Looks like a stingray too. I hope the ZR1 equivalent will be call the Devil Ray!!

I really like the front and some of the side profile but that's about it for now. This C7 looks like it borrows some styling cues from the Ferrari F12 but not as refined I guess. I don't like the rear at all nor do I understand the B-pillar look through/window. My C6 will be around for a long while I guess. ha ha

Eh... so-so. Central front air intake is the weakest part. It's a mild and generic shape on an otherwise wildly designed body. Makes no sense why they would fall asleep one of the most important details.
Tail is strange. Interior looks much much better.

absolute home run! between this and trying to get the govt out of their shares, gm could be really about to make major moves in the market. remember toyota, while doing spectacularly well overall, is having some big troubles in china due to political tension over control of some islands...

anyway, saw this pic - WOW!

^^^Yup this is the best looking Vette ever imo. On that note C6 Z06 prices will come down nicely and will make great bang for the buck deals.

it is stunning.... interior looks good, except for few bits and pieces that are so GM.

overall 10/10 so far.

American sports cars should be brash and in your face. This succeeds immensely in that area. I like it.

F12 is not as sharp as C7 and that has been the problem since Maranello. They look too soft.
Corvette did a much, much better job on that fastback design.

I never cared about new VIper since it looks exactly like the old one and too retro but new C7 is a modern sports car done right! Except the interior of course that is just pure GM "magic"

^ ^ Interesting because the "sharp" lines of the C6 (compared to the C5) are what took a while to grow on me.
For the interior I'm sure Caravaggio, Apsis, and DSV will continue to address the Vette's interior shortcomings for those that want to drop the additional coin.

Thumbs up

Wow, this thing is bad-***!!!

I was worried those taillights were getting too close to the camaros, but this actually works well.

Good job on the interior too

Damn, can't wait for this
