Two Corvettes Make Edmunds 2007 Most Wanted List

by Keith Cornett on May 4, 2007

Readers of Edmunds.com were surveyed on their choices for Most Wanted Vehicles for 2007 and Corvette made the list, twice. Coupes under $60,000: The Chevrolet Corvette:
Like a Saddam Hussein election, the Chevrolet Corvette won its category last year with 100 percent of the vote — there were no other entrants. A reorganizing of categories assured a more spirited contest for 2007, but the Chevrolet Corvette still ran away from the pack with a dominating 46 percent. Clearly, its combination of visceral high-speed thrills, all-American heritage and value pricing did not go unnoticed by consumers. The Porsche Cayman was a distant 2nd with 21 percent, while the all-new, redesigned BMW 3 Series coupe pulled in 18 percent. The sprightly Lotus Elise and luxurious Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class both elicited 5 percent. The BMW Z4 and M coupes came in with 4 percent. Convertibles under $60,000: The Chevrolet Corvette:
Value may not be the first thing that springs to mind when you consider the 400-hp Chevrolet Corvette, but that’s exactly what this classic roadster promises to bring to your garage. Chevy’s singular drop top offers iconic good looks and world-class performance, all for a surprisingly affordable price. It’s little wonder, then, that the Corvette was miles ahead of the competition in this race, with a staggering 50 percent of the vote. Porsche’s graceful Boxster was a mere silhouette on the horizon with a distant 2nd-place finish with 20 percent, and it was followed closely by the redesigned BMW 3 Series, now a hardtop convertible at 17 percent. The Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class (9 percent) and Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class (5 percent) brought up the rear. Visit Edmunds.com to see the all the category winners.
