Corvette to sport Chevy's gold bow-tie?
The Chevrolet gold bow-tie logo may become more prominently placed on the brand's performance offerings in the coming years, according to General Motors Vice President of Design Ed Welburn. Mr. Welburn spoke about the future of Chevrolet design on the weekly Autoline Detroit TV series. Welburn said there will be increasing design synergy across Chevy models, with a common design theme becoming obvious in the coming years.
When host John McElroy pointed out that the gold bow-tie emblem doesn't appear prominently on the Corvette, Welburn responded by saying this is likely to change. "The gold bowtie will be there," he said. "There is a strong siganture grille that we are developing for all Chevys," Welburn explained. "We will depart a bit in the grille area […] but that bowtie will be there on every Chevy."
Traditionally, GM has refrained from putting the Chevy logo on the Corvette because the brand is typically associated with more economical vehicles. GM may now wish to associate the Corvette more closely with Chevy in an effort to improve consumer perception of the brand.

Thanks for the poll, Rob. I have a feeling I know what the out come will be, but it'll be fun to watch.

Instead of raising the esteem of the line as a whole, it will have the opposite effect. It will definitelly lower the perceived value and quality of the Corvette.
Absolutely true. ...And it looks silly, goofy, and worse.

What will they think of next ? The little GM symbol on the new ones, a Chevy logo.. Do buyers not know who makes their Corvette??
It's on every piece of documentation: GM Chevrolet Corvette, it has stickers, labels, heck parts labelled with GM or Chevy.. I give up..

I'm with 6shooter (Dwayne). It IS already there. Anyone into the marque knows the Corvette is a Chevrolet product. I am a fan of the bowtie, but it need not be any more prominent on the Corvette than it already is.
That photoshop version is hideous.
PLEASE don't do that to this wonderful car.
