Another Trinity Designs animation. You notice Trinity uses Missouri plates in the videos and photos that is because they are in Lees Summit Mo.

Damn... that makes the C6 feel pretty old. Much closer resemblance between the C5/C6 than the C6/C7

LT1 430hp close to current base engine

Base model only for 2014, supercharged 2015

LT4 586hp 2015

7 speed manual - reverse is far right and down

Targa

Quarter windows fixed

Back hatch opens

Heated and cooled seats

Although I do know quality and materials for interior are apparently "best ever "
IMO it is far better than C6, maybe not Cadillac

Just saw black with red stitching

Center stack in interior similar to current but vertical passenger grab handle just to right of Nav unit.

Cluster has large flat screen about 4" high by 6.5" wide centered in middle. Speedo on left side of flat screen (real speedo, not a digital graphic one), on right side of flat screen is fuel gauge upper right , above temp gauge.

Speedo gauge on left like a reverse capital "D" and the right side cluster looks like a capital "D".

DIC is outstanding and Nav Bluetooth is better than Ford Sync.

Steering wheel flat bottom F1 'style

Parking break handle is non existent as far as I can see but looks like it is a switch in center console like a window switch.... Maybe electronic. Just to right of ride control selector. Not sure how it works..

Ride control selector is in same place

Convertible up and down button in same place

LED ambient lighting
LED ambient lighting is sweet.

Back up camera

9 speaker Bose with subwoofer in trunk.
Wireless connection to iPod and some type of charge pad

Cool Stingray logo on fenders.....
Not the script from the past, but an actual emblem of a stylized stingray

Big front grill opening has a middle horizontal bar the color of the paint

Hood vents I saw were black

Crossed flag logo more "V" shaped

Rear bumper "CORVETTE" lettering is not the same color as car

Exhaust improved, dual note exhaust. Tips look exactly like C6

Rear end is noticeably thinner.

Rear taillights do resemble Camaro/ Malibu but VERY angry looking.
They are aware of uproar on tailights and said, " they bitched about fixed headlights on C6 and then got used to it, it will be same with taillights.

BU lights are those thin vertical lights at the bottoms/side of the bumper

Thinner tires are weird when I compare to my '13 427


New from Sept 9:


2014 will be lightest modern corvette in history

No AWD

Vert tunk area same as C6 with slight changes to storage bins

Vette team surprised how good latest Jaloponik renderings are


New from Sept 22, new thread here:

http://forums.corvetteforum.com/c7-g...more-info.html

tires...P285/30ZR19 frt, P235/25ZR20 rear

Front park assist.

Coupe removable roof with optional carbon fibre.

2015 lt4 will be upgrade of camaro zl1 with more hp

Dash similar setup to like xts with cue electronics system.

The supercharged lt4 is a 2015 thing.

hearing that waiting for 2015 is advisable with engineering tweaks etc

Quarter windows are fixed, you can see through quarter windows.

Optional seats, memory, cool, heat, hi performance Recaro.......definitely options

Hood vent unlikely on Lt1 ... For sure on on lt4

Headlights function similar to caddy ....

A lot of effort to cool brakes and lots of ducts for that purpose

will stream music wirelessly and will have apps on the touchscreen?
Like the caddy

True hotrod of C7 will be 2016


Renderings: (Trust me these are legit.)

That has me more intrigued.

Why does the f***ing LT1 keep getting brought up? It is an over-rated, POS, poor try for a sbc. Let it die.

Brand new small block coming from GM? The Gen V in 2014.

Forget the fenders and seats...let's see the new mouse!

With a steady stream of leaked renderings and spy shots of late, people are seemingly pretty fired up about this next-generation, C7 Chevrolet Corvette. Perhaps you've noticed?

Word out today will do nothing but add fuel to that enthusiast fire, as the Vette faithful have delivered what is believed to be a very accurate rendering of the rear portion of the C7. The new car would appear to have P-shaped taillights that borrow heavily from the Chevy Camaro, those being a huge departure from the traditional round units usually sported by the Corvette. The rear lighting seen here is accented by a black surround that gives it the units a "mascara" effect that we're not entirely comfortable with on America's finest sports car.

Also visible here is an appropriate fastback shape that seems to end neatly in an extended rear lip spoiler. In all, the rendering shows a snippet of a car that, while nothing like the Corvette of the now, seems set to take the marque on a big leap forward.

The best part of it all: Autoblog's insider sources tell us that what we're seeing is, in fact, very close to what we're going to get. A bit of spoiler height here and a vent there may be out of size, but by and large, this rendering represents the reality of the next Chevrolet Corvette's terminus.

Make your voice heard tell us what you think of this as the rump for the new Vette in Comments.

I wish they stayed closer to the two dual tailights that they have had. These look a lot more like the camaro.

looks like that guy took down the other pics, my copied photo links are dead now.

I really hope the spoiler doesn't look like that last pic

+1

In the silver rendering, it looks kind of like a cross between a cts coupe and camaro.

Also, agreed on the rear lamps, too similar to the camaro.

I really thought they were going to elevate the Corvette design... the C6 was close but needed more refinement. This new design is cartoonish... people wanted a better interior but I think most assumed it was still going into a beautiful exterior.

The LT-1 moniker first appeared in 1970. I don't see why they can't bring it back every 20 years or so.

More dramatic than I thought they would go. Right now I am not sure if I love it or hate it.

I agree... I don't see that rear bumper being a production piece, but I like the way it is coming together.

I think the production team from the Transformer movie series had a hand in design.

My thoughts exactly I love it and hate it. The taillights look stupid with the plastic comma looking thing.
