Corvette Designer Shows his Work

Video

The 2014 Corvette Stingray is a more stylized departure from its immediate predecessor and its chief designer couldn't be more proud of the result.

You’ve seen it inside and out from the few images GM has released. Some of you may have even been able to get a one-on-one look at it in Detroit, New York or even Geneva. Whether it appeals to you or not, you have to admit that the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray represents a radical departure from Vettes past. Performance capabilities aside, when it comes to high-performance sportscars, form (i.e. design) is just as important as function (speed).

So when it came to penning the new C7 Corvette, its chief designer went all out in combining classic looks with dramatic new styling traits, such as those angled-off taillights that replaced the old round units. But let the man himself explain his five design goals in the video below.
