Young soon to be former 350Z owner from Texas.

Hello everyone, I currently own an '07 350Z - Hope to obtain a Night Race Blue C7 in the future.

I'm younger than the "normal" Corvette owner, I'm 31. The "younger marketing" thing is working GM. Congrats on making a car that's worth a damned again.

Oh, to be 31 again! By the time I was your age I was on to my third Vette. Now at 68 my forth is on order, a yellow coupe, manual and Z51 package. Cars keep us all boys at heart. My son has a 370Z. It's awesome.

I do think ''younger'' marketing its working, but at the end of it dont really matter the age you are, if you like the car n can afford it, go 4 it.
Im 30, (RBSDWP) Order submitted.
From Mcallen,TX and placed my order on a dealer at San Antonio.

Cheers

Honestly it's not so much the marketing IMO, I think the more modern design of the car is what does it. I've always liked the corvettes, but this one does appeal to me much more than any others before it. I'm 21, I'd say it whatever they did worked. Had to do a little budget reworking, but certainly willing to cut back in some places to make this car work for me.

I'm 23, always loved the corvettes and love the stingray even more. However, I do need a back seat for now. From what i've learned, never go with the first year production model so i'm going to wait a couple years until they work the kinks out.

Age is but a number...

I think the car appeals to all ages. They did a great job on really making a world class car that can be appreciated by all!

I'm 28 and placed an order for a black Z51 with black rims and red calipers last month! Currently have a 2011 BMW Z4, but doesn't even come close to the new Stingray.
