Was just thinking after I did these, either the aftermarket or GM will make the money on this choice. Either way, many will opt for the body color for certain colors (blue, red, yellow, maybe green and maybe white).
I know for me, it would depend up my ultimate final choice of color and what looks best.
The cover of AUTOMOBILE has a VY with the body panels in the VY color.! Looks great!!
That looks better but I wouldn't have any black showing on the rear panel; much like the rear of the C5 (all one color). Those black inserts look like a cheap add-on to me.
The intention is to have it all color. In this case, I could not tell where the body panel ended and the shadow began. I'll post the cover of the mag, it's all one color (easy when it's an illustration).
I called Motor Trend and the clown that answered the phone had no clue as to what the March 2013 front cover looked like. Wow. So, I explained the oversight and suggested they relook their error before Magazines hit the shelves. If their customer service is any indication of their Quality Assurance program, it's no wonder this slipped by.

I like what you did with the photoshop. As you mention that will be one of the first DIY post on the forum once these new Stingrays hit the street.
As far as the different angles are concerned , I am sure it has a lot to do with the venting of air from the car. I am sure it flows the air out much better with less turbulence that having the back flat or rounded.
