Just a member on a Corvette forum that seems to get respect from most of *************** members.. We're getting closer and closer to the C6 release, so.. We're probably getting more accurate information nowadays...

If Chevy gives Corvette buyers anything less, it would basically mean they've thrown up the white flag and come to the understanding that they're no longer America's best sports car. Personally, I doubt they're ready to simply give that up...
everything sounded right but the Z06 hp seems high...that will definitely kick the price of that way up...probably in the high 60's i would imagine

He also mentioned that the curent 345hp 6 liter engine on the Full Size pickups and Escalades, is being pushed to 400hp and that this will happen in the next model year (2004 due to appear in fall 2003).
they're gonna need it..."the most powewrful SUV on the planet" is not gonna be with the intro of the turbo Cayenne...i realize they are very different machines but nevertheless the porsche will be the most powerful

The Z06 costs the same as the regular C5 as it is now.. It costs less than the convertible.. It wouldn't be unreasonable to raise the price of the Z06 if it's going to take on the likes of the $75,000 Dodge Viper..

Keep in mind that the ZR-1 was about $20k more than the regular C4 back in the 90's...

i agree 100%..i was just pointing out that current pricing levels would be hard to maintain...but my opinion of the z06 was always bump the hp and bump the price and it would be fine with me...i believe they will keep it less than viper though

Yeah, probably less than the Viper.. I'm still shocked at what Dodge put together with the Viper.. Still, I think Corvette wants to have a fairly comfortable car. I wouldn't be surprised if the Vette isn't faster than the Viper - as long as it's close. I'd take a few tenths at a loss for a car that's drivable.. The Viper is extremely uncomfortable.. Heat coming up from the floor, incredible rattling and wheel-hop on rough surfaces.....

its an absolute nightmare...the first time i rode in my friends i broke the center console trying to get out...my head sticks out of the top so i look like barney rubble driving that log car and it was so jerky i thought i was gonna puke....my vette was so much more refined its ridiculous
