As much as I love the C8, sometimes the design appears awkward. Maybe it's the angle...
of view, or the color or the light, but at times it appears much too short and much too wide with excessive emphasis on the rear section. Up until now, the Corvette silhouette traditionally had a long hood and a short rear deck. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of the C8. The high level of technology and the outstanding performance at its price point are unbeatable. Looking forward to the ZO6.
