i like it. the color is like my 50th the back is real retro good job gm

11-17-03, 09:12 AM
if you look at the profile for the guy that posted the pics he has never posted before i'm not saying the pics are not real,but i just think gm gave up to surpress bad info. i think the guy is a gm plant. or just very lucky, besides why wouldn't you go to the big mags first to sell them like nude modonna pics

Link, for those of us who don't go there?

EDIT: Found it myself, don't worry about it.

That is HOT. Wish the ass wasn't so big still, but the whole package is AWESOME looking. Glad I held off on judging the body alone.

Amazing how this comes out just a day after a picture of the 2005 Mustang sent to dealers finds its way onto the internet.

do you think this guy was just lucky(see my posts) it was fun trying to guess i must admit. i think they have a winner!

11-17-03, 10:15 AM

Very nice. Of course I, personally, like the color ;) . Nothing like a magnetic red hue!:D

Looks good......I think we have a winner.

Thanks for the pics, guys!

11-17-03, 10:37 AM
Awesome ! Check out the recessed taillights . The brake roters are drilled too . Are there any more pictures ? Cliff

11-17-03, 11:53 AM
Nice! Looks really grrrreat! Personally, I think it looks even better than what all the spy shots left for the imagination.


11-17-03, 12:05 PM
Awesome profile view. A worth Batmobile.

11-17-03, 12:10 PM

Two exhaust tips? Hmmm.........

The rear fender appears to come down OVER the tire. ???


11-17-03, 12:12 PM
I like it! Would really like to see those headlights though. The color is really awesome.


11-17-03, 12:17 PM
I thought I remembered seeing a quote posted here from a GM excec. saying they were going to do away with the "dust-catching" taillight lips? Looks light the taillights are even more recessed than the C5.......

Maybe the C6 comes with a California Duster in the trunk!:D


I'm guessing that the rear end is hunkered down by ratchet-straps giving the appearance of the rear fenders overhanging the tires. Just my guess.......

11-17-03, 12:19 PM
Unbelieveable, absolutly beautiful !!

Brett, I think your right does look like some overhang. The more I look at the pix the more it looks like they coke-bottled the body a little like the C3s. I personally always really liked that shape. Looks like the front and rear fenders are wider than the middle around the doors. Can't wait for the "offical" picture release.

I think that may be due to being cranked down on the carrier. Doubt it would look like that on the ground.


11-17-03, 12:47 PM
I think you guys are right. Good call. It does appear to be strapped down at the rear. Which is also making the front end rise up a bit, distorting its true profile. My other complaint was that the front end looked too high and blunt, so maybe that is why. I think she will look much better on the ground!


11-17-03, 01:00 PM
That makes me feel better those spy shots were really scaring me!

11-17-03, 02:15 PM

I really like the new rims.

11-17-03, 02:28 PM
I personally think it is beautiful. I am going to get try and put an order in today with a Dealership out here. Rocketblock what do you think of it?

11-17-03, 03:48 PM
Yeah, it's gorgeous! They really did a nice job with it. Though I'm anxious to see the final front end and intake area, I am sold. I've been debating about a 2004 Commerative edition or waiting for the C6. Yup, I'm waiting!

Not sure about the "low" rear end you guys are referring to. When you tie down a car to a carrier, do you tie it down to the frame or body? Maybe it's just an illusion due to the blackness of the wheel wells and tires.

I like it.

11-17-03, 04:33 PM
I'm really digging the looks of this car. I can't wait to see the whole thing, on the ground and ready to roll. Now we need to get some info on that new and improved interior.

So far my plan to replace my C4 vert with a C6 is going nicely. I can't wait to see this thing in a drop top. :D


11-17-03, 05:16 PM
Damn that looks nice!!!! it has that Aston Martin Vanquish look and hopefully not the price!!! I like It!!!!!!!

11-17-03, 05:51 PM
Baised on those shots, I take back all the comments I made about the C6 looking like an import. The car looks amazing, no doubt it's a Corvette. :D


11-17-03, 05:58 PM
Messed around with the Hue and Saturation a little. Came up with some new colors.

