Too bad about the tacky Chevy bowtie in it. I was really hoping GM would make Corvette into a separate performance brand. Not that I believed it was likely...

No corvette brand
Its a Chevy
priced within a range of the previous model
No simultaneous debut with the non existant C7.5
No 169900$ starting price

Exciting Times ahead,and great news for my childrenís
college fund...Iíll get away with buying the car for under 70 000.

I'm kind of with '69' on his comments. It's kind of blah. For such a major change to the car I expected a totally revised logo, not just basically a tighter 'V'. There have been various logos used throughout the generations so having something different for the C8 would not be historically damaging like changing it from something used since its' inception in '53. I get the idea to be consistent with a brand/marque, but with such a huge difference in format it should take on a new logo as well. Just another example of GM styling not staying in front of the other manufacturers as they were in the golden '50's-'60's era. The 'new' Camaro and Chevy/GMC trucks are not exactly getting rave reviews from many regarding their restyle. Too bad...

What a creative logo and the design department should get an award for this one. Good job GM.

Cool comparison. Yeah, it is very much the C5 format with some minor tweaks. Looks clean and nice.

What? It's a slightly tweaked version of the C7 logo? How is that creative? And arguably it changes the best parts of the C7 logo.

Yes, It's very derivative of the C7 badge but thats not a bad thing. In fact I think it will relate to the front hood crease lines in plan view. The Corvette design team is very good at designing orthogenally.

I have no problem with the slightly modified flags in the new logo, but I wish GM would have changed the surrounding "metal" appearance to be something other than chrome. That would have been a nice forward-looking statement: "We're leaving chrome behind".

Like the current C7 badge, you can be sure they will have both black and silver finishes

I'm sure they'll do that. But it doesn't change what I stated.

If you squint your eyes and stare at the new C8 Logo for two minutes, you can see the shape of the side intake scoops....

Plus, the C6 Crossed Flags are very similar to the C7's too. The C7's were an evolution of the C6's to begin with......

Why keep messing with the logo? This is our history:
Corvette Hood Emblem 1953 -

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For example - Ferrari has kept true to their origins since the first Ferrari badged car in 1947:

1947 Ferrari Hood Emblem -

2019 Ferrari Hood Emblem -


I am proud of the 1953 Corvette badge and what it represents. I'm sorry the GM marketing people feel the continual need to 'refresh' the image. Let the new car speak for itself and wear its heritage proudly!

The difference is, the 1953 Corvette badge looks every day of its almost 70 years. I wouldn't mind having one in a discreet place on the car for history reasons, but an extremely dated looking badge is the last thing you want when you're trying to portray your car as modern and cutting edge. I feel the same way about people putting old style Sting Ray script on their C7s. It looks very dated and it clashes with the styling of the car.

The Ferrari badge is timeless. Very, very few brands can make that same boast.
