I know people say don't care what other people think but no one spends 65k on a car and not care somewhat about prestige. This lack of prestige has real world effects on the value. You can get used base models in the upper 30's now.
I have a loaded 2017 ZO6 3 LT, 7 speed manual, big brakes, etc.
I did not buy it to impress anybody or for prestige, I bought to drive!
When I went out to Nevada for 2 days at the Ron Fellows Corvette Performance Driving School and I got to drive a car exactly like mine on the track I was impressed. Those people who say they would not get one probably can't afford one. Every time I get behind the wheel I get big smile on my face even though I can only use about 50 percent of what the car can do on the street.
