C7 looks better than last Square Tail light Vette

Don't you think the C7 rear end looks better than the Corvette with square taillights?

I wish they could have been a bit more rounded at least... I'm all for changing things up but I think they went a little too far. It too closely resembles the Camaro tail lamps. I think Gen6 camaro when I see that rear end, not corvette.

I agree. I think they hit a home run with this design...

Those centered quad pipes mean serious business too.

I agree 100% the whole car looks that way. The C6 Z06 is like a body builder before a show, and the Stingray is like a body builder leaned out showing all muscle and ready to FSU! :rockon:

I agree HEAVILY with this, I didn't/don't like how the back of the C6 looked like it had a hillbilly gap tooth look between the four exhaust tips. :p

Am I the only one that thinks the quad exhaust should have squared off tips?

Yup I thought the same... well at least the aftermarket will take care of that.

the exhaust should have 2 squares, kinda like the camaro rs body kid instead of round circles, fill the gaps.

Absolutely a winner from head to toe.

Ed Wilburn's patience is wearing thin with the tail light issue as evident in a recent interview at the Amelia Island event. And who could blame him if he went nuts and told someone '...ya gotta be kidding me, right?'

Anybody rather have this?

i don't think it's just the taillights. i don't mind them . the overall look isn't smooth as i would like. i don't think it goes with the front end. but we'll see over time.

The tail light issue will soon die when we can actually see the car in person. The three-element design doesn't really come through in pictures. I think it will be the distinguishing mark when seeing the C7 from a distance. We all know and love the C5/6 from the rear view. Stingray won't disappoint.

When I saw it in person, all notions or conjectures of even slight disapprovals went out by the wayside. MHO.

Round lamps look terrible on a car with angular character lines. End of story.

I LOVE the C7 'vette tail lights.

Not so much the Z/28. Angular > Curvy IMHO.
