In case you do not get a response, coming from a Corvette guy, 9 of them, last one a 2012 Grand Sport, buy the ZL1!

To add to that, I've owned 2 Z06 corvettes and this car is superior in a few important ways.

It can ride much softer due to the magnetic suspension.

The seats are much better. They actually hold me in my seat during severe cornering.

There are more creature comforts, like Bluetooth, Mylink and a backup camera.

I was genuinely worried that I would regret trading in my Z06, but I do not. If this wasn't my daily driver my opinion might be different.

If you can't find a ride, just do it. I can't imagine you would regret it.

Indiana has a 7% sales tax and a gas guzzler tax, just not the same crime rate as NJ.. My gas guzzler tax was $2,500.

Ha ha...true.
But I am desperate.
It is hard to commit that much $$$ without being certain it is the right decision.
Thanks to those who provided their insights.
They are very much appreciated.

Too bad you're in Jersey, I offered a guy in Alabama a ride down the drag strip to help him make up his mind, he didn't take me up on it, whatever


Good luck to you, it's an awesome car, hope you get one

Too bad for him...he would have had 12 seconds to make up his mind.
Thanks again for everyone's feedback.

At this point, I am probably going to pull the trigger this weekend.
According to the dealer's rep, this would assure delivery by the end of July.
Unfortunately, there are no deals to be had with the dealers around here.
Paying sticker makes me sad...
