There is little questioning the recognizability of the American born and bred, Chevrolet Corvette. Whether you are a car aficionado or just a school age boy able to recognize the difference between a girl and a boy, the Corvette has a history to be proud about, until N2A gets a hold of it.
When thinking of the way car designs have changed and how quickly some manufacturers are to change car designs quicker than underwear, it comes as no surprise to most people that in Corvette’s 55 year history, there have only been 6 major design changes. Now to see something as seriously awesome as the Corvette turned into a disgrace just makes me want to vomit Nissan parts.
Now in great disrespect to Harley Earl, welcome n2a Motors, where nothing is sacred. The
shame 789 is a described in a Business Week article as Combining design elements from different classic Chevrolet models, the 789 shows the world that you really can’t have enough of a good thing. The 789 looks instantly iconic because it is a melding of 1957, 1958 and 1959 Chevys.
Where’s the proud large front end of the car that the late 1950’s vehicles had, letting those innocent bystanders in front of them know that there would be death if they stepped out in front of a moving car? Melding the 1957, 1958, and 1959 would wind up looking like a Salvador Dali painting, with things drooping together.
While trying to explain the interior, the article reads on The exterior of your car is what the world sees just like the outside of your home. But you spend most of your time enjoying your home and car from the inside. The first Impala model was the 1958, it was top of the line and only available in two door convertible and coupe. In the years following it was the name of a model series of sedans, coupes and wagons. Purists consider the ’58 as the only true Impala.
Not to be too exact, the first Impala was a 1958 model. Unfortunately the 1958 Impala was actually not a car model, it was a trim package for the Bel Air.
So the article should say that n2a decided to make a Bel Air, using a Corvette C6 frame, chassis, suspension, engine, etc.. and just give it a different body. Though it might be worse to tarnish the Bel Air name.
If you really want to continue seeing the n2a “Corvette”, here are more pictures of the Dali Corvette
