Granted the 80's C4's weren't too hot, but better than the C7 IMO

Just to continue to illustrate the range of tastes us humans have, I love the styling of the C7. It's not enough to get me to ever consider one, but I put it on positive side of the scale.

Ahh common! Seriously! You actually think the 80's C4's are better looking than the C7. That's crazy!

I personally think the C7 is an all around improvement over the C6.

Its all good. To each their own. I see why some people don't see the appeal in the C7 but I'm not one of them.

The C4 is doable to me, C7, looks like someone f¨cked a GTR, Camaro, Viper and a smiling face, and said, "Yes, C7"

I felt the same way about the Camaro+GTR when I first saw the Stingray. So I'm a bit put off about anything encroaching on the GTR style, but I do like both the Camaro and GTR styles so...guess it makes sense to me.


(Then again, love the Aston Martin nose on recent Fords, but hate it just because it's now on Fords...)

I love the looks except for the Camaro Tailights, people should get Z06 tailights conversion if they even have that

For $70k, I'd probably get a 2011 GTR and be done with it. But honestly, I do like the Stingray. I've hated Chevy cars for as long as I can remember. But this? Pretty sweet imo. And for a starting price of $51k? Seriously. Not bad. Especially for what you get. Beats the crap out of the Z every way from Sunday.

To most looking for something new. The C7 is going to be the hottest thing on the planet for the money. Performance wise it will be... But I think the opinion on looks is swayed by such huge performance numbers. People just see a machine that will outperform most other cars and automatically love it. But i think if people owned the car? Looks will die fast. It has all the classic looks of a "Novelty design" that will live a short time in the hearts of the people. My prediction is, this vette will be getting refreshed often. All exterior refreshes, due to rapid changes in popular opinion concerning design.

Its not hideous but it just looks so novelty. That design wont last the test of time.
DEpoint hit it on the head when he said (paraphrasing) the vette looks like a collage of sports cars... Thats the weak part of this car.

If I were to ever get it, I would for sure get it in black to hide all the lines of the car, and lease it for shortest term possible.
Would never fully buy one.
