Looks good...does anyone know why they've been running on the Nurburgring without the headlight lenses/covers?

Seems like it would create more drag on the car without those on, and give somewhat skewed test data.

Nice clean rendering. Some small details are not as per the real images but close enough to give a good impression.

I am happy to see that the artist realizes that the radiators are on each side in front of the wheels, and there is no need for an opening in the middle of the "grill"
I expect the side vent may be different as I suspect there is some camouflage of the vent, like they have camo on the rear.

I am liking it, I expect it to look fantastic when it is finally revealed.

Saw this in here a few days ago. I think the grill bits need to be blacked out. Anyone care to take a shot at that?

After looking at it for a while...I think I'm wanting the traditional corvette "humps" back. When the C3 went to C4, I thought it was too flat and I missed it's coke bottle figure. I tried adding some more "humps" back.

I think the base model won't go nuts with the scoops as shown. They will save it for the hi performance models later as they have in the past. Helps functionally and image wise too.

That's probably very close to the real car.
And, for me, that's unfortunate...

Looks generic. The only thing about the design that says Corvette is the emblem.

Interesting that they put a "Stingray" on the fender.

The more humps looks good in the front and not so good in the rear.

Front looks good but the back looks tacked on in the render. I hope it would not be as wide looking and be a bit more angular from the rear of the top to back of the car. Overall its needs to be meaner looking than that.
