The segment was good it basically told it the way it is, my question is whether it's automatic or standard what happens if the car runs out of gas what you going to do then? Huh smarty pants LOL

I went with an automatic primarily because I speed with a manual. Give me complete control of the shifting I go into track mode. Now my automatic gives me the paddles to control RPM and that works when I have the itch. Since I don’t track race, it works for me. And when I want to cruise, it’s full auto.

How’s the transmission held up as of today?

Got tired of rowing gears in traffic and I wanted the fastest car possible. No brainer.

Numbers never lie... *But* sometimes they don't tell the whole story. I only owned one Corvette in my life so far. when i was 27 i bought a 97' Z51 Arctic White 6-Speed im 33 now and looking for another one. im sorry bro but i'll never own a auto Vette. i learned to drive with a manual, maybe its just habit to drive standard. idk but im not going to unsuscribe cause *YOUR VIDEOS ARE AMAZING!* If it was someone i would unsub cause of auto trans.

The manual transmission cars have a $1,000+ better resale value than the automatic cars despite the automatic being about $2,000 more expensive to begin with.

For resale value the manual transmission is the obvious choice.

My wife's boyfriend advised me to get an automatic

nope, no "reservations about owning a Corvette without a manual transmission", none. have no interest in a slushbox that changes gears when i only want more throttle. none... see you in 100k miles when you need a $4000 tranny and my clutch is still fine.

I totally agree about the why some should consider an automatic. As much as the Corvette is indeed not only an American, but a world class iconic sports car, its also built like a tank, allowing it to be a very practical everyday driver. I’ve own four over the last 21 years and they were all daily drivers, even on the mean (pothole) streets of Philly. Living close to the bridge to New Jersey allows me to have more fun with hit on open highways with the tops off listening to my favorite playlist. Its a fun beast to drive, even with an automatic. Now eyeing my fifth, no doubt it will also be an automatic.

c6 zr1 is a faster car over c7 zo6 do some research lol

If you are in manual mode and floor it , forget to shift , will it shift automatically or what happens ?
adrianlittlechurch
My question is: Is automatic mode faster than paddle shifting?

Old ppl (Sunday grandpa drivers) and posers get autos for a sports car. I mean posers as in those who are afraid or cannot drive fast due to lack of skills or poor eyesight or poor reaction time or poor driving decision skills and only buy the car to show off that they have the car. I see a lot of young kids who are afraid of driving fast in their Italian/German/Corvette sports cars. They literally drive like grandpa. This is a shame as it wastes the potential of the car. But then again, if these kids were to drive fast, they'd crash and burn within 1/2 block. Stick to a Tesla self driving car I say.
