Check out the latest renderings of the next-generation 'Vette from Car & Driver. I think the rear is its best side: you can really see a lot of Camaro influence around the taillights. The front just looks kind of blah and probe-like, but I guess Corvettes have looked that way for at least the last two generations. I think Viper did a much better job with styling up front. The new Corvette will get a lot of aluminum and carbon fiber over the ongoing model, as well as direct injection: a first for its iconic pushrod V8, now called the LT1. The base Corvette will now make at least 450 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque. More pics below the jump, via Car & Driver. And stay tuned for the C7's big reveal at the Detroit Auto Show in January!

It looks as if a Ferrari, a Camaro, and a GTR had a kid together..

Ya but a similarity can be seen in most sports cars now a days, there all kind of variations of each other.

Man that thing is gorgeous. I can't wait for it to come out. It would be nice if it looked like the renderings above. The only thing I don't care for is the rear end. It messes up the smooth look of the car. But besides that, i want a C6 anyway and I can't wait for those prices to drop.

If you compare that front 3/4 view with this view of a Ferrari 599 it's crazy how similar they look. http://www.roadandtrack.com/var/ezflow_site/storage_RT_NEW/storage/images/tests/car/2007-ferrari-599-gtb-fiorano-f1/392598-15-eng-US/2007-ferrari-599-gtb-fiorano-f1.jpg

Too Camaro like in that first pic. It's cool. I actually like the current model that is out now better. In all honestly, I'd drive it like I stole it!!!

the camaro like rear is killing me, the rest could grow on me. the c6 style is the best looking in my opinion, i think they should have just made small changes to that

The front looks like a ferrari and lotus mix, the back just looks like complete crap. leave those stupid tail lights on the malibu and come up with something better

The front 3/4 view looks much like a 599 GTB. That's not a bad benchmark. The rear quarters are too high in this rendering. It looks bad ass though. Looking forward to seeing the real thing.

I usually don't like when a company designs a similar look to another car, but this actually works. Front looks Ferrari, side vents look like GTR and rear looks like a Vette with 5th Gen Camaro taillights. Only thing they should change is the side vents, should keep what they have on the C6s. GM seems to amaze me with the Vettes all the time. When you think it couldn't get any better they come out with a better Gen.

The rear just looks out of place, the rest is all flowing and curvy, then the back looks smashed in.

Thank god it's just a rendering. The Ferrari front end influence isn't bad though. Rear end is horrible.

I'll take mine in Blue or Black, and get used to the rear of it cause that's all most people are gonna get to see! I love where this is headed and I really didn't think they could do any better than what they already have, which is pretty damn good......

Mint* The back doesn't bother me. I personally like the camaro style rear. Not to mention it is a chevy... 5 *!

I think the designers was looking at other models and came up with this. It just looks too much like other models
