I thought the recent years Covette was butt ugly.

this one is not to bad but now looks like all the Japanese cars from the side.

I wonder what the Top Gear guys will have to say about it. they tend to not like American cars much. Well Richard Hammond seems to like them.
Most of the times it comes down to them not liking the way most of them corner at high speeds (over steer/under steer etc)but it seems like American cars are starting to catch up on that issue.

Too bad it's built by the same "engineers" that brought you the Cavalier. My first new car, and last-ever General Motors POS. I personally wouldn't touch it if it was given to me for free.

Interesting, they've got an older Porsche thing going on.

Sorry but the Corvette to me has been lame since 1973. I've said it for years...Chevrolet needs to break out of their tired mold and really bring the Corvette into the future. Every time I see "the new Vette" it's a disappointment to me. Enough with trying to look like a Corvette from previous years. It's time to be radically different. Even this new Stingray, as cool as it may look to many, to me, still looks like a Corvette with maybe a few new lines. Meh.

Sure I am biased, after all, nothing beats the lines of an Italian supercar to me like the Lambo or Ferrari, but that's the refreshing design mind that needs to be considered IMO.

Anything less, is, well...What we've been getting from Chevy since 1973.

For instance...If you showed me this image and said this was a glimpse of the 2014 Vette, I would say, "Now we're getting somewhere..."

There's a few running around here now and a guy I've done some business with just took delivery of one. Hasn't come by yet with it, but I've been promised a chance to drive it. Can't wait.

I can understand some of the appearance comments I'm reading here as a car like this should be certain way for certain people, but when you look at it purely from a mechanical and performance standpoint, it is really something else. A lot about comfort and stability has been improved with this car. Subsequent, higher horsepower versions to be released later will be even more impressive. The ones I've seen blasting past the shop with mustangs and hemis chasing look and sound pretty awesome.

I like it, I think it looks really nice especially the convertible stingray, however I still like what Caddy is doing with the CTS-V more.

Not as "trying too hard" as I was expecting, but it does look like it got the Pixar treatment.

I kind of get what you're saying, but c'mon man, you're comparing a sporty American coupe that starts at around $50k, to Italian supercars that start at $200k and go up rapidly from there. That's just not a fair comparison at all, it's like comparing a Hyundai Elantra to a BMW M3.

Car design, by way of Battlestar Galactica. Nice...

Aesthetically I don't dig it so much as the current car. Looks like they tried to crossbreed the Camaro and Corvette. No Corvette fan, but the current car is tough to ignore for bang for the buck.

Bang-for-the-buck wise, the Corvette is tough to beat. If I had that kind of cash to spend on a toy, I would look elsewhere. I may not get as much performance, but I'm thinking maybe a Saleen Mustang...

I didn't even notice that. Why you gotta betray us, J?

I agree 100% with Aros. I haven't liked any Corvette since the original Stingray. My Aunt and Uncle owned one, won plenty of car shows with it, then sold it and that added a nice supplement to their retirement income.

With that said, I have undoubtedly respected Corvettes since the C6 Z06 and ZR-1 came out. Those two cars are amazing performance/dollar vehicles. Corvettes and GTR's have been THE budget super cars the last few years.

I have always been a bigger fan of the Viper. To me, that car is different from everything else on the road just about. The only car maker that has made something similar (IMO) to a Viper in the past 20 years is TVR, because no one makes cars so bare-bones, inherently dangerous and fulfilling to drive - at that type of price point.

A Viper is a big boy's driver's car. 6 speed manual connected to a V10 with rear-wheel drive, ABS (as of around 2000 give or take a year), side-exit exhaust and not much else.

I have always thought the styling was more attractive on Vipers and this generation of each has set the Viper farther apart from the Corvette in my opinion. The new Corvette, to me, looks like a hack job of trying to take the C6 and make it look like a Ferrari. I honestly think it took a step back. The headlights and lines on the hood coupled with that grill are appalling. I think the rear-end looks pretty good, though I'm not sold on the Camaro-style brake lights. I still haven't seen a new Corvette in person, which is the point at which I will make my final decision on the car's looks.

Some cars just look way better in person :p

No way, get the new GT500 Mustang. Most horsepower out of a production V8 in the world. This is coming from a Saleen fan :p

Amen brother! I do like the blue color though. Of course, blue is my favorite color.
