half the allure of a corvette is its performance per dollar...lets wait until its built and tested on the track against its competition. the last gen vette already beat out the newest viper... curious to see what srt does in the next couple of years to up the stakes knowing a new vette is due. Same for how it performs against some of the pricier competition from Italy and Germany.

It looks alright but i am not a fan of these computer generated images, need to see real photos for my opinion on its looks

Posted via FF Mobile Seriously, this Corvette really looks like Chevy just mashed design elements from another car. It looks like a Corvette Stingray Concept.........................oh wait.

The exterior looks good-to-great (I like the butt and don't care the round tails are gone - but I'm not a 'Vette enthusiast). By far the meanest looking car under $100 Grand.

The interior, however, continues the tradition of tacky 'Vette interior design. I only hope it's really made of "all premium materials" this time as they claim, in order to mitigate the design somewhat.

Agreed on the CGI comments from post #41. The CGI shots look great, but the red one from the NAIS floor looks cheesy.

Looks like a Viper front and Camaro rear. Still rather have a Viper.

And they still haven't figured out how to design an interior.

I agree. It's certainly not bad looking but I think in 5 years it'll look really stale and cheesy unlike a 5, 10 or 40 year old classic Ferrari or something with a timelessly good looking design. Corvette customers probably are not the epitome of good taste though and would have rejected anything else. The Camaro looking tail lights really are the worst though. They already looked hideous on the Camaro and now they're stuck to the back of the Corvette too.
