Targa "buffeting" C7 vs. C6

Anybody move from a C6 coupe to a C7 coupe and notice that the "buffetting" one can experience with the targa panel removed is quite a bit less?

Maybe it is just my excitement about my new (to me)...

And the C4 even worse still! Gotta hand it to the C7 engineering team for achieving the EPA MPG cycle benefit of the CAGs without it bothering most of us at all!

Pretty well put, but the argument will persist. I think what you miss, at least a bit, is that the DCT is truly a hybrid tranny.

They look REALLY good with that color. I too dislike chrome, and find black unattractive except in a few instances (like on a white or silver C7 with red calipers where black wheels flat-out work)....

Because those “fish” still cost “x.” And, if OP can get one for “x” less “enough” of a discount to offset the risks, then they get more Vette for less money! A much bigger “fish” if you will.

Goodbye

The bug bit and the urge was too strong. And so I am leaving the C6 world, and 5 years of great memories, such as the 2014 Caravan, hot laps with buddies at NJMP, Corvette Corrals at Watkins Glen,...

FWIW —

I just sold my C6 and picked up a really stunning C7. So don’t get me wrong — to my eyes TODAY the C7 “pops” and the C6 kinda just sits there. BUT, I still wonder whether in a decade or...

It sure is!

Moved right to 2nd place in the list of C7s I am looking at.

This is fun. There are less-equipped C7s below $40K that can work for me; for the right one maybe I go as high as $41K...

M7 under $40K

Finally sold the Atomic C6 and now actively looking to pick up a nice C7. M7 and NOT black or yellow are musts. 2LT preferred but will consider great base cars. Z51 nice but I probably don't value it...

Staying away. If it were closer and I could really examine it I might consider it. But that thing was REALLY flooded. And if salt water? Yikes.

I will follow it to see what the market values it at.
