2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Convertible
Couples Therapy: The ‘Vette Team Strives To Promote Marital Harmony. These days, Chevrolet engineering is working overtime to eliminate barriers to Corvette ownership. They’ve replaced its low, flexy, uncomfortable chairs with proper magnesium-framed buckets offering a choice of sport or competition levels of support. The Fisher-Price dash plastics have given way to rich, soft-touch, stitched materials wrapping practically every surface. And now, with the introduction of the Z06, a single Corvette can meet the needs of less-than-identically matched couples. Chief engineer Tadge Juechter explains: “I know many, many customers who, between a couple, couldn’t agree on a Z06 because one of the two didn’t want a manual transmission or one wanted a convertible for the parade or Friday-night rides or whatever. They just could not agree.”
So for 2015, in addition to dialing the Z06’s output up to ZR-1 levels (preliminarily rated “at least 625 hp and 635 lb-ft”), the Z06 will be offered with your choice of seven-speed manual or a spanking-new GM-built 8L90 eight-speed torque-converter automatic, in a removable-roof hatchback coupe or one-button convertible soft-top configuration. And just like that, formerly bickering couples can saddle up a Z06 in peace.
