Default Tonight's update

I spent the whole evening reworking the scoop. It is not all there yet, I have new reference on the depth. Maybe tomorrow, but here are two rendered angles:

Really enjoying your progress. Thanks for helping us better visualize the car.

A point to ponder:: FVS and Chaz can create reality and GM doesn’t want this to happen, not yet. GM privately messages them with specific orders. “Make that side vent as hideous as possible, we are not ready to show all of our cards”

That side vent could not possibly look like this, can it? A Konigsegg looks subtle compared to the latest C8 render.

These pics should help with your efforts. At least with the placement of the door release pad.

Better that they deploy a corporate disinformation specialist than a corporate investigator.

I know both FVS and Chazcron personally. They both have integrity. They both have not been GM contacted. They both are are highly skilled artists, and are sharing with us, gratis, their incredible expertise.

Let’s write off this “GM privately contacts and directs them to make the car ugly tin foil hat” supposition right now.

I hate this photo, because it renders my renders invalid. Screw all you guys who got it right.

elegant, what is up? This Republican/Democrat thing has trickled down to this forum?

Everybody but you knows that I love their work.

Everybody should know that GM is on the forum right now and so what. They are working very, very hard to keep this car “under wraps” and this forum is their score card.

You can tell from the CAD that there's a more flowing shape there than can be seen with the wrapped cars. That area is no where nears as blocky, slab sided, and bulging out as the fake panels under the wrap make it look.

You guys are creating one hell of a door ding maker with your door line/top of the scoop.

I think he did not anticipate the under door lip handle and the upper scoop lead-in on the door.

But we don't really know anything for sure...yet.

I agree that the way it is being shown on the camo cars is not "real" I am sure the final design will be very well executed and beautiful. I think those "blocks" as you point out, will be much reduced and flow into the rear fender in a natural way.

There are a lot of very smart people here and I am posting this drawing with some questions and observations. I'd like to hear thoughts about the CAD info and potential scoop execution.

here is an updated side view render and also some Qs about the CAD intake.
The side view was tweaked a bit and fine tuned for some details.

I believe the final car will be much more finely styled with wonderful surface details and body lines.

To me, they can not have the side intake bare with no cover to keep out debris. If you look at the CAD you note that the body (brown) has a cut out for the scoop and seems to show split (upper and lower) intake ducts. The elongated scoop shape goes past the actual ducts. I think this area needs to be filled with a cover of some sort...maybe similar to the Mclaren and Audi? Or body color but I think it needs to be covered with something.

thoughts?

This part will be contrasting color:

The final shape of the inlet hole will be in the quarter panel. The door handle can be moved, so my shape inlet is still feasible. You can see my addition to the lower sill to accommodate the wider quarter on my C6.
