Probably pretty close. Looks better than the Coupe renderings.

Until this rendering, I never really understood why folks hated the rear end. I do now!

as the owner of a VYZ06 -- I have a huge weakness for yellow... hot pics, (and i know it's been said 10000X) but damn that rear is ugly.

The front and sides are just HOT - it's a corvette with some euro spice (to me) From the side I'm reminded of a Gallardo a little bit.

I know we are a month away from the final reveal but if it wasn't for that ugly *** rear I'd be contemplating getting rid of my Z.

the renderings are getting better. Still a lot of details missing that will have a huge visual impact, such as the u shaped tailights and vents in the rear bumper. The rocker panel on the mules have a large flare right at the rear wheel.

I like the front. Anything behind the back of the door is downright ugly imo

Those are the best quality renders I think I've seen yet.

.. But somehow the car itself doesn't look as exciting to me in those images. Maybe partly because convertibles don't really do it for me.

IF this is it....I'm really starting to think that it is a warmed over C6 from the front and just pure suckass in the back. But I will probably change my mind when I see it.

Lets take a closer look. The hood vent is faired at the correct location. We see the double ridge line on top of the fenders. The top of the rear deck is simular to the camo car. The rear quarter panels taper as the camo car. The top looks right. The exhaust enclosure doesn't seem right, there are no vents. Pretty close??

Probably about as accurate as this was.

I hope the actual car is WAY better looking. I know, "hope" is not a strategy . . .
