I believe they did what's funny though they sucked at the front and rear view but a good job of guessing what the new 3rd window would look like. I
hated knowing the car was getting a new window. I mean Ferrari makes theirs look good no matter what model it maybe on. I just think this car should've been left alone. Just my opinion.

well they at least appear to have gotten the 3rd backup lights as reflected in that Omega tooling video.

Real close to what we've seen forever now. To Jalopnik, to the recent C&D pics, to those red reared cad drawings that have been floating around.

But in real life, I predict, it won't have so much incongruity. It will come together. Look at how beautiful the C5 was and the C6 widebodies are, they are intensely pretty. They won't do as bad as the drawings show, it will come together ok, even though all the features of the drawings will be there.

It will polarize people, it does not appear to have much chance of being a brilliant design, but it will work well enough.

And the larger issue is the lack of a proper modern gearbox.

But if you wish, consider this thought, this opnion, opinions, which are not intended to be stated as facts.

A design doesn't have to be brilliant to work well enough. Think F430, it was pretty enough, its design did its job, but it is most certainly not iconic or eternal or brilliant. It was fine, thats it. The 308/328/288 GTO/512BB? That era of design was brilliant. 360? 355? f430? not at all brilliant, never going to be iconic. But it was pretty enough, and did its job.

Similarly, I would say that the C2 and C3 Corvettes were brilliant and iconic. Eternal. In car heaven those designs will have a place. The C1 is only considered cool because its a Corvette and the Corvettes that came later are so epic, the C4 is very very cool to look at because its a Corvette, the C5 is truly pretty, the widebody C6s are or, rather, were, the prettiest cars of their day (I mean that) so long as they were black (the giant strips of rubber and huge panel gaps kind of muck up the other colors, imo).

The C6 will be remembered for what it was much more than how it looked. It looks like a great classic 'Vette. But it was when the 'Vette became a true supercar, and that will have it remembered.

Why are so many muscle cars of the late 60s considered so beautiful? Because of what they were, they were so fast, the end of an era, a snapshot of time. Taken alone, without that history to back it, is a 69 camaro prettier than a 78? I'm not so sure.

The C7 doesn't need to be a perfect design to succeed. It'd sure be nice if it was a truly great and iconic design, I don't see why GM's powers that be ordered everybody to take a bunch of acid before designing the rear end, but... if the car is good enough, eventually, people will love its design. That is kind of the order in which car beauty is achieved... Engineers create classic designs every bit as much as designers do.

Just a thought.

also, remember, one can always just order black. it covers up large amounts of rubber strips, giant panel gaps, and all of the other flaws Amerca's supercars have tended to have. Viper, Ford GT, and Corvette, have never been as clean in design and construction as their European counterparts.

Black fixes all! Or on the Ford GT, red or blue also, or on the Viper giant racing stripes! And all 3 of those cars can easily look as good as anything.

LMAO I was actually thinking of Gumby coming out the side of the car or the block heads. I used to watch that show as a kid.
