C6 Corvette won me over from Porsche.
After 63 years of driving, my 2006 C6 Corvette Base Convertible is my favorite car ever. Past sport cars include 3 versions of Mazda Miata, 14 Porsches (including 914/6, 1973 RS Carrera, 1967 911S soft window Targa, 1979 Turbo Carrera, and IMSA 914/6 track car). I dislike the Corvette weight, width in the garage, and lumbering response to the wheel, but the flatness in a turn and the throttle response are amazing. I find it absolutely beautiful to look at, and the auto transmission (6 Spd w/paddle shifters) is the first automatic I have enjoyed in a sport car. This is my first Corvette after all those Porsches, and I am amazed at the refinement and attention to detail in this car. Leather seats are fairly nice, but they are a little overshadowed by excess interior plastic. The black exterior blends with the black interior and leather, and softens the interior starkness somewhat, but the width of the door sill is an unusual inconvenience.
Vette owners are a particular group of people. We love and take care of our baby's. Mine is a 06 Daytona sunset orange 6speed it's a frickin rocket ship. If you can buy one do or enjoy yours
you drive one and you will buy one.nothingcompares
omg....I am a 56 year old Army veteran with 10 years of service.... I wanted a car that would check all the boxes....1- looks like a sports car with an attitude...2-drives like a car I have never experienced and driving is my passion.3-very comfortable sitting in the cockpit while taking corners or driving to the store.4-affordable to purchase compared to exotic sports cars out there.5- ABSOLUTELY fun to drive wow.......EVERY freakin box(please dont listen to people who complain about money spent on interior comfort and heavy materials.....)
COVID stopped me from driving for a year
I picked 4 stars because of shifter problems common on the C6 Corvette. I believe they are design problems, as I have never had this with ANY car I have owned over the last 50 years ( which is about 25 ). Problem:? won’t shift out of PARK, and if it does shifter cable breaks due to plastic/nylon connectors at each end. My other main complaint is EXTREMELY low front end making it difficult to drive ( without damage). On many roads, driveways, parking areas, etc. On the PLUS side...mpg is amazing for a 400 hp car with a 4 speed AT. 19-24 city / 28-32 on the freeway. And because of COVID last year, my car “only” has 195,000 miles! Let me know if you ever find someone with more miles...on their Corvette.
Traded a Mustang for my 2006 convertible almost 2 years ago and just hit 40,300 mi. 6 speed manual and is great for daily drive. Plenty of trunk room, the motor has a mean growl and the 1/4 shift......Nice!! I will keep this for the duration. Very happy overall!
