Meh...I think they hit the nail pretty close to the head with the current design.

Anytime I see a third party rendering of what someone thinks a car should (or will) look like, I'm reminded of former GM global design chief Ed Welburn's comment: "If you look at them, you immediately know why those guys aren't working for GM design."

Hyper-Camaro-ish, I agree, Hot Wheels looking.

Thing is......it's a 4 wheel vehicle, and so ALL the designers are running out of concepts/ideas to make a new update.......

note the sameness of all the rest of the cars.....can't tell one from another at a glance.......

not to brag, but even today a relatively chilly day here in Florida....took the vette out for some common duties.....and got waved at and shouted out in traffic about 4X......in about a total of 1.5 hours total time.....driving time maybe 45 min total....IF that.....

MY supposition is that it's going to be a while before newer Vettes get THAT kind of attention.....which is kind of sad, really....

Goose usually does good work. I'm not sold on his rework above. I'll stick with this one for a bit.

Is that a scuff on the bottom of the quarter panel?

no, the paint is highly reflective and picking up the scratches in the shop floor.
