SS, ZL1 or Stingray?

So, as of right now I have a 2014 2LS that I got some months ago. I'm got the means financially to upgrade to either one of the cars listed in the title but I'm torn.

This car WILL be my daily driver, so I need some opinions on what to go with. I was going to wait until the 16's come out to see the SS and ZL1 and see if I want to upgrade to one of those, I haven't done much research on the Stingray but I LOVE the look, I love the car. One downside, I don't know how to drive stick, don't make fun of me xD

Anyways, what would you guys go with? It'll be a daily driver and I'm 19, single with no kids, lol. All opinions and suggestions I would love to hear, I'm just torn.

i rode in a vette the other day and a few weeks prior i had driven an SS which was fast. I knew the vette was going to be faster than the camaro but i never expected it to be THAT FAST. Holy shit that thing blew my mind. I mean i have driven a v10 r8 in the past and i honestly think this vette is faster. just a wanted to give you my experience. (the vette was a non-z51)

That's the thing, I am very young to even have to ability to own one of these cars but I'm in a good situation due to my parents, not due to me haha. I love the look of the ZL1, the thing is can you see that car being a daily driver? And do I wait for the 16's or go get a 15 ZL1.

Keep your car and buy some real-estate.

Your young...it will turn into a much larger sum of money down the road.

Unless you have millions then just ignore what I said. lol

Is this a real question? Get a Stingray.

OP . unless u are a self made millionaire, keep what you got and be happy and spend the money on YOU, a college education, trade school, and get a house. you are 19 for crying out loud. what will you want when you are 25? A 200K priced sports car? you are young and have a life ahead of you. spending big bucks at your age for a ZL1 or stingray just seems silly. get your life, education, house in order first. just my opinion. you want what us "older" guys have been working so hard to get for years you want it now. you are lucky to just have a new camaro. be happy and satisfied and invest in YOU! good luck.
