Pissed off every month when GM comes out with something new about the ZO6. I paid an extra 15K for #309 of 500 and now the ZO6 and ZO6 convertible are coming. Feelin like I should have waited or should sell now.

Yes. Almost $80K for a premiere edition.

You do realize there's nothing collectible about the car you bought, unless you plan on keeping it for 30 years and park it in a bubble and never drive it again.

There's always going to be something newer or better. I'm betting they will drop a ZR1 in a few years.
So very true.

I want what I envision as a C7 ZR1. The C7 Z06 is the closest thing to it that can soon be purchased. In my younger days I would wait for the future ZR1. In my (not terribly) old age, I'm getting a 2015 Z06 and enjoy it while I can. If a ZR1 soon follows a part of me will feel "cheated", but the rest of me will be enjoying the heck out of the Z06. Heck, the C7 Z06 as we know it is more car than the vast majority of us can handle anyway.

Why worry keep your limited edition and buy a Z06. In a few years when the next model change comes you can trade both in and get a new corvette it's only money!

80K is not 15k over, it is ~4K over as the MSRP is ~76K.
Here's the painful part, I got mine for $69,900 used with 2,500 miles on it.

While the limited edition factor is interesting, I don't think the technology will be around in 30 years to work on the car.
So I doubt they will ever really be collectible. In fact, I am not sure any vette will ever be collectible again.

Just my .02

corvettecraig, I totally agree with you. With software updates, hardware updates, parts changes all occurring frequently, how are we going get our current cars restored decades from now.

As above might be true also realize with new technology comes new technology in troubleshooting these high tech cars. As well mechanics are better train than say 20 years ago. So will our cars truly be collectible some day hard to say who knows some day gas cars maybe illegal to drive on the road or gasoline may no longer be available.

Electric cars are the wave of the future. It will just be a matter of time, probably not too long from now.

No doubt, electric cars are the future. Tesla has given us a glimpse of that future.

There are god things to be said about electric cars. Some are actually true! But without any question what-so-ever internal combustion engines hace rules for a very long time. And they are not going to disappear anytime soon. Surely not in my lifetime...and I plan on being around to irritate people for a l-o-n-g time!

It all depends on how long the world can keep on pumping increasing levels of oil.

Sooner or later, all good things must come to an end.

Fortunately, as Tesla has shown us, you can easily pack 416 HP an 443 Ft.lbs into a motor of less than 100 lb ( File:Tesla Model S motor cutout.jpg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ), and still have a vehicle that gets 95 MPGe.

And remember, these are the "Model Ts" of future electric cars!
