What Do You Think Of The New 2014 Corvette Stingray?

Looks nothing like the original. It's nice, but rather generic.

I think it looks brilliant. Better than the C6, but still different enough to look like a clearly new model. I could have wished for a bit more power, but really - 450 hp is enough. I'm particularly excited about the new interior.

 

Just to be clear, I can't actually afford one - but if I can in a year or two, I'll be happier to get one of these than I would have been with a C6.

It doesn't have that classic look. In a few years this design is going to need a facelift.

Looks like a generic mid-expensive car.

What about price?

To me, that is not a Corvette Stingray......these are.

Well, as long as it's not a muscle car, it should perform well enough.

I don't think the price has been officially announced yet.

Like the look if it better than there past couple of generations.

Probably the biggest difference from the old model is the tail-end treatment:

Reminds me more of the Camaro than anything else.

I kinda like it, except for the lack of the split rear window. That's part of what makes it a "stingray."

 

I remember a Stingray concept from a few years back that had the split rear window. It looked much better IMO. This is just a wee bit bland as others have said.

 

The new Viper looks better, too.

I don't like:

Front treatment. The lights are darned ridiculous.
The C1 inspired front grill (though they never say so explicitly, it's there if you look). I liked the clean look better.
The weird semi-splitter elements on the corners of the front.
Hate the back. The round tail lights meant something; getting rid of them is a foolish error. It's like Porsche when they got rid of their round(-ish) headlights with the 996. Eliminates the identity of the vehicle.

I like:

The middle "rib" -- when you look it in profile, it reminds me of the C3's with side pipes a bit.
Pretty much the entire profile is great... I think it's the best part of the car.
Interior's nice, but I probably will never sit in one.
If the performance is as good as they say, that's always a plus.

Conclusion: I'm unlikely to ever own this car (in it's current form) so all this is just internet ramble-tamble.

I'm not sure what to think of it, actually. I saw some of the concept pictures, and I really liked a few of them. Then I saw the actual car yesterday or so, and my first impression wasn't that great. When I got to looking at it more closely, it grew on me a bit, but I'm still undecided. If that makes sense.
