Key info from video of Tadge Juechter, Corvette Executive Chief Engineer -- while at Sebring:

Z06 will be approximately $35,000 less than ZR1;

Z06 will be slightly heavier than ZR1;

Could be some body modification changes before year's testing is finished. Unspecified what might be those changes, the magnitude of those changes, etc. While many wish the front fender spats will go away, Tadge did not provide any specifics as to what those changes "might" be.

Without a single option, but including transportation/delivery, was $114,585.

Ergo, $79,585 for 2015 Z06 without a single option (again including transportation).

Cool. If this will hold true as the ballpark price, then my hunch and plans are on target! And at least this time around while waiting for the Z06... I get to enjoy the Stingray in the meantime! :D

You got that right!

If someone has whispered to me last fall that they had inside knowledge that the Z06 would start in the high $70's, that it, on its first outing -- with not even its final tires, no track tuning etc., run Milford Proving Grounds faster than the ZR1 ever did (with the ZR1's five years of development), would develop 635+ TQ, and exceed 205 MPH, I would have said to that person, "what are you smoking?"


One tiny thing, the interior levels of the Z06, will be called : 1LZ, 2LZ, and 3LZ.

Well you say no options but for this price you are getting Mag Ride, Z51 and Performance Exhaust included. ;)

So if I do some quick math, a Stingray with these options is around $60K so it looks like the Z06 is about a $19K option over a Stingray.

Weight wise a ZR1 was about 3333lbs so we are maybe looking at ~3400 lbs for the Z06. Whereas the Stingray comes in at 3298lbs puts the Z06 at ~102lbs heavier.
Which lines up to what I predicted of 100 - 150lbs heavier over a Stingray.

Good point, for with the recent price increase, the fact that the Z06 comes with NPP, Z-51 and MSRC, its base price includes $7,000 worth of StingRay options.

Like your calculations, and resultant conclusion that the Z06, when those three components are considered (apples to apples), that the Z06 is a $19,000 "upgrade."

Our forum's dealership supporting vendor, MacMulkin Chevrolet, which has over 1,000 Corvette allocations yearly, has stated that they are selling Z06's at MSRP/list (no mark-ups, no documentation, nor any other kind of fees). MacMulkin is accepting names on their Z06 priority list.

Good news about the price so far but will dealers put premiums on, like they did the C6's??
The answer is they can, it's a free world and my guess is you will have a few dealers especially those with very small allocations like 1 or 2 will do so. However we are finding that most of the dealers that are taking deposits are not marking them up like my dealer. So my best advice is simple if you decide you want one just talk to your local dealer and see if they will honor sticker price and most importantly make sure they can even get the allocation. If they are not a pretty large Corvette dealership there's a good chance they may not get an allocation for Z06's the first year.

Thanks for the feedback I have looked at MacMulkin's inventory and found the prices to be reasonable. Kerbeck in Atlantic City also said they would honor MSRP with no premium markups. I'll have to see if my local dealer will be getting a large allocation and what his price point will be.
