    I like the front, but the rear is too much like the Camaro and GTR, neither of which come close to being good looking.

    7-speed manual is an interesting development. I also read somewhere that if it wasn't for fuel economy the car would be lighter (cylinder deactivation, direct fuel injection et al are apparently quite heavy). As it stands it will weight about the same as the outgoing car.

    If it's priced right why not, altough it will be as residual as Cadillacs in Europe...

    For being the "flagship", the similarities are just too similar especially for being a new model. I like it, but they could have been a little more creative.

    Camaro vs. Corvette



    And ive exhausted my photoshop abilities.

    Overall shape and design completely stolen from Ferrari and the 599, the taillights aren't round to avoid a complete copy

    The design is not really that similar to the 599. It's just as similar to the C6 which was out before the 599. The use of round tail lights would hardly be a theft from Ferrari given that this is the first Corvette in perhaps ever to not used round/roundish tail lights (the later C4 being rounded squares). The Viper design team would have more cause for complaint except that the Viper came out only a few months earlier and thus it wasn't long enough for the Corvette team to steal the design.

    Late C1s didn't have round taillights, did they?

    Oh no i'm not saying that Chevy would've stolen the round taillight design from Ferrari, Corvettes kinda have the trademark of round taillights since the C3 (C1 and C2 had round taillights too i know but so did every other car on the road at that time) I'm just saying that the 599 has round taillights too and to put round taillights on this car would've made it look even more like the 599.

    If Ferrari would do a redesign and new evolution of the 599 this would basically be the end result. It's got the shape of the 599 and the nose of the F12berlinetta. The Viper has the same nose but the Viper was released close enough to the F12 that it was probably just a coincidence that they had similar fronts and the rest of the Viper didn't look anything like a Ferrari. This car angers me though. They even went red with black rims for the release.

    I think both Ferrari and Corvette should continue with round lights, it is just a major part of the car that is recognizable.
