Question To Vette or not to Vette

Hello all,

This is my first post as i have never owned a Vette but am possibly interested in purchasing one. I'm looking at the C6 because its the newest Vette I can afford. Some questons:

What should I look for (pros and cons)?
Did all coupes come with the "Targa Top"? (I'm looking for the targa top option)
Stick or Auto?
What options am i going to want with the car that will help hold the value?

Thanks for viewing my post.

Rallysport aka Dan

Default 2007 Coupe, Targa Top

Rallysport,


If still interested, I have a 2007 coupe with a targa top for sale. It is a manual transmission and has 82k miles on it.

hi RS,

I have a 2008. The base model has a targa top. All the corvettes hold their value pretty well if maintained properly. There are several different packages that you may explore. 1lt, 2lt,3lt, z51,NPP, Z06, Grand Sport...and on and on... if you are paying a fair price than you can expect a small depreciation as it gets older and as the mileage increases.... hope this helps....

Default C6 best value

I recently replaced my '95 C4 with a 2007 C6 Z06. I was actually looking for a Grand Sport but the Z06 came along. First off, suggest you do not test drive more car than you expect to buy. After driving the 505HP Z06 Manual 6-Speed it was hard to go back. For an old guy like me, if it does not have a clutch it is just another cruiser. As with most cars, buy miles not year, all else being equal. Keep in mind in 2008 the LS2 was replaced with the LS3 (a great reliable engine), increasing to 430 HP along with a gearbox/transaxle upgrade. Just do your research and take your time and you will find the right deal. Good Luck!

Just a comment on the tranny choice. What do you want to do with the car? Street race, or tour? I have an '05 with a 6 speed. I just like to shift, but unless I would put in dozens of hour practicing shifting very fast, it is not a racing machine. The gears are so close together that is easy when going to fifth to go back to third. If you enjoy shifting a lot, go for the 6 speed. If you just want to cruise around, go for the automatic.
