Side scoop is wrong and the front bumper doesn't have a grill in the center. Plus, C7 Z06 wheels.

Chazcron's render is far more detailed and most likely more accurate. This is his latest update upon hearing the center grill insert will be blacked out most likely.

Front, Lines, intakes, wheels all wrong in the red car. Chaz is a rendering God I'm convinced. It's a pleasure watching his stuff.

The other thing Chaz's render gets right is the extreme rake of the car... the side profile of the car really slopes up front to back.

I like it. i don't think the leaked rear is on the design level with this view. love the sharp crease on the rear fender starting over the scoop.

this says corvette to me.

i think it's going to have a wrap around glass look and vents on top of the rear 1/4 panels above the tires , going to be more black in the pillars to tie the windows together..

Totally wrong.... we've seen the camo peel back and the a-pillars are body color on this car which is one of the key departures from the C4/5/6/7 which had that wrap-around cockpit look. As for the vents... none of the CADs show that and zero mules have that. The side intakes accommodate all air ingestion. There will be no vents on top of the quarters.

You guys are too funny.

The red render was was done about a year ago, before the Ring images showed the center deflector. At the time the center grill was unknown and covered with black tarp. An eyewitness said it was similar to the C7 ZR1. The small angles in the center grill are just like the C7 ZR1. The sensors above are there on the c8 Mules if you look close.

The render is is almost identical to Chaz’s at a different perspective.

Ya gotta look at the big picture and not get hung up on small insignificant details that do not change the overall look of the car.
Squrcle tail pipes. A deal breaker. Come on people ! ; )

it it cracks me up to hear how wrong things are when nobody knows nothin for sure!

i have rendered the car with every imaginable variation over these past 2+ years. 2000 render files made. I entertained every idea and showed the various descriptions and even the silly ideas just to show how it doesn’t work. I have rendered the scoop in every shape that “eyewitnesses described. All different by the way so someone is lying! or has a bad memory.

In under 200 hours we will know the truth.

Thanks.

As I have often said, you will be able to recognize the car from these renderings but it will not be identical.

There will be much refinement and a more homogenous design. At least I am hoping so.

Really appreciate FVS and Chazcron for all their posts. Certainly helped me deal with camo fatigue.

I'm still wondering about the door at the side scoop. I was struggling to park my Stingray again at work today (ie tight parking spaces).

Maybe close for wide body version but not the standard coupe.

Should not pose any more difficulty than your current stingray. As I have said, the door triangle does not stick out the center of the door caves in

You will still need to be careful so as not to damage your beautiful car, just like every other beautiful car!

...all of our dreams will be dashed in under 200 hours. ^^^

I am fairly confident that we are all in for some surprises come July 18.

Looking forward to the mayhem and hysteria !.. ; )
