Public Service Announcement: 2014 C7 Corvette Stingrays Are Starting To Become Quite Affordable2
Depreciation can be a real bear sometimes. But, for those of us in the market, it’s a great thing. It means we can find dream cars for affordable prices sometimes. That is certainly becoming the case with the 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray as Jalopnik reports.
Prices for the seventh generation of Chevrolet’s sports car have fallen under $40,000 in many cases with bearable mileage on them to boot.
One listing has a 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray priced at $38,944, and another certified 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray at just $41,000. These aren’t base models either. They’re higher trims with premium audio systems, fancier leather trimmings, navigation and more. Let’s not forget, the 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray is still rocking the same 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine, which produces a very healthy 460 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.
Now, potential buyers have a tough choice. Does a used C6 Corvette Z06 fit the bill? Or does springing for the C7 Corvette Stingray sound like a better choice? The market is now in your favor, Corvette dreamers.

Too bad Jaopnik is a failed crappy wannabe car Web site.
Well, the LT1 needs the performance exhaust option to reach 460 HP but I guess I shouldn’t quibble over a measly 5 HP.
This is article echos my dilemma. Depreciation on ‘Vettes is so crazy it’s not hard to find C7s with well under 10,000 miles $20,000-30,000 off MSRP.
I’ve been flirting with buying a C7 and keep weighing the lightly optioned LT1 versus used decision. Unfortunately for me the car must have a manual transmission which knocks out 77% of the market. Then I strongly prefer a convertible causing my options to plunge to pitiful. Your mileage may vary.
