C7 CorvetteWe're just days away from finally (finally!) being able to drop the full, steaming load of C7 Corvette information, images and video into your collective lap. And yet, the official reveal day is not quite here yet...

Thank the good lord, then, for poorly hidden magazine covers, and more sneaky shots of the new car. A car that is, we read, "The best Corvette design in 50 years" if the front page of Automobile is to be believed. At least from the smoke-engulfed posterior shot that we see here, the C7 does appear to have some very striking design work going on. Bold LED taillamps live in blacked-out surrounds, a crisply angled spoiler accents the high-belted rear end, and the expected quad-tailpipes look to mean serious business. The quarterlight behind the side windows is a bit surprising though, as it seems to be louvered or otherwise obscured in some way.

Look for glossy images of the C7 Chevrolet Corvette of your dreams very soon. In the meantime, tell us what you think of this latest image, in comments.

      Speaking of 50 years, i owned a C2 for 10 years. That Stingray body has never been topped.

      Looks great. It's growing on me fast. I think those quad tips should be replaced by 2 rectangular ones instead. i.e: http://truck.hownd.com/images/image-171-4293-mbrp_inc_s7002304_2005_2007_gmc_corvette_c6_dual_muffler_axle_back_rectangular_tips_photo.jpg

      i think it looks good so far. i dont know what the problem is if the malibu, camaro, and corvette sharing similarities, design language...audi, bmw, do it all the time and for the most part look the same and i barely see anyone complain about it.

          People complain because they think it makes them somehow look 'intelligent and informed' if they 'hate GM - but, it just makes them look like they are clueless 12 year olds!

        So far I'm liking the new styling as I was never a fan of the current corvette. Can't wait to see the full 360 and especially the interior.

      Not sure why so many are fixating on the tailights,they started out single, went to 2 circles, went to squares, then to ovals, then back to circles. Its changed alot over the years. Why do so many fixate on certain aspects and throw out all the other variables. Is it just for the sake of controversy? Ugly design or great design, if you really know Vette history the ONLY brand brand new styling element on this C7 is the addition of the rear 1/4 glass and the upright single projector beam headlight with LED pipes, the rest looks evolutionary 100% Vette. Thankfully, the Vette will now have lighting technology on par with alot of $25K cars on the market today.

      at the moment i think it's too extreme. but i am looking forward to having a look at it at the geneva motor show. i hope it looks better in the metal.

      Why would Automobile have a CGI/Drawing of the new C-7 on the cover? Seems odd that they would be proclaiming it the best design in 50 years but not have a real picture of it. I am sure the rendering is accurate given all of the spy shots seen to date, but I question the magazine cover shot.
