I looks like a cross between a Mazda and a dogde viper don't you think?

Only the lights and wheels.

The rest actually looks a bit like Reeves Callaway's take on the C5:

Geez, that vette looks like a hillbilly with glasses and buckteeth. Basically a warmed over C5 with the most uninspiring front end design in sports car history.

Quite probably one of the top ten most ugly cars of the past year. The old one couldn't exactly be called "pretty", but... oh yanks can't build sports cars!! They just CAN'T!!

The picture is an artist's rendition of what it might look like.

The new one is just too clinical, compared to this classic:

Ah yes, but even the Stingray was/is pretty awful to drive. Beautiful cars though. Unlike that "thing" posted above. Oh no, I just scrolled up to look at it again!! Christ, it's hideous, it really is!!

I wouldn't even credit it with hideousness, it's just bland generic nothingness. Compare that with the new mustang, I suspect GM are going to be on the wrong end of an ar$e kicking.

Corvette always get sbashed about when a 'new' model comes out. But face it, every vette is arguably more striking than the out going model, I love the Z06 absolute cool, and the regualar hatchback version is my fave...The new vette will be a stunner, it won't look like the artist rendition close but it couldn't

How big are the wheels there? I don't put much faith in artist's drawings of what it may look like.
