Well if you want to go there, the movie did suck. I was entertained but it definitely shat all over the fans.

They retained the recognizable identity that is pure to the corvette. I suspect GM was very particular about not doing something that would be contrary to that.
Not surprising.
No way would they want to alienate The Faithful.

Is there detention to the rear bumper or does it abruptly come to an end like the C6, and to a lesser extent, like the C7?

Is the rear spoiler tacked on (an add-on) or is it integrated to the rear design?

Thanks again.

Would you describe the idea of the hood vent, similar to any of these four? Not necessarily the size, but the general concept.

I think the C7 looks very exotic. The ME C8 will be even more so. To some people, the "problem" with the Corvette is how popular they are. Sometimes I'm wondering how the public would view the Ferrari/Lambo cars if there were MORE of them on the road (not realistic I know, due to the prices). The enthusiasm and desirability for the ME C8 will decrease if you can see them on every street corner.

I'll be sorely disappointed if the C8 looks like a cookie cutter European supercar. Corvette needs to retain it's own unique look.

Regarding the Gen6/LT7 label, I hope it's a simple evolutionary change like the LS series, because a huge engine design change is going to orphan a lot of work/research out there.

And for the record, I'm on record that the mid-engine sports car will not be badged as a Corvette.

Promise you, a 65-80K, mid engine sports car will not be on every corner of the street lol. I rarely see corvettes where I live, and I live in a big city!

He actually said:

Honestly, all 4 of these miss the mark. They basic concept of the look is there.

I see what they are trying to do with incorporating the look of the front bumper spy shot into a rendering. It just looks wrong. The inserts on either sides of the large openings are completely different.

#1 kind of has the right idea on the front, but the flow is all wrong. Too many lines

#2, damn that's hideous hahaha. ? Hopefully we get more details on what is so wrong since the basic shapes are the same as spy images...

#3 looks like a C6 had a baby with a Saleen S7. The headlights are WAY to big and not even close to the right shape. This image(an older one) does not have the "front view" lamps redone.

#4 The taillights are obviously way off, I just pointed out why in my op. However, the rear intakes (Yes, those are intakes to the airbox beleive) that are somewhat trapezoid, looks pretty close. however, the design feature below it sticks out and wraps around towards the front some like this:

"Way" off could be subjective? The basic outline should be close but note C7pimps detail of the angled/beveled sculpted surface


My renders are a work in progress. I have no ego in them. I am having a good time speculating and learning...from everyone but you!

I have always said that these renders may give an "idea" of the look and feel of the car, but that the actual car undoubtedly will be much more exciting and beautiful...as it should be! I have done may different versions with different features to try to discern the details and see what "could be under the tarp.

I want to know and learn more so we all... even you Shaka, can get a better idea of what we can look forward to.

I eagerly await more details.

I live in a pretty populated/affluent area and see about as many Ferrari's Lambos as I do Corvette's of all years. I see many more Porsche.

You only altered it slightly. At least give credit to the original artist at ACS !

Why not post that sketch ( and I use the term loosely ) of yours instead?

Maybe it’s just me, but I never found the notion that you see corvettes on “every street corner” to be true. Where are all these corvette Z cars? I hardly ever see the base car, nevermind the Z variants. In fact, I see far FAR more 911s.

The C7 Z has been in production now for 3 years...in that time, I have seen probably less than 10 drive by me on the road. The same was true for the C6 Z cars. In fact, to this day, I have yet to see a C6 ZR1 on the road.

Again, I hardly ever see the base cars as well. I have been in the military since 2005, since that time, I have lived in 5 different states and two different countries...so it’s not as if I am not getting around.

So I ask again, where the hell are all these Z cars around every corner? 911s, yes. Corvettes, nope. At least that has been my experience.

Rant over.

Firstvettesoon ... I for one (and I suspect there are many) really appreciate all the work you have put into your renderings. I doubt the car will look exactly like any of them, but the speculation is fun and you have way more talent than I (or, most probably, any of your detractors). So please keep up the cool work ... don't get embroiled with the haters ... thanks again!

He didn't hurt my feelings. I "asked" him to use them to get a better idea of what the real car looks like. You can't make things better without understanding what works and what doesn't.
