Have y'all seen the new Corvette!!!!

2014 Corvette...and the "Stingray" name is back!

Holy crap this car is awesome!!!

http://1975129.r.msn.com/?ld=6vtIEYW...bcorvette+2014

If I wasn't completing a new home...my order would be in. Serious.
Between 1996 and 2010, I had 5 Corvettes (all new exept the 1971 LT-1)...

I've been thinkin' about a 911...but I do like the new Vette...a lot!

Been announced. Looks nice but the price tag is obviously going to be higher.

Yeah they say new Vette, yadaya, but only give it 12 more horsepower. That's not too impressive to me.

are you freakin' kidding?

maybe during a model run when they tweek the dash...add a few HP...new wheels...and up the price a grand...

but the differance between the new 2014 and the C6 is night & day...as was the C6 and C5...and the C4 was so far from the old Stingray platform ('68-'83) it was mind blowing.

I dont think the exterior is that much different...Inside appears more refined. The track numbers are slightly better, but not a huge leap. It is something new, something different.

Everything except the backend is beautiful. Taillights look too much like a Camaro's. With that said I'd still love to have one. When the Z06 and Zr1 versions come out, this is going to one beast of a car.

I got to see this special edition model a few days ago. I'm assuming its a 2013. It looked real nice on the outside but I wasnt very impressed with the interior...it was pretty basic honestly but I've never been a big Corvette fan to begin with. I think Vettes are for the older crowd, haha but their still nice cars.

It's not so much about horsepower as it is refinement and evolution. The 2014 C7 Stingray has *tons* more technology than the C6, and uses more lightweight materials to produce improve performance without needing much more power. Obviously it is not rewriting the book on automotive technology (finally a nav system hahaha), but it is rewriting the book for Corvette, which has always been more or less a sledgehammer of sports cars. Now it is sophisticated, advanced, and truly world-class... especially the interior, which for decades has been screaming for more attention. I love the new design, can you tell? They put a great deal of effort and attention into the design and I am proud to be 'merican.

This. The interior looks so much better compared to the C6. The seats were always a negative talking point for the critics. Looks like Chevy has addressed this along with everything else. The price is going to be the defining pitfall, with the outgoing C6 Z06 being over 100k. But for people that can afford it, it truly is a world-beater with price factored in with performance.
