Yeah, I always have to see a car in person before passing final judgement, sometimes pictures just don't do it justice, and then sometimes pictures can hide the ugly...

I think the show car in pictures features the Z51 package...otherwise - it's base model!

Holy Crap, right?!?!?

What do you mean by production intent? Is that EXACTLY what the car will look like.

The Camaro had production intent and was slightly different which was a bit of a bummer. Safety reasons or otherwise.

Well I guess I knew it wasn't a concept but my question is will even ONE line, light, slope, height, or ANYthing on the production model be different?

What you see is what you will get. It's not a concept.

No. Nothing will change. THAT is the new Corvette.

I don't think they ever showed off a "production intent" Camaro...

At any rate - say hello to the C7 as it will appear in showrooms!

What I meant by production intent was that they said they'd keep it as close to the concept as possible. (Camaro)

As long as my car will still beat a base model C7 in the quarter then I'll be happy.

I was afraid, based on the Jalopnik "spy renders"...glad they haven't lost their hack-job touch, because the real car is to die for!

I remember what one of the GM Brass said about benchmarking Audi for interiors, and trying to do better.....Daaammmmmnnn, I think they hit is spot on!

Ah yeah, I see what you're saying.

Whatever helps you sleep at night, right?

From the sounds of it, this car is a tick better in all performance measures than a Grand Sport Corvette. A base car!!!

Sorry not a fan at all. Glad I got a ZL1 instead of holding out for this thing. Maybe seeing one in the flesh will change my mind as is often the case, but I'm not like it at all so far.

If it's only a tick then I'll sleep at night. lol

So there is finally a car on the road that I think looks better than mine.

I bet Chevrolet will take some heat over those tail lights but I like them.

The car over-all does have some gimmic qualities to it (much like the 4th Gen Firebird and Trans-Am) but since it's a Vette it will pull them off just fine in the real world. Mainly on the rear.

But there will be no doubt coming up behind one.

It's estimated numbers. It is also going to be lighter than current Corvettes so you may not need more HP....

Weight?

Wow I am truly stunned. Bravo GM and all of its employees for creating this. The article talked alot about weight reduction but does anyone know what the full weight of the car is?

Or the MSRP?

Its ok i guess, I just hate the rear end, shape is still the same, front looks like a Ferrari, but it rack up some killer performance numbers! That Red One is a beauty, wonder what the Z07 will look like? Just wish it were the same design like the Transformer Stingray...Now that was so damn sexy that i almost wet my pants lol.

I still think that the 1LE & ZL1 are Best Bang For Buck Cars!
