So, here's why I bought the Corvette Grand Sport. The requirement was a RWD, with good power, that I could take to the track without major mods. Also, reliability and cost of ownership were other key factors. I considered M3, M2, GT350, Cayman S, Camaro SS 1LE, etc. I was about to buy a 987.2 Cayman S, but I saw the car and didn't like as I thought I would (and the seller was a weirdo). Then I was negotiating a GT350 while looking for the C6 GS and a brand new SS 1LE. The GT350 was nice, but I didn't feel like paying the extra 15k-ish for it. The SS 1LE is one of the best performance for the buck cars in my opinion, with a 3 year warranty, but the 3800lb curb weight was a major downside. Back to the Vette, I've always loved it, but the reliability issues with the LS7 wouldn't make feel comfortable with taking it to the track and running the risk of coming back with a $15k bill. The C6 GS is basically a Z06 (with dry sump, oil cooler, big brake, wide body, etc) with the reliable (and less powerful 436hp vs 505hp) LS3. Or a lighter Camaro if you may. And it is $10k cheaper than a Z06 of same year. When I saw this one (13k miles, one owner, right price), I immediately liked it. And the seller was a great guy too (yeah, it matters to me). I'm very happy with it so far! I didn't feel any need for more power (let's see at the track). .
