I'm normally a Chrysler guy through and through but I have to say that the new Corvette looks pretty badass. Here's a spy shot that I found on Jalopnik. What do you say - yea or nay?

I dont usually like Corvettes but I do like the old Stingray. I think this new Vette looks pretty awesome, specially after the Z06... really didnt like those :grayno:
I think I'd stop and look at that if it drove by!

I like it! Looks similar to the Nissan GTR though.

I have a Jeep therefore I will never be able to afford a Stingray. My pockets are always empty. :banghead:

Hey now.... I resemble the remark and it's not white, it is silver. When you have a couple of daughters you will understand why we have silver hair too!:gaah:

The Stingray is the best American sports car ever made. I drove an orange '75 Stingray in high school. I no longer feel a want or need for a sports car, but if I got another it would be a Corvette. :yup:

Corvettes have always been awesome. If I had the funds, there would be a ZR1 in my garage! The new design looks pretty snazzy! :thumbsup:

Here's a custom split back from SEMA a few years ago.

Would look awsome on the new one.

:cheesy:I am a Corvette guy (67 & 81 coupes), but first my hair turned gray and then it fell out. Now I'm drivin' a JKU. I'm so conflicted.:crazyeyes:

I have owned and raced several corvettes, the body design on the late models were a love/hate relationship for me. The interiors were especially harsh for the money you would spend on one. It was always about performance for me with corvettes, no greater bang for the buck on the planet :thumb: I truly hope the version that makes it to dealer floors is really close to this.

Hmmmm? Interesting. I wonder what the price point will be if they release it. At what age do I get to buy a midlife crisis car?

Official pics are out now that it's been formally announced. I must say this is one of the first vettes that I've immediately liked.

I'm beyond midlife crisis and a hellufa lot closer to afterlife creases but I'd still love to drive that Vette. Wow!

Hmmm looks nice but I'm more of a Ford guy when it comes to anything that isn't the Wrangler.

Oh man! :grayno:

But I have to say, even wrecked that thing looks bad ass! What is the MSRP on these?

after buying a sports car a while back I realized this thing just isn't practical and only people I see driving one is people with visor caps and bluehairs impressing the ladys that are out for their money ! if that makes you happy well good luck id rather drive a beat up foed:thumb:

Got to disagree here. I'd love nothing more than a nice sports car to add to the collection (and by collection I mean 2 vehicles :cheesy: ). I do not own a visor or have no hair, let alone blue hair...plus my lady already has all my money! :cheesy:

I'd prefer a convertible though. I've been a porsche fan all my life, but something about this stingray is appealing. Maybe it's the ability to actually store some luggage in it (assuming it's like a typical vette).

Regardless, neither is in my budget right now so, like many other cars, it's just a pipe dream at this point. :grayno:

Hmmm...suppose I could have done that. Thanks! That's not as bad as I would have expected. Not sure what a normal vette goes for. But still...too rich for my blood. :naw:
