The new Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is a good choice if you want a Z06's agility but don't think you can trust yourself with 650 horsepower. Prices for the mid-range Corvette have been confirmed at $66,445 for the hardtop and $70,445 for the convertible. That works out to a $13,950 savings compared to either the Z06 Coupe or the $84,395 Convertible. But perhaps more importantly, it's only $10,050 more than the base, $56,395 C7 Coupe or $60,395 C7 Convertible.

And now that we have the official pricing details, we can say that the new GS is also a suitable substitute if you're put off by the Z06's $80,395 price tag.

That, friends, is a bargain. Just $10,000 more gets you a lighter version of the standard, 460-horsepower Corvette that can pull up to 1.2 Gs in the bends. It has super-sticky Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, a unique wheel design – 12-inch-wide wheels in back! – big, powerful Brembo brakes, MagneRide, and an electric limited-slip differential. If you need more performance, carbon-ceramic brakes are available, as are Pilot Sport 2 Cup tires. In short, this is a cut-rate track toy that looks like it will strike a real sweet spot in the Corvette range.

Now, if Chevrolet will just let us get

Edmunds recently posted their award winners in a survey of best retained values for 2016. These are the brands and models that have the highest projected private party residual value five years after their launch.

The Chevrolet Corvette was named as the winner in the “Best Midrange Sports Car” segment with honorable mentions going out to the Porsche Cayman and Porsche Boxster.

Edmunds says knowing your vehicle’s resale value is critical for car buyers as the smart shopper will choose a vehicle with high retained value so they can maximize their worth at trade-in or sale. Knowing the resale value is also key when leasing as the resale value is a key factor in determining the monthly lease payment.

This is the second consectuive year for Corvette to win its segment category in the Edmunds Best Retained Value Awards and the third time in four years.

The Chevrolet Corvette’s retained value after five years was projected by Edmunds to be 53.9% while the category average is 49.2%:
