Nether rounded square or squircle, looked it up. They are rectangular with rounded corners.

Definitely not a fan of them in that leaked pictured.. Hopefully they look better from different angles.

I hate fake exhaust tips and Porsche is one of the worst offenders.

One of the things I have always liked about the Corvettes (even when I HATED Corvettes) was the fact that they eschewed dumbass gimmicks like the integrated exhaust tip.

Square exhaust tips have a long and storied history being a hallmark of the more badass cars you could buy from an American company.






I say, maybe, wait until you see them in person before you decide you hate them.

Really.

Been driving real cars since 1967 but some might think in its day my 1962 409/409 was a also real car.

I may never sell a Corvette again. Trade in only for me. Corvette people are too picky about every stupid little thing on a car.

I sold my C7 via KBB instant cash offer. Ended up being $800 less that I would have taken private party. Didn't have to deal with anyone. Just took it over, they walked around it, started it up, took the title, cut me a check. Bye.

Wow those new Porsche's look beautiful from behind! I was hoping the C8 would but I shouldn't have expected it as there hasn't been a truly beautiful rear from the Corvette since C2's and early C3's imo and I'm a Corvette fan owning a C6 ZO6. I think they've went backwards with the C7 rear and it looks like with the C8(still need to see with rest of the car but it's not looking good to me), despite moving forwards in other areas.

Porsche Turbo exhaust tips are TOO BIG, and too "in your face". I like the C8 ones better. I also like the fact that the C8 tips are sculpted, and not just a chinsy piece of polished sheet metal wrapped around a pipe.
