I’ll just go ahead and say “Ditto!” . Well said Kyle.Here is a thread titled "Would You replace your Stingray for Grand Sport" that will provide you each person’s reasons and I included my response to thread below. Every situation is different and it’s more to it than just go buy a Grand Sport and take huge depreciation on your current C7 and/or go further in to debt etc.. There's no right or wrong but whatever works for you doesn't necessarily work for someone else.
I like the GS and Wide Body look and considered a GS but I won't give my 2014 Z51 3LT away to a stealership that I only owe $22k and have many mods (worth nothing to anyone but me) and I love my car. I don't track nor would I ever tap into the differences in the benefits of a Z06, GS vs Z51 other than just to have the latest. That said, I wasn't going to accept 38-40k for my car that's 24 months away from being paid for to go into debt a new 60-70k in debt for a wide body since I couldn't pay cash for it.
The GS is really beautiful in the wide body but I joke with my two buddies in which one has a Z06 and one has a GS but when we go to car events, more people stop to look at my modded narrow body but they casually walks past theirs because they look like the rest of the stock GS/Z06 wide bodies...not a criticism just helps keeps me grounded that I don't need a new car lol. Whatever works, right?
Also, I don't like my car looking like everyone else's which mean I would end up spending easily 10k+ just modding to personalize it while also paying new sales tax and interest on car loan. Generally, I am fiscally conservative in terms of managing my money so a car is a very depreciating asset so I have enough of those so when the car is paid for I will redirect those funds into paying off my home. lastly, I got three kids through college debt free so I am now replenishing nest egg and working on paying my home off in 8 years... My Mom taught me to be content and not keep chasing the latest and greatest because you will remain on a hamster wheel. After I pay this car off and my home, I will be in the wonderful world of 100% debt-free other than normal living expenses which is my goal before retirement.
To all those that get the GS, Z06, ZR1 or Mid Engine, Congratulations as they are all wonderful cars and no one can tell anyone how to spend their money..IF I had 60-80k to buy a car cash and not impact my overall net worth then I probably would but since I don't.... Cheers to those that can! . So to answer the question "Would You replace your Stingray for Grand Sport", for me the answer is NO based on the aforementioned comments.
