Not sure if you all know but Chazcron was deadly accurate with the next gen camaro...

Amazing talent.

Check out his render of the camaro... looks almost IDENTICAL to the production car...

This is proper Corvette standard and what I was expecting. This works also. I'm very frightened.

I thought all my '05 Mustang renders were all lost. I found this post in my '15 Mustang thread where I detailed the original renders/spoilers I did for the '05 mustang.

Scroll down to:

How I revealed the 2005 Mustang in 2003.

Then go back to first page to see the progress over the 74 page thread.

This forum is very lucky to have some serious talent that truly entertain us- Firstvettesoon, Shaka, Chazcron, and many more. The next few months are going to be a lot of fun.

I don't see the top of the fender body line lining up with top of the scoop. Something is just not quite right- it begins an upward curve as it transitions onto the door.]

even on the c8r it looks tacked on and not natural and sexy. I dont think its accurate.

Here's an early photo of the one of the mules that was published in May, 2018. I noticed the shape of the scoop under the fabric camo, so I adjusted the brightness and contrast to highlight the details.



Here's the same photo with an outline added to highlight the lines.

You can clearly see the outline of the real scoop in the top photo its much more rearward of the fake add on pieces. Follow the red line on the bottom photo also this is the real shape of the door and scoop much more subtle than the fake cammo pieces.

I hope the cove is more curved vs. "pacman" jaws angular. However, if you remove the part people think is tacked on, it would greatly reduce the scoops ability to ingest air. I believe the outline will be curved and body color and the "tacked on" part that creates the pacman lower jaw will be black or carbon fiber and an insert. so you visually get the rounded cove, but get the air ingestion ability of the pacman jaw.

I still think this whole ledge is fake if not the whole rear quarter.
But I love seeing new renders.
Keep up the good work guys.

i suspect that when Chazcron gets the rendering 3d he will see areas that just don't make sense and get closer to reality.

Very exciting!

John T,

While the top of the intake line appears to to be more subtle than the C8R, IMHO these images seem to suggest the fender top ridge does transition to the top edge of the intake similar to the C8R.
The curve you mentioned may just be the optics of the edge softening as it terminates at the front of the intake - and, oh yeah, camouflage!

I look forward to your work in progress continuing.
Agree... everyone's ideas are speculation at this point... so have fun with it. I appreciate the time/energy you'll be putting into it. Thanks.

This photo shows the outline of the camo really well.

Here is how I see the side scoop outline from this view. I used the side photo that I added the red outline above and translated it to 3D. (Yes, the camo is really hiding this shape, IMO)

Thanks for clarifying your version of the side scoop. Honestly, I am hoping the C8 is going to be eye candy like an exotic and at least 700+ HP/AWD.

This makes perfect sense and you can almost see the real scoop under the camo, especially where the camo skin is being pulled taunt.

Agreed,
Its very hard to go against that.
Seems to be the actual shape of the scoop.

I think I have the scoop figured out. Lower door moulding/character line goes into and bi-sects the scoop much like the molding that bi-sects the vent on a C5 Vette.

A possibility is that it is hiding in plain sight.
This older image shows the door lip angle hidden under that boxy black tarp rectangle. IF, the angled V overhang was not real, why hide it under a tarp box built to access the door touch pad under the lip? At this point in the camo...a year ago, there was no need to build the camo fake panels and then put a black tarp over it.

Also note that the angle of the top door edge scoop lead follows the C8R angle and the bottom angle seen in the top image suggests a similar angle upward toward the center similar to the C8R.

If the angles are real, they can only converge so many ways. A sharp V or rounded.

Just food for thought and an alternate possibility.

FVS,
I agree with your analysis. The bottom line is that while there is a ton of speculation on the side intake, the best example we have is the C8R. Why wouldn’t they share the same DNA if not the same dimensions. The organic “pelagic predator” mouth of the C8R is just too right to not be very close to the production intake. Hiding in plain sight indeed.
