I think it's sick. Round lights would've been sex but I'll take it.

they pretty much did the viper thing with the headlights imo... pretty sharp looking front end tho.

rear end...

To me it looks like the camaro. They should have at least made the camaro lights second so we think of corvette instead of camaro. The lights are already an issue for a lot of people. I was browsing the corvette forum and it's the number one complaint. But you know corvette has always seemed to mess with one little design aspect on every gen just enough to turn you off on the whole car. The c4 zr1 had square tail lights which were polarizing, eventually joining all models. The c5 had oval tail lights just when people had gotten used to the squares. The c6 dropped the pop ups, and now we have these camaro lights. I have to see it in person, it's often better than the pictures, but the rest of the car is hot enough where it makes up for it...sort of.

It looks great. I honestly don't care about the tail lights.

I want to see it in white. Top of the door and entire roof would look better in black imo.

Overall - pretty nice. Following the Vipers path to a more exotic look. Kind of looks like the bastard child of a 599 and Camaro

Back end looks like it was ass raped by a Camaro.

IMO, they completely ruined it. CORVETTES HAVE ROUND FUCKING TAIL LIGHTS YOU FUCK ASSES.

Yeah. I think its a piece of garbage because of the rear. It looks pretty much like an ugly ass camaro.

Yup. Maybe a little bit of Aston Martin Zagato in there, too.

I don't think the rear looks that bad.

It looks pretty good minus the four trumpets in the back. Also, I think it looks like Lightning McQueen from the side. I aint even mad. :notbad:

They pretty much ripped the entire front from the viper, then made it look bad.
still think its an improvement though..

I do agree though that they should of kept the round lights for the back

Round lights make it a corvette. Otherwise it's pure tits.

I def think the viper takes it this round, as far as styling goes anyway. it has more subtle features but also looks meaner. the vette is cool but idk what happened with the rear end it looks wayy too 'concept-ish' kinda like how i've always thought about the new camaros. those squarer lights are just hideous imo.

i think to make the C7 really gorgeous they would need to dumb down the rear to more basic vette. 599 was mentioned and if you look at that it's so simple but oh so good. round lights > *

near perfect example of subtle-meets-aggressive. the vette is just too over the top for me

I can't wait to see the z06. I'm especially curious to see the convertible, it doesn't seem to have a design for a natural transition to topless like the prior vettes did.

I like it, even the ass end looks o.k. to me. .

I dont mind them ditching the round lights either. Its not a big deal

even the interior looks decent, but im sure it will feel cheap and plasticy

Anyone on here ever drive a C6? People talk shit about the interior but it looks alright in photos.

For that matter, anyone ever drive a C5 and a C6 (Harry, I'm looking in your direction)? How do they compare?

I drove both a C5 and a C6

the C5 had horrible interior. just really bland and basic, the leather around the steering wheel was peeling after only 27k miles on the car, and seats had a split seam

On the C6, panels would shake and squeek, but looked 'slightly better. still felt plastic and cheap. . just like Caddys

natrual transition of topless??? i dont think they did a very good job with them before at all! even though i had a convertible when i had mine, i still didnt think they looked as could as the coupes did.... :shrug:

Strictly from a design standpoint I thought the C5s looked good as convertibles, I think they were actually designed as convertibles first, the C6's looked less so, but I'm just saying good or bad, this C7 doesn't look like it could even pull it off at all, it just doesn't seem to have the lines for it, but its all personal opinion I guess.

I never felt the C5 had such a bad interior as everyone said, it had a nice design, kinda wraparound and the console was nicely placed. It was plastic and it had a lot of standard issue GM gauges for heat etc, but it was alright. It might have been cheap plastic, idk, but i never got that feeling in an obvious way, I also didn't have creaks and rattles, I think it was pretty good for an american car. Mine was all black, but my cousin had an 03 which had a tan interior. It was different shades of browns with tan leather seats. Way nicer interior. It felt much more upscale. If you're looking for a C5 and have cheap interior concerns, look for one with the tan interior. Black sounds more badass but in reality, its shitty. It's always dusty, you can see every hair and every pebble on the carpets, but even worse, you can't see the interior at all, in most driving conditions it all blends together, you don't see any curves or features and can't tell where the dashboard ends and the carpet begins.


The seats were leather but kinda crappy. They had a lot of permanent creases which was weird because they weren't soft and cushy. They also rocked back and forth which was a known problem.

i don't think vettes ever had that nice of an interior... but honestly it's a massed-produced sports car and made to be driven as such. it's not a lamborghini etc...

i feel like if you're going to buy a vette/viper/mustang whatever and you complain it's not comfortable or that the interior is lacking you're just getting the wrong car. if they crammed all sorts of fancy electronics and high-end luxury components in the car would handle and be much different. sure, a lot of cars have lacking interiors but it's a fucking car, not a goddam mobile home. that's what range rovers and benz are for if you want something a little more plush.

i had 105k on it before i sold it to my brother and mine was just fine...was my daily driver for almost 2 years as well. it currently sits at 115 and no ripping in the steering wheel.


and i never though the interior looked terrible...but then again i was comparing it to Honda's and shit since thats all i had driven before. it wasnt an Audi or BMW or anything. it wasnt uncomfortable either. i would drive down to Yuma (700 miles) alone and comfortable. but whoeer said its a mass produced sports car....nailed it.

There's a difference between quality of materials and luxuriousness though, even if they go hand-in-hand. A lot of the domestic manufacturers have taken shit for using cheap-feeling plastics for the past couple of decades.

Harry, thanks for your thoughts.
