2015 Corvette Z06 Pricing and Value

by Robert Nimocks

Raw Horsepower - 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z06 in blue

For 2015 the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is the most powerful production car ever produced from General Motors. The 2015 Z06 has a base price of $78,995, the convertible's base price is $83,995. While that may not be affordable for many, it is definetly a deal over its competitors.

The Corvette has often been compared to the pride of Germany, the Porsche 911. The most powerful 911 is the Turbo S rated at 560 hp and 516 lb-ft and costs $182,000, while the Z06 costs less than half and is rated at 650 hp and 650 lb-ft. Now that sounds like a value there.

Here is a chart for comparison, when we get complete road tests results, we'll add skidpad rating to the chart. While the Dodge Challenger Hellcat is the best HP/Dollar value, it can't compete on a road course and we wanted to add for those looking for Raw Horsepower.

VEHICLE COST HP
Chevrolet Corvette Z06 78,995 650
Audi R8 V10 173,500 550
Audi R8 115,000 430
Dodge Viper 101,880 640
Dodge Challenger Hellcat (not a track car) 59,995 707
Ferrari FF 295,000 651
Ferrari 458 Italia 233,509 507
Ford GT (2005) 150,000 550
Nissan GT-R 101,770 545
Porsche 911 Turbo S 182,700 560
Porsche Cayman GTS 75,200 340


A Raptor trip through Colorado

Southwest and Central Colorado offer some amazing scenery, hiking trails and offroad trails. We traveled through the area checking out a few trails and experienced some heavy summer rain, something not seen in the drought ridden Southern California area. The trip from Marble Colorado to Crystal Colorado and the famously pictured mill is only a six mile trek on a rough and narrow, but can be performed by many vehicles slowly and carefully. The video shows just after an small hill and a flat drive past a small lake and covers 39 minutes in real time.

The Stormtrooper Look is a Modern Favorite

The popularity of white vehicles as been increasing lately. Some think Apple transformed white to the new "cool" color of style. White vehicles have always been abundant due to their ease of care and the ability to stand out against other color. The most evident color selection with the highest contrast is black on white also known as the Stormtrooper look, sinister and stylish.
