Jesus Christ that is hideous. Anyone seen driving one of those in public should be mocked and possibly egged.
 
2013-01-13 08:22:28 PM
Looks like a Charger and a Viper had a baby.
 
2013-01-13 08:24:17 PM
Things were going pretty well for a while, but now it's returning to its redneck roots. Still a good performing car.
 
2013-01-13 08:26:12 PM
We are not amused

/seriously... that looks like a real ugly Viper
 
2013-01-13 08:29:20 PM
The thing is that anyone with any brains has gotten as far away from the American Auto industry as possible, hence the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette, Camaro taillights and all.

You're more of a Pinto man.

That actually doesn't look that bad to me.  I am, however, known to have terrible taste in cars.

Heh... I had one of those

/traded it for a Triumph Spitfire
//actually, they were both spitfires, come to think of it
///the corvette is still kinda ugly
 
2013-01-13 08:55:14 PM
Looks like a Transformer.
 
2013-01-13 09:01:33 PM
Cool looking car, imho

/for a chic vehic'

Thinks the Stingray is a bad idea:

If I had enough money to afford that car I would not be buying that car.

lines are so "un-clean", side inlets or whatever those are just look tacky.

Sure, why not.
 
2013-01-13 09:16:25 PM
Looks like they just said "Oh, the Camero is selling well? Let's style the Corvette a lot like it!"

basemetal: [img.gawkerassets.com image 640x360]

Sure, why not.


Looks like A GT-R and a C6 Corvette meshed together.
 
2013-01-13 09:17:14 PM
Very hot. I would give my right nut for it kind of hot.
 
2013-01-13 09:17:55 PM
Probably one of the best looking small penis compensators I've ever seen.

fusillade762: Looks like a Charger and a Viper had a baby.


I was going to say Camaro and Viper.
 
2013-01-13 09:18:35 PM
Looks like somebody chopped the front clip off of a gtr
 
2013-01-13 09:18:52 PM
None of the angle-y lines seem to have a purpose, they're thrown all over the car like scrabble pieces.
 
2013-01-13 09:19:43 PM
I'm sure I won't ever buy one; but I like the look.
 
2013-01-13 09:19:56 PM
If the base $50K I'm hearing is for real, I'd seriously consider one.

/kinda useless in winter, will have to settle for a WRX, Wrangler Rubicon, or F150 Raptor
 
2013-01-13 09:20:10 PM
I would expert some rather seriously worded correspondence from Maranello, GM.
 
2013-01-13 09:20:19 PM
I couldnt get past the embarrassing guitar solo.
 
2013-01-13 09:20:25 PM
The only thing that bugs me is the power decrease. Werent they up to 505 or 550 hp? What gives? Is this Obama's bullshiat fuel mileage requirements kicking in?
 
2013-01-13 09:20:36 PM
Sad that for the past decade the Vette has been taking styling cues off the Viper. Not saying the Viper is bad, I like the car, but sad that the iconic Vette seems to be trying to duplicate it's younger brother....
 
2013-01-13 09:20:53 PM
They couldn't even bother to put an engine with the same hp as a CTS-V. Weak.
 
2013-01-13 09:21:28 PM
I guess I'm in the minority here, I like it.
 
2013-01-13 09:21:36 PM
The front end looks just like a Pokemon character.
 
2013-01-13 09:21:56 PM
I'm not getting a "corvette" vibe from it.

Let's see how The Stig takes to it.
 
2013-01-13 09:22:27 PM
Oh, there's a Eurotrash "supercar" on the page, too, but surely the 'Vette's picture will be next....wait, that's the 'Vette? Ah, crap.
 
2013-01-13 09:22:27 PM
Proof that American styling is still way behind everyone else.

/except Ford
 
2013-01-13 09:22:30 PM
Let me guess Live axle rear suspension with an open diff?
 
2013-01-13 09:22:57 PM
Change scares me so i hate it ok i like it a lot now
 
2013-01-13 09:22:59 PM
Looks like a big, retarded Lotus.

DemoKnite: I couldnt get past the embarrassing guitar solo.


Muted the sound and skipped ahead several times, until the actual car appeared. It helped.

Those days have been gone for a while on the 'vette. Still fun to talk about though!

The only thing vette owners do with all that horsepower is try an jackrabbit out of a parking lot, break traction and skid into a curb.

That's the Z06, which has a different V8 from the base Vette.  Base Vettes hover around 400 HP.

That said, I would give Rush Limbaugh a big sloppy beej for a Z06 version of this.
 
2013-01-13 09:24:06 PM
Meh.
Could be worse.
 
2013-01-13 09:24:15 PM
I like it. Lean and mean looking.
 
2013-01-13 09:24:16 PM
Looks cool to me, but then again I'm not that into cars so what do I know?

You're kidding. The certainly seem to handle like they've got them.
 
2013-01-13 09:24:27 PM
I will kill everyone in this thread to oen that car.

/give me that farking car
 
2013-01-13 09:24:32 PM
Listen, I'm up there in age now. So I want my motherfarking KITT mobile that talks to me and follows my commands. I really don't care about the latest Chevy 2014 I Have A Small Penis Mobile. I want my sentient car and I want it now!

marsgwar: They couldn't even bother to put an engine with the same hp as a CTS-V. Weak.


The base C6 has the 430hp LS3. The C7 has the new 450hp LT1.

ZO6 / ZR1 models will be along next with much more HP.
 
2013-01-13 09:25:07 PM
Too many holes and bumps all over it. Looks like it was carved with a big chisel then tinkered with for too long.
 
2013-01-13 09:25:07 PM
For the Small Penised Man on a Budget, the new Chevy Corvette
 
2013-01-13 09:25:28 PM
I like the front, but the rear is too.. busy, I guess.

And fluffy, the 'vette has had IRS and positrac for a long time. Although, they still use transverse leaf springs.
 
2013-01-13 09:25:52 PM
It looks like a different person was responsible for each part of the body, and they worked independently.
