It would be cool to have the American flag on one side like originally intended in ‘63.

What a clueless comment! Yet another person that's stuck in the past and can't let go!! Current GM basically is nothing like the GM from that era! And wtf does a Fireo have to do with a Corvette??

As far as the C8 logo....I wouldn't mind seeing it without the Chevrolet bow tie logo.

Had a little spare time today and we all know there isn’t a lot of new ME info to speculate on. So I’ve had some time to make up another ME Zora Logo with my ‘V’ incorporated. This one based on being rectangular, modeled on the Ferrari’s Logo which uses the dimensions of ‘The Golden (Rectangle) Ratio’. Goggle search and this Ratio is used throughout the auto industry, in logo designs and even the auto designs themselves, is with the Ferrari. My design uses a white background trimmed in blue, both historic as racing colors for the US of A.

Another way to express ‘The Golden (Rectangle) Ratio and shown in this Ferrari.



EDIT: Example, 13 x 1.618 = ~ 21.

Very cool. You do have some time today. I like your latest one, though the rectangle shape is IMO not appealing; however, if you made it an oval, personally would prefer it. And yes please for all who have influence, for lets replace the French flag with an American one!

Get out. Please learn the history of the car and why that is there before making these kinds of comments.

i would love to see our US Flag replace the French Fluer de lie on the C8 and/or the ME. Sorry, I tried and it didn’t look right. I will try it as an oval. But Chevrolet (the man) history may win out as well as Corvette’s too. As to why I made the rectangular Zoro Logo? I like how Ferrari uses two logos on the 488, the front rectangular with the side a shield. BUT, 1) I’m not a big fan of using a shield, 2) a round logo has Corvette history, 3) I think a tall rectangular shield on the front looks better than round, and 4) then put the round logo on the side. So, close to what Ferrari does, with major differences, and in a way send a message.

<<<<<<< I think I still like this round better than one oval. The below oval example does not look right as the ‘V’ and words leave too much empty space.



EDIT: ‘V’ a little taller, and Zora now in Bold

It's the C7 logo with a little insert from the '63ish era hood emblem.

It makes cleaning that little point a little easier.






some people were pretty close. I wasn’t really close, but I tried filling in the “v” part. I took this image from the thread about the new key fob

I like your idea that since we can not have an American flag, we could have the red white and blue filling up part of the V. Well done jbc1995fb.

However, and if you wish to play with this a little more, it is “tighter V” a la the one in the key fob, so maybe you might wish to meld the two. We need to remember the formula that the C8’s emblem total height is the same as its width. (Thank you Skank for that.)

Thank you again for your clever idea.

And I also made another one to complement a darker theme used along with black wheels. Hope you like this one too.
