Beautiful! Thanks for posting. Have to say I still prefer the red coupe, but they've done a great job on the convertible.

Love the car, but this lady is fake. She clearly doesn't know much/care about Corvettes. It really shows off as she's presenting.

I wish they'd limit the presenters to people who actually know the car.

It's pretty hard to keep the big wigs off the stage of a major product reveal. She is Susan Docherty, president and managing director of Chevrolet and Cadillac Europe.

Liked the music, but too much yada yada yada.

Vert looks good, and at lot more like a C6 to me than the coupe does.

She seemed well intended, but ill practiced. The C7 deserves, needs, the best possible introductions to the public

I understand your opinion but it is all about corporate politics. I think the C7 will do just fine as the intro will soon be forgotten and the looks of the Corvette will remain.

The old axiom comes to mind - you never get a second chance to make a first impression - and first impressions linger . . . . .

Why does the convertible look so much better than the coupe! It is sooo cool that I am thinking of trading my '04 C5 vert garage queen with 8400 miles and my '04 F150 Laredo with 49700 miles as a down payment on a new C7 convertible. I just don't know if I can do such a trade.

Oddly enough, lots of folks here have said exactly the opposite. As a '05 vert owner myself, I am really liking the coupe this time around. Haven't made any decisions yet tho.

people who are uncomfortable making a presentation sometimes don't. I tend to agree with the opinion above.
