It looks alright. It certainly would be a considerable change from the previous generation (I guess about as much as C3 to C4). I do wish they did like Porsche did with the 911 and just kept modifying the C2 style. They could have made this another car without the corvette name, but I suppose then they wouldn't sell as many.
The interior has bothered me for the past couple generations, so it would be nice to see an improvement in that area.
