The Good The 2011 Chevrolet Corvette can be optioned with a carbon fiber roof and ceramic brakes for track performance. Magnetic suspension technology helps keep the tires grounded, and a head up display keeps useful information front and center.
The Bad The navigation system performs slowly and uses low-resolution maps, and a Bluetooth phone system offers few frills. Fuel economy is poor, and the car is difficult to handle on bumpy roads.
The Bottom Line Cabin tech is an afterthought in the 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, as this car was made for the track, not daily driving or grocery runs.
2011 Chevrolet Corvette Z06
Not so much car as rocket-powered scream machine, the 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 improves on the previous model by being even more focused on its purpose: that of being a track car. Don't expect German refinement or Japanese technical wizardry, as the Corvette Z06 is all about low-down power.
And don't think that just because you're paying almost $100 grand for a car you will get the latest cabin tech. The navigation system in the Corvette Z06 seems more of a practical joke than a gadget, and the Bluetooth phone system echoes GM's former mulishness about embracing that technology.
