    The rear clip has many ‘interpretations’
    to choose from. Here are a couple on
    a Ceramic Matrix Gray color scheme:

    Re: New mid engine Corvette. July 18th.

    I have always been an admirer of the Corvette from afar. (I have always needed a truck, and no real funds for a toy).

    As mentioned above, the model went through some real stinker years from the early-80's to 90's. But in whole, that entire era was filled with automotive dung across every make and model in my opinion.

    I think this new 'Vette looks cool as hell.

    Re: New mid engine Corvette. July 18th.

    I'm noticing from these pics shown so far, that I'm not seeing those weird side marker lights they stuck on the fender lips of the last Stingray.

    To me, that looked pretty dumb, didn't like those at all on the car.

    Once saw a prototype mock up of the last Stingray, it had a much nicer looking rear, and then they decided and went with the "Batmobile" look. Looks like that carried over, Ug!

    This one too sort of looks Batmobile-ish. I'm sure there was another I seen.

    something about pictures?

    You bet!
    How about a few
    From the ‘brand new’
    Side of the palette?









    The online configurator is addicting!!

    Ooooh Bob, that middle colour looks interesting . . .

    I dig the Ceramic Matrix Gray too but my favourite so far is the Orange . . .

    Yeah, I've noticed that, a lot of black plastics cluttering up body lines, front and back. Usually on such exotica today, carbon fiber has been the material of choice.

    With that said, I might suspect the best looking color on this car might be all black. Will help camouflage some of that black plastic all over.
