Editor’s note: We posted this video from our new CorvetteVideos.TV website onto our Facebook page Saturday night. The video generated a lot of comments about the direction of the new Corvettes rear end design so we wanted to share it with our non-facebook friends as well.
For months now, the Internet has been abuzz over the rear end of the seventh-generation Corvette.
Some old-timers have made no secret that they don’t care much for the move away from the traditional round tail lamps that have been on the Corvette since 1963 (though some C4s had rectangular lights and the C5 had ovals).
Tom Peters, design director for the 2014 Corvette Stingray, recently took a few moments to talk with Autoweek to explain his team’s thinking as they designed the rear of the car.
