I know other people are, but to me it the car should have been called a Firebird. In particular the hockey stick shaped rear lights have nothing in common with Corvette heritage, and the revised angle of the crossed flag insignia looks like (to me) wings.
Based on this portion of an automotive article, I am not the only one.
"Chevrolet Corvette: 215-Day Supply
Delivering as much as 650 horsepower, the seventh-generation of Chevrolet’s iconic sports car is the finest Corvette ever created. So why are so many piling up on dealer lots? “I think its overconfidence,” Lindland said. “I think we’re getting into an issue where younger people don’t have the money to buy it, nor the desire to buy it, whereas older people who can relate to it can’t justify the cost. It’s a vacation car.” In other words, value, a key Chevrolet trait, has gone missing."
BTW - did you know it is possible to fit two folding walkers into the Corvette's cargo area? Just go to any Corvette show and watch the owners of the latest models.
