I actually mostly agree that the design is too busy. There are some truly stunning mid-engine concepts in GM’s back catalogue that I wish they had looked to for inspiration. That being said, I still like the way it looks enough that I’d buy one if I had the money.
The design is nice enough, I guess. but it's a bit tacky/busy. It's not particularly original, nor does it seem to visually carry any Vette DNA, which are both major faults. I can't get over that interior strip of buttons. That's just idiotic having a row of similarly sized buttons in a line like that. You can't press the right button without looking directly at the panel.
I really do love this car, and the price is a huge part in that.
I do agree that it's rather mundane and lacks a certain "iconic"-ness that the old vette's had.
If they had kept the rear haunch up instead of bending it down along the tail lights, it would have succeeded more. Now it relies on the spoiler too much.
Absolutely love this angle though:
There's so much potential there to make that back corner really strong and clean, sans spoiler.
It's more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow.
