2014 Chevrolet Corvette Styling

Styling
Corvettes have always been, for better or worse, instantly recognizable. During the second generation, this was a commendation on their dapper look; during the third, it was an indictment of Malaise Era styling and smog regulations. But now, in its seventh generation, the Corvette's look has evolved into a high-tech, vents-and-edges look that may just be as good as the original Sting Ray's, but for the descendants of the Computer Age.

It's hard to take the Corvette in small bites; it works best on an all-or-nothing viewing. Each individual element could be seen as alternately too plain or too over-the-top. But combining them, you get the long, low hood, steeply swept windshield, and bluff rear end that has come to define the Corvette's proportions. At every surface there's a confluence of smooth curves and sharp creases, of planes that intersect and warp. It's a high-tech, almost exotic design theme that somehow still transmits the car's classic DNA.

Inside, the 2014 Stingray's look has been upgraded as much as its feel. No longer the plastic DIY-kit cabin of the previous Corvette, the Stingray's interior is fully wrapped, even in its most basic form, and can grow into true luxury-level accommodations in its higher trims. Driver-focused and simple with a high-tech touch, the shape of the center stack and instrument panel make it clear that the Corvette Stingray is all about performance--but not at the cost of modern conveniences.

Sharp and edgy, the new Stingray takes Corvette themes into the 21st century.
