    Corvette C7

    It will be introduced tomorrow. I am little bit supriesed that nobody posted about it here. Had a coffe this morning with my P source and he told me that new C7 is amazing car(he even show me few press pics on his phone that I can not post here).

    Few pics are already onthe web since some US based car mags heve C7 on front of thier next month issues,

    Personally, I like new C7 a lot.

    Re: Corvette C7

    Yeah, I was surprised there was no mention of it either. I think maybe there are just more Europeans on here than Americas. I'm excited to see it after being let down by the Viper. I will probably never own a Corvette if living in the US because they are just too common. I would probably consider one if living in Europe though.

    No doubt the C7 will usher in another generation of Corvettes that wipe the floor with exotics 2-3x its price. I've seen the leaked pictures, but I really need to see the real photos to draw a conclusion on looks. Also need to see the interior.

    I heard somewhere the standard model is 450hp/450tq and 0-60 in less 4s. I have a feeling this car is going to put most sports cars and even exotics to shame, all while getting 25-30 mpg.

    Is this picture close to the press pics you saw Kreso? corvette.PNG

    Re: Corvette C7

    I've seen some pics as well and I really like what I've seen. blush

    IMO the new C7 will be a big step forward regarding desing, the only thing I'm not so sure of is the quad exhaust system, which looks (too) massive. And the interior design of course, which is yet not known, but which hasn't been a highlight in Corvette design over the past decades.

    Re: Corvette C7

    The interior is what concerns me the most


    Re: Corvette C7

    GM has underperformed on so many levels and for so long, one does not have high expectations for this car either. The car company of the Volt and the Malibu Eco cannot suddenly produce a world beating product. 


    Re: Corvette C7

    rhino, real C7 looks better.

    BTW, interior is the best so far in any Corvette. Interior gimmicks are mixture of Ferrari and Porache influences.

    What I like the most is what my P source told me: C7 is very fast on the Ring. With base engine that thing can do 7.3Xmin...


    Re: Corvette C7

    I have read that Corvette engineers have long recognized the poor interior and the C7 goes a long way in corrected the problem. Apparently, GM is also providing options for substantially upgraded interior.

    The car will be a beast. For the money, even the GTR will not match it.

    The same rhetoric expounded with the release of every future generation.  Given the number of botched product launches made by the NEW GM, why would anyone expect change?  


    Re: Corvette C7

    From a performance standpoint previous models have excelled though not without quality issues. GM is beginning to recognize that the Corvette can add substantially to their bottom line and making it more attractive to the segment now buying European sport cars is good for business.

    Re: Corvette C7

    I will look forward to reading the review of your new C7 Corvette soon.  


    Re: Corvette C7

    Meh, this design is pretty poor to me. The front is just Viper, the side A-pillar too much GTR and the rear just cartoonish to me. The interior will be interesting, hopefully good for once.


    Re: Corvette C7

    That car and driver picture looks like shit. Pass.


    Re: Corvette C7

    It looks a little bit too bisy at the back imo.

    Re: Corvette C7

    It looks like a car that was designed in 2005 to be a 2008 model. Its design elements look like they borrowed body parts from a Cadillac CTR, a Ferrari 599 and then melted them into something that already looks...... dated. 

    The only real leap forward in its performance will likely be due to the recent advances made in tire compound technology. Any change to the interior can only be good, the rest of it will be probably be just another iteration of a Corvette, replete with  foggy steering feel, same bad handling on wet roads and that lack of feeling of being made from one block of something goos, like metal.  Instead its just a great engine mounted into something made of fiberglass resin and bolted onto ladder frame.

    Price hike, yes. Improved traction, no. Likely just another new Corvette and not really a better car.


    Re: Corvette C7

    looks like a Ferrari wannabee

    Re: Corvette C7

    A little over four hours to go. I wasn't very interested until I found out it was so close. Funny how these media events really can generate interest (at least for a few hours).



    Re: Corvette C7

    Smiley Nice find.

    Re: Corvette C7

    Official Title: Corvette Stingray
    New Base LT 1 engine: 450hp / 450tq
    New interior with much higher levels of materials and appointment. (No longer looks and feels like a Super Cobalt).













    Re: Corvette C7

    Still one of the worst looking steering wheels in the businessangry


    Re: Corvette C7

    2014-Chevrolet-Corvette-048.jpgIt looks very unfinished from this angle.

    Re: Corvette C7

    Very interesting design. I like it a lot, except for the overdone exhaust, and perhaps the rear lights too. 

    If the materials inside are decent, I might consider a Corvette, for once.

     


    Re: Corvette C7

    It's strange in some pics I really like it and then in others I don't like it at all. Also seems color is going to be very important for this design, the grey car look world better than the red one. Overall I think its a cool car, it just doesn't make me want it as much as other design out there do.
