A member of our local club just sent me pics of the 2011, if this how it will be produced it will be awesome. Any clue when the 2011 will be available and whats the general concensus from you guys that are in the now? If I can figure out how to paste the pics I'll post them.

I'm not at home now to get the pics, I'll try later but the pics reminded me of the old sting rays, very curvy fenders and rear end. I'll try to get the pics posted.

Don't really care for the looks but concepts are frequently no where near the looks of the final design.

It certainly has edge and I would love to own and drive one. Awesome in black devilsmile
I've been watchin Meecham auctions and a 59 corvette just went for $55k a 66 for 65k. I think I like the old ones more than this bat mobile. The C5 is paid for and kicks ass. Until I hit the lottery I am stickin with tire kickin

Does anyone know when the C7 will be available ? I am reading it will be a 2012 model available in summer 2012. Which would make it a 2013 model (maybe).

I am holding back getting a new Vette until I hear more about the C7. I would think that we should be seeing some spy shots real soon.

I think they usually shut down the plant somewhere around June to convert over to the new models, then have production back up in July/August. 2012 is also what I've seen, but I don't know if it's been officially announced yet. If that is correct, you should be able to order one somewhere around May of 2011 and take delivery starting in August, assuming you can find a dealer with an open allocation for the '12.

Its hard to say but the bankrupcy threw off some time tables...

April 2012 as a best guess for a release of the photos...specs etc...

Stan if your enjoying your present ride ....then hold off.......

Should be the best vette yet....

Anyone else read how the 2011 Grand sport gets the F55 suspension like the ZR1...???

Pretty impressive technology moving through the range..

I would soooooo love to order myself a Grand Sport right now, but my paid-off '07 is still under 50k miles, so it's hard to justify.

I'll definitely be ready for a new car by the time the C7's have been out for a few years thumbsup
