Corvette = sports car... not as soft on the road. The interior is ok. Yeah its not a Bentley but its not a POS either. For the $$ a corvette is the best high performance car you can get hands down. For less then 80K 505HP from the factory... 08 will be 535 for the z06 and 435hp for the reg model. That is crazy considering the normal model is the price of the 335. If you want pure performance go corvette if you want more luxury/softer car go BMW.
Chevy is also planning a new super high end model of the vette that is going to be between 630 and 700HP. That is supercar territory for a hellava lot less then a supercar. When this does come out I might jump ship to a vette.
