Saw that earlier today and thought it was pretty ugly looking. No pop-up headlights again and Camaro tail lights. Don't like the side view or the view of the back either. The seats looked nice though . . .

Yup. The 2014 Corvette Stingray is what they are calling it.

I like the fact that they are bringing back the famed "Stingray" name ..not crazy about the Camaro look on the rear... guess it will grow on me... I remember when the rubber bumpers came out in the 73/74 models.. hated them.. but by 1980, they grew on me ... the drivetrain looks to be pretty impressive tho..7speed trans! gotta luv that

Unhappy

IMHO I like the C-6 body better.
The aluminum frame and the technology advancements for the C7 are unbeatable though
Does anyone know if the C-7 has Direct Fuel Injection? I read it does have multiple cyl. displacement.
