The Corvette will be welcoming a new iteration into the C7 generation of the famed sports car. The 2017 C7 Corvette Grand Sport will arrive this summer, and Chevrolet officially priced the track-prepped, supercharger-less Corvette last week.
The 2017 Corvette Grand Sport will start at $66,445 for a coupe, and rise to $70,445 if you decide to lower the top for a convertible variant. This puts the Grand Sport in a nice sweet spot between a base C7 Corvette Stingray, and the starting price for a C7 Corvette Z06. However, is the premium over a regular Stingray justifiable with the Grand Sport?
For about $10,000 more from a base Stingray, the Grand Sport is adding quite a bit. The downforce-producing aero package, enhanced cooling systems, stickier Michelin Pilot Super Sport rubber and more allows the Grand Sport to pull an impressive 1.05 g in cornering capability. Should you add the optional Z07 package, it’s 1.2 g. That also includes even grippier Pilot Cup 2 tires.
So, for this community question, we do truly think the price reflects a sweet spot for the Corvette. We’d happily plunker down an additional $10,000 to get Z06 capabilities with Stingray livability. But, we want to hear from you, of course.
