It looks like it has some Cadillac concept in it. That Stingray emblem is kinda cool.

I agree that some of the elements are kinda nice, but don't care much for the huge scoops in front and back.  Maybe a little overkill.

This is the car used in the Transformers movie.... I doubt it will ever make production. Most likely it will end up being a Queen tucked away in a corner someplace like Mid America... NCM, Volo, etc....

It is a kewl looking pice of history though.

i was thinking the same thing. i think it would be great if they started producing them for the public as they would be going back to the great designs of corvettes. just my thought.Clap

My thoughts... The C-3 was the last "real and raw" Corvette. My wife has an '86 Pace Car that is a helluva lot more sophisticated than my '78....

I guess that's why so many of us geezers have C5 & C6s.... I am one of the few holdouts in the Nashville Corvette Club.

I think its a great looking car, and I would prob buy one... but the front end reminds me of a dumb face..... change the front head lights and the wideness of the span and she'd be a great car. But honestly this is a collectors piece more than anything, this wouldn't sell say as many as a cobalt. And lastly aerodynamically speaking.... is this honestly a promising aero sound car? I think it might get a it of drag....

Shocked NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
Way too far from the Corvette look we have all grown to loveDead.  They should put another name and emblem on it.  Oh well that is just my opinion.

I like the style, but unfortunately it will never see production. According to Chevrolet it was designed for the 100th anniv. celebration and was never intended to go into production.
 
Let's hope they were WRONG!
