Too futuristic from my tastes. Looks like they got that straight out of star wars.

I dont like as do alot of the members on the vette forums, but some do like it. The actual guy who designed it is a member on this forum and on the vette forum...It's cool from a design stand point but thank goodness it will not be the next C7

Corvettes are made in Bowling Green Kentucky. And before you guys get to happy it has been confirmed that this WILL NOT be the next generation Corvette

Thank god! The interior looks nice (besides the angular format, and especially the speedometers) but the exterior is just way to futuristic.

Too futuristic? That statement always makes me laugh for some reason. I love this concept and love even more the interior. It would sell like hot-cakes as the current design is simply "Blah" the more I see them on the road. GM really needs to come up with a C7 that looks very close to this design. Look what that did and how well it worked with the Camaro... Nuff said..

Most current and past Vette owners do not like it...but here is what Welburn had to say about it
http://blogs.insideline.com/straight...it-window.html

In an interview with Inside Line, Ed Welburn, General Motors' head of global design, father of the re-born Camaro, told us the next Vette will follow the 2010 Camaro down the road of retro-inflected styling

This was hinted at by the Corvette Stingray concept that was used in the second Transformers movie. "That car is not the next Corvette," says Welburn, "But the split-window is something that I expect for the next Corvette."

With the headlight redesign, the current Camaro looks a lot like the Ferrari 360 Modena. Most current Vette enthusiasts may not like the new Vette design, however it is a new audience Chevy needs to get interested in the Vette. Even if 40% of Vette enthusiasts like the Stingray concept, that is more than enough if it brings in the amount of people buying this car because they want the Batmobile.. If all they take is the split rear window from this concept, it won't be enough... I hope it the large rear flares are kept as well and that wonderful interior.. The front end may be too unrealistic for safety and production however it needs to be dramatic and completely different than the current design. Even if you lose some aerodynamics in the process.

Visit the Vette forums and do some research on this topic as it is new to this forum but has been going on for years over there and GM has never really had a problem with selling the vette as the Execs say "The Corvette keeps the lights on at GM" they are making an effort to keep them (loyalist) happy.
