New Corvette Stingray looks like...

Is it just me, or does the new 2014 Stingray Corvette look like the older Viper?

Looks more like a new Ferrari...

I kinda like it. A lot.

In a twisted way I hope someone wrecks one so I can get the engine.

I was watching a YouTube video yesterday and had the exact same thought! I also was thinking the front has a Ferrari look about it - F12 Berlinetta. Looks real good!

Re: New Corvette Stingray looks like...

I think they did a good job on it, I actually like this car. I would have to see it in person, but from the pictures I've seen it's a good looking car.

Re: New Corvette Stingray looks like...

Styling-wise i think it's a miss and has been a miss since 97.

But the average corvette buyer doesn't care about looks---the corvette has a devoted following. So, i guess from a marketing point of view styling doesn't matter.

i think gm needs a serious change in the styling department.

Re: New Corvette Stingray looks like...

Looks like it has the new Camaro Tail Lights on it to me.

I like the interior.

Re: New Corvette Stingray looks like...

I was sorta surprised they didn't finally go mid-engine and make it look like the European super cars.

Re: New Corvette Stingray looks like...

Oh maaaaan,, I had it cut and was ready to paste it here on Bench Racing but you guys beat me to it. Maybe I'm stuck in the sixties (or the 70's&80's) but that thing is a ringer for our Camaro's. It matches up from tail panel, to the 'coke bottle' doors to the hood. Stunning.

Re: New Corvette Stingray looks like...

The new stingray and new camaro both have a front end that seems to smile like the chevron ad cars or the carx on the movie cars. Maybe GM is smiling over the goverment money
