Nice besides the camaro rear.

I can't wait to see one in person. Overall it's a good design.

Nice going with the Stingray name too!

Front end looks nice but I am not a fan of the rear end. We'll see how much I like it next week in person at the NAIAS.

Also disagree with the rearend, at least the taillights. Overall I like it, can't wait to see what the LT1 really puts down for hp, no way it only has 450 hp.

Not bad. Not sure about the rear end. I'm sure it'll grow on me though.

+1 on the rear appearance. But don't get me wrong, I would buy one in a heartbeat!

I hope in person it looks much better for the rear. I'm more excited I think for the return of the stingray name.

All I have to say is when the C6 came out, I hated it. After seeing it in person, it grew on me and now I think they're badass.

The C7, I like it. The interior is beautiful. That rear end will take some time to grow on me but I know it will.
