For every 70 year old buying a Corvette, there is a 30 year old buyer - just like BMW. The median age demographic is the same.
I bought my first BMW, a 320i when I was 26 and my first Corvette when I was 33. I bought the Corvette after I owned a 1983 BMW 533i which was supposedly their hot car at the time. It put me to sleep when driving because it was so boring, even with a stick. I decided I wanted a fun car to remind myself that I was still alive, and the Corvette fit the bill nicely.
