Speaking as an owner of two Corvettes and an '05 SSR -- I think the ride in the SSR is great, but you need to go for a few more rides in late model Vettes if you really feel this way.ABLURRR-05 said:i can't believe people would want a vette more than an ssr. the ride is very smooth not bumpy like you would have in a vette. i think people are just scared to love a car.
I didn't buy the SSR for comfort -- and it's a lot more crowded than the Corvettes. Particularly in the console, and between my left elbow and the door panel.
I sort of bought it for performance, but either of my Vettes could easily spank it in a straight line. Hard to overcome that 1000+ pound weight disadvantage. Cornering is pretty good but the Vettes still easily dominate. Don't even mention braking.
The SSR does have storage space in the back, but it's not accessible while on the road, so either Corvette is a better road car for me -- and I do at least one 5K+ trip a year (next year it looks like I might do two long jaunts) so that's important to me.
I really bought it because it is so incredibly cool. It's way cooler than my Z06 or my wife's 50th Anniversary convertible Vette. I love driving it around town and I love the looks it gets everywhere I go. I still look at it all the time myself. What a knockout!
My SSR isn't a Vette. It isn't supposed to be a Vette. And I like it that way.
