Drove it home from a dealer 700 miles away, the only place that had the one I wanted available. Frankly amazed with the quality, fit and finish of this new generation beasty. I'm seventy and was willing to put up with what I remembered about corvettes from the old days, because I love the new look. On the road . . . the adjustable setting of the suspension actually worked! It was compliant and smooth beyond expectation. Quiet and comfortable, the only challenge was sussing out the computer system, it is hugely powerful and multilevel. Econo-box: Left Boise full and filled up in Fernly Nevada, on my way to SFO. At Fernly I was able to reset all the computerized tracking systems to zero. My Trip to SFO, about 300 miles, at an average of 65-75 mph netted me an overall average mileage of 32.5 mpg. I have a witness . . . unreal, unexpected and very gratifying. Definatly not something that had entered into my buying decision, but welcome. Buy it you'll be able to justify it with the good vibe that it carries!!

In a word...........WOW!!!!!!!

I have always wanted a Corvette. I only have one regret ,that I waited so long to buy one. It looks great runs even better and it's scary fast. Everybody admires the way it looks but you have to drive it to really appreciate what this Stingray can do. It is an awesome car. It makes it fun to drive anywhere. The adjustable ride control is great E for economy the car runs on 4 cylinders for great gas mileage and still has reasonable power switch it to sport and acceleration from any speed is never a problem even has track mode for the track. I can not say enough about how fun it is to drive......oh and it projects the speed onto the windshield along with other useful info so you don't have to take your eyes off the road to see it.....is that cool or what? I may not be the best judge of this car compared to other years or other sports cars because I have never had either I just love my car .....the attention it gets.......the power it has .......it is simply AWESOME!!!!

Simply Amazing

I drove to Atlantic City today in my black C6 and drove home in a torch red C7. I also owned a C5. The C7 is simply amazing. The styling is outstanding and the interior is finally one to be proud of. The drive home was exhilarating. The power is terrific and the ride smooth and quiet. Once home I spent two hours sitting in it I the garage getting acquainted with the technology and the various features. Sadly it is going to rain the next few days so in the garage it will stay. But once the sun comes out I'll be out cruising. If you're thinking about one I say pull the trigger. You get a supercar at a fraction of the price of the all others. Oh... I forgot to mention....it turns heads as you drive down the road!

This is the best Corvette made to date. It buries my 2007 Vette, and they got everything right. Great ride, styling, creature features, and all I get is thumbs up as others see it. I have been stopped by Cops just to see it! It will take a little while to get use to the new features, but it worth the time experimenting.

Worth the wait

by from Las Vegas on May 2, 2014

I've had 5 previous vettes from the 70's and 80's, all new. Since then I've had foreign sports cars, SL 550, Jaguar XK8, Lexus SC430. This is the first car I've ordered. I couldn't be happier. The app...
I've had 5 previous vettes from the 70's and 80's, all new. Since then I've had foreign sports cars, SL 550, Jaguar XK8, Lexus SC430. This is the first car I've ordered. I couldn't be happier. The appearance, the ride, the lack of road noise inside the car and the performance is the best ever. This vette may not have the bells and whistles the others have had but what a car and what a head turner. The ride far exceeds my expectations and the performance is awesome.

Just purchased my 2014 stingray convertible. I love everything about it. I fell in love with it the minute I saw one at a show and decided I had to have it. Availability in color and style was limited, but I found one I liked. I got a Z51 3LT with performance exhaust and magnetic ride control. It is very fast and the torque curve just keeps going and going. I love the heads up display. Still have to get used to all the features on it.

The BEST bang for the buck!

An excellent package for the price. Well worth between 53K-75K depending on what options fit your needs & wants. The interior quality is topnotch. The all-new style is superb; it looks exotic at all angles. Forget the past, this is the new game-changer Corvette! And it's about time! Thos stuck with the past are in denial or just jealous, IMO. The power, balance, handling, and technological features rival sports cars that are tens of thousands more. The performance is exemplary. Leisure driving or on the track, the new Stingray will give you lots of smiles. Can't say enough about it... heck, the proof is in the pudding- look at all the continuous awards it is accumulating, worldwide. Like I said, this is a great deal and lots of performance car for the money.

I ordered and bought the car sight unseen. When I got the car I was without words to describe how pleased I was. This is my 5th Corvette and by far the best one yet. The power, the ride, the adaptable controls, the personalization options available, the 5 drive modes are superb. The convertible top that is now fully powered works beautifully. I would highly recommend this car to anyone that had doubts about the new C7

What a great car! I flew to Rhode Island to pick it up. Paul Masse Chevrolet was the best deal by far. Dave Wellington, Jr was great to work with. I wanted Laguna Blue with Kalahari Brown interior. Made the deal and got it the next weekend. I put 953 miles on her the first day. 32.6 mpg without cruise control. The car is beautiful; the interior is beautiful although I would like a more refined 7" navigation & radio display. The only thing I would improve and that is just being fussy. The seats are so comfortable. After 1,000 miles, I was ready for more. Everywhere - and I mean everywhere, I get looks, photos, questions... 100% positive. Everyone, including the Porsche, BMW & Audi people love it. Great car. What a thrill to drive!

2015 Corvette Z51 3LT luxury & performance

The performance exhaust is a must for anyone who buys the new Stingray. Even when turned on, the sound is very reasonable when cruising. When you push it, it is fantastic both in sound and performance. The 3LT package is extra nice with the NAV and lots of leather. The back up camera is large and really practical on a car that is otherwise extreme. Even as a tall guy, I fit nicely, just not lots of choices. The driving mode selections are fun and there is a noticeable change from one to another. Honestly hit 32 mpg on my first 150 mile trip. WOW.
