2011 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Carbon - Click above for high-res image gallery

The C6 Chevrolet Corvette has been around since the 2005 model year, but General Motors has made a point to keep its everyman sports coupe fresh with regular updates. For 2011, the big change is an upgraded Z06, with new Z07 and Carbon Fiber packages. One thing that isn't budging much for 2011 is price, as most versions of the Bowtie sports car have reportedly gone up in price but $20 compared to the 2010 model year.

The base Vette starts out at a reasonable $48,950, and if you lose the fixed roof, the price jumps to $53,600. Move up to the Grand Sport and you'll be staring at a $54,790 Monroney, while the GS ragtop is exactly $5,000 more than the base convertible. Move out of the GS and into the Z06 and the price rockets to $74,305. The Carbon Fiber package is $3,995 stand-alone package, while the Z06 Ultimate Performance Package (A.K.A. the Z07 package) is a healthy $9,495. The Corvette Blogger says the limited Carbon edition Z06 should come in at around $95,000.

The ZR1 gets by far the largest price increase of the bunch, as the starting price jumps $2,920 to $109,820. That's a $6,320 price bump from the 2009 model. Add the ZR1 premium equipment group and you're looking at $119,820, which is still a pretty handsome deal for the performance it offers. Head over to Corvette Blogger for more Vette pricing info. There are 19 different package options, 38 stand-alone options and nine tire choices.

      Something about the puffy/fluffy seat design that always feels cheap to me. I think if they tightened the lines on that a little the interior would be looking much better. They have really cool looking seats on the CTS-V, they should talk to their designers.

      Quite a substantial price hike.

      I have a Z06 with less than 5,000 miles on it. It has dynoed at 471 rear wheel HP, with no modifications, using 100 octane gas. Its power scares me. After a lot of new Vettes including two new C4 ZR-1s the Z06 scares me. Maybe that's a good thing.

      There is an error in the description above (first sentence of paragraph two) that implies the base coupe has a fixed roof. It doesn't. The roof panel comes off, targa style. I think they are saying that the convertible price jumps to $53,600 over the base coupe.

      The ZR1 is cool and all, but for $100k, I'm buying a Tesla Roadster.

      I have been buying Corvettes since 1979 and the '11 is HORRENDOUS - black rims?
      That's the end of my Corvette days.

        Stop being so MEAN. It's MY opinion that I dislike the 2011 model as shown! Pick on someone else, bigshot

      What exactly justifies the price jump for the ZR-1? What new stuff (if any) is on the 2011 model vs the 2010 or 2009

      The base Vette and the Grand Sport are a pretty good value, but damn that's a lot of money for the upgraded ones.

        Nice looking Z-28 knock-off....Al-

        I love the Vettes (The GS and Z06 in particular). The ZR1 is a ridiculous performance machine, Ferarri Killer and bargain. BUT, part of me would get a Viper ACR for that kind of money on the new 911Turbo, Audi R8V10 (granted, need to drop in more $$'s).

        The latter two have a better fit and finish and feel premium, unlike the Vette's interior. The ACR is just insanity, for the price you're literally getting one of the fastest cars in the world, a race car in civilian clothing :-). It' just so outrageous I couldnt justify spending the $$'s for an equivalent Ferrari (Scuderia etc).

        All these are hyptoheticals, in this economy my money is staying in the bank!

        For those that rated down my comment, I got replied to by a Spammer. It was for online dating.

        It got deleted. So now my comment, in addition to being annoying, doesn't make any sense.

      I have owned 17 vettes in my lifetime with an '08 Z06 being my current. I have also owned two Porsche Turbos, the last being an '02, and two Porsche 928's. I have to admit the Porsche is a much better built vehicle, in regards to fit and finish, but, just for the bang for the buck, the Corvette is a bargain. The key to the best value in any high performance vehicle is buying one to two year old models with very few miles on the clock.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Yes, that threw me for a moment.

      The article also claims nine tire choices, but that's confused with wheel choices. I believe the stock corvettes use a (much maligned) Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar runflat, and the ZR1 and maybe one of the special packages uses a higher performance tire.
