I like it. The Viper comparo is a bit silly though. All modern headlights "look like viper's", if you ask me. I really think they should bring back the pop up lights though. You could come up with something really cool with little halogens popping up.

It'll be a hit. Much better than the last 9 years. I'd still buy a Mustang though. For the same price point, you can have the Shelby GT500 (662 HP, 631 lb-ft). It looks like a Mustang, sounds like a Mustang, and it's trying to be some pipe dream of an international super car.

I just don't like the rear of it at all.

It's as if it was inspired by the recent Camaros and Cadillacs... neither of which is a place that the new Corvette should be drawing inspiration from.

I've certainly seen middle-aged guys driving them, but I'd say the average Corvette owner I've seen doesn't fit in the obese category.

Miss. It is like Windows, they get every second iteration right.

I think a few versions of the C6 are actually pretty nice, on the outside anyway.

That red line on the center console pretty much suggest who gets to play with the radio and who doesn’t.

3200 lb.s and 450 hp sounds like fun.
Older white guys with mo ney to burn have something new to blow it on. I know a guy in the i-net gun sales that bought a manual seven speed ,because it's the one to have. Unfortunately he's unable to drive it because of his size and knee problems.

I'm not feelin it. What's really different other than how they molded the fiberglass?

Looks like it will rattle a bunch and I tend to prefer pushrods in vintage cars and prety much any motorcycle.

Yeah, I can see the similarity, but the Vette has always gone its own way. At best, this latest abortion is a cheap impersonation of the Ferrari (and cheap in every sense of the word, not just economically). I have a 2004 Z-06 (last year of the C-whatever) and I love it and I love the look of it. This one just looks, well, cheap. Phoney. I think they missed the mark on this one. They've got the same problem as the Feds; they've been under Obama for too long. This would never have happened from the guys who brought us the Z-06 and the ZR-1.

They have this covered. They are offering it with two interior options. One set up for real driving, the other for fat middle aged guys who need more comfort.
And yes, I'm serious.

The styling is over done and seems to be a composite of many different cars: Camero from the rear quarter and rear; Nissan GT-R from the side; the hood almost looks like a Lotus. Would I park one in my drive way? Hell yes.
