C6 Chevrolet Corvette: Coupe VS. Convertible - A Tale Of Two Vettes

We Wring Out A Pair Of Supercars That Don't Disappoint.

Again, these cars are definitely improvements on the previous two model years of C6s. The refinements might be subtle, but we can definitely notice them, and look forward to 2008 and beyond, when the reality of the 436hp LS3 and some newer, more powerful version of the ZO6 shows up (Blue Devil, SS, ZO7, whatever you want to call it). We will be waiting with open arms and sweaty palms, chomping at the bit to get behind the wheel of one of Chevrolet's all-time most popular vehicles. And to that end, let's just say that if Zora Arkus-Duntov were still around, he would be very impressed with these two automobiles.
