Re: This is the 2014 Corvette Stingray

Body by Caddy, not a fan of the sharp edges and curves, too busy and a Camaro like rear end. Perfer the classic simple rounded C5Z shape, much like a E type Jag. Probably the pics don't do it justice, I hope so.

I bet Zora Arkus-Duntov and Larry Shinoda are trying to get tickets to the other place, as they probably think they have been re-routed to warmer regions. The rear end reminds me of those Hondas with the rubbermaid fenders.

I'm done ranting now. My daughter says she thinks I'm in serious need of therapy.
Wrong on multi counts

C4s were not round, go look at the ZR-1s
Those are not the same lights as the Camaro, C7 is using LEDs which reduce the voltage loads and to meet federal law required enough space to meet the light and distance amount required.

Anyone that buys a car on what tail lights look must spend more time with the car parked then racing on the track.

Round lights do not work with the C7 rear fascia

Re: This is the 2014 Corvette Stingray

Hope no one takes my comments to an extreme. While I still see a little more Camaro in the rear than I care for, I don't think this makes the model bad.
Terry indicates the rear end looks much better in person and I can surely wait until I see one to make my judgement.

With my C5Z I became a big fan of the FRC and was disappointed with the change in the C6Z. That doesn't mean I didn't buy a C6Z and have been very happy with it.

It is unlikely that any model is going to be exactly the look we want because each of us have different opinions on it. Until we become GM design engineers ourselves, we'll just have to appreciate what they come up with and hope we find things that impress us.

Does this mean I'll probably have a new Vette (hopefully Z06 if they make one) in my driveway in the next year or two? What do you think

Mike

Re: This is the 2014 Corvette Stingray

I like these rants, makes me feel better. I too, wanted the c6z to have that flat speed boat rear end, and if it had, I would have had to have one. When I bought my second c5z, there were 7 c6s and a couple c6zs together, and the z's didn't standout at all, at first glance. Having said that, my car has seemed slim in comparison when parked next to c6zs. That 02 McLaren shape is out to pasture. I think maybe ill just stick my engine in the rear and be done with wanting...

Not sure about that one. Front end looks good, but that back end would take some getting use to. Of course, it will be a long time before I could afford one anyway. I'll have to stick with the 08.

After seeing them on the road for a week or so you will know exactly what those lights are on.

Re: This is the 2014 Corvette Stingray

Another one of my OCD moments: The taillights are squarish not square.


On CF, somebody brought up an interesting point.
Did Corvette owners complained in 1970 when the new Camaro was revealed?
How about the 1971 Chevelle?

What's your point?

The Vette rear end didn't look like a Chevelle or Camaro so I'm not sure that comparison was made

I wasn't trying to make a point. Only pointing out that someone else did.

Kudos to Chevrolet for designing two of the sexiest all around body styles ever created on American soil!
