    Default New 2014 Corvette Revealed

    When General Motors engineers and designers started work on the next-generation Corvette, they drew up the usual requirements for the star of American muscle cars.

    Killer looks. Big engine. Handles like a race car.

    But topping the list back was something at odds with the roar of the car's big V-8: Gas mileage.

    The new Corvette could not be a gas guzzler. Stricter government rules were forcing a leap in fuel economy. If the car burned too much gas, it would trigger fines from regulators and never get built.

    "There won't be a Corvette if we don't care about fuel economy," said Tadge Juechter, the car's chief engineer.

    From the front and rear the new vette looks like it's trying to morph into Mitsubishi 3000GT. Yuck.

    I don't think it resembles a Lamborghini, at all, in pictures; the lamps are too far to the outside to resemble a lambo. The 3000GT's headlamps, however, are on the corners!

    I'll also say to you what I said to Nak -- one thing we can agree on is that it DOES NOT look like a Corvette front end. Compare it to the 60's vettes and the heritage lines just aren't there, up front ... or in the rear.
