9. ZR1 Coupe
10. ZR1 Convertible

Is there too many choices?
Tadge claimed “ there were too many variations of the C6 having to be produced” when the C7 first came out as well...

Now they are back at it....

Dave, why are you starting a thread about "Who's Buying One" when we don't even know the price yet???????

^There's plenty of enthusiasts who will buy regardless of price just to have it. And the rough price estimate has already been stated at around $120k.

I'm the guy who buys what others discard. As an example, I bought a CPO C7 Z51. So I'm not in the market for a ZR1. But a Z06? Hmmm. Don't know, maybe.

Wait....I'm an enthusiast too. I have enough money to buy a ZR1, but I'd still like to know the price.

Hopefully there will not be any ADMs. If so, then I’m out. I remember many paying 20-25K over MSRP for ‘07 GT500, KRs, and newer GT350. I wasn’t following the early C7 back in ‘13, so not sure about them... and I know that only a few dealerships were asking for them on ‘15 Z06s.

Is there really a chance there won't be markups? Almost every "limited" car in high demand has them, especially the first year. I'm guessing this car will be close to $150k out the door to own one, but I hope I'm wrong.

Given the heavy and large front end I am delaying my planned purchase and now waiting on the ME. I also can't do the large wing. It would look really good at the track, but very ricer on the street.

when she finishes college you will probably be able to pick up one of these that was a garage queen a good price

Wonder if theyll consider a GS version. The ZR1 body and extras with regular vette drivetrain

^I don't understand the hate for the wing, especially since you can get a smaller one. It's what makes the car such a great performer and I think it completes the aggressive look of the car. If there was no spoiler or a subtle one it'd look out of place compared to the angry looking front end imo. If anything I think they should've added an aggressive diffuser as well...

Cant afford one unless I hit a lotto jackpot ! However. I am still happy for anyone who can afford one .I still love my base C7 3LT but happy for anyone who has a Corvette, any year and any trim level!

The top dealers are getting the bulk of the allocations, a few of them are forum dealers. Did any of them charge over MSRP when the new C7 came our, Z06 or otherwise? Time to see what they're made of now. Let see who steps in here and say's they will take orders at MSRP or a small discount

C7 in any format is becoming a little dated. My next Corvette will be a C8, model undecided.

Real hard being second fastest GM car ever built.
The second fastest car gm built was the c6 zr1 since it can go 205 mph.




The second fastest car GM has built is the c6 zr1 capable of 205 mph.

I can afford it, but I just bought one of the remaining 2017 Grand Sport Collector's Editions. Maybe I'll upgrade in the future. Even if I don't have the fastest model, I'm glad that GM is upping their game, that Corvette is in the house, large and in charge. In some sense, it's good for Corvettes everywhere.

Just not enough of an increment in features and technology to justify buying a second C7 when it's pretty obvious this generation is about to end. I can wait for the ME, which will most likely be named the new King of the Hill in a year or two.

Not in 0-60 and 1/4 mile and lap times the C7 Z06 is faster but I know you already knew that. if you want to go by top speed their are a few other Corvettes that have a higher top end speed than the C7 Z06.

I won't be buying one, my '18 Z06 is already pushing my financial limitations! Besides I really am happy with the Z!
