That thread is likely where your linked story started from...

Nice to see CarScoops is finally featuring my renderings. These renders haven’t gotten around much. Patrick George, editor at Jalopnik, who previously published my renders of the Camaro and Mustang, told me he was going to publish them a month ago, but apparently decided against it. I’m thinking maybe they didn’t want to get on GM’s bad side again, especially after they published renders based on leaked info on the the C7.

Journalists parroting bullcrap.

Carscoops must be affiliated with CNN, NBC or FOX.

I've got to hand it to Zerv02, he's taken trolling to a whole new level.

Actually, I've got to hand it to CarScoops for writing a reasonably accurate piece. More than anything, they were dissing Zerv02's credibility and making fun of the crazy speculation going on here and other places.

That is some nice artwork. The C8 looks nice here, and the back end, very nice. But the C7 is such a beauty that GM shouldn't have any trouble selling them, especially if
there was a reasonable price differential.
You know, the C8 will sell well as long as quality control is there. My 2014 LTZ Silverado is a beauty, but the quality leaves quite a bit to be desired. I have owned scores of new GM pickups, but this one is a stinker. As long as Mary Bara can finally figure it out, the C8 will do just fine. But women can be so stubborn...Ö.
