    Chevrolet to fit C7 Corvette with seven-speed manual?

    Ok so what we know so far
    ________________________________________________________
    It's going to be smaller than the current C6 (look how tucked in the wheels are compared to the C6's body)

    7 Speed Manual (wouldn't surprise me if they threw in an extra gear for more MPG's)

    obviously Inspired by a Certain Corvette Transformer (look at the tailpipes) concept only my butt GM

    More fuel efficient {the current vette (base V8) can already rack up 26 mpg's on the highway}

    Front engine/rwd layout (no Mid/rear) as originally considered.

    If only it came in the "We know that the country is in a recession, only pay 20,000 dollars" mode.

    Until the Sting Ray body comes back, Corvettes are dead to me.

    Unless they can produce the Sideswipe-vette, they should just give up. This is fugly and pathetic in comparison.

    It's like some sorry substitute they had Hasbro come up with because Hot Wheels wouldn't let them make their own car.

    Just so you guys know. The prototype is wearing the body of the previous Corvette... The C7 parts are under the skin but you can see the Mechanical's such as the suspension, the 4 tailpipes ala Stingray concept,and the smaller track and wheelbase indicating the Next Corvette will not be 6foot friendly.

    You do realize many Concept Ideas/Styles/and Tech built into Concepts are there for more than eye candy, but there to see how well it would fit, and how well it is received by any possible buyer to the brand. That and Mules, are nothing but that, Mules. They are the next step up from Concept.

    :lolol  It's Chevy who should be ashamed.

    That thing is a visual, and therefore a visceral betrayal of the impossibly awesome stingray concept car they should be making.

    It's like if they had Michelangelo design the prototype, and then went to production with this:
