Pretty cool, but the $16k I saved getting my 2LT Z51 instead of the Z06 was worth it in my book.

I bet for less than half of that $16k, a guy could mod his Stingray enough to equal or beat the Z06.

If I was going to play in the deep end of the pool, I'd rather pay the 16 grand and get a real Z06.

That number is the starting price. Equipped will be mid 90 range which is still a great deal. Sales tax and fees will put it over $100.

Absolutely.

Those who think they can match the performance of a Z06 in the aftermarket for the $20k Z06 up charge are living in a dream world. Plus, ask them what their modded car is worth 5 years and 50000 miles from now!

And so it begins... The My Z06 is Better than you Stingray Z51 etc. :rolleyes:

All Corvette's are Great. Some just have more opt. and some cost more. Bottom Line it's a CORVETTE.

I paid $72K at msrp for my fully equipped 2014 Z51 3LT so if wanted a fully equipped Z06 with all the bells and whistles like my current car that would probably be 96K that is $24k difference plus $2K more in additional state Ca state tax plus I am sure my insurance premium would go from $800 per year to $2K per year?

That is allot of chump change to shell out for a car in my opinion being on a single income? I have the money but I want to save that for my golden years when I retire.;)

Sad to say that will be true for all of them. One other thing, no matter how "bad" your car might be at the end of a performance upgrade, there will be others that spend more and their car will be a bit more "bad to the bone" than is your's. As long as you are out to satisfy your own wants & dreams...It's all good!

Hey smajicek... who is your insurance carrier. I can only seem to get coverage for 2015 Z51 from $111 to $150 per month depending on deductibles. This is with a zero at fault accidents and zero tickets in the last 25 years. There were 2 uninsured motorists that hit me about 5 years ago though.
I opted for the same coverage as my Saleen S331 SC (full coverage with $100 comp / $500 collision) I can get it down to $100 range per mo. but this is with $1000 comp/collision

No, not at all, you took my comments way out of context. I was commenting exclusively on a post that someone could spend the $16k more the Z06 would cost and have more car, not that "my Z06 is better than your Stingray". There's more to a car than the Dyno numbers or 1/4 mile times. Driveability, longevity and retained value all factor in and the money it would cost for an independent to replicate, much less exceed the entire Z06 package will end up being far more than the difference in base price.

But, to your point, a Z06 IS a higher performance version of the C7 platform. Whether that makes it better is purely a function of what you desire out of a car. My comments in no way denigrate anyone else's choice.

Yep and expect to see some monster builds on top of the Z06. Anyone want to place a bet on how soon we see 1000 HP Dyno graphs ;)
