This is the face of the new Corvette. As was the case with the next 'Vette's hind quarters, the fascia has leaked on the cover of a magazine, in this case, Road & Track.

As you can see, a more angular look graces the face of the 2014 Corvette, with a large oblong-hexagon-shaped intake for sucking in as much of the atmosphere as possible, along with sharply defined bulges in the hood and what appear to be LED-ridden headlights. Front and center sits the latest variation of the classic Corvette emblem, just below a slot-shaped hood scoop.

We can't help but draw comparisons to current supercars like the 2013 SRT Viper and Ferrari 599. In any case, we're literally hours away from the car's full reveal, so you won't have to wait much longer for a whole slathering of Corvette-flavored morsels. Until then, cast your gaze upon the face of America's next world-beater.

      I'm sure the folks at SRT are very flattered at the design similarities of the Viper and the Vette. Just like the two cars, each has similarities and differences that their future owners will find appealing. I've seen the Viper in person and no photo can capture the nose of the Viper adequately, it's really smooth and beautiful. The Vette looks good but I'll wait for a personal look before judging. Comparisons of these two super sports cars will be made, but to be fair they are very different beneath the surface and one individuals like can be a dislike for another. Chevy fans will favor the Vette and be very sure they are on target and Viper fans will perfer the DNA of that which is unique to Viper. What is true about both, they represent what is outstanding about American car companies...still. Proud of both.

        It also happens to look like an evolution of the front of the C6R... which predates the new Viper.

        One of the best comments I have read about any topic in a long while... I appreciate it! Well-said, and I agree! Exterior aside, I wonder if the interior got a gorgeous re-work like the new Viper too. If so, we could have a world-class performance car on our hands, for sure!

      Don't care what the obvious people of the world say, I doubt from here until tomorrow that one will ever mistake a Viper with a Corvette and compare the twos styling, let alone a Ferrari. The majority (regular people, not car nuts) will see one thing, the Corvette and know it without briefing. The Viper, still needs an explanation for most. That's the difference.

        The Corvette is 50+ years old whereas the Viper is less than half that old and the Corvette has sold way more but stating that as though that makes one better than the other is like judging talent by album sales.

      I'm going to reserve judgement until I see the entire thing from all angles, but right now my impressions range from like (the front view) to not sure (rear view)....but people saying that the styling borrows from the Viper have no clue about car development. I guess it's possible that GM has a secret alliance with Fiat/Chrysler, or in the short time the Viper has been public GM did a rapid total redesign...but how likely is that? The Vette has been around much longer than the Viper fyi..

      I saw this issue of R&T on friday in a Barnes and Noble. Why didn't you publish the rest of the pictures?

        Seriously. Is AB really going to make me have to google search to see what they should be posting?

      What it looks like is not what I care most about.(I think it looks Great). I am most concerned with the performance of the development of the car. How well did Chevy do in upgrading the interior, engine performance, Chassis Development, in otherwords, How much does this car push the LOFTY ENVELOPE of the current car. Thats what I wanna know, I already like the looks. Looking lioke a Viper Twin from the front is NO BAD THING!

      Seeing a sketch of the rear end and a grainy picture of the front, it's difficult to get the whole picture but I'm liking what I see so far. Can't wait until 7pm tonight.

      When the C7 Corvette is revealed we will see the obvious differences between the two. Also I see references to past Corvettes in the front end more than any Viper similarities. I dont think GM knew and saw the new Viper's top secret design work. GM had the Sting Ray concept to influence this C7 style and it shows.

      I like the front end of this... Rear looks too Camaro-Ish for my taste. So it looks like the viper kinda and? That's not bad it'll make it harder fur customers to choose between Chrysler or GM ha. The headlights are a win, they're modern and stylish.

      This design has been leaked by Jalopnik more than a year ago, probably sketched up and approved a year before that, also. They didn't just go to the auto show last year, took pics of the Viper and then bootlegged it like some of you guys are implying.
