As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW Z4 and the Chevrolet Corvette in the front seats.
With the Chevrolet Corvette you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW Z4, due to its tank size and fuel economy.
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW Z4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Chevrolet Corvette. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the BMW Z4 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Corvette.
Since the BMW Z4 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Corvette, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW Z4, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Corvette.
The BMW Z4 has much less torque than the Chevrolet Corvette, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.
The BMW Z4 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Corvette, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW Z4 is significantly less powerful than the Chevrolet Corvette. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW Z4 and the Chevrolet Corvette. The BMW Z4 has significantly less cargo room than the Chevrolet Corvette, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW Z4 than that of the Chevrolet Corvette.
