Default Is C6 a timeless design?

Obviously the exterior lol.

Meaning 2 gens from now people will still think it looks good?

Does the C4 look good? I doubt the C6 will be that bad but there will be a toll to be taken.

I think so, although being the owner of 2 c6's during its run my answer may be a bit biased.

Love my GS C6 but timless? Not sure, but take a look at a 1967 Corvette, now that's timeless.

After owning 2 C5's I couldn't wait to make the move to the C6's.
I think it has the best body style of all the series.

Like the C2s and early C3s, I think the C6s will always look great. They'll also never have to make excuses for their performance.

I think 91+ C4s with the convex rear do look good.

None will ever be timeless like the C2 again.

I love the C6 styling, but I also think the C5 and C3 stylings are both timeless.

Timeless isn't an accurate word in my opinion. It will definitely look great for at least a couple more generations.

In my honest opinion, I believe the C5 was a more timeless design than the C6. I mean, just look at the difference between a C4 and a C5. It was something that changed the whole game. The C6 wasnt near as big of a step in the evolutionary process IMO. The C5 and it looks like the C7 will both be more memorable, and this is even coming from someone who doesn't care for the C7.

Figured this would probably ruffle some feathers, but as a previous owner of a C5 and currently an owner of a C6, I feel like I can at least say so without being unfairly biased.

The C6 will look great for some time, and it is quite sexy. Is it timeless? A resounding "No."

I have to agree. My grey over silver 06 Convertible is beautiful, rich looking, sophisticated, a real sports touring machine.

The C3 is timeless today. I really like the C4 but it isn't timeless. The C5 was always very, very bad and the C7 is horrible. But one day the C3 will lose it's timeless image. C6? Great today, gone tomorrow.

Since the release of the C7....the base model C6 looks already looks dated, and I am not sure it will ever be a timeless being so close in design with the C5. The widebody C6s have the aggressive look to keep it looking young for now, but time will have it's toll on it once the C7 becomes more present on the roads, shows, track, and etc.
