It’s no secret that the C7 Corvette is very closely related to the classic C2 Corvette. In fact, it was the C7 that resurrected the Sting Ray name (as Stingray). But have you ever gotten the chance to look at a C2 Corvette and a C7 Corvette side-by-side, in the flesh (or at least on a screen)?

A brief documentary (below) on Vimeo gives us the chance to check the two out. It’s actually a great piece of short cinema and shows just how magnificent both models are. The first half of the doc focuses on the classic C2 Corvette Sting Ray, specifically a 1965 Daytona Blue split-window C2 ‘Vette. After the introduction to the incredible vehicle, the documentary then turns to the award-winning Corvette Stingray, which debuted for the 2014 model year.

The man featured in the documentary, Joe Gallo of autofocus.ca, highlights how the two models are the same. After reviewing stylistic throwbacks, like the hood grilles, the back hatch, and the exhaust note, Gallo sums up the overall similarities quite simply: “Both cars exuberate a certain type of excitement. And whether you’re driving the ’65 or whether you’re driving the 2014, the minute you get out of the car, you’ve got a smile on your face from ear to ear.”
