Default Holy Crap There Is NO Rear Visibility At All In The Coupe

Another reason for you not to buy one. Or buy a convertible.

And they said it didn't hurt rearward visibility.
I couldn't look through the rear window without getting a feeling of tunnel vision.
Thank God for back-up cameras.

I'd get used to it. That interior looks like hot secks. Interesting though that you can't see the rear quarter glass.

Put one of those truck signs on your rear that says "if you cannot see my side mirror, I cannot see you".

It should come standard with a Blind Spot Detection system.

Yeah that interior is awesome.

If you are always going faster than anyone around you, you don't need to concern yourself with what is behind you!! :P

Seriously though, I drive with my mirrors. All new cars rear visability sucks.

Big blind spot, on both sides. Will have to deal with it.

You are just going to have to learn how to set your rearview mirrors correctly. For over 30 years I survived in a C-2 coupe with only one rearview mirror on the outside and never hit anybody.

Adjust the side mirrors properly. Not pointing to the rear like 90% of drivers on the road do.

It is better than my C5 vert with the top up. A back up camera will alleviate the problem nicely in the C7.

You are going to love that backup camera if it's as good as the one on my SUV....it's all about what shows up on your display. Now if the OEMs would just let it be optionally active while driving forward, it would be even cooler. Best invention since the condom...

The C7 Stingray will revolutionize the way Corvette owners back over their own kids and pets in the driveway :/

Maybe this C7 coupe hatch will be a one year design like the 63 split window coupe.

LOL

As usual, people jump to conclusions.

If you look carefully, you will see that the camera is in the center of the car, not where the driver's head is. The change in perspective will be much different from that angle and with your head farther back. The fish eye camera lens also distorting the image making the rear look very far back.

However, the rear 3/4 view will not be great.
