Hello! I'm new to this forum and looking forward to be a future vette owner. I do have a dilemma which i'm hoping to get some insight/advice from your precious experience regarding these remarkable vehicles. Since the C7 came out, the 2013 GS has some unbelievable bargains, I had two potential opportunities to get 1 below 44k brand new. From your previous experience (specially GS owners), is there value in going this route first for a first time future vette owner or should you rather skip this and order a C7? This would just be a weekend car with occasional track use and so the interior appointments in the C7 is not a priority. I do understand that in terms of performance the C7 is ahead but I believe ordering the C7 now would be at MSRP so in terms a better financial decision, is there value in ordering 2013 GS as a weekend car with occasional track use now for below 44k and trading it in 3 to 4 years down the road when the C7 prices stabilize? Any insight would be really helpful and thank you in advance!

I too had the opportunity to purchase a GS at a substantial savings below the 76K sticker price. The dealer offered it for the same price as the C7 with all the available options I wanted (all available performance goodies). I test drove it and wasn't impressed by the performance. The steering was inferior to the BMW M3 I was considering for one thing and it was a convertible and automatic (paddle shifter), two things I didn't want. I decided to wait for the C7 and hope I purchased the correct automobile. Can anyone shed any opinions on my choice?
