    He can speak for himself, but I have him quoted as saying "It's fine."

    I thought I would hate it. Now I'm trying to decide if it's worth selling everything and eating ramen...

    No. At least for the first production lot. It's still a GM product.

    This morning it has been confirmed that the Corvette will be produced in right-hand-drive for the first time ever, so it’ll be able to be sold in other markets. Holden will be selling them in Australia starting early next year.

    To me this is kinda similar to how Nissan broke the GT-R away from the Skyline family. Corvettes have never (?) been mid engined, so to me this is the Corvette being transformed into something it was probably never meant to be, like the GT-R.

    Both Nissan and Chevrolet should have used different names for these products, in my opinion.

    I'm not too sure about the hard creases and so on in the styling. I'm thinking it'll date really quick.

    I agree they should have tried to go back to the round lights.

    And softer lines...

    The C7 should still be going alongside the C8 as a halo car, under the stand alone Corvette brand. Then in 3 years release the Corvette SUV and print money.

    They should have brought this out, but with the announcement that they were bringing back the Pontiac Fiero nameplate, and discontinuing the Corvette to focus all their efforts on this new Fiero.
