Gross. Chevrolet is relying too much on this "transformers" design language that will not be good for the longevity of their brands like Camaro or Corvette.

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

Well. unless they slowed down the vette, it should be about 3.6 secs to 60 and 1/4 mile in mid 11's. Drag race these two cars and it will depend more on the drivers than anything else.

So for an additonal $40,000 you can have an AMG that is no faster in straight line, and slower in the corners.

The Corvette is a performance car super value. If you don't like it, that's cool, but bashing it's performance compared to a more expensive car that is slower is just stupid.

Well they have been bragging about the new LT 427. I think they might be sand bagging the HP numbers, but they have been say 405hp. Both the camaro and the mustang have surpassed well over 600 hp. I honestly think it's only a matter of time till they make the corvette a hybrid. Because that's what they do.

Seriously, I don't think anyone is cross-shopping a Corvette and an E63 AMG. Two different cars for two different types of car buyer.

What I've seen so far of the new Corvette styling is interesting, although it looks like Chevy tried too hard to copy and paste various styling cues from other high-performances cars rather than come up with their own unique design.

Like that's anything new.
