I'll agree on this point, but this is a clothing forum, and, unfortunately, not everyone is an automobile enthusiast. There are people who simply use the vehicles for point A to point B. That said, I also believe that there are people who are proud of their sartorial choices that a good portion of the people in this community would not be caught dead wearing. People enjoy different aspects of life. Some are willing to accept mediocrity (C6 Z06) over excellence (Porsche Carerra GT) in order to afford a few more pairs of shoes or suits.
My anecdote on the OP's car: I have raced against some C6 Z06's on road courses, and they are absolute monsters. Cheesy or not, you have to respect the absolutely amazing performance, especially considering its price point. Non-Z06 C6's and any C5 or earlier Vette (Z06 or otherwise) are really nothing more than a throwback to an era, but the C6 Z06 is really a special machine. I would never choose one, or even remotely consider it, but I can understand the desire for someone else to make the purchase. Personally, if I wanted a 2 seater sports car for Z06 money, I'd look at the Exige S or Cayman S.
