I like every friggin color with the exception of LRG (no offense, just not for me!). I even considered black which I totally swore off after my black 86 Camaro.

My top choices right now in somewhat favorite to least favorite order:

1. White (tie)
2. Silver (tie)
3. Tiger Shark Gray
4, Torch Red
5. Daytona Sunrise Orange Metallic
6. Laguna Blue

I seem to change my mind everyday. How in the world do I make a choice?

Had a long dream months ago, when I was debating which color to get.

Was coming out of a restaurant, someone had stolen my car parked out front, but there was a 2014 StingRay in every color there, and I was told that I had to take one home, but was then told that I could never ever change Corvette's colors again, not even for my C9 or my C9, "so pick wisely." Keep walking back and forth, moving them around, then took my top two and parked them side by side, then made my final choice.

Weird dream, but helped me pick my color (not even one on your list). Good luck, or win the lottery and buy one of each color, choose each morning which one you want to drive that say.

And if you still have a tie, think about your favorite interior color, and which exterior color it would look best with, and/or go to a dealership or car show with several StingRays in different colors.

Definitely leaning this way. Sat in one with 2LT Adrenaline Red interior and red calipers yesterday. I was definitely in love.

Funny story! The adrenaline Red interior is definitely my preference, so that was very helpful advice thinking of it from that perspective. Kind of eliminates a few colors. Thanks!

It's a difficult choice for sure, but they are all great. I finally settled on Laguna Blue after considering Torch Red and Blade Silver. I'm very happy with my choice, and she really turns heads. Gets plenty of positive comments like, "That blue really pops, and just makes the car!"

To choose a color that is not easy thing, because we want the best for our investment, but we are lucky on the site stingray forum, we have many Videos and posts that puts us identified several colors helps us make our choice.

Sometimes this is just details like the wheels, the color accessioires other times it is the arrangement of the interior color with the exterior color but I love to see them on the screen and when my choice stopped I would check our dealers supporters on the site and see their inventory and move me, for Verily make sure my choice is what I immagine in person is what I want I think that it is a way to do that does not deceive.:cool:

**Sigh** As has been said, "There are none so blind as those who refuse to see". :rolleyes:

I had the same challenge as you - the lines of the C7 look good in any color. My 2nd choice after LRG was CRT, which also isn't on your list, so clearly our brains are wired differently.

I like the Vette in White, especially with a black stinger

or Laguna with Silver stripes ( http://www.stingrayforums.com/forum/stingray-corvette-accessories/549-stripes-12.html ).

It's the toughest part of the purchase, but whatever color you choose it will be loved by you and the masses - I'm routinely followed by people who want a closer look at my LRG, photographed, and stared at when just driving down the street or pulling into a parking lot.

Do yourself a favor, do not poll friends/family about what color they like. Get what YOU like. Regardless, glad wife talked me into Torch Red. With the adrenaline red leather I saw during the debut, I'm a happy guy. Constant complements on color.

Definitely wired differently, I don't like any stripes on a car whatsoever!

I have to admit I eliminated a color because 2 friends gave me a hard time over it. This color is not to be mentioned in order to not offend owners of said color. I really liked the color too until they ribbed me over it.

Saw 2 Laguna Blue Stingrays at a car show yesterday, they were gorgeous. I think on this color it's more of a "love it but not for me" type of situation. I tend to gravitate towards the lighter colors.

It feels like this or silver is where I'll end up. Unless Tiger Shark Gray or DSOM blow me away. Here I go again........

There's something about a Stingray in Tiger Shark Gray...synergy of names...has to be the most "right" choice.

But, get what makes your heart sing. Don't worry about what other people would get. It's your car!

My 2nd Vette was VY. Many thought it was garish or too loud. I enjoyed every minute in it!

I'm normally conservative in chosing colors for my cars, last few have been silver with black interiors. However this new Stingray just pops with bright colors and so I find myself swinging back and forth between extremes. I'm really enjoying the hell out of my predicament in chosing a color combo. I'm also swing between converible & coupe, which I never would have done with previous years. Have fun everyone these are the best of times, now lets talk about all these option choices..........................

I was all about the torch red, the wife stated she really liked the Laguna Blue, not the blue one but the Laguna Blue! I also liked it so it was an easy compromise. We have gotten so many compliments on the color so for us a great choice.

Now for us the harder decision was the interior. To us they all looked terrific with the LB, we kept changing our minds. We ended up with the first instinctive choice. So my advice go with what you liked first, your first instinct.

Same for me! How I wish I had a memory like this to be inspired by. Would be a no brainer which color to go with.

At first he said I should have also gotten the red interior like he had, but when I showed him pictures that it was only red accents, he agreed that the ebony black was a better choice.
