Oh-Oh Looks like the guys who did the ugly new Camaro have been at play..

It is a little squashed looking, surely (don't call me Shirley) they are not going to make a car that needs a Sealy Posturepedic for a seat? You would need to lie down in that puppy. I see a second car in the rear, are you sure this is the new car..? For sure, the Palooka in the photo on Autoblog is never going to fit in that mutt..





Even this guy finds it less than "The Car Of The Future"

It remindes me of the Indy concept car of years ago. I like the front end but not the back.

yes - i think it looks very good as well - i would buy it for sure --- but like it was stated above im sure the production model will not look as futuristic -

I really like the front end and you can definitely see some Corvette lineage there with the fenders and grill (on the one on the right) but if that's an early look at the C7, you can bet that it's not going to be so chop-topped in production.

After all guys like me (I'm 6'6") have to fit too! But I agree that the rear end is pretty hideous.

Remember tho that this is supposed to be a Transformers movie - a movie about futuristic robots, so maybe those Autobots have a little taste of their own and have stopped simply copying our cars to get a little style of their own!

I like it alot

Enough retro feel to know it's a Vette, and a new enough design to know it's not just an evolution of the C5/6

Here's a concept that looks better and has the tunnel back window like the early C3's.


This one's meant to be a mid engine concept. Not my favorite one tho.
