the ZO6 was not worth a $25k premium for me over my 07 coupe.
at a premium of almost $29k over what I paid,
WITHOUT DEALER MARK UP?
GM can KISS MY ASS !!!!
I know how the ZO6 provides supercar performance.
I know the competition has significantly higher MSRP than the Z.
With that being said,
I'll take the $30k I saved and either invest or modify.
All this while having the option,
OF A REMOVABLE TOP !!!!!
The ZO6 should never had been priced more than $10k over the coupe.
We didn't NEED carbon fiber, magnesium, aluminum, etc.
The weight savings was NOT significant.
But, the PRICE TAG was.
The ZO6 brakes have not proven to be "optimal".
the LS7 is AWESOME.
I would have paid an extra $10k TOTAL for the extra power, braking, and looks.
Bear in mind,
GM charges you TWICE for the parts in the Z.
It's not like you are paying the DIFFERENCE of the LS2 and LS7.
It's like you are buying BOTH engines.
$10k over the MSRP of a coupe,
with a removable roof OPTION,
and yes I would have bought an 06Z.
But at almost $29k over,
WITHOUT DEALER MARK UP,
GM can keep their Z.
I guess I'll be looking for the best price on 4:10 gears, headers, CAI, installation, and tuning when race season is over and tuner business slows down.
I'm thinking around January.
Yes the Z will outperform me,
but the mods I'll do and the $25k in my pocket will comfort me.
Can't wait for the Blue Devil/SS and it's MSRP to be released.
GM could have kept the ZO6 for the working class horsepower junkie;
AND saved the Blue Devil/SS for the elite who will pay anything for the "privledge" of a halo car.
The SS will probably push me to add a twin turbo to my coupe to equal or beat it's performance.
I think you are pricing yourself out of the market.
To all those that disagree with me.
I admit I could be wrong.
But, hold your conclusions for late 06/early 07 when the moneybags, must haves, and early adopters have all paid through the nose for 06/07 ZO6.
I believe the MSRP, not to mention the DEALER MARK UPS, cannot last after these guys are out of the market.
ESPECIALLY, after the Blue Devil/SS enters the equation.
