Far more beautiful than any vette made in the past 20 years. I still won't be able to afford one though.

I kinda like it

What I love, though, is the new Viper

Is it me, or have they stolen more than just a few design elements from the Sky?

Here is a link to a walk around of a silver one by Autoweek:

I cannot make up my mind...so far I see too much technology...those idiot lights are going to register on this car...I also see the camaro tail lights incorporated...matter of fact, Chevy has incorporated them in most of their cars now...look at the malibu....Although many will be impressed by the price tag...I did not find it as artsy as our SKY...look at that dash. Not for me. That cockpit and dash are UGLY...not as ugly as the Solstice but....

They keep comparing the looks of the original Stingray...where are the whitewalls on this car.

I am also underwhelmed. Just too much going on with the styling. I mean they are no really solid panels. Every panel has a cut or groove. I am not impressed at all.

Agreed. Artsy, Feminine, Curvy... missing.
Too many lines, facets, angles. And the dash looks like a jet cockpit.
Headlamps lack personality too.
Was expecting something more refined and simpler. Closer to the 2009 concept.

Exactly. It's "over designed", if you will.
Still wouldn't kick her out of bed though!

That car is so ugly...beauty is in the eye of the beholder...perhaps. Our SKY is so much better looking in appearance...

There is something about the front/hood that is weird and kinda ugly looking, but from the front fenders on back I think it's Killer!!
