It was submitted to a site about what the 2005 corvette design will look like but its nothing like what Chevy said it would be (they described it with words and this aint it). Someone photoshoped a corvette emblem on top near the back but I want to know what kind of car this really is? Does anyone know? Its gotta be at least $200,000 no way its a vette but it is the shit.

OMG.. Salene? Do you see a Ford logo anywhere on that car? I see Chevy.. and Yes, that is the new concept corvette.. they had it out at the dealership a few months back.. looks sweet but somehow I doubt its going to look like that in production.. remember, this is a prototype corvette.. prototypes rarely ever see the streets as designed.

i still say vette, i doubt they went through the trouble of putting the vette symbol on the steering wheel and the hubs as well, way too much work just to dupe, and the rims are vette style as well.

Seriously guys, it IS a vette.. I sat (not drove, just sat) in the damn Red one when it was at my local Chevy dealership for the weekend.. came in on a huge Semi Truck all painted up chevy style..

Its definately not a Corvette. I've seen that car before, but can't remember what it is. Its some Italian designed car.

IT IS A VETTE!

Its also very old!!!

I saw this car at the worlds fair in Vancover in like 1987 or something. It was a consept design for future corvettes. Its been around for quite a while. There is a spy photo of the 2005 vette is this months motor trend if you want to see it.

Your correct M3, Salene is an aftermarket company that modifies cars.. but most of their work is turning mustang cobras into salenes.

It was a concept car though.. they never even started it when I was there.. dont know if it could start.. but it is NOT what the real 2005 is going to look like.. here is a pic of the 2005 vette. I think it looks worse than the concept car.

Here is the new CHEVROLET SSR-THE HOT ROD PICKUP.

Also, go to google, click images, type in Corvette Prototype and see what pages come up... here is a pic from one of them..
