In today’s community question, we decided to toy with your heart strings a bit. With the 2017 C7 Corvette Grand Sport as the new kid on the block, does it do enough to sway you away from a 2016 C7 Corvette Z06?
Thankfully, these two beasts don’t compete with each other, but only strengthen the Corvette’s brand. The C7 Corvette Grand Sport takes nearly everything that makes the C7 Z06 so great, and places it together with the 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine. That includes some styling cues, but also its aerodynamics and extra grip.
The C7 Corvette Z06 it still in a totally different league, though. Its 6.2-liter LT4 supercharged V8 engine dials things up way past 11. The power is there for better or for worse, with some saying there’s simply too much power for the car to handle. That’s for the individual to decide.
Either Corvette variant would make a lovely companion, but we’d have to take home the Grand Sport in this situation. We love the supercharged small-block, but natural aspiration is oh so charming.
