I like it....it's different. You just can't keep things the same cause you like it. This is evolution people, it will be different and some will not like it but it will grow on you. I for one am glad they radically changed it, they need to keep up with the Joneses, like Lambo, Ferrari, Porsche..... We have an American made beast for a fraction of the cost of the other cars that is attainable for people who were not born with a silver spoon stuck up their ass elephant

I agree with Rob here...I'm not super crazy about it or anything, but I think it looks cool. Do you know how many people despised the '63 Corvettes when they came out? lol

I really like it. Everything but the taillights. They shoulda been rounder. But still, a nice evolution, you can still tell it's a vette, and it makes a statement.

Eh, nothing about the looks excite me right now, but the power does! the taillights will grow on me along with the rest of it, but for now I still like the last body a bit more.

Weird, I NEVER liked the look of a C6. I still don't.

This cars appeals to me way more than that one ever did.

I'm still a fan of the C4's and C5's though. If I could get my fat ass in and out of a C4 easily, then I'd have one in the driveway right now. Or someone's driveway, anyways, while I'm homeless. Wink They are DIRT CHEAP!

OH HELL YEAH!

If I could justify having a vette I'd run a C4 everyday! It'd be fun! Twisted Evil

If I got a C5 I'd end up building it and dumping loads of money into it though, so I can't do that! Laughing

C6's look good to me, but I can't afford one until the C8 comes out

I was a huge fan of the C6, and I might me in the minority here, but I love the looks of the new one. I think it has been well thought out and looks like it can compete in all arenas including looks with all the super cars.

I have my eyes on an 85 C4.... I'll keep ya posted. I hardly need it, but might be able to pick it up for next to nothing.

So I have had a day to absorb it. Rolling Eyes

Anyways. I like it. I have been a corvette fan since the 1984 release in early 1983. I loved the C4, and C5. the C6 was pretty sweet too. I just did not like the loss of the hideaway headlamps that had been on every corvette since 1962.
This new car takes it to the next level as only Chevrolet Corvette can. I am not a fan of the tail lamps. But since everybody else will see them, and not me. I can overlook them.
I do have to say there is a striking resemblance to the GT-R. Surprised

The back looks like a Mustang puked on a Camaro.
