Default Swing and a miss!

Not feeling the looks at all. To many body lines, too square in the back, it looks like it morphed itself from God knows what! The car lost its heritage and iconic features including the tail end and lack of roundness! Don't like it, also they "estimate" 450hp, they don't know? Great release GM!! Thumbs down!!!

I'll keep my C5Z06. I would LOVE the C7 interior and rev-matching downshifts though! I have A4 seats, so the C7 seats aren't a big deal, but great to see they offered something for the track!

Especially don't like the rear end. Too much like a Camaro.

Hate the taillights and all the square lines as well, maybe in person it will make a better impression, but for now I'm not running to the showroom, and again not too impressed with the interior, maybe the materials and quality are better, but the dash is ugly, but I guess in time it will grow on most of us, for now to early render a verdict.

I love it. Chevy needs some similarities between brands and I'll give them the tail lights. I love the fenders and how wide the back end is. WOW. That was a fantastic show.
I can't. Wait to see it kick but at the 24 hours of LeMans!!!!!

Yay, the performance improved. But I cannot approrpriately describe how disappointed I am in the design. I am a die hard GM guy, but the appearance of this car has me scratching my head. I can make a brick go fast, but would you want to own a fast brick? So sad ... I'm so very sad.
