I'm sure those seeking little more than visual drama and a departure from slavish adherence to previous Corvette design traits will be quite pleased. However, more discerning eyes might discern a less well integrated and thought out overall design, especially in the detailing, than they might have hoped.

Over all, a good to design that will get the job done but falls a bit short of greatness.
I agree. There are a lot of individually cool design things going on, but when everything is put together, it looks off. The Camaro rear is the worst bit.

The new Viper on the other hand.... my god
