Default Tired of all these leaked pics

It's only a week away from the real GM reveal of the C8, so why not back off and let GM do it's thing. We don't need any more "leaked pics".

What’s the harm? If you don’t want to look, don’t look.

Oh I wouldn't get too tired too soon as I have a feeling more leaks will come out since we are a week away. Anythings possible.

I will watch the reveal if it is streamed online.....

.....and if I remember.

I actually looked at the calendar when the other member posted it is a week away.

Didn't even know today's date.

It's massive free advertising it's on every car related social media page and car forum. I'd wager GM is behind it all.

Donít beat around the bush, tell us what youíre thinking. Iím thinking a leaked photo doesnít cause any harm to sales. Who (in their right mind) would decide not to buy the C8 because there was a leaked photo?

Of course GM had something to do with all the hoopla. It certainly kept the conversation alive.

These leaked pics do no real harm being in 2D. Now if someone leaks 3D pics I can see in my old ViewMaster that would be great. Or maybe an Oculus Quest App movie would thrill me speechless. Red and green 3D glasses could work too.

otherwise I will see the C8 on 7/26 in AC.

Id suggest gm is behind the leaks to build excitement.

i look forward to each and every photo everyday...

its all in good fun.

so far its all in piecemeal anyway usually done at weird angles to throw us off but still peak our interest.

The leaks so far haven't spoiled anything to me.... the rear end was a really bad picture and we already saw the rear fascia in the paint shop leak over a year ago and the tail lights are what's on the C8R testing shots so no huge surprise there. The interior shots are nice, but not the full thing and not with the production colors and we still haven't seen the upper dash or out the rear window etc. And we haven't seen a good full shot of the car or the side scoop.

Iím sure many of the leaks are orchestrated by Chevy to keep up interest in the car.
