GM has ALWAYS used the Ferrari (Thank God) to model after.. I hope they will continue to do so!

Does that mean flying buttresses for the C7?

The one looks like a F-Body and the other is trying too hard to look European.

If I wanted a European car, i would just buy one, GM does not need to try build one.

Certainly they don't. They just need to build something people will buy. I have my fingers crossed for the success of the new Malibu.

I like it. I do prefer the C5's/C6's however.

Considering that the Corvette has LONG been "a poor man's ferrari" that kicks the rich-man's ferrari's ***, I think it's quite fitting that corvette should continue to crib some of ferrari's style. Though I don't really see the ferrari inspiration in that picture. It looks more lamborghini. Ferrari vehicles aren't that angular.

Corvette has a long and storied history of taking ferrari cues. The tail-lamps, for example, are classic ferrari.

Something I'd like to see: A rear-window treatment like the new GTB (which has got to be the most beautiful vehicle in recent history)

I like it! It looks more agressive than a 430. I hope G.M. does a convertible Z06 version. It would be interesting with a flex fuel (hydrogen similar to the new Honda perhaps amoung the fuels) capability. Just supercharge it and convert the hydrogen from natural gas (which we have plenty of in this country). G.M. dependability, more agressive than a 430 looks; helping to choke the middle east of their oil income used to fund terrorists. The Muslim brotherhood wouldn't know what hit them.

It just isn't a Corvette ... It's a wannabe Lambo ...

I'll buy myself another C3 instead ...

I'd rather see a C3-based retro theme.... kinda like Chrysler did with the Challenger and Ford did with the latest Mustang.

I really like the yellow one...but they should keep it front engine!

I'm not against a mid/rear engine GM vehicle; just don't name it Corvette, or give it Fiero-like quality.
