The 2011 Chevrolet Corvette (GM).
Each week, the AOL Autos Editors are highlighting a vehicle that we think is an exceptionally good deal based on its credentials and its current selling price compared with its MSRP and historical selling price. Make sure to check back every week for THE hot deal!

The Chevrolet Corvette is already probably the best high-performance value in America. And as dealers look to make room for the 2012 model, 2011s are enjoying steep discounts. Given that the 2012 is essentially the same exact car, you, the savvy consumer, can get a great deal on an iconic set of wheels. How good of a deal, you ask? Try a whopping $7,153 under MSRP, for a total price of $46,892 (excluding destination fee).

The Corvette Convertible's famous 6.2L V-8 engine produces 430-hp and and 424 lb-ft of torque and even manages to get halfway decent fuel economy (16 mpg City, 26 mpg Highway). It also boasts fantastic driving dynamics and, of course, beautiful and instantly recognizable sheet-metal (which is a figure of speech -- the Vette's exterior is actually made of sheet molded compound). But it's that near-instant 0-60 MPH acceleration that makes us drool. The thought of roaring down a lonely road with the top down could make even the most car-adverse of people seriously consider a purchase.

The Chevrolet Corvette is an American icon, for good reason, and can be yours right now for a pretty sweet price. What more is there to say? Supercar performance for under $50,000 is something we all can find agreeable, so get to your local Chevrolet dealership and bargain hard or take along an AOL Autos Best Price Guarantee Certificate. You can walk away with a great deal.


Guaranteed Best Price: The 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is currently selling at 13.2% below MSRP or $46,892 on average. To get your Guaranteed Best Price certificate from one of our thousands of participating dealers across the country, click on the button below.

      When the price of gas goes to 10 dollars a gallon, many corvettes will be sitting in their garage or sold for one tenths the price. Gas guzzlers like dinosaurs are on their way out! Sorry to bust your bubble guys but the buckets of oil around the world are more than half empty and what's left is more difficult to extract! Personally I'm buying an electric Tesla model S!

        Not our Vette! We R&R the Motor and it has a V4 Cycl Gas Engine..with a Turbo. ave 31 mpg. Take it for a nice Drive Down the Shoreline in N. Suburbs of Chicago,78 Degrees & Sunny, down Lake Shore Drive,Have Pizza at Pizza Uno's and then go see a Cubs Baseball Game and then a nice Drive back up the Lake shore to the North Suburbs of Lake Forest..and have Dinner at The Silo.. What a Great Day! Next? We want to Convert another Vette to a Hybrid- Like the Ford Fusion.. 4 Cycl and Electric. The Fusion Hybrid ave 45 mpg on the Elec and goes upto 45 mph..then the Gas engine takes over and does over 115 top speed! That's plent y fast enough around the City of Chicago..

      At any price ... wait until you call your insurance agent to add the new Vette to your policy. There is no showroom bargain that can outweigh the rate you will have to pay your insurance company. LMAO!

      Unfortunately I have owned several corvettes only to be increasingly disappointed with severe service issues. I have had them all, overheating, electrical and various mechanical part problems that sapped the joy away from ownership. Quality control seems to be the key issue with the Chevy brand, where the bottom line is more important than customer loyalty.

        i have had 3 over a 20 years time span .. and never had any trouble with any of them... sorry to hear you have so much trouble... but as for myself they are great cars ... and you can't beat the price on them for what you get... just be ready to pay a few speeding tickets the law keeps a close eye on them ...

      I've always wanted a Vette, but I'm going to hold on to my 4-door version (G8) for as long as I can.
