The Scissor Doors on this C7 Corvette Z06 Actually Serve a Purpose

Wait, wait, wait. Hold on just a second. Before you throw your hands up in disgust yelping about how stupid scissor (aka Lambo) doors are and how they’re a huge waste of money, at least hear out why they’re useful for the man who made the decision to install them.

Corvette Forum member and proud owner of this Shark Grey 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Type2Designs is a tall person who has a slightly more difficulty time getting into and getting out of a car this low. “I’m 6′3″ and now I can finally get in and out of the car without scratching the damn interior,” he said. “Ninety percent of the reason for the upgrade was utility.” That makes sense, no? Sure, the doors might be a little bit obnoxious, but he’s also less likely to accidentally ding his doors on anything while trying to get out.

The web and app developer from Tampa, Fla. says he paid about $1,500 for the doors. If it helps preserve the quality of the vehicle, that seems worth it. Get off your judgmental high horse.
