Not a car I would be interested in. Primarily, and am I the first one to notice, "NO DAMN MANUAL TRANSMISSION IS AVAILABLE!".

Hard pass right there. Frigging flappy paddles!

I dunno, because both my 911's were 996's.

The 1st one I owned didn't have it, and the 2nd one did, & I could really tell the difference in performance.

The more I think about it, the less I like the Z06 for $200k.

The regular Corvette with the Z51 power kit is fast enough, unless you plan to become a track rat.

I can buy a 2024 for $130k w/ the power kit, & 3LT interior trim...that includes the dealer mark-ups.

The Z06 could be a nice garage queen investment to look at, & hold for 20+ years.

I think I'll wait to see what they do with the 2025 model.

I hate those glass roofs on the 992's...especially in Florida.

Corvette's have the pop out hardtop design that I like. I don't think I'd get the convertible...too hot here in FLA most of the time, & its just something else to break, and cost me money.

I bet I'd hardly ever pop out the roof panel. I dont like all the wind noise, & UV exposure.
