I think it looks WAAAAY better than in the Jalopnik renderings. Not perfect but I still love it!

[EDIT:] The rear will look better in person and will grow on people - guaranteed. At least its fresh. I think they scored with the spoiler design. And you gotta love all the functional air vents.

[EDIT:] Wait a second! If you can't get excited about a car that looks like THAT (below) you're nuts! That's not even mentioning the 7 speed stick and 450 frickin horsepower!!!

[EDIT:] OK after a week of staring at it I now need this car to sustain my life. Excuse me while I go rob a bank...

It's OK, BUT...

...it has many warts. If I replace my C6 with one, it won't be for a few years and I hope that by then they'll have fixed them.

I was wondering when someone would put together a poll!

Count me in for the "love it" crowd.

Count me into the dislike. I like some, baffled by some, and hate the rear.

I absolutely love everything about the car, with the exception of the rear. I like the rear, not in love with it.

I think the worst angle on the car is when you take a picture straight from the back. It removes all dimensions and makes it look flat.






When you shoot it from the rear 3/4 view it looks great.







Like I've said before, Corvette have always had one or two bad angles in pictures, but when you see it in person I am usually blown away.

I agree that the rear is a mistake.
Otherwise, it looks pretty good.

I was hoping it would grow on me, but it hasn't. Perhaps if I were in my 20's or 30's I would feel like a hot shot in this car, but being in my 50's, I think I would feel as though I was trying too hard to stay young and hip. I don't want the additional stigma of seeming as though I am going through a mid-life crisis. I'll stick to my beautiful 07 black Vert.

Love it. But qualified.

I think it's a great design overall. Clearly a lot of work went into it. Finally. After the C4, 5, and 6, something that can actually be called shapely. Swoopy. Knifelike.

But the rear is baffling and irritating. With so many obvious alternatives, why the Aztek treatment? And my god. The Clown teardrops...

Still embarrassing.

The rear end looks awful in the first picture, yet really good in the other 2. Reminds me of the front end of the C6, which IMO looked just FUGLY in some shots.

Ovarall, I love it. The rear end is not a "10", but it's growing on me. I want to see one live for sure.
