    I like the design. Lots of lines. Only issue for me visually is the tailpipes. Looks sort of awkward with those 4 tips bunched together like that. I would have favored a boxy shaped exhaust to match the rear like the one on the Aventador. Got rid of the round tail lights, then should have gotten rid of the round exhaust too.


    I'm pretty sure that is the angle that most of us will be viewing once this hits the streets!

    Not that I could buy one, but I do not like this latest look. If they brought back the 1963 Corvette look with modern mechanicals, they wouldn't be able to keep up with demand. I hope Ford doesn't screw the pooch with the Mustang redesign like GM apparently has done with the Corvette.

    I don't know what I dislike the most about the back end...the lose of the traditional taillights, the bunched up quad exhaust that now doesn't match the tails, or the fact that half of it looks like cheap unfinished plastic.

    I think the answer is that I dislike it all working in concert. Or rather, not working in concert.

    The rest of the car makes me think Ferrari, which ordinarily is not a bad thing, but for a car with as much history as the vette...

    If the next Nissan Z car came out looking very similar to a 911...would it still be a Z car?

    I think we have come to an era where the generation of people designing have been saturated with the wrong media. Whoever put that rear together watched too much transformers.

    The C2 on the other hand has a real classic elegance - I'm not sure what the actual inspiration was but I see this -

    No thanks...

    I see Viper, Ford GT, Camaro, CTS, and a little bit of Corvette. To much of a mashup for me.

    I like the Targa top...but the rest of it honestly is just "meh" to me.
