Default C8 logo

I know much of the talk is on the rear engine, but what about the C8 logo.


I thought it would be cool if people designed a C8 logo and posted their art.

Some more thoughts:

The name Zora keeps getting tossed around as the name of the C8 for Zora Duntov. The name Zora means "dawn".

Dawn of a new era of Corvettes.

Deep I know. Lol

I thought I would resurrect this thread and see if anyone would want to try to design a C8 logo?

I feel GM has already designed the C-8 Logo. Would be nice if they could give us an early look. I'm not good at drawing, will leave it to someone else on the forum.

When the Transformers Corvette (which was the C7 prototype) came out, it already had the C7 Crossed Flags and the Stingray logos on it. I think that was 3 years before the C7 was announced. With that being said, I'm pretty sure everything has already been designed by now.

I posted on this forum, about three years before the C6 came out, that I wished the C6’s emblem/logo was not the C5’s V-emblem inside the circle, as it was a bearcat to wash, wax and detail inside the circle — hoping then that the C6’s would have a nice, cleanable one.

I was catisgated on this forum for my post then, for my worrying about trivia. Nevertheless, when I saw then Chief Engineer Dave Hill at soon after at a major Corvette event, I asked him to please consider a simple, cleanable V-emblem, and explained to him the above reasons. Perhaps GM had already made that decision when I talked with him, but it was functionally nice to see a simple V-emblem when the C6 was revealed — and again on our C7’s. So I again wish a simple, washable, detailable emblem for the upcoming mid engine emblem/logo. Or maybe better yet, one that is not inset indented into the body panels, so it too could be easily goo gone removed as many of us have done with some of the C7’s “emblems.”

CrabbyJ, I like your C8 V!

It kind of looks like high speed wind is creating a tighter V for less air resistance, e.g., going faster than the C7’s...

And cleanable. Looks like “V for victory” in the 40+ year long battle for a mid-engine. Well done!

Thanks, you're the first.

I just figured with the all of C8 threads on guessing what the body is going to look it, it would be fun to try to guess how the emblem would be.

ford GT looks the best... old school performance tho. I'd still take one that looked as good for 150-200k. They are 300k+ now.

Regarding the emblem, I like c6 best. Can' stand the sharp angle V design. I' prefer no badges.
