The next-generation Corvette C7 will receive a dramatic new look, revealed in drawings posted on an internet forum. The car will make its public debut at the Detroit motor show.

The illustrations show the C7 will adopt a more technical look at the rear, with a large diffuser-type arrangement in the lower bumper. The iconic quad rear lights will evolve into units evocative of those fitted to the current Camaro.

In profile, the Corvette C7 retains the sweeping glasshouse, but the front end appears to be sleeker. More intricate side vents will be fitted.

The interior retains the Corvette’s trademark cockpit feel, with the controls angled towards the driver, and a high level of equipment will be fitted, including electric seats and a telematics system. A Track Overlay function, which will appear in a centre console-mounted screen, will have the ability to display a track outline with the vehicles position. A g-force meter and a steering angle indicator will also be featured.

A TFT screen will replace much of the current car’s analogue/LCD display. A button beside the steering wheel will operate the electric hood, confirming a convertible version will be offered alongside the coupe.

I'm guessing you've never driven coolmath (or probably even sat in) a Vette, but good to see you feel qualified to comment on the technology.   a10 Tell me how many miniclip cars had a head-up display in 1999 (clue: the answer is zero).  Glad you enjoyed the girlsgogames though.

(P.S. I know the Fabia is nominally Czech, but it's a German car at heart so I thought I'd yepi the HUD challenge a bit fairer....)

These changes are putting the Corvette into a slow death.

It lacks character and originality, like a bad love child of a Ferrari and a Camaro, and meanwhile the Germans and Japanese continue to forge ahead with more compelling, sophisticated, and more desirable sports coupes. 

The interior has changed little from the current dated GM interior. How can a sports car be enjoyed from the driver's seat when it's stuck in the 90's (TFT screens or not)?

Dated interior?? I think not. Why it's even got heated seats, just like the Skoda Fabia I hired in 2001.

You're quite correct, I have never sat in a Corvette. I do however take a wheelie bin out once a week so I feel I am acquainted with a similar level of build quality and chassis development. As for the HUD, it's just a cheap bit of electronic frippery for juveniles who want to pretend they're fighter pilots.
