We'll cover Corvette Financing for a new Corvette first. A new Corvette is obviously a great way to get a car and limit the amount of potential repairs because of the warranty. Even out of warranty you wont have that many problems with these cars.

The C5, C6 and C7 Corvettes have proved to be pretty reliable. You could always purchase an extended warranty for piece of mind. GM typically can be a good source of financing because they want to move cars.

Please be careful of a bank that a dealer recommends with caution. They kick back a certain percent of your Bank Auto Financing back to the dealer which comes out of your pocket. Our recommendation is to bring your own Corvette financing to the table and work your best deal first. Check available credit unions they usually have the best rates.


A lease is another option for getting the Vette of your dreams! You can work the lease very similar to the finance but get a little lower payment. Its all about the purchase price and the residual value of the car when your lease term is up. Negotiate the purchase price before talking lease.
The banks determine the residual value. This really is where you can make or break a lease deal for you. Its the banks best guess at what they think they can get for the car at a dealer auction. The future is always changing so it depends on the market. You could always purchase the car at the end of the lease also. The advantage to that would be a cheaper monthly payment for a couple of years. Then since the purchase price of the car will be less after the lease you can finance the car for less and pay less interest on it and know who drove the car before you. Sometimes banks will take a lower price then the residual to save on the hassle of dealing with the car so there is another angle for you.
If you are ready to build a new Vette don't forget to check the Museum Delivery Option (R8C). Check this option if you want to pick it up in Bowling Green Kentucky when special ordering from your dealer.