Well, now that you've asked!!! I think it is a nice evolution from the C5 and wont leave the C5 owners out there in the ozone. The C5 was a design home run and they knew enough not to mess with it too much. I think it's a nice next generation Corvette with some great mechanical improvements. :beer :)

This does look a lot better. Hopefully it will look as good or better when it is on the ground, at right ride height etc. One think I do like is that the design seems to all blend together, unlike the c5, and I like the way the rear deck line seems to angle back a bit (like the early c4s)--it gives the design a more aggressive look. Hopefully it will have round tailights, not the weird ovals of later c4s and c5s. I also like the wheels---while I would prefer the spokes to be a bit wider, these wheels have a toughness to them that Corvette wheels have been lacking for years. I would like to see them in either a gray color, or painted flat black.

See, Rocket has much more tact than me. Ross used to make me look like a puddycat.

11-17-03, 08:52 PM
I think I'm in LOVE! :cu


11-18-03, 01:52 PM
awesome.....can't wait to see all views!!!:beer

11-18-03, 03:51 PM

Those colored shots of your's are awesome!! :eek HOW did you do that? The original red is incredilble, but what you did really shows some other possibilities. Maybe GM wil take note and develop some futuristic colors and metallics. :m

Great work, can you provide any more color possibilities? Or is it pretty tough to do?

11-18-03, 05:03 PM
It was really easy. I just opened them with Photoshop and messed with the Hue/Saturation to change the color. I did some other small things to make them turn out a little better, but to get the color to change was really simple.



11-18-03, 06:50 PM
I gotsa photoshop request 4 ya's...
Try to level out the ride heigth, Stick it on the ground and make the color pearl white.:cool
And if you get the time. . .

. . .Try darkening the wheels to a bronzish-graphite shade, and see if you can make the calipers look like they were painted 'brembo'-copper.

when I first saw the bodyshop pics I was dissapointed and confused. But after such a long period of time staring at the same spy pix over and over again, it feels great to finally see it. Even though it's not how I had imagined it to be, I am very pleased with the final result. I am in no way dissappointed, It looks great. Dave Hill was right, this is definitely an evolution from the C5. This IS the C6, a whole new chapter in the corvette legacy.

It's Beautiful

I've had enough of bodies-in-white or shots of protos on car haulers.

I want to drive one.

After looking at all the imgages that have been on the web in the last week or so, it seems to be that the 2005's exterior design mixes a lot of C5 with a little bit of C4 and C3 to come up with a pretty damn good looking car.

11-19-03, 01:08 AM
I tilted it forward a bit and lowered the back wheel. I also made the rims a copperish color. I wasn't able to make it white, it was more a of a silverish, which I also posted.

Putting it on the ground isn't anything I can do in Photoshop. That would require an angle change. The only thing I could do would be change the background and that woundn't make a difference.




11-19-03, 05:08 AM

You are good, wow! Thanks!:cool

11-19-03, 06:52 AM
Well I now know I am getting old.
(I used to make fun of my dad because he always said all the new cars look alike this was in the 80'S)

It seems to look like the C5.When I finally see one one the road I may not even know its the newer one.Anybody else having this problem or is it just me?

For sure I see the scoop difference and the location of the door handels.CAn anybody tell if its the same size? I thought it was going to be shorter.

Lastley who had the closest photoshop picture?

Now that the cats out of the bag so to speak do you think GM is still going to wait until january to unveil it

11-19-03, 08:48 AM
I do NOT think it looks like a C5, are you kidding? :duh From this angle there are many similarities, but I think once you see one for real...with the new headlights and rear facia, you'll know you're looking at something special and new. :eek

Slash, since you're taking photoshop requests, any ideas on body side moldings?? Nice job on Budweisert's request BTW. I personally do not like the copper wheels, I'm more of a chrome or Mag/silver wheel guy.

11-19-03, 08:15 PM
very nice and a little surprising.I didn't expect it to look this sleek after seeing the white body pictures.I think they will sell real well.Anybody have a clue as to when we can have a peek at the convertible?....Automatic roof?......400 hp?....in-dash cd ?....A supercorvette with 600hp?......I think the boys and gals at GM were reading this board and taking our wish lists to the office!!!

11-23-03, 06:53 PM
SLASHNICK, could you email me a enhanced picture of the new C-6. i can get my p/c to crop a picture properly.

thank you


11-23-03, 07:34 PM
I can, but I need your email.

Which one do you want?
A colored one?
The one where I dropped the rear tire?
A cropped one?
