^^That doesn't work.

This is the problem with a name. Because we call it Corvette we have a bunch of fanboys that start dictating what needs to happen with the design.

Hell, the round tails weren't even a part of the original corvette. I want to say 1962? and realistically, I get a very large sense of the original corvette with the front grill opening.

Why would I want to go and buy a new rear bumper, have it installed, and painted to match to have people look at my car and say, "hey, your car looks like the old corvette"

Here, just like Corvette...Fairlady was not always the same looking.
Same goes with Supra, Mustang, Camaro, etc...I guess Porsche 911 does pretty good job keeping the same shape though.

1952 Dantsun Sports DC3


1957 Datsun Sports 1000


1960 Datsun Fairlady 1200


1962 Datsun Fairlady 1500


1965 Datsun Fairlady 1600


1969 Nissan Fairlady Z S30


1978 Nissan Fairlady Z S130


1983 Nissan Fairlady Z Turbo


1989 Nissan Fairlady Z TwinTurbo


2002 Nissan Fairlady Z


2008 Nissan Fairlady Z

I may be a fanboi but I'm not dictating what needs to happen with the design. If I dictated the design it would be a 63 split window body on a c7 drivetrain. It's just different after 53 years of similar taillights. It would be like Porsche getting rid of headlight humps. Early C1 didn't have round lights. C1 pretty much shares nothing in common with the rest of generations. C2/C3/C4/C5/C6 did. This car is called stingray and C2 was when the original stingray started.

People change their wheels and plastidip every surface known to man, I don't think they are dictating what the design should be. Just making it their own.

f40/f50/f430/GTR/Veyron all have 4 round lights in the back so they must be good right timpo?
Spoiler!

I've been a huge corvette fan my whole life... and I really think the new design is crazy nice. the C6 and C7 look are huge upgrades from the C5.

^^Even the C5 is still a pretty car. I think its aged way better than the c4's.

Interior is straight up crap mind you

The C4's the least appealing generation of Corvettes, hands down.

Can do you one better than that.

The Fiero with a corvette body kit.



In all honesty, yes the C4 now looks dated, but at the time it was a revolutionary design. Especially compared to the car it replaced, and the cars available on the market.

I see your Corvettiero, and raise you this Corvette Sedan - offered at $7000 obo on Cardomain.



Seriously, the C4's stunning. I'd proudly own one.

Here's the thing. The C4's a shaven down C3, to my eye. The C3's basic lines are beautiful, so the subdued C4's quite nice, but the visceral side-piped sex appeal of the C3 leaves it seeming lacking. The 205hp of the C4 in comparison to the C3's higher hp numbers only furthers that impression.

The C5, now, that's a revolutionary car. The C5's design's the most radically divergent of the breed, and it set the stage for the C6 and C7.
