Too much hype, not enough car. The 3 bullcrapers yapped and only showed the car at it's best angle, which wasn't that good.
Why wasn't it on a turn table, and why did they want to hide other angles.
The roof and hatch looks like the old mazda.

Maybe I saw something that was not there, but the last closeup of the tail lights made it NOT look like Camaro. There seemed to be no surrounds of that awful metallic stuff. (subjective opinion re awful, but correct nonetheless no offense intended to any Camaro owners/likers)

As to the preview "reveal" I guess it really is just a brief intro to try and get you there to look at it. But that's not a good way to do things imo. Kinda like rock and streams and trees.

If the interior is that great, I would've liked to have seen more of it with closeup cameras of the car onstage, maybe top off.

If the body is so well designed (and I am not saying it isn't---I just can't tell), why not do a walk around with camera at window-glass height for all the "po folk" who can't be there.

If that's the way to intro cars, I'm not in complete favor of it. jmo.

I think it looks fantastic. Can't wait for more and more information to come out. I hope the HP is north of 450.

Very exciting.

Bill, I agree that the intro was a total failure for people who were not there in person. GM didn't think that through very well.

and at 41.09 of the video thats what im not liking at this point, maybe in person somehow it will look different/better to me but IMO a opportunity wasted for the car to have an individualistic look not a similar one.

Ya... and how about that passenger grab handle, looks like a triangle down the center console... WTF is that , ruins a otherwise decent looking console

WTF video were YOU watching?


And since the question was asked...yes, I would want to drive a fast brick as long as it is a world class fastest newest, best designed brick out there.

Like the front end- Hate the rear end.
Interior general design reminds me of my C4.
Glad I bought a 2012 C6 Grand Sport.

Will reserve final judgement when I get to see one in person.

We've had every generation of Corvette in our family since 1979, but I never wanted to own one personally until now. The C7 appeals to me from every angle.

Nope, not feelin it.

The design just seems too busy for me. Too many body lines goin on.

And I agree with the vents and grilles everywhere, cheap plastic look. It has some interesting styling elements when you isolate them but taken in it's entirety don't think it works. The interior kinda looks like a throwback to the C4.

I'm sure the technical side will be cool.....

I watched it...not impressed...I have to see it in person; the interior looks like they ressurrected the C4 dash (?). The rear looks like a Pontiac and that little Stingray emblem they are making a big deal about looks stupid as hell to me.

I need to see a black C7 in person before I can comment on the body. I like the interior upgrades. I bet she's a sweet ride.

Bet it drives nice...
You cant call anything ugly when you own a GTO
