2006 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

2006 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is an American sports car. So when GM tossed me the keys to a 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible, it was thrilling. After all, the 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible lists for $51,390 with a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty and an EPA estimate of 17 mpg city/27 mpg highway.
If you've always dreamed of a Corvette, the 2006 Corvette Convertible is the most technologically advanced, roadworthy and usable Corvette you could imagine. I loved driving it around. For $70,000 you get a 505 hp monster with a 7.0 liter V8 engine that will undoubtedly pin you to your seat at full throttle. By some measures, the 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is a bargain. Measure it against the Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet, Dodge Viper or BMW Z4 M Roadster, and the horsepower per dollar equation favors the Chevy. It may be the best bang for the buck in the category.

The challenge for Corvette comes not from above, but from below. How can you justify spending over $50,000 for a Chevrolet Corvette Convertible when you can pick up a Mazda MX-5 Miata, a Pontiac Solstice GXP or a Saturn Sky Red Line for under $30,000? Or how about a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Convertible, which is rated to produce 505 hp for around $47,000?

The good news is that there are lots of good choices out there. I can't wait to drive them all - but I would gladly drive the Corvette Convertible every day.
