Interview: Tom Peters and the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
Cool Hunting, 24 January 2013.

Abstract/Summary

[...] Just the seventh iteration since the iconic car’s inception in 1953, the redesign is all about moving the model, and the company, forward.

Rather than playing it safe with some surface tweaks, the C7 evolves and, in some cases, removes some of the model’s most legendary design details—details that to executive director of exterior design Tom Peters felt, “old.” Creating no shortage of buzz, the polarizing design takes a definitively American stance—love it or leave it.

We had the chance to catch up with Peters to talk about everything from design freedom and inspiration to the backlash of the car’s design evolution.
