Looking at the 2014 Corvette I don't see that GM is abandoning the Corvette's heritage. Do you want the 2014 Corvette to have a carburetor and chrome side pipes? Automobiles evolve. The 2013 Silverado bears little resemblance to say a 1971 Silverado, but yet it is accepted and people call it a Silverado. The current generation of Corvette while powerful, overcame its short comings with sheer brute force. I've sat in quite a few of the current generation Corvettes and while they are cool, the interiors are somewhat primitive looking and lack in the fit and finish of a car costing $70K or greater. The 2014 Corvette hopefully will address a lot of the short comings of the current generation and make the car truly world class.
