Since there's so many opinions out there, lets start a pool, and everybody who posts, will owe 1 beer to the winner, to be collected at the first Z06 drive-in someday.
Base price, no options included, destination charge not included.
No guesses within $100 of somebody else already guesing, so it pays to enter early.
I open at $51,995
I think GM wants to raise the price to have the premium Corvette, and will keep raising it next year, so by 2004 they can have a "super-premium" C6 in the 65k range. JMO. Besides, the higher they make the C6, the higher the new Cadillac sports car can sell for.
