Nailed, too bad, the front is a distinct improvement over the C6

Default Finally...

Gentlemen, ladies...GM has finally come to it's senses. At last, the real true performance C7 prototype with the most advanced suspension has been introduced...the new C7 Corvette F55, with AWD and an advanced twin turbo 327 V8 developing 555hp, this new, aluminum-framed, Kevlar-bodied Corvette is the replacement for the aged Z06.

This atrocity looks like nothing more then a modded c5.

nice photoshopping! whoever did it. I actually like it....the second picture would be awesome as the "zo6" hardtop version. But we all know that its' going to have a fast back design. Any pictures of the "mid engine" ?

This thing will make John Cafaro throw up. This thing is just plain Ugly. If GM wants to get into the Movie business, then do that and leave the designing of cars to someone who's interested in it.

I'm glad you like it. I do too and can only hope we can get something close to some of these images I added in the future.

Unless you divert it into brake rotor cooling??? Hmmmmm.... I think the back needs work, it needs the classic large double round taillights

I really don't care so much about the exterior look of the C7 vehicle, while curious, it's just not where I believe that GM should be focusing IMO!

The Corvette has never looked bad!

While of course there have been some oddities with the Corvette throughout the decades my largest problem for the modern Corvette is the fit, finish, and long term drivability/durability.

C4, C5Z, C6Z owner here!

My C6Z is top notch! I love it. It is hands down more ballz to the walls fun to drive, track, and look in comparison to my GT3, GTR, and E63...but in terms of fit, finish, lack of rattles, and better warranty, it lacks severely! But my C6Z is a great car, the most fun to drive of all in my stable, and not a single car manufacturer can put a car like this on the street for less money...So, GM needs to do one thing and one thing only in either of the two following incarnations!

Build a Supercar Corvette...not a ZR1! Build this new Super Uber Vette with an entirely different interior, seats, suspension, the works! Don't just slap some old 6.2L engine with last years technology and a supercharger into a 5 year old chassis and upgraded garden variety GM body with fancy fender flares, the same crappy unsupportive seats, the same plastic dash as a Corvette costing $45,000 after rebates, suck-ups, and discounts, along with a crappy looking set of 20" wheels and tires with RUN-FLATS!

Better yet, Build the car from scratch! GM has always been and currently is unable and incapable of competing with the Supercars of the World when it comes to building a car for the masses, not just American FAT ASSES...Yes, it is true!!!

GM, if you want respect, stop at the Z-06 or go for it ALL!

Fantastic photoshop work!

If it looked like that with the Stingray's intakes on both sides, i'd be saving my pennies.

Too bad all the old traditional farts would never approve of it and it'll never see the light of day beyond the Corvette Centennial Concept.
