2014 ‘Vette: a case of Viper envy?

Viper-Vette
One of the most eagerly awaited presentations at the North American International Auto Show has to have been the 2014 Corvette. For weeks, speculation, spy shots, sketches and renderings have been flying around the Internet.

Today, the wraps came off, the embargoes were lifted and the 2014 Corvette made its debut.

One of the things that struck Mopar fans was the number of styling cues shared between the new ‘Vette and the new SRT Viper that just went into production at Chrysler’s Conner Avenue Assembly Plant.

In fairness, some of the shared details could be simply a common problem, i.e., air flow management, requiring a common solution.  But others, especially when the cars are viewed from the front, raise questions.

Of course, it’s said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and the Viper is definitely a vehicle worthy of emulation. Viper fans should thank Chevrolet for the compliments.
