Corvettes have always looked like pure crap and the latest "sensation" - 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 that was revealed at a Detroit Auto Show is just like all of its predecessors... It doesn't deliver. Looks like crap! That's anything but 2009 design. They should have hired younger designers, not retired senile grandpas whose mind sets are still in 1969...

Yep, looks like piece of crap for sure. Will probably fall apart after 2000 kilometers anyway. I don't understand what all buzz was about. Everyone was pumped and shit about new vette and this is what they got? How is Corvette ZR1 different form previous models? I don't even see any significant difference. Old design was lame and they not only kept it, they've improved on lameness. Pretty disappointing. The engine is probably going to be all buggy and shit rendering this automobile completely useless.

Not much info was released about the 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 as of yet, other than it's gonna have a powerful engine, 6.2 liter with 620 horse power. But if GM were thinking of making a car that will keep the pace with Porsche or Audi R8, then I think they are laughable. FAIL!

Holy crap, chicks are talking cars... You shouldn't even be driving

I agree, new vette ZR1 looks like not much has been done on it.

Personally I have thought the corvette has looked like crap for a long time. The new Camaro though...fix the mirrors and I am sold.

Doesn't strike me at all, but pictures are often misleading. Maybe this car is all about sound and looks were secondary. It'll probably do well with rednecks, but I wouldn't be surprised if 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 was an overall failure for General Motors in the end. Every other car manufacturer has moved on making cars that make you wet instantly, and GM totally fails to deliver that wow. No wander they are no longer #1 producer of automobiles in the world.

All i've heard anout it is the horsepower to weight ratio is supposed to be better than that of a carrera 911.

If it looked as sexy as a 911 I would would give it a second look, but as it is I could care less. Even Ford, who is more known for trucks has a killer super car.

Shelby has better looks than Corvette. I don't think there's any question about that. ZR1 is simply not impressive in any aspect as far as design goes.
