I think you are close and that the ME will look very Ferrari-esque, like these 488 GTs.

I've seen the car...just sayin.
...any closer ? warmer or colder?

Great renders. Look at the bottom picture under the camo. From the B Pillar back, it doesn't appear to be any side class or maybe it's covered up. That appears to change the way the rear class looks. Thoughts?

Don’t be surprised if under all that camo is a Cadillac. It’s widely known Chevrolet had to share the architecture with Cadillac in order to share the cost of developing the car. Compare this picture to the cold weather testing picture and the cars are 2 different cars. But I do like the looks of this car through the camo covering.

I agree, but cutting the window line straight at the B pillar would look odd to say the least. I am hoping the window line follows thru to the rear in some very pleasing way.

We need more hints ! But until then...

I can only hope it looks as nice as these drawings ! You've done a commendable job in de-cam'oing the pictures.

I totally agree that without the window line continuing rearward and past the B pillar would look odd (in fact I “bizarre” is how I would describe it). I believe that this will be one of the C7’s design clues that will deliberately carry over to the mid-engine C8.

As to Larshelt’s comment above that it does not look like in the McDonald’s ME pictures, that “From the B Pillar back, it doesn't appear to be any side class or maybe it's covered up,” a single thickness of sticky-back, camo wrap could easily hide any glass. I do agree however, with his last part of his post, e.g., maybe it’s covered up.

I agree with both you and elegant, it wouldn't flow as good as what you have rendered. It would look a lot like the B pillar on the yellow Ferrari 488 below.

[/QUOTE

The Ferrari is of course beautiful, but, to a large degree, its shape is determined by aerodynamic requirements. Hopefully, GM will follow the same path and design an aerodynamically functional shape that is also beautiful. As opposed to Lamborghini which often designs a shape for impact while ignoring its aerodynamic properties.

Very nice work. It looks a boxy to me. I think the top of the rear vent should stretch and sculp itself across the top of the door and into the top of the front fender. It needs to be more connected. Front to rear. The car not your drawing......

try removing the two center posts in the middle of the grill, I don't think the red nose in the pic has that. Soften the lines a bit, it's a winner!

Actually... it looks like there are two supports (see the two circled areas in yellow below).

There looks to be two posts, and/or two more substantial angular supports. Perhaps these are temporary at this point... maybe some (or all) are part of the mechanism holding the entire fascia for painting... but there does seem to be some type of middle supports there.

Yes. Very hard to make out. The REAR fascia can be seen behind it and also confuses the issue... but we can see the rear profile fairly well straight on with a heavy angled chamfer at the top of the rear fenders.

Take a look at the overlay below. I see a bunch of structure (note the B&W painted camo under the black tarp) in the "grill" area, so the front of the car should be very interesting, especially considering the headlamp area also looks very sculpted.

Note the two different designs of the rear vents(grilles) One is a wrap around.
Nice sketchwork.

Could the new C8 be a Spider? Based on some of the comments regarding the b-pillar, it may be hiding a retractable roof like the 488. I for one, hate stowing my targa top. But, would love to drive more often with the top down. Thoughts?

To me it look like they are testing 2 models. The different wheel versions seem to have differnt rear decks s. Anyone else see this ?
