KBB (Unofficially) Names Z06 Corvette Best Resale Value

by Keith Cornett on December 1, 2006

2007 Z06 CorvetteKelley Blue Book released their list of vehicles with the best resale value for 2007. The 2006 Corvette made last year’s list but unfortunately gave its spot away this year to the likes of the Mini Cooper (both hatchback and convertible) and the Pontiac Solstice. And while I don’t usually like to tell people how to do their jobs, it would make sense for this list to have a sports car category. However, reading through the KBB survey I was elated when I came across this statement:

Kelley Blue Book’s Best Resale Value Awards exclude expensive, high-performance, low-volume vehicles, because of the program’s emphasis on serving the typical consumer. The No. 1 vehicle would have been the 2007 Corvette ZO6, holding the greatest percentage of its original value after a five-year ownership period.
The Z06′s limited production (about 6,000/year) and somewhat higher price probably got her left off this list. Had that not been a consideration, our favorite super car would not have only made the list, it would have been number 1. Source: Kelly Blue Book
