Has she driven any of the three? As previously noted, they are VERY different cars to live with. There's a huge difference between someone saying that she likes those three cars based on looks/specs and someone who has spent some time with all three cars.

Hmm..you're right about that. We have a 07 Mustang right now that she loves but she bought that more for me than for "us". I know she used to own a Camero and Trans Am but I don't think she has ever had a corvette or a viper. I think she likes the corvette because of the looks and the specs that she reads about it and the viper mainly because its unique and collectable.

Honestly, she needs some time behind the wheel of each of them before you plunk down money.

A side note to consider: the sports car market takes a hit once snow starts to fly. You can use this to your advantage to find a great deal.

Sorry but there is no comparison. 911 will not corner like a Z06,

On a straight away they are ok but give it a turn and hang on your in on coming lane.

I spent a day instructing driving for amatures with SCCA, drove both the 911 and a corvette. 911 was pretty much a dog. Sorry

I just sold my ZR1 and it broke my heart my husband has promised me a C6 Z06 of course it has to be yellow.

If I had my choice of course I would pick the Vett the true American Sports Car that is if she like to drive and at times drive hard, the cornering is to die for they are so tight and for long trips they are great. Nothing like cruising along and then decide to punch it for a few miles, man what a rush.

2002 Chevy Camero convertible Z28 SS 35th Anniversary edition. V8 6speed red with black interior.
