2014 Corvette Stingray

So the newest Corvette was unveiled by GM and I have to say, I'm actually liking what I see so far. In the past, I've had to dismiss the Vette due to the absolute GARBAGE interior. I have, however, envied the performance figures...

What are your reactions to the new styling? Did they nail the interior, finally?

From the outside, I see it kinda like the newer Viper mated with the Aston Martin?!?

(The red version is the C7 Z51 Stingray -- the silver is the C7 base...)

I like it a lot.

I believe most of the new models from US manufacturers released recently are a huge improvement over previous versions. And the improvements are on both exterior and interior.

I especially like the new Jeep STR8. Need to get me one of those.

This is the best looking Corvette, ever. I see a few areas that can be upgraded to improve the looks but this is an EXCELLENT first pass.

I am really impressed with this. Being a C6 Z06 owner, I know the flaws of the corvette very well. While I will never get rid of my C6 Z06 because I have $160,000 wrapped up into it ~ I will find myself in a C7 ZR1 when it comes out. Definitely a homerun by GM.

I like it. Especially the stingray version. The interior looks so much better than the old C6 Corvette but still I wouldn't take it over the M6 Beast!

I don't like driving a car with traction-control lights flashing all the time. It's like having sex in a wetsuit

I always thought bang for the buck vettes are a great deal, if you compare it to a comparable performing true blood sports car they are a good deal. Interiors have gotten better with GM products and the styling of this new vette is a great improvement over previous versions, if I was in the market it would be a serious consideration.

The exterior is defiantly a great job. The interior is still so, so with the usual GM smattering of cheap looking pieces to muck up an otherwise fine design.

Seems too angualar and very busy from a design standpoint, but perhaps that is just me. Couldn't see buying one of these as it too Camaro-like.
