    Hopefully the touch screen will look more integrated into the dash than the picture shows. Have to wait till we see it in person...

    Probably not this bad, but it looks like about a 70/30 real estate split in favor of the driver.

    All the buttons remind me of a 1970's de Tomaso Mangusta with the buttons turned 90 degrees.

    Are there really no buttons or controls on that large panel just to the left of the steering wheel? Kinda what i mean by "imbalanced"

    That row of buttons is ridiculous... Passenger side looks like a coffin.

    It does look claustrophobic inside but I’ll need to sit in it first. The NSX interior got terrible reviews and looks bad in pics but in person I didn’t mind it at all.

    Looks like 3 different people designed the interior. 4 if you count the steering wheel. Sorry GM.

    The car speaks for itself. It doesn't need me.

    But it sure could have used someone's help.

    I'm not keen on the one interior shot that's shown, but I like the overall look of the exterior. The rear looks HUGE, but it could be the angle of that shot. Not a fan of the wing either, but hopefully it's optional or there's a different one on the higher performing versions. I have a feeling the rear is big because there's going to be a trunk behind the engine, in addition to a front trunk.

    According to Esquire Magazine (where these pics are from), there will be a small trunk in back.

    It’s also available in RHD for the first time to help penetrate - SURPRISE! - Europe and Japan, which I said was a big reason for the mid engine layout.

    It’s rumored to be very light too. Can’t confirm that...

    I guess they want to make the connection with Nasa. It is a connection that is unique to the Corvette and no other car can claim.
