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

    I will see if I can score some tickets to the North American International Auto show in Detroit. If I can I will try to get some pics of the Vette. Things always look different in person and when photos are taken by normal people not professionals. I am mostly interested in the new trucks though.

    I love this Vette, the bulging fenders and center hood section give you that feel of the 60's vettes without being retro. The interior looks great, I love the oh **** handle for the passenger. The rear end gives you hints of the Volt and Camaro while still sticking to iconic look of the Vette. I would almost bet this thing will get a 30 mpg rating for the HWY. so many small features still say this has flavor of Corvettes of the past while still showing there is room to grow as it heads into the future. Thank you for NO AWD or mid engine or the rumors that had been surrounding the C7 for months.

    I have no idea how you get the impression the tail end looks like a 3000GT or a "Dodge Stealth" :)

    It looks more like a lotus or ferrari rear end.

    I disagree. However, one thing on which we CAN agree is that it DOES NOT look like a Corvette tail end. That's a problem, by itself...

    It actually looks more like a modified (modern) camaro rear end.

    Which still isn't a Corvette rear end. :)

    A Corvette rear end is whatever GM decides to put on the rear end of a Corvette.

    With that being said, the 2014 Corvette rear end does slightly resemble the Camaro rear end.

    Are you part of the latest generation of people that treats almost everything as if it is disposable? If not, then I'd think you'd want GM to keep rather than dispose of the Corvette's heritage lines.

    GM can call something a Corvette all they like but if people don't see the lineage or like it ... it won't sell. :)
