    I went cruising with my mom in the Cobra last night on Woodward. We spotted a blue car up ahead. She asks - "What's that?". I said it looks like a C8 Corvette! So we eventually catch up to it when traffic slowed and I really was not blown away by the rear of the car. I thought in person it might look better than the photos available online but it doesn't. It honestly looked like a Camaro hybrid. I don't like the look of the exhaust tips either. I am sure with the right color scheme and body color vents the rear will start to look less busy. Perhaps it will grow on me but for now I am not digging the look of the car from the rear.

    Was it because of the Joos?

    I'm not too crazy about the rear either.
    I really don't like the steering wheel and that control strip on the center console. YUK! lol

    My exact feelings. Especially that control strip. Just looks strange in a bad way. The rear end is a big disappointment. Other than that....I like the C8 a lot. On the way home from a great steak dinner, we passed a black C7. Gotta say that I like the styling of the C7 over the C8. Styling, not engineering and features.

    To me, the C8 looks better than the new supra.

    I wonder how much better the rear end would look if they didn't design it to hold 2 golf bags...that's a lot of empty space. To me, the rear does not look proportional to the rest of the car, and that's a direct result of having a trunk.
