Question Tempting offer on a Corvette, need your opinion!!

A month ago I made this guy an offer of $50,000.00 CDN for this car. $6K less than asking price. It was too low at that time, now he emailed me saying he may accept it. What do I do. It is a 2006 Z06 with 15 thousand miles on it. manual trans, after market stereo, navigation. what do I pick?? this or the 2SS/RS LS3, SIM with CGM rally stripes that should ship any day. Camaro was only going to be driven on nice days, back seats barely used if any.

Are you serious? Silver with Gray stripes? For some reason I don't think that would look right...maybe I'm not picturing it right?

well yes the Z06 is more powerful, but if you live in an area that has lots of hills like where i am i say take the camaro because its further off the ground with less of a chance of you bottoming out. plus the camaro is brand new and its always nice to have a new car

I think the Camaro is more practical, TCO is less and full warranty ......

Z06, tons of guys use the for daily drivers and the 2006 model is the fast one...just make sure the roof recall has been done if not it's a free dealer fix..

Ah, I see you have the same decision that I have tormented myself with every day since I joined this site, and even before that. The answer is this. Do you want a badass car that goes really fast, or do you want a badass car that goes pretty fast while hauling a couple friends around. That is really all it comes down to. Both cars have the wow factor right now. there is no reason you should be dissapointed with either car, but in this case, my vote goes for.....you've got the cash, go for The red one.

Is the Corvette still under warranty AND is the warranty transferable?

That would be a major consideration for me.

Which would you rather have? Are you financing? Is the money an issue? How much difference are you talking bottom line and is that worth it to you because either one will be awesome.

Good luck either way.

Vette 1st...always

There really is no comparison. If you've never owned a Vette, get the Vette.

Have you ever owned a vette? They are an amazing machine no doubt about that. My father-in-law is a vette guy and have taken rides with him in them and can tell you they are a totally different animal then the camaro. Personally with 2 boys i have no use for a vette as they would always want to be with me so 2 seater ftl. I went to a local vette show with a 2010 camaro that was around i spent the whole time staring at the camaro lol. The vette's did nothing for me personally. Also you haven't sat in a low car till you sit in one of these puppies. Love to watch them drive by though on the roads.

I like my Camaro, but everytime I drive the Vette the true winner is apparent.
Definetely go for the Vette. You will not be disappointed.

I would personally correct this and say "Do you want a badass car that goes really fast, or do you want a badass car that goes really fast?"

It's a win/win so long as the condition of the cars are both exceptional.

Then my main points come down to the warranty issue. Check into it (transferability) and have the car inspected professionally if you can.

That is a hard call. How bad do you want a brand new car? The camaro will have never been driven, and all the miles will be put on by you. You ordered the car, so it will exactly the way you want it to be.

However, that is a good price for the vette, and 15,000 is not a lot of miles. I am assuming that you know how the car was driven/treated/maintained so that shouldnt be a concern.

They are both serious hardware and there is not a wrong choice to be made here.

The question that only you can answer is what do you think is the best fit for you?

I'd say go for the Camaro SS! Puts the Corvette to shame (in the looks dept.)!!
In my personal opinion, the Corvette is a cheap looking sports car. But thats ME.

Keep in mind though, that the Corvette C6 is at the end of it's life cycle. It would suck to drop $50k on a car just for it to be old and outdated in a year or so. Versus the Camaro, which I would assume still has a few (3-6) premium years in it before a major re-design.
