C7 Stingray vs Z06

The Chevrolet Corvette C7 in any way shape or form is truly an amazing platform. Aside from being an ace in the hole for all those who previously loved or obsessed over the Corvette, the C7 helped to bring aboard a host of fans that were previously not so in love with the Corvette. Though some may not appreciate it, from a marketing stand point, it is a tough feat to persuade new customers to an otherwise niche brand. This really is a testament Corvette's potential.

There are a multitude of options between the Stingray and the Z06: coupe or convertible, manual or automatic, paint, interior trim levels, etc. Having had the opportunity to spend a fair amount of time in each, I thought I would impart a bit of my own opinion for those considering one of these two main platforms. Now, clearly if you can only afford the Stingray then this conversation is a moot point, but not to worry… you can still afford to purchase one of the best sports cars on the road today.

You may already be thinking to yourself, how can you compare a car with a current base price of $55,400 to that of $79,400, or is 190 hp really worth another $24,000? Well, there are about as many opinions about cars as there possible paint colors, but I'll tell you what I think about the matter.
