    These look the "same"? I guess they both have 4 wheels, a windshield and are both yellow.

    There is no doubt the C7 is a superior car over the previous generations, but it will never look better. Looks like a video game car.

    Disagree, you can clearly see that the C7 styling is a descendent of the C5. They just reduced the jellybean look. It's not like 55 vs. 65, more like 55 vs. 57.

    At least no one disagreed with my Toyota comment.

    There's more similarity between the C7 and a typical japanese sports car than between the C7 and an older Corvette! Yes, it's 'iterating'... towards being a japanese sports car!

    You see it like I do.

    And the C8 photos I looked at today remind me of an MR2.
