I’m done with new Vettes after owning a C4, C5 & currently a 13 GS. Even the current $3k loyalty rebate does nothing for me since I’m not a C7 fan. I took advantage of the loyalty rebate in 2013 with...

427 C6 is a collector and better looking. C7 Stingray: ugly and boring with probably around 40k built in the early years so you can find one on every other corner.
