'14 Corvette

Anyone else think this is a terrible detour for the definitive American muscle car?




Looks like they let some of the Cadillac guys get a bit too close to the drafting table. This is an unmitigated disaster.


Can anyone say CTS-V?




Holy disconnect, batman.

Good luck seeing out of the back of it. The more I look at that car, the worse it gets. They were on such a good path with the C6...this is ridiculous.

Die-hard, pinky-ring-wearing Corvette fanatics will flock to Bowling Green to be the first on their block. After then? This car better be an incredible drive, or it will be nailed to the showroom floor.

Considering the average new Corvette buyer age bracket, I am surprised GM didn't do the logical thing and offer a free Handicap sticker fixed somewhere prominent for its clientele. The Vette needed a real rethink, not an over the top restyle with the same FUCKING REAR LEAF SPRING it has almost always had, which as far as I know makes the fucker snap happy when adhesion is exceeded in the rear. Such lack of progressive break away saps driver confidence on public roads.

I thought the C6 tasteful, but it sold like reeking dog shit on a 100 degree day. So GM ran some fucking focus groups (their answer to everything and their biggest weakness) and those car moron human examples were interpreted by auto ignorant executives, thus this is what you get instead of a substantive rethink of the entire Corvette brand.

Never really paid that much attention to it, but considering the general reality of it, I am still going to take that as a compliment and ask you to provide a tongue extender. No offense.
