Report: C7 Corvette to Get Split-Window Design

The next generation of the Corvette will come with a rear split-window design. GM's global design boss Ed Welburn said that the next Corvette, known as the C7, will take on some retro styling cues, like the two-part rear window that first appeared on the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray Coupe.

That design actually only ever last just one year, but has become such an iconic symbol of the Corvette's legendary heritage.

Welburn said that with modern back-up cameras and blind-sot detection systems, the limited visibility of such a design isn't as much of an issue as it once was. He did not, however, specify if this would be standard on all models or (as is more likely) if it will be a specific trim level, option pack, or a special model.

Such a design was first hinted at with the Stingray Concept that was featured in the recent Transformers movie. That car is not the next Corvette, said Welburn to Inside Line. "But the split window is something that I expect for the next Corvette."
