My god this C3 retro talk makes me want to puke. Lets keep the car moving forward... Can't we get past the aqua velva, gold chain C3 yet? Ugly.

And I'd love a mid engine Vette by the way!

Yuck. I wouldn't buy either one. The one on the right looks like an old F-body 90's Camaro and the one on the left looks, well........just plain old ugly. I am so happy that GM keeps their new Vettes top secret so I at least know they won't look like that.

I think the yellow one looks great, I would put my money down for that. The red one does nothing for me.

I think the new "ferrari" look very much suits the Corvette, especially since it is considered "America's Supercar". That being said, if my knowledge serves me correctly, the Corvette was based somewhat after the Fords of the time....each car has a "base"...the Vette just took off its own way afterward.

C5/C6 reliability has been crap, to be honest....atleast so says Consumer Reports...

Aqua Velva and Gold Chains!!!

Yeah, I agree with one thing here, leave the "retro" for the car makers who are trying to make something-of-nothing, like they are.

A mid-engine Vette would further the evolutionary steps that it has been taking over the decades...

..although, i'm only 90% for a mid-engine car....I think the Vette should remain "America's Supercar", but should not enter into the world of the "Exotic"....maybe one "specialty" version, at some point.

Either that picture isn't scaled right or the C7 concept is wide as hell.

i think a "poll" is in order here concerning the mid engine layout vs. the current front engine platform. if you remember the corvette history, zora arkus duntov tried for years to go with a mid engine layout but was always shot down due to corporate politics/policies. it would be really interesting to see a corvette finally go in this direction and see just what kind of world class supercar general motors could build.
