They shaved ~95lbs, NOT serious weight...


Thats the frame only. CF control arms, they stated the hood weighed less than the previous CF versions due to a new generation of CF, same as the roof.

The magnesium seat frames drop weight if thats the package the purchaser chooses. Wheels have been estimated to drop a lb or 2. Lots of little weight drops are going to add up to quite a bit once its all said and done.

I respect the car as a machine...plenty of achievements there.

I have little for its styling, though. I'm sorry, but it looks like they went to Hot Wheels or a 5-year old to design it. A million sharp lines all over a car that lead the eye nowhere is gaudy...and they ditched the iconic rear tail lights because??????




I have no signiture

It looks like an older Ferrari Maranello. Not really too fond of it right now but Im sure itll grow on me as I see them out on the road.

I am surprised nobody said "Viper called, wants its fascia back" like on Jalopnik lol. I like this car though. Can't wait to see what numbers it puts down. And I wonder how much architecture the 6.2 Vette motor will share with the Silverado/Sierra 6.2. Obviously the Vette motor is gonna put down more HP but I wonder how much of the engine components will be shared.

Since it will be a Gen V SBC, pretty much none

actually WRONG !!! the NEW trucks are getting a 4.3 V6(yes 6cyl , and not the old school small block based motor) , 4.8 , 5.3 , and 6.2 built from the same design as the LT1 new gen motor

Quite nice...and such.

Hoping they keep it priced decent so the normal human can pick one up. I'd like to see it priced for ~75k plus options for the base.

GM already said "if you can afford a Corvette now, you can afford this new one."

Imagine if you've just bought a C6 with it's 90's Grand Prix HUD and horribly pixelated in-dash unit.

God I can't wait to see this Vette's interior as sad as that is, I look forward to that improvement the most.



Re: 2014 Corvette Stingray

I agree... The interior is one of the reasons the c6 never did it for me...

A new grand sport was high on my "list" but the interior just killed it, more so than the whole practicality thing, if you believe that.


That being said, this new model is growing on me, there is just something about the front of the door forward that just looks odd to me.

From everything I have read, a main focus was fixing the interior due to the complaints in the past.

I for one will most likely buy one. I have always loved Vette's and had planned on getting a V coupe this summer, but I find the C7 to be absolutely beautiful and I think it wins out for me. To each their own..

only thing crossing over are 2 parts which are the air filter and the roof latch however the roof latch is also being redesigned so only the air filter is crossing over from parts used from a C6 to a C7 (stingray) model.

450 is the minimum amount and the GM rep also said with the direct injection and flex fuel (E85) that there are measurable gains from just a fuel change.

this new vette is THE only thing GM made that might get me back into the company pending how they look in person, wont go base/convertible however waiting on Z06/ZR1 specs, jeep will be getting moved to summer DD duties or possibly sold, been looking at the new SRT Viper as well or even a 08+ Lambo Gallardo
