Chevrolet Corvette Z06
Chevrolet Corvette Z06
A relative bargain by comparison at $64,890, and a demon on the track, the Corvette outscored the Porsche but still finished with a value score about 25% below average. Blame it on mediocre reliability and a cost per mile of $1.18, far higher than the 80¢-per-mile Nissan 370Z that also competes in this space. Perhaps the arrival of the next-generation Corvette coming in model year 2014 will improve the standing of Chevy's halo car.
