Sorry to disagree JM, but it's still hideous...

Back on topic, I for one do feel the C7 is going to be a stunning and bold (and needed) change for Corvette.

It looks like a Predator monster from Aliens in the front and the back is kinda weird looking too but I actually like it more than what I've seen thus far from the new one.

Is it a lot of work to have them try some different colors? Red?

Did anyone notice that the logo is pretty much the same from the sideswipe concept? Look at the hood.

That was evident from the leaked Omega CAD video back when it came out.

It's good to know that they ran some market tests on the interior at least.

I mean no offense, but for me to spend $55-60k on a car, I will NOT "learn to like" anything as major as (in my case) the rear design, or (in your case) the interior where you spend the most time. JMHO

From spy shots the new top looks really sleek compared to past convertibles that seemed to have too much of a "hump" when you look at the lines. I would not be surprised if C7 drop tops end up passing coupes in sales.

I think if they use this rear drop top would be the only way for me to go if I ever order one. It's as close as to what a Corvette would look like from every, single angle. I've been a coupe man since birth and never believed in a convertible sports car of ANY brand or model. I will have to say this model will be an exception.

That dashboard pisses me off more than the rear end. Now I'm looking forward to seeing the 2015 Mustang even more.

Line Drawings they are not...

All,

These are not "drawings" in the classic sense. They're photographs of the real deal that have been processed via photoshop or similar software.

What you see is what you get. Clown/Gangsta teardrops and all...

This is definitely a photoshopped rendering. Among other things, the door pull is not accurate.
