Please tell me that's not what it looks like. The thing in the hood is a fail IMO (it looks out of place on the vette too). Not happy.

Ok I will say I'm extremely happy owning a 2012 at the moment. It looks Corvette inspired somewhat which is cool but I'm not sold on this. The hood looks out of place as well as the lower part of the front bumper. Now I'm anxious to see the 2014 ZL1...

Well if that is it I'll be one happy camper as I like the current version a ton better. Not only does the facia look funny, but the hood looks out of place too.

Not hating it, just liking the current version better.

Not only that, but hockey stripes would even look funny because the grill opening is more slanted outward on each side, causing the space for which hockey stripes would normally go to be way too narrow.


Yah, f*ck this thing. I'll get used to it eventually but I'll always be more pleased with the look of my 2011.

I don't know what to think. I'll wait to see more pictures but that front end is not nearly attractive as what is out now judging from that one picture. How would a 1LE look with that heat extractor? I'm sure it's functional but it looks out of place. I'm not extremely disappointed, just kind of a blah feeling right now. Maybe it will grow on me, but I loved everything about the 2010 when I first saw it.

I don't think the update is all that bad. It's different, for sure. More choices for the people, that's what it's all about. I reserve judgement until I see one in person. I didn't care for the new C7 until I saw it in person.

One comment on the front end. The lower half looks like a Mustang....IMO.

Sorry boys,

I like it! Car looks wider, lower and a bit more fluid.

Do I think it looks a lot better than the current car? Heck no.

Now for the rear end...........

I'm not a fan of the front. Looking forward to seeing the interier though, does anyone have a picture of the back?

Ok a bigger pic...

Dunno but the hood vent is still a fail to me. Looks like a coin slot.

If that's the real deal , I love the front end but I didn't see a pic of the rear of the car yet ?

EDIT: Now that I've seen the video it looks even better , can't wait to see it in person

I do have to agree with that.....but maybe the vents in the middle realistically vent the heat better. I still would say two vents would have been better than the one skinny one.

Pass. Not feeling the hood or the chrome strip, and the foglight openings on the front fascia look like they're borrowed from the Mustang, IMO.
