Just opinion, but C5>C6 ANYDAY! And I wouldn't mind having the pop-up lights come back either!

My biggest fret with appearance of the C6 is that there ALL (with the exception of a very small amount of hardtop convertable) COUPES! They took the FRC/Z06 look away, and the coupe just can't hang with the looks of the hartops!

Other than that, driving a C6 is...ok, it's fast but too refined, a C5Z is a raw, nasty, muscled, sports car!

C6Z rapes the C5Z, so compare apples to apples. Even the C6 Z51 can nearly match a C5Z in performance!

Exactly. In fact, the Nurburgring time for the C6 z51 is 7:59, while the C5 z06 does it in 7:56. That's a 3 second difference on an 8 minute track. Sounds like a driver's race to me. And although I think the C5 is a beautiful car, that notch back look of the hardtop really turns me (and most other people) off.

That being said, if I'd had $5000 less I most likely would have gotten a C5 z06 instead of my C6 z51.

When I have gone to the local car shows where there are a number of different makes, it seems the Aston Martin Vantage is the one car the masses seem to appreciate the most. Not that the Corvette should be styled after the Vantage but the smooth lined approach may be worth considering. The idea of moving the car technologically is a must as well.

Default C7 Style

Sides look like a vette on steroids, not bad. The front looks like part Caddy, could use some work. The Backside is a mess, maybe using leftover Pontiac parts.

...........while the C6 got it right! I own the even mumbered generations - C2, C4, and C6 - and while I think my '67 is the best looking of any year vette I give the C6 a close second. Nothing wrong with the C5 - if you like oversized booty!

OK, its not all bad, I do like the tapered raised portion in the middle of the hood, it looks taller than the C6.

Was that too harsh...



I don't think so!
Definitely a Cadivette. I would rather see the concept car in production.

I agree i loved the C3 and didn't really care for the c5 at all, the c6 is IMO the best looking vette ever.
this c7 is butt ugly and that's good i won't be tempted to buy one

I own to C6s and a C5. I kept the C5 because it's a better looking Car. The C6s are better all around performers in spite of the "smiley" face. And, the very generic looking headlights.
