Hello Fanatics: Certainly,having opinion is allowed,right! I think one needs to keep in mind that when GM designs a car,especially the "Halo Corvette" for their chevrolet brand they have a timed journey of designs that will be introduced,that lead to a final and hopefully accepted design by their loyal buyers,first and foremost.I respect the consideration they gave to changing the geometry of the taillights and frankly,in my judgement their choice was in harmony with the end overall body design.Tail lites wern't a objection to me as much as I thought the cockpit sucked,imo,looks like a freaking bunched up glob of stuff?
Don't quite know how to describe it,looking from picures only now,it may look better in person,but I doubt it. It looks like too large of furniture in a small room,there I think that is my impression for what its worth.I like a cockpit that has somewhat of sysmetrotcal balance to it. Take for insistance,the 63-67 stingray cockpit.Identifying two seperate domains at the same time each resembling one another in a cool and clean design.I know the advent of airbags will influence the design to a degree,but I still believe they could have done a better job in this area.It's true they didn't call me for my opinion,however,I consider my taste in cars and their design a fine art and take pleasure admiring a master piece of design,which in many respects the corvette designers have ,IMO,always strived to achieve and maintain to their predecessor,initial model introductees.The likes of,1954,1956,1958,1961,1963,1968 and so on,you get my point.
This 2014 introduction is phase one of what I believe will be the evolution of the real objective and that is the concept coupe. I saw some terrible thoughts for design leading up to the stingray cpe and they were flat ass ugly.So all in all I think this 2014 exterior design is a handsome car,heading to
a ultimate design that will be consumer accepted, hopefully,by the time GM introduces
the stingray concept coupe,similiar to this design.I think it was too bold at first to get the current corvette buyer to leap for such a radical change from the more conservative or traditional design of the last decade.One mans opinion only. Keep it real>>>> Here's a good looking cockpit!
