  • Anyone else keeping their Z06 manual?

    I bought a new one to replace my 2015. It is one sweet ride. I plan on seeing what the new exciting C8 has to offer when but right now I'm enjoying the Z06.

    If I were a ZO6 guy, as I have a Stingray, I would keep the ZO6 till the C8 Z came out. You have something the C8 most likely will never have a manual and you got more power.

      I don't have a Z06. Have a 2017 Grand Sport Convertible 7sp. The idea of getting rid of it is spoiling my anticipation of getting a new C8. My thinking is that I will get a very low trade in value and will be paying full msrp for a new C8-which will then depreciate faster than my old C7. Not a situation I relish. I think I will most likely keep my Grand Sport. It is my favorite out of all the Corvettes I have owned.

        Yes, I'm keeping mine. I've had it since it was new; it still is lots of fun to drive.
        2002 Z06, bought in 2001.

          I just bought my '19 M7 Z06 a few months ago, no intention of selling it. I will be keeping it for a long time, and if I get a C8, the C8 will be in addition not a replacement.

              Just got mine so heck yeah, I’m not only keeping it, I’m driving it C8 stingray is great and its variants yet to come will be amazing. I don’t see myself having two corvettes at a time so I’m not sure if/when I’ll move to the next gen but I will happily row my own until that day comes.

              I enjoyed my ‘16 M7 Stingray but getting one of the last FE manuals in Z06 form was a notion I had a couple years ago and a month or so ago, with help from Mike Furman, I followed through. So glad I did.

                People need to remember the number of C8's will out number the total number of C7 Z06's produced in just the first year of production. Even more rare are the M7's. 2018 less than 700 total were produced.

                  Interesting. Glad I have a manual. Have had both and prefer the manual. Although I am ready for a dual clutch.
