corvette concept

pretty cool vette concept from a design student. I wouldnt be mad at all if the new vette looked like this. not really feeling the head lights or the hood, but nice looking car anyway.

personally, i wish gm would just release the concept from the transformers movie just like they did the camaro.

I'm with you on that. I know what people say about the visibility issues it would have, but that concept would be my dream car. The convertable or possibly just topless version for T3 looks good as well.

The rendering looks cool, but I don't think it looks quite as good as what they have now.

The tail lights need work cause they are not very corvettish. But I am impressed with this rendering.

Yep, tail lights need either-or... not both round and rectangle.

Overall, I like (most of) it.

Love the back end, but the front looks too much like a C6.

Agreed. If they duplicated the 458 styled tail lamps into the outer pair and put a little crease over both to create some sort of dual teardrop effect that'd work nicely. Up front, needs an eggcrate grille and more pronounced fenders. Vert headlamps molded into the fender arcs would look better.

Kid hit it on the head. Not to radical, and says "I've got Vette blood in me."

Now for the split window and reverse mohawk on the roofline and.. Mmm.

I like the back and sides, not crazy about the front... but I agree... needs the 4 tail lights.

from the side it looks very much like the C6. from the front a little too futuristic.
getting a new Corvette just right must be a tough job, when you think about it.

I can definitely see the C7 Corvette in these pics. Not a big fan of the rear though. There needs to be 4 distinguishable taillights....just like how it's been since 1961.

i like the back lights. Its bold and different. Corvettes havent always had 4 round lights in the back so they shouldnt hand cuff themselves with that boring setup. You saw how long it took to get rid of the pop-up front ones.
