Re: This is the 2014 Corvette Stingray

Seems they have made a real attempt to enclose the wheel in the wells and integrate the mud flaps to minimize road rash. Will no doubt still require paint protection on the rocker panels to ensure that rear flare does not get destroyed. Darker colors will be more capable of smoothing over the black inserts on the body. Not a big fan of the rear end or the electronic dash but technology has come a long way since 1984. Will be interested to see what the Z06 package might add in the future, if there is a Z06. I am afraid that if a Z06 does show up in the future that the price will be well beyond $100K+.

Re: This is the 2014 Corvette Stingray

I am in love. I must say that if this followed the C5 generation it would be hard to accept. We have gotten use to the big change with the C6's and this new car is killer. I still love the curves on my C5Z06. One of each would be very cool to own. I have not seen a price yet.

Re: This is the 2014 Corvette Stingray

Amazing....I watched the reveal online and loving every aspect of this car. I am glad I traded my C6 in for my ZL1....this will fit nicely right beside it...and will definitely be black!

Re: This is the 2014 Corvette Stingray

I am not sure if I like it. The first pictures of the C-6 were not too good and I stuck with the C-5Z that I had at the time. When the C-6Z came out I liked it as much as the C-5Z and picked one up (VY). I will wait to see one in person and hope they come out with a Z before I get one.

Like the looks of the front end and the sides. Interior looks great also, especially the racing seat option. Not liking the back so far, but need to see one in person before I pass judgement on it!

Re: This is the 2014 Corvette Stingray

Won't go too far out on a limb until I see one up close.
At first glance I like the front and sides but the rear end seems very 'Camaro-ish' if you know what I mean. Not a deal breaker but does injure the overall look IMHO.

Wheels look good and like others mention, the black seems to be the best looking color on this model.

Love it. Might just make it easier for me to pickup a C6 now.

I agree Mikesz06... too camaro-ish in the tail section..thats was the first thing I said when I saw this online. And that rear window is just asking for lane changing accidents...huge blind spots...but then again, eyes forward on the dragstrip.

When I first saw the back of the car on youtube, the first thing that came to mind, was that GM had just created a 2 seater Camaro. Freakin' bean counters at it again to save some bucks. :eek2:

I'm not one to defend bean counters (:D), but it might not be all their fault this time. I blame the executives who want to create a cohesive "corporate product identity" across all models - never mind the fact that most Corvette owners would rather their car not be associated with Camaros and Malibus.

Oh well, at least they didn't stick a giant Chevy bowtie on it.

Re: This is the 2014 Corvette Stingray

Cool but need to see one in person.
--It will be interesting to see if the interior is any better or if they are just trying to talk it up. One thing for sure, the mags ( Road and Track, Motor Trend, ect ) will mention how it "falls short" of euro quality.
--The little stingray on the side looks kind of silly to me, but nothing that a heat gun and a little fishing line would not solve.
--When I saw the chrome "grill insert" , thought of the chrome bumper 70's cars.

Re: This is the 2014 Corvette Stingray

But that wrap-around interior looks just god awful. It just does not blend at all with the passenger side. I don't get it. Back end is a camaro, front and side and 3/4 view is great though.

Re: This is the 2014 Corvette Stingray

The rear does look a little camaro-ish....but really guys...its not the same lights so it can't be a cost saving issue....besides give us Camaro owners a break...It is possible to be a fan of both... Being honest the rear is the only part that will need to grow on me. Everything else is fantastic.
