2005 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (6.0L 8cyl 6M)


I've owned several Porsches and always
respected the power of Corvettes but
thought their handling left something
to be desired. Those days are gone.
This car out-accelerates, out-handles,
out-brakes, and out-looks any of the
Porsches I've owned. The engine has
the sound of a jet whine combined with
that ripping canvas Ferrari growl. Its
intoxicating. I got the Z51 suspension
with a 6 speed and leaving it in 3rd
on a Mt. road lets repeatedly hear the
V8 burble which you can feel in your
stomach. With the Z51 there is no body
lean and it feels like a slot car
around corners. The car really doesn't
have a weak spot. Best sports car buy
this century, it's like getting a
Ferrari for $50k.

Best Features

Looks, engine, handling, brakes. The G force meter on the heads up display is a must.

Worst Features

Fit and finish is very good but not perfect. The rubber air dam scrapes most driveways.
