    My problem with it is it retains way too many visual cues from the past. GM has to make it look like a corvette or they're afraid it won't sell.



    But you don't have the same problem with the 911?

    I think the Corvette body has too much going on. The pointed front bumper conflicts with the arch of the front fenders, the ribbing on the hood, the complex situation of bends on the side panels, the "baby diaper" rear end. The side view looks like the car is sagging in the middle.

    It's like the designers are afraid to drop visual elements, they just retain them over the years, they're afraid to _simplify_ the car otherwise it will lose appeal.

    I dunno..., I'm struggling. I _WANT_ to like the looks of the vette. I just can't get past the lack of simplicity.

    Like this ordinary extremely popular bathroom hardware. To sell and have mass appeal it's gotta be dumbed-down and made "special" by adding more confusing ornamentation.

    Re: I saw the ZR-1

    Ferrari is cleaner, has much more coherent styling. Corvette should _simplify_ but might lose sales.

    IMO of course. See below:
