Update!

What GM's planning for the C7...
Here's what we know: GM is considering at least three scenarios for the C7, and GM Design is still some time away from boiling down competing proposals (at least five were in the mix at one point) for the car. That means the car, originally planned for the 2011 model year (to coincide with the 100th anniversary of Chevrolet), will likely launch as a 2012 model and may even slip further, depending on how the new CAFE regulations pan out.

1. Evolution, not revolution
An evolutionary car would continue improvements made by the C6 over the C5 and take advantage of emerging technologies for more gains in performance, handling, ride, cost, and, of course, fuel economy.

2. Let's chase Ferrari
GM vice chairman Bob Lutz reportedly has been pushing for a mid-engine C7. Two directions have emerged. The more realistic plan has Chevrolet building only an upmarket, mid-engine Corvette, while the other calls for two models: a conventional front-engine C7 and the mid-engine car and splitting Corvette off from Chevy to make it a prestige brand. Under either plan, the next Corvette will have a radically different design from the current car.

3. The hail Mary play
The worst-case scenario (apart from doing nothing and letting Corvette die in 2020) calls for the C7 to be based off a new version of the Pontiac Solstice/Saturn Sky Kappa architecture.




I like option #2 the best. A mid-engine 'Vette sounds awesome. The purists might scoff at the idea.

It looks almost Aston Martin-esque?
I think the artists there may have forgotten to draw exhausts, lol

Update!

Bob Lutz: Chevy Looking At "Four-Door Corvette" For U.S.
"[T]he thrill of high performance driving is unmatched by anything that doesn't have rear-wheel drive, bags of torque and a nice transmission." That's why "Maximum" Bob Lutz thinks the Holden Commodore could bring the U.S. a "four-door Corvette."

In addition to Reuss's comments yesterday on a new El Camino, Lutz went on to tell The Age "[T]here's a possibility of a premium Chevrolet sedan that would be sold in limited numbers. Think of it as a kind of four-door Corvette"

I think they will just bring back the G8 as a chev, maybe modify the front bar and give it a new name.

The renderings looks hideous.

What is more of a dying market? The 20 year old kid who could over leverage himself with no down payment on a car and 600 dollar a month payments on a Corvette 5 years ago?

or

The old guy who falls into the average buyer for Corvette sales who is suddenly going through a mid-life crisis only to watch his dreams of a Corvette die as the market ****ing tanked last year and now has to use all that extra spending money just to retire?

Both are run on sentences, but both prove a point that no one is buying a 2nd or 3rd car for the next 10 years.

I was scrolling down the thread and thought motor had posted this in the wrong section. I mean.... I opened a thread that said "2013 C7 Corvette". I'm not even a huge fan of the corvette (like em, but like the Z, everyone has one), but this....this is just..... wtf....
