When it comes to the design of the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, nothing draws out more opinion than the new angular tail lamps, which are very, very different from Corvettes past. But in our eyes, the new lamps are a good thing — just as it is in the eyes of Tom Peters, GM exterior design director of performance cars, full-size trucks, and large crossovers. In the Autoweek video below, he stands firm on the decision of angular tail lights.
To note, Peters and his team tried the look of rounded tail lights when designing the C7, but they “didn’t work” and made the car look old. And, as we’ve stated here, there are big differences between the Chevy Camaro tail lights and those of the Stingray, despite what many claimed initially.
