"I love my 2011 Grand Sport. I drive it mostly for pleasure but it did do daily driver use for awhile. Mine is the supersonic blue and I have no clue why this color wasn't more popular because it is beautiful, but I am glad it wasn't because it makes my car more unique. It is an amazing value for the money with a great magnetic ride suspension and handles great.
I love the C7 and looked at getting one when they came out, but I refuse to pay 100% of retail, let alone paying over sticker. The interior and the electronics on the C7 are nicer, but I don't like the design of the dash on the drivers side. It has an abrupt angle that the door goes under. So instead of getting a C7 I had a Hennessey Performance HPE 600 supercharger and a new shifter installed. A 525 RWHP car that gets 25 plus miles a gallon on the open road! I also installed an Alpine Stereo, speakers and a couple of amplifiers along with front and rear cameras, and it is more than amazing now.
The Corvette C6s are wonderful cars and amazing values! If you are looking I highly suggest the Grand Sport, Magnetic Ride and a six speed. If you get the glass roof you will need an after market interior heat shield in the summer. Mine was about $80.00 and looks like the factory interior when it is installed. Without it it gets annoying on a warm day."
"My 07 Corvette has 12k mi, is fast, fun & reliable. I don't know why I didn't jump on this w/ a C5 15 years ago! I've never had so much fun simply driving! I had said to myself "Self, only drive the car on weekends..." Well, that went out the window a few days after my purchase. It's been a DD and a Corvette summer! Can't imagine driving anything else, except when I have to transport family. I can't wait to get the new C7 Z06!"
"Best looks and performance for the money. Comfortable cruiser and very versatile. Glad to take off for a week, weekend or longer in this machine. Returns 28MPG Plus on Highway average 22 around town."
Cons: "Wide doors, low profile make parking challenging"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I have owned this car for 6 years. It is a blast to drive, especially on long trips. It has plenty of luggage space, and gets 28-30 mpg on trips. Sport suspension makes for a rough ride on rough roads. When you purchase this vehicle, you become a member of a brotherhood/sisterhood of Corvette owners.
