The way Chaz, BVDS and I have rendered the headlamp is the way they are for real. In the CAD and camo images. They all match up. The trim bits are broken with pixelated artifacts so we really can't resolve anything and our eyes tend to see what they want to see.

This is exactly why concept renders are drawn very loose and with broad strokes. It allows the imagination to visualize different things at different times and then we can create alternative versions based on the imagined details.

We are fairly sure the headlight have the white line accents we saw in the NYC images. Those appeared to be production.
The "real" image does not show this detail...at least not very well. They were strong in the NY images.

It is likely a Chaz render screen grab PSed and blurred. Maybe Chaz did it himself? He has been strangely quiet on this subject! ; )

Could it be real... sure... but I don't think so. But even if it is, my point was that there is little difference in the renders vs the blurry image. It should not sway anyone either way. The fact that it is blurry and we can use our imaginations to fill in or omit things we like and don't like make it more acceptable IMO.

I know you donít want to believe this but your headlight renders are based on Veeeeeeeeery early CAD files. They are wrong, plain and simple. In 10 days, you will know.

In what way? The basic shape? They match the Camo cars AND the CADs exactly. I don't care about the innards. They also match the blurry pic "shape" I am not talking about the bulbs. So what is the big difference in your estimation?

So I guess they built 40 c8 test mules based on the early cads with incorrect parts and are testing those "wrong" parts up to the last day before the reveal and THEN will test the real parts?... just to fool us... ?

You also said the rear lamps sit flush against the body and don't stick out like my renderings...
is this the real thing? looks to "stick out" from this angle which is the reverse angle of my render...

I don't doubt you may have seen the car at some point, (or maybe I do) but maybe your just misremembering or misinterpreting?

Like you say... we will know in 10 days! I hope I am surprised!

It's a photoshopped pic, and not even a very good one - just check out the grill opening under the driver's headlight with the tan triangle piece sticking out of it. It's already been stated in another thread that it was removed because it was posted by a banned individual.

Someone that has seen it says the front is basically correct, however the side scoop(s) are still wrong.

I can't really make out the side scoop for sure, but it appears to be two scoops. A large upper scoop and a smaller lower scoop that is a dead end. Strange. See my red outlines...

I hope the picture isn't real. There is way too much black grill on the front of that car for me. However, tons of black grille on the front is the latest styling trend (Toyota being one of the worst), so who knows. Chevy did design the 2019 Camaro SS.

To each their own, I personally like the wide open front grille. More room for cooling and looks more aggressive and mirrors the current trend in exotics. If you don't like grilles... Tesla makes cars that might suit your taste /s.

Officially not me, FVS. I don't think it is a hack of one of my renders either. The camera blurring seems real. I think the side scoop has the door portion on and the body portion off, like the grainy zooms of the last teaser images.

My suggestion is not to make any assumptions off of the streetspeed717 photoshop work ...

we have about 8 days to wait and then we will know exactly what the c8 looks like from an official GM releases.


if you are having fun...cool...if you are getting discouraged....id say just wait the 8 days ...

im sure the vehicle the corvette team rolls out will meet your expectations in most areas...

thats how it goes through most of the new generations...

never perfect but dam close.

just my two cents....

I noticed the same thing and was surprised others hadn't mentioned it. I think everyone here is too busy hating on the guy and saying it's fake to actually analyze it. GM loves this I'm sure. Back to the lower scoop, my guess is that it's s a rear brake duct.

Front end isn't open.... it's mostly closed and then blacked out. It has to be closed because there's a frunk behind there and the cooling exits the wheel wells.

It's not a second anything... it's just the contours of that area on the car. It's very curvy.

Looking at the old CAD image again makes it much more clear, you are right. It's just the sharp coke bottle shape and reflections playing tricks.

Now my question is will there just be the single trim piece at the top of the scoop/door (like in the SS717 pic) or will the trim piece also carry into the quarter panel like in the Chaz renders? I'm thinking it'll just be the top like the SS717 pic. 8 more days... can't wait!

I think the SS717 pic and Chaz's are very similar... just that the SS717 pic sucks.
