    I think I like it, not that I can afford one. But I'm not sure it looks Stingray-ish enough to carry the Stingray name.

    Methinks four exhaust tips is excessive. But otherwise I would drive it. Actually I kind of like it. The pictures make the rear look a little tall, but that may not be as pronounced in person.

    I was thinking it had a Ferrari look to it also.

    Front- dont care for it too much
    Side and back views though? :drool:
    And the red interior is a bit too much. If the interior were all black I'd really like it.

And some other crap
    The ass end looks like it has a widebody kit and the front looks typical vette (narrower) size, which just looks odd from at least the head on shots. They say they used narrower tires than the current model, which makes it even odder that the ass end is so wide. Also like metioned the ass end looks tall as well.

    I would have to see one in person but I don't know. I also think they got a little carried away with all the vents here and there.

    To me it looks like a Vette, Camaro and a GTR had a 3 way and this was their offspring.

    Like I said I would have to see it in person though. Vehicles usually look better in person.

    Apparently its a brand new engine but same displacement. LT1 is the designation.

    I'm not a fan of the back. The rest of the car is gorgeous though and I've never really been a huge Vette fan.

    Touche, sir. I never really noticed the previous generation's. I think it is a size thing. Or maybe the gap between. The C7 looks like someone welded four coffee cans to the rear end (think import), vs the C5 and C6 that look more like dual exhaust with split tips. The C4 had the weird flat tips that I never liked.

    Don't get me wrong, I can't wait to see one in person because I think I like it. In fact I may finally be in a position in my life that one of these may find its way into my garage! (although my wife says it has to be red...blah)
