Still has Bose.

Cheap looking steering wheel controls.

Otherwise, looks nice. And a bit too finished for a prototype so maybe a pilot production car?

And, the Corvette emblem clearly still has a Chevy bowtie on it ... so much for the rumors of an alternate distribution/brand/marketing channel.

I was skeptical last Summer when he was posting under different usernames and threads were getting deleted. Thus, I asked him what harm there would be in producing a sketch...which he did shortly thereafter for everyone to see. No doubt, he's owed apologies from LOTS of people. I know how he feels as I had some info back when the C7 was launched and was vilified by the masses. Because there is so much BS on the forum, it's understandable that people are hesitant to believe everything they see and hear.

PS - if the reveal doesn't happen as ZERV predicted, there will be a ton of "I told you so." On the other hand, if he's correct about that as well, I hope people are big enough to step forward and offer sincere apologies.

That feels like something Chevrolet would do, though, doesn't it?

I was thinking the same thing. When zooming in, the resolution is still too low. It appears to be either a front-end lift or adjustable rear spoiler.

I'm the C7's hater. I hate that car with all my heart. But damn, this one is impressive. This is one of the best interiors among the supercars. If not the best. Materials look awesome. Design looks original. Well done Chevy. Looks like Zerv was not trolling. OMG, can't wait.

Looks good overall, though not feeling the steering wheel. Obviously based on the C7 as you can tell by the cup holder, center compartment and the raised slant row of buttons that used to be the grab handle for the passenger. Unfortunately the cheap buttons and stuff are likely going to be there if they want to keep the cost low. If GM can really do all these improvements and only sell the car for $5k more than the C7, they've got a winner.

I agree on the C7...but I'm not sold on the C8 either and these interior photos didn't help. The interior looks upscale, but it also keeps with Tadge's design ideas, which suck. Much more likely to buy an F-Type than this.

Of all the car, you chose the F-type for the interior ? It's probably the worst part of the F-type. Everything else is great.

So a couple of thoughts. Why this picture just a few days before NAIAS? Was this a person at where they will be revealing? But where are the exterior pics? And what is behind the blurred out portions?

Chevrolet did say they were not introducing any new products at NAIAS, but that doesn't mean they could do it down the street lol.

Zerv may have his redemption, but keep the tar and feathers ready for the 14th just in case.

Someone has a poo eating grin on his face today.

From the original post on this topic by Zerv02:

When the vehicle comes out, or at least when you get a first glimpse of the interior, please refer back to this post.

No jokes here my friend, there are already waitlists with hundreds if not thousands of people

No need to feel stupid.... im not out to dupe anyone, like I said to the other users, when you get a first glimpse of the interior, refer back to this post. Im not sure what else I can tell you other than that

I dont get it... why would anyone make this up... why take the time and effort?

I saw the vehicle...

I have similar in my 17 Audi A4 and love it.

Probably u don't like the design, but the materials are revolutionary good.
