2014 Corvette: This is it!!!

 I must say I was completely wrong. From these pictures, and in that color, it looks fantastic to me.

So far we know:
-6.2 Liter V8 with 450hp
-Better than 26MPG
-7 speed manual
-Carbon fiber hood and removable roof panel
-On sale 3rd quarter of 2013.

Also remember that the current model starts at $50 000. There should be a bump for the new one, but it's usually not that much.
Looking really good, great interior and 450 hp for the price of a base Boxter.
This could be great....

Though it does away with several 'iconic' Corvette styling elements e.g. round tali lights, wrap-around rear window et al, I still find it Stunning!

If the seats are actually comfortable I will seriously consider buying one this go round!

Are they all going to be stingrays? I'm interested in seeing the other trim levels.

Reminds me of an updated version of KITT from Knight Rider.

Johnny Carson would be proud to own this.

Wow, it looks like for once, GM actually produced something that is truly world class.

I have to say though, that rear end is terrible. Looks NOTHING like what a Corvette should, it almost looks like it came from a completely different design team than the rest of the vehicle.

to me, by attaching the rear end styling of the camaro to an iconic corvette seems to lessen the overall design. not a fan

It is.
So what.
It's still a stand-out.

(KITT was a '90's Firebird designed by the same GM guys (and using a few of the same parts) as the similar-looking '90's Corvette)
