Corvette Exterior Design Manager Kirk Bennion says the team had five goals when they began work on the 2014 Corvette Stingray. He says working on developing a Corvette is a "special deal ... and we work on it as much as we can and as hard as we can." Delve more into Kirk's passion by checking out the video.

I could have looked past the C7's ugliness if it had AWD, DCT, or AT LEAST forced induction on the base model.

The C7 is a FAIL in every aspect, and not worth trading my C6s.

AWD or even an AWD option, I know some hardcore corvette guys would be quite pissed if the Corvette was only AWD.

Would be nice to have an "American-Audi-R8"

Those Corvette owners who would be pissed at an AWD option can kiss my a$$ and taste my boot.
I can see why though.

In all honestly as pro-AWD as I am, the Corvette is legendary, it's Chevy's flagship vehicle, and sticking to it's roots and keeping it RWD is a good thing to do, just like how it's been since inception with the C1. So a RWD Corvette is needed. But of course it NEEDS to keep up with the times, it's slowly falling behind, and AWD option is key to it's success.

I doubt an AWD option will ever become available on the C7 Corvette, might have to wait for the C8. By then Chevy should start thinking about making the Corvette even more supercar-like

At this rate, by the time the C8 comes, I will be done with GM.
GM needs a V8 performance car with AWD, and preferably DCT.....NOW.
If they don't offer one SOON, I will be done with GM for good.

I can rebuild the engines and transmissions in my C6s for the rest of my life.
And, the finished product will blown anything GM will sell off the road.
