Default C7 (2014+) Corvette Thread

recently stumbled across this. could this be final design? it's not bad, but I definitely prefer the vettes signature quad circle lights.

Yeah I really hope that isn't the interior that makes it into production.

If that's the next-gen Corvette, the styling of the stern sheets repeats the awkward/ugly design language of the Camaro - hardly a step forward. Are those paddle-shifters I see? Evidently a sop to the generation that grew up unable to drive a stick.

change is not always bad.
You have to be forward thinking.
Besides, you get used to the look, and it starts to look good, if you don't like it initially.

Overall, it looks pretty good. quad taillights are still there, but looks more radical.

and they took a page from the Supra, with the driver oriented cockpit.

I'm sure this Vette will be an improvement overall, but it doesn't really excitement. Wake me when the Blue Oval produces the GT successor

The other Mag cover leak......



its disappointing with the taillights, but might grow on me. I wont be in any rush to trade my C6 vert (esp. after all the money I put into it--and I love the thing)'. But, I'll reserve final judgement till i see it in person and test drive it....

Enough with all of the teasing! Can't wait to see some full shots of this thing. The front end is gorgeous and the rear looks pretty aggressive on Automobile's cover!

This new Corvette looks incredibly exotic. From the leaks, every bit as exotic as a Lambo or Ferrari. I'm really looking forward to it
