I have limited experience (a 1975 and the 01 Z06), but I can say there is no comparison between the two I've owned. Technology is a wonderful thing when applied correctly.

I agree that the Z06 is the "best vette yet". I don't however think it is the best during its time period. In MHO, that honor belongs to the '63 vette with its IRS and fuel injection, body style (it had a unique look) and long option list. During that time, GM poured their heart and soul into that car and while GM did a great job with the Z06, I can't help but think they held back a few goodies for the following years. Just my $.02 worth. Bill

This in number 18 for me . First on a 67 vert. All great cars in their own right. The 02 by far the fastest. Love all of them.

The Quickest Vette Yet is how Dave Hill signed my hood.
I would have to agree.

It is what it is
Still the Best

I am so happy with this one that it might be my last one. I don't see how it could get any better. Great exhaust sound, nice radio when you can hear it, good mileage for 405 plus HP. Who could want anything more?

The 2002 Corvette Z06 is the quickest, most agile and highest quality Corvette built in it's 49 year history. I have owned 17 Corvettes of all different generations and configurations and none compares to the current Corvettes.
This is not to say that the Corvette won't get even better in the future, I think it is all part of the game plan to make them better each year. I think Dave Hill listens to the enthusiasts and reacts to their complaints. I do think some of the current complaints such as the quality of the interior and so forth will be addressed in the near future.

10+ years later and now the C5 Z06 is the best performance bargain ever.

Re: zo6 best vette in history ?

Both gens of the Z are incredible performance "bang-for-the-buck" cars.
With the recent prices of the C5 gen Zs they are even more so.
