Don't Like the 2014 Corvette Stingray's Square Tail Lamps? There May Be a Solution...


Even though the dust has yet to settle from the presentation of the new 2014 Corvette Stingray and we won't be seeing the car in showrooms until the end of summer the earliest, some fans of the series have been complaining about the switch from circle to the more Camaro-esque square taillights.

While it's true that the C2, C3, C5 and C6 did indeed have round or oval rear lights, it wasn't always like that as the C4 came with four square-shaped tail lamps and the first Corvette had single lights from 1951 to 1960, with the four-light treatment appearing on the 1961 and 1962 models of the C1 lineup.

We don't know how much truth there is in this digital pamphlet said to be distributed by CorvetteItalia, but it does show what the C7 could look like with the C6's more retro, round units.

According to leaflet, the website will supposedly offer a kit containing a fiberglass rear end, C6 tail-lights, wirings and bulbs and tools and diagrams at a cost of $2,800 with free shipping starting from next year.

Whether it's real, a forum hoax or wishful thinking from someone testing the waters remains unknown, at least for now.
