Didn't see a thread with this info yet. How much are folks paying for insurance and through what company? Make sure you list what state you are in for comparison purposes, and what your deductibles are. Also, what specific model Stingray

My quote in NJ from New Jersey Manufacturers:

$1,817, 100 comp/500 collision for a 3LT Z51 conv. Age 48.

I was quoted by California Casualty $1042 per year for 5,000 miles a year on a 3LT Z51 Convertible with 300K/500K Liability, $100 deductible on comp and $1,000 deductible on collision in the California Republic. Age 55+ and this is $350 a year less than what I am paying on my wife's Infinity FX35 with the same coverage except mileage is 7000 a year on the FX35.

Please include your age range (if willing) as that is the biggest factor.

Had a long conversation with my State Farm Agent (fellow Corvetter). She said that StingRay rates for me would be less than my current car by $14.35/month compared to my current car 2006 Z06. Asked her twice, for this means that if I were to replace my current Corvette (worth approx. $35K), with a brand new 2015 StingRay which cost me $70K, my rates would go down by $14.35/month. She again said, "yes." Very impressive.

She also made it clear that that that specific rate differential would not hold true when I get my 2015 Z06, and, that State Farm will not insure, for the Z06, everyone they currently insure -- that the Z06 will fall into a special class due to its extreme power and performance, i.e., State Farm will insure the new Z06 on a "case by case basis." She added, that for folks who had great driving records, that while Z06 rates have not obviously been finalized, I will be very happy with my rate for it.

579.74 per 6 months for $500 deductibles for $100k coverage for all. USAA in VA. Having two teenage drivers on the policy didn't help.

State Farm will insure the new Z06 on a "case by case basis." .
They quoted me a little over $1000/year for a ZR1 valued at $125K. 100k/300k liability (I have an umbrella policy) and $1000 deductible on collision. 5000-6000 miles per year estimate. A 2013 Z06 was less, mostly due to the lower value. To a lesser extent because of the lower performance level. My wife and I are early 60s with squeaky clean driving record and credit rating. Be with them for 40+ years. Many policies.

State Farm did exactly that on a 260 HP PWC I bought last year. Joe Blow calls them up and the answer is "We don't insure them with that much horsepower." A long term client with a very clean record, different answer.

Allstate in Florida; retiree. Very high coverage levels. C7 as a second vehicle. Originally $350/6 months and renewed at about $400/6 months. Good luck in New Joisey, from an ex-New Yawka.

Ragtop, I never had vehicle insurance until I pulled up to the front gate of Camp Lejeune, NC 1981 as a young boot Pvt. Let me get back on track.

State Farm, I called to verify cost and coverage prior to buying my C7 masterpiece, I've always factored in car payment with monthly insurance payment.
$708 a year, $500 deductible, unlimited miles, daily driver. (Certificate of guaranteed renewal). Age 51 years and getting younger behind the wheel of my C7!!

Hagerty,
1970 Camaro
$257 a year, full coverage, unlimited miles
$25,000 agreed value

I called to get a quote from my agent since I don't have the car yet. Erie Insurance- $1100 for a year, unlimited mileage- 55 years old. I might shop around once I get the car, as it seems high to me based on what others have posted.

The single biggest component of auto insurance is your credit rating. Might explain the discrepancies.

I gotta get OUT of NJ! I have a stirling credit record and it's still 1800. Will probably go with NCM insurance at half the price, despite restrictions.

If you don't drive it during winter you can "delete to comp" and get a reduced rate until spring. I've done this with other cars (State Farm)

I used to do that. In New York it required my turning the plates into Department of Motor Vehicles. Saved a fair amount of money.
