Arrow 2014 C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Pricing Tipped at $71,860?

Has the approximate price for the C7 Corvette Stingray Coupe been revealed GM's Win-A-Corvette-Sweepstakes?

The contest, which is officially run by GM, lists an approximate retail value of $82,610 (listed in the contest's official rules PDF) for the winning package. But, the rules specifically lists an Approximate Retail Value ("ARV") of $71,860 for the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

There's no indication whether the winner's C7 will include the Z51 performance package nor what other options/packages it will be equipped with, but this figure at least gives us a ballpark estimate of the C7 Corvette Stingray coupe's price range.

i'm going to go ahead and call it now; a full optioned stingray sits at that price. time to save up that $72k!


//edit

actually...

reading the pdf regarding contest rules, this part specifically:

"Winner is responsible for title, license, registration, dealer preparation costs, auto insurance
and other fees associated with prize."

ie tax is included as well as destination... unassumingly that they would fail safe the tax at the highest in the nation possible (10% in Birmingham, AL)

http://taxes.about.com/od/statetaxes...and-lowest.htm

that brings the cost down to ~$65,327. take off the usual $795 for destination and you come to possible MSRP of:

$64,532...





thoughts?

It's for a fully loaded Z51 model.

I think the 72k makes sense as well.

If you take a stock C6 at 50k plus the '...if you can afford a C6 you will be able to afford the C7...' delta at say 10% puts it at 55k.

4LT on the 2013 is 10k puts it at 65k

Add the Z51 and Magnetic Ride probably does get you close.

Where do I go to enter this

price seems about right! Very surprised if that's fully loaded. I actually expected a little more.

Ya maybe a fully loaded 3LT with the Z51 package will be around that price... If that's starting price I know a lot of people including myself will not be purchasing the C7 :(

I have read some posts on "the other forum" from folks who were at NAIAS and the statement they reported was "base will be under $60K" and then that was quickly amended to "well under $60K". It's 3rd party hearsay and definitely NOT admissible in a court of law . Plus it was free so might be a case of you get what you pay for. I'm still going for the 10% school of thought, $54K-ish for a 1LT no-option stripper. If you compare to the C6 GS, then a 3LT Z51 could push $65,000 pretty easily, maybe $70K with all the options.

LMAO - come to think of it, a stripper with no options doesn't sound like much fun huh?

I've read the same thing. Below 60k. I personally think it will be around 54,XXX. Which would make me pretty happy. If not....Well, shit....

Actually as far as the new C7 goes.... this all new stripper already comes with plenty of standard features that would have been optional prior... so a base model stripper would still be a happy ending.

Many want a Kate Upton but won't complain at all if they settled with a Kaley Cuoco...

I'm hoping this is the case

They did say if you can afford the current vette then you'd be able to afford the new one!

right now, the 'Vette I would price out is a GS, 2LT, NPP, mag shocks and add a transparent roof. MSRP = $60,800 + 6% Maryland state sales tax +$250 registration/title so call it $65K roughly. It's awfully hard to beat that, especially with the ridiculous discounting going on now (the mega dealers will probably do that for $49K right now). Even with a 10% increase, you're looking at one hell of a ride for $66K MSRP. Give it a year for some discounting to take place and I'm there.

IMHO.... It might seem like a great price for the value (and it is)..... For those of us who are "baby boomers"....most will probably still get the C7--if they had planned on it in the first place.

However, touching 60K for a 2LT C7 is going to do just the opposite of what GM was trying to do.....lure the younger generations. Of course there will always be "x" % that can afford it, but if GM believes they can sell 30k cars at a starting price of 54k and up....I think they have greatly miscalculated. Especially in this economy with the cost of everything rising...

I hope I'm wrong....

I was born in 1964 so that makes me a late boomer/early Gen X (God, how depressing). Probably a little old for GM's intended new "youth" target. But you're only talking 45,000 units per year max for C7 production. Given the money spent on exotics, Harleys and other toys, I really think that Chevy will achieve their goal of moving the age demographics down somewhat. A $60K 'Vette isn't cheap but these are the days of a $40K Camaro ($60K for a ZL1), $45K pickups and $60K SUV's. I think there are enough gearheads out there that would plop down the $ for the C7. We'll really have to see if Tadge & the boyz & girls from Bowling Green have delivered what they've promised later this summer. I certainly hope so - can't wait to drive it.

Younger generations can't afford the current C6 anyways. The point was to appeal to younger buyers and get them interested in Chevrolet and GM again.

I'm talking people right out of college who are just entering the workforce. Even the majority of people in your age bracket can't afford a $50k car right off the bat.

the majority of people in my age bracket realized that college is a joke for the most part here in the states and didn't bother adding 50-200k worth of debt to their name for a silly paper.

Please. I wouldn't have half the opportunities I have if I wasn't in college right now.

Meh, I think *most* is still incorrect. Even with some liberal arts degree, you still have the requisite "4 year college degree" that so many, countless really, employers put in all their listings and hiring criteria.

In any case, it sure helped me. 28 year old here, never had interest in corvettes before, I'm typically a fan of German cars, and the C7 just speaks to me. Totally out of character for me, but I plopped down my placeholder fee / refundable deposit at my dealership and plan to be in mine before the year is out. I'm even considering the museum delivery option despite my general lack of interest in previous corvettes.

I'm hoping that the $71,000 figure gets you a 2LT and the Z51 performance package. I don't want to spend much more than that

Education & certification is essential for my job (healthcare administration, revenue cycle management). Finally starting grad school for big data analysis (healthcare administration informatics). There are plenty of folks who never went to college and have made major $. Personally, I love school so will eventually get my doctorate.

My max for C7? 2LT, Z51, NPP, mag shocks - hoping for $65K. If it's lower then I'm one happy puppy. Since I thought was I going to be dead 12 months ago then I can live with 10-15% higher but not much more. Higher than that and you're talking M3 probably or possibly a lightly used Porsche.

Can I pay for a new $65K car in cash? Yes. Would I ever do so? Hell no, not with dirt cheap financing from NavyFed or PenFed available right now. $0.02
