Amazing in every way - beyond expectations

Had my Grand Sport for 2 months and 2,000 miles. Took a long time but I found a 1LT with a manual transmission - love the launch control! Replaces and blows away my 911RS. Never thought that would happen. Performance is great and handling is beyond belief. Will replace Goodyear tires with Michelins when they wear out - hear they are spectacular. Interior is on par with a 911 with standard seats. Porsche lets you upgrade to sport seats for a lot of $. Lots of room for golf clubs & errand runs in the back. And 26 mpg on the highway. (if you can slow down to 70). Only problem is the ease with which it can be driven fast. Need a new radar detector. Can't believe GM can build a car like this. I've had Camaros, Trans Ams, Silverados & Suburbans - but this is like another company built it. Still have to deal with the Chevy dealer though.

First, don't buy this vehicle is you are looking for something practical. It is a toy, show off car, and for someone who enjoys performance. I have read all the expert reviews with the only complaint being the interior. I really don't see what they are talking about. The seats are very comfortable and quality is throughout the cockpit. Also, I bought a 3LT Convertibile. With the top on, the vehicle is a little louder than a Coupe, but for me it was worth the extra money. I live in sunny Southern Cal., so I will be driving topless a lot. This is a car that you will baby and you should. The exterior beauty of a Vette is a work of art and something you should be proud to drive. I love this car and its a good example of quality American engineering.

Great ride. Eye candy. The 4LT Package is more than I require but was included with the car. I would not pay $3500 extra for this option. Loads of options. Not crazy about the built in Navigation system. Prefer my external Garmin, which I still use in this car. Love the power top and the select ride option. Overall, a great car.

2011 Grand Sport Convertible

We've now owned our 2011 Corvette GS torch red convertible for approx 3 months (3300 total miles), and we love it. The ride, handling, and performance are much better than the 2002 Vette convertible which we traded in. We just got back from a 1700 mile trip to Michigan driving both back roads and interstate with no problems at all. The ride is super on any kind of road surface. We checked the mileage on smooth level roads with cruise control on, and at 60 mph we got 30 mpg and at 75, we got 27 mpg. We averaged appox 25 mpg over the entire trip with the truck full of baggage. The negatives todate are that it was necessary to get all four wheels balanced and a full alignment at approx 900 miles. Also, do to what the dealer called poor surface preparation, the underside of the trunk lid was flaking paint and had to be resanded and painted. Lastly, the brake dust is horrible on the GS. It is much worse than on my old 2002 model. It's very disappointing that they didn't correct this problem from the initial 2010 model. They won't do it, but GM should do a recall on the standard brake pads. In summary though, we love the car!

Really pleased with this car

by from Ply Mtg, PA on December 5, 2012

This is my 2nd Vette. The performance far exceeds any other car I've owned. Great cornering. Excellent acceleration. Perfect braking.

Overall an incredible car for the money. Every time I step on the throttle I have to smile. If I can find a deficiency it's with the interior. It seems so plain and un remarkable. Also I do hear a few buzz's and rattles going over bumps or on a rough road. Despite this I would buy this car again. I really think it's the best sports car in the worls for the money. I paid around $42K for the base model and I'm seeing them now for $37K, Wow!
