General Motors calls it "the most powerful standard Corvette model ever." The Los Angeles Times calls it "an incredibly compelling sports car." CNN calls it "a legit Porsche killer." And in our very own test drive of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, we had to agree that this highly anticipated overhaul of one of the world's most iconic sports cars is a true technological masterpiece. And now, thanks to GM and Chevy, you can see how it was built.

GM has posted a pretty cool video animation that shows the Corvette Stingray being assembled piece by piece, starting with the frame and ending with the body panels. Enjoy the video below and let us know what you think of what might very well be the best Corvette yet.

      There were a lot of interesting similarities to how Lotus designs their cars. That was like watching an Esprit be built-- and even more similar to a DeLorean. Colin Chapman was a genius, and always ahead of his time.

        Laser's sole purpose (so he thinks) is to undermine anything associated with the brand of General Motors. Any article compels him to commentate. What is pathetic is that despite all his effort, GM hasn't sold one less car or made one less dime as a result. They must have rejected him as a janitor at some point in his life. Laser or Loser?

      I just can't look at this car and see something original anymore. The Camaro tail lights, the Ferrari exhaust, headlights, grill and hood cowl. I can't get over it after seeing it.

        I totally agree. Please critique the car without any nationalistic tendencies. Just because it's an American car, i have to love it. It's an amalgam of many GM cars - A Camaro back end, a Ferrari front end and Bat mobile aesthetics. Let's face it, it's a car for high school kids. Why, the tachometer turns CORVETTE above 5000 rpm. C'mon that's just juvenile at best. This car was started as a true American GT car for the American road mannerism...drive slow to show and impress at the press {traffic light}. Don't compete with the European sports cars, create an American sports car.

          Anyone that says it doesn't compete, has never driven it, plain and simple.

        Well, it would be a ladder frame if those weren't tied into the surrounding body work. I've seen very few uni-body cars that don't employ a pair of tubes or rails like that to form the main component of the chassis. Granted, most have the front and rear disconnected from one another, but it's a pretty basic component of most cars.

      If you watch it in reverse it has a happy ending.

      How could this car be considered a super car while retaining the transverse composite leaf springs for suspension? What else, a push rod engine, C'mon! I have nothing against this car other than its obsolete disposition as a modern sports car. Super cars are light, nimble and turn corners. Low -end torque is for cruising and posing which is what this car is all about since its inception. As for those who will get on my case claiming that it is racing in the 24 hr races, well, they are not corvettes, they have a Corvette body and a trellis chassis. Glad GM is trying, however, they're missing the point. I will not buy this car just because it's a bargain. I will pay a few extra and get a real deal.

      Pretty neat, but the animation seems to be missing a few of the most important pieces - such as the engine, transmission, wheels & suspension...
