If the rendering is accurate, I bet opinions about the new Corvette are going to be quite polarized.

Im sure people went WTF back in late 62 about the new 63 or the new 68.In my day the C4 was a radical new thing.No difference here.I kinda see an Aston Martin in it

If this is going to be the 2014 Corvette, I definetly don't like it. I think it is very ugly... :blink:

I think they are running out of American target buyers and will be trying to go over seas, they have a lot to compete with. Same with the viper.

Looks like it's got too much Camaro in the rear of it. Not a big fan of the way they line the LED's like that either, kinda prefer the light tube set up Chrysler used on the 200's like mine.

Not sure of the front, but I like the profile. The taillights are nice, too.

Wonder how it'll work as a convertible?

Looks like something designed for the Cadillac line but got grabbed by Chevy so Vette sales wouldn't suffer.

l have to agree with some statements said, back looks like the camaro and the rest looks japanese ... They are moving to far away from the present style.

Oh yeah, WILL NOT be buying one of these any time soon. It looks like the same design team that brought you the BMW, GMC, LEXUS, NISSAN, TOYOTA, MERCEDES. They all have one designer left and his name is SQUARE B. UGLY.

I like it! Could do without the Camaro rear end (give me the "trademark" Corvette round taillights that make a Corvette a Corvette), and a couple of silly parts like the dopey LEDs around the headlights and the weird vertical side marker lights, but all in all a cool design.

The Corvette always was a strong seller in Europe, but for being a Corvette, i.e. for being genuinely American. Not for being some europeanised marketing excercise. There are enough European sports cars to chose from. If they make the Corvette too Euro, it will fail in this market. Big mistake.

Looks to me that they took too many styling cues from the recent Camaro. So many sharp edges. Corvettes should be curvy and smooth in my oh-so-humble opinion.

It looks too 'Nissan' for my taste.

Square tail lights? Too many sharp edges, I don't care for it at all.
