I half saw this coming. He said it wouldn't be double but didn't state if that meant it wouldn't be more than double or less than double

I figured a 10k increase over a comparable Z06 if you optioned a Z06 with all the standard features of the ZR1. Guess that was wrong

THIS THIS THIS X1000

That is a whole lot of money to spend and then at oil change time have to sit for 2 hours drinking burnt coffee next to Sandra the soccer mom who is getting the tire patched on her 2003 Chevy Cavalier.

However, maybe GM upcharged the price after Tadge thought it would be around $110k? Or maybe he knows it will be $120k but wanted to yank our chains into believing the base would be $110k.. The 2nd scenario is where I have a problem with.
That's ridiculous anyone who thought the base car would be under 120k after seeing it! Even more so falling back on Tadge remarks he doesn't set any price
If 10k is stopping you were not a buyer anyway.

Some Corvette enthusiast's will even buy a second Z06 instead.
The low bill on the front and large wing say's I'm a track car and when on the street says look at me far more than I could do! I would screw that front spoiler up and be too po'd!

Agreed. I think it's going to take select locations that have the knowledge and ability to get them out the door while at the same time providing a great business transaction for both parties. Some dealerships straight up don't meet that criteria, but you know they'll end up with a ZR1 or two just to get the vehicle out there.

Did I miss something here? Who said the ZR1 is one (model) year only?

JVP you have to admit when Tadge talks people listen. When he said the ZR1 would not be more than double the cost of a Stingray 99% of the people would assume that means it would not be MORE than double the cost. Your response that Tadge meant it would be more than double the cost is just silly.

A starting price a hair below 120k was my exact guess over in the other "price is right thread". There were a lot of naysayers saying it would start at much less. What do I win?

Touché. I guessed a "hair under 120k" as I was hedging my bets for a starting price of either $119,995 or $119,999 depending on which cliche marketing gimmick they decided to go with.

Heck base price is just a marketing gimmick as base cars with zero options are about as rare as unicorns.

I'm guessing they'll put the "starting at $119,995" line under a photo of a ZR1 optioned out to around $145k.

How many dealers will add their usual market adjustment to the MSRP? What does the future hold for the used C7 market with all the big discounts and dealer Flex Cash ?

Yeah, I can see it now....You see this new ZR1 loaded that lists for $136,000 but the dealer wants $15000 more. Ask about your 2017 Z06 trade in and wants to allow you $60,000.

I love living in a "RED" flyover state. I can buy a ZR1 from a number of dealers at MSRP.

I really don't get all the hate towards Tadge. I think he cares very much about the Corvette community and is even willing to take time every week to respond to our questions. I do think he sometimes gets a little far out over his skis and shares information that probably isn't totally final and when things change folks take as though he intentionally lied.

Personally, I'd rather have someone share the best information they know at the time with us rather than just a bunch of no comments until there is a formal press release. However, if everyone keeps accusing him of being a liar I wouldn't blame him if he just stops sharing anything.

Well geez, you can say that about the Stingray w/Z51 if you wanted to. I could buy a Stingray, put 20k worth of performance parts on it and it would be able to keep up with any C7 and I'd still have change left over.

Odd GM makes 2 HD version of these cars. Why not just make one? I agree with folks saying thats alot of cash for some cf, 100 more hp and cooling. Regardless I hope they sell well

I hadn't seen this posted anywhere else but it looks like the ZTK package is $2,995. If nothing else, I think that is reasonable.

I believe this is from the official press release but I saw it here:

So for 120K the ZR1 comes with over 750 HP while a 911 at that price is like 400 or 430. What a hose job.

Stingray? GS could say that but the stingray needs the rubber and the body not worth all that. The Z06 is a good choice for those who like the
power. Now we have the ZR1 supercar killer. Good for the brand!
