with the sales on it the 13K range we will be lucky if the corvette survives. i don't think GM can afford to do a C-7 with this kinds of sales.

ummm....

Loks like a C6 with TransAM nose and C3 fenders. I'll pass.

A bit better, but now it's a C6 with Ferarri nose, Audi DRL's, and a Jaguar rear.

If those are my choices, I think I'd get a loaded Grand Sport C6 during the final year of production laugh

I like the hidden headlights on the orange one. But the yellow one does look like a Ferrari custom. At least they're not talkin V6!

I'm partial to the yellow one, but would like it more with pop up, or clam shell, headlights.

I sure hope chevy doesn't screw this up, the orange looks a little to retro for me. The yellow is definitely a little Euro influenced, but that might not be a bad thing.
