Notice that the body color is not on the outer sides of the targa roof as seen at NAIAS.

I love the red one the best... simply because it has no spoiler. That spoiler makes the rear look more clunkier than it already is. I want one

I don't think it needs the spoiler either.

I really like the C7 headlights and front end! From the door back - ahhhhh. Will have to see in person. It wouldn't inhibit me from buying a C7Z when released though.

The more I look at those images, I'd have to say -- in a parallel galaxy where there was no C6 or Corvette for that matter and both my JSB Grand Sport (and other wide body C6s) and that JSB C7 were launched at the same time as "twins"... the Grand Sport / Z06 / ZR1 would certainly hold their own.

The overall design of the C7 strongly resembles the C6 - which is a good thing for the Corvette heritage / tradition. The resemblance of the C7 / C6 helps current C6 owners to hold out 2 or 3 years before buying a C7.

so the red is a non Z51 but I though since the coolers weren't there the vent's wouldn't be either. Are all the production cars going to have the vents?

You can tell in some of the older pictures that they're the transparent roofs, this pictures shows it if you look closely

Beautiful profile

I think everything from the side window on forward just looks simply beautiful. You can see so much Corvette heritage in the face also. When they went to lunch the design team and Ed Welburn probably smoked something really good before they drawed out the rear.

Stingray concept built.
Stingray concept shown to public.
Stingray concept featured in movie.
Stingray concept gets generally positive response.
Positive response gives GM perception of willingness of public to accept a more adventurous design direction.
C7 Stingray takes cues from Stingray concept, though toned down.
Some people don't like C7, but a lot do.

There are 3 roof options for the C7 coupe, one being fully painted carbon fiber roof. Then there is exposed weave center roof with sides painted body color, and third is transparent roof.
