Thank God I bought a C6 GS last month. Those C7's are going to be sitting on the lots for a long time and the C6's are going to sell like hotcakes.

I doubt that and I'm not even sure that I will like the C7 yet.

The opinion is strong with this post.

No they won't... They'll sell just like every other Vette has sold when introduced. There'll be early adopters, coming from within the brand, and outside of the brand.

I too say no they won't..... unsuspecting buyers will also be paying hefty dealer markups on top of it. And, dealers will find the suckers willing to pay it.

A lot of people buy things just because they're new, fashionable or because it is the "best" they can afford. Not everyone is a purist, sometimes people just buy cars as an image, or a weekend toy, or to have the Next Big Thing. Some people buy cars for the gadgets on the insides, some people buy for the comfort or economy, others buy stripped out no-frills cars for the outsides, or the performance. That's why commercials always try to lure in the New Buyer - most people are "new buyers" when it comes to brand or car type.

They will sell - time will tell how well though.

Disagree completely. Regardless of whether or not *I* like the C7, it will sell well, at least initially.

Why? Well first of all, some people will buy it no matter what it looks like. Some people want the latest and greatest Corvette, some people will want it for status and some people will buy it just to buy it.

But again, regardless of looks, consider what we already know about it: more power, "improved" interior, more driver aids, more driver accessories and more options. It will be the best performance car for the price, AND it gets fuel mileage comparable to mid-size sedans.

The Corvette C7 will sell, whether you or I love it or hate it.

I'll agree with you on the sitting on the lots for a long time, but it is not the C7s that will be sitting.

Hint! Hint!

Sell your C6 GS NOW and avoid the rush..........

Congrats on your new GS, that's one beautiful ride and always will be. However, You're wrong, this is going to be one hell of a Vette. Albeit if i just bought a c6 a month before the c7 unveiling (opps!), I would probably be trying to justify my purchase as well. Sorry about your massive impending depreciation and...
Happy new year.

In my humble opinion, the new C7 will be an improved car in every aspect save one, the styling. If what we've been exposed to is accurate.

I don't agree one bit. I currently have my second C6. First one was a 2007 convertible. My current is an 09 Z06. I absolutely love the C6 but I am looking forward to the C7. The Corvette has proven generation after generation to be a premier sports car and the C7 will not fall short! While some may not like it's new design or some elements of it, I'd bet most will love it!

I for one really like the new design and stronly believe it will look much better in person. As such, I definately see a C7 in my future!

That said, Congrats on your C6 purchase! It's a great car but will be dated shortly by most peoples standards.. Change is difficult for many people, especially drastic change. We are seeing the same kind of revolt that we saw when the C6 info started leaking out but opinions changed and the C6 is now revered. My gut tells me, even you will be giving serious consideration to the C7 in the future. It will be leaps ahead of the C6 both in performance and design. Rest assured that it will even grow on even the most diehard C6 enthusiasts as well as the most staunch C7 skeptics and they will sell just fine. Rest assured!

And to add... While the C6 / C7 looks are subjective, the performance difference will be objective C7 > C6 and that.. will drive sales.

The newest and 'greatest' per se.

Lambo forums have the real deal design up, the dash looks like the vipers dash, the front end looks very nice, similar to C6 but nicer, side is still C5/C6. back end looks like a camaro and gtr mated.

Seats are better, but you will be disappointed with the rest(still allot of plastic)

It is a very corporate design, as I suspected for a mass produced vehicle , it will sell well , but as stated above , not many purists around anymore.

People are raving about heated/ cooled seats that will be in the C7.....

Thats not a nice thing to say... The square C7 lights if there on the money as a leak. Look like a mustang from the rear. I agree they are gonna sell it's just a better built car. I'm going to lease the first year. Then I'm going to give it back and lease me the 3rd year C7 Zo6 or is it Z07 Lol

The real dash designs have been posted here as well..

As for the comment about lots of plastic, vets have always had lots of plastic and I don't see a big issue with that. The higher end interior options offer more leather for those who want it. That said, short of more leather on the inside, what else should they be using? Metal such as aluminum?? I like the plastic body parts as they tend to eliminate the potential for many unwanted dings while also keeping weight and costs down. Carbon fiber would be nice but that would really drive the cost up.

Remember, this is not a lambo and the huge value in the Corvette is the fact that you could own two new Corvettes for the price of one low end Lambo. That while still having nearly comparable performance. Sure, it might not have the sex appeal but you certainly get 10x the reliability, comparable performance at a fraction of the cost both up front and long term. There has to be some level of compromise to deliver the kind of performance and value that Corvettes have delivered generation after generation.
