I’m sure it will look very attractive when it is revealed, so I’m reserving full judgement until Chevrolet releases more flattering pictures in 10 days. This looks like suspiciously like another GM staged leak. Shock, horror it’s awful! And then next week...Wow that’s pretty sweet.
Distorted and a bad angle.
This rendering is pretty close. Looks much better when you can see the rest of the car.
I wish they all could be California squirrels!

Due to the way the photo was taken, there are lots of weird things going on, especially on the very right side of the picture. It looks like we are seeing a little bit of the side DLO, but we should also see more of the flank of the car, but there is a fuzzy yellow element blocking that area. It’s probably the stanchion holding up the yellow chain. If I cover up that little DLO area (as it is very distracting) and focus on the other 90% it actually looks pretty good.

Heck, I like it. With the lighting elements lit up it looks damn good too. Just something we've never seen on the Corvette and we will have to get used to it.
The spoiler looks really funky with it being so thin though.
Saw this earlier this morning, and my only thoughts were . No lighting or camera angles can fit this mess of confusion. I'll reserve final judgement till the reveal, but I've always thought of the Vette as a car that is badass, yet can be sexy in the right configuration. This car looks like a 13 year old boy went wild with drawing out his "dream car". And those taillights... I've never heard anyone say they loved the taillights on the C7 or C6 Camaro. I think it's really going to lose the loyalists who have bought new Corvettes every few years. I think it would be fine as an additional model, but to completely replace an iconic and loved format seems nuts to me. It'll perform very well on the track, I can guarantee that, but the Vette owners I know drag race their Vettes... I don't know of any that actually hit the road courses with them.
To think that we had this perfect design just a few years ago, and now we're at the above....

That first picture quality is just poor and taken at a weird angle. I think it will look good when revealed.
I am disappointed that the old story that C7 and C8 would be produced together turned out not to be true. I think the C7 could have lived on, maybe with an MCE. But if memory serves, was the original thought that the mid-engine C8 would be far more expensive? Isn't it supposed to only bump up about $5K?
