According to the NCM magazine:

Q: Will the Z06 be offered in more than just the hardtop?

DH: "The Z06 is for the extreme performance enthusiast who is happy to trade off creature comforts and open air for the best overall performance possible. We intend to keep the Z06 one pure performance car and continue it as a fixed-roof coupe.".

Thank You Mr. Zip :D

That's the best news I've had all day ;) And, it makes sense to keep it exclusive and distinctive :cool:

:cheers:

It's amazing to me how many Corvette "enthusiasts" think the Z06 is merely an engine package. :roll:

I asked Dave Hill this same question at Carlisle. He replied with a very firm "No, it would ruin the car." I am sure that he has been asked this over and over again. At the time I had an '01 Z51 6spd. convertable, that I thought was rigid enough for the Z06 pkg. Personally, I don't think if they made a Z06 coupe or convertable it would ruin the car, but, I do think it would put a big damper on the hardtop model Z06 as we know it today. You only have to look at the slim sales of the '99 &'00 FRC's. JMHO:)

Deja Vu

Isn't this "old" news or did it come up again with DH in a post or live chat?

Thanks Zipster. I didn't want to be (diluted) with the other models.

Z06 FRC

I agree with Dave .It would ruin it all if the Z06 was available in the other two body styles. Being an FRC adds to its uniqueness!!!

Zipper,

Thanks for the great info.! I think they should keep the Z in a hard top only.
