  • Brand New C8 Renderings

    We have a brand new set of front, side and rear mid engine C8 renderings. Credit and thanks is solely and properly attributed do to our colleague Corvetteforum (as cited/linked below). Overall, this set of renderings has some excellent visual appearances! Lots of attractiveness to many of its aspects.

    One of the things most intriguing to me is the hood’s front edge’s “downward insets” in the outer 1/3 of each side of the hood — where the hood "meets” the front fascia. However, in those areas, it truly does not meet the fascia, instead appearing as if there is a 1” vertical gap in height at that juncture, i.e., if one were looking from inside the car, it would have an upward “1 gap or lift” in the outer 1/3 of the hood’s front edge as the hood “jumps up” meets the front fascia. One other thought about the hood, is that is totally echoes c7pimp’s observation that the hood is polarizing and that he really liked that about it. I totally agree that in that rendering, it is polarizing and breathtaking in a really good way!

    As so engineered with its two, roughly 1” high air gaps on each side of the hood, this would excellently answer our longstanding question of how is air coming through the center radiator going to be vented. As rendered, it shows a great engineering solution to that question, looks terrific IMO, and simultaneously in the process, its configuration would avoid front end lift. It is similar in execution as Porsche does on some of its models, yet very, very much more attractive visually. As noted one dealer who spoke about its appearance at April's dealer meeting, the front fascia echoes what we have oft heard, that it echoes the ZR1. That makes sense, in that the ZR1 includes the latest aerodynamic testing/advancements in a GM production Corvette.

    The side view has some similarly attractive features. I especially like the curvature of the rear render and the shape of little window behind the “B” pillar, However, there is no continuity of lines between the rear scoop and that small window; in fact discontinuity better describes that key visual juncture. IMO, i.e., those two together are “disjunctive”; do not flow; and,would not be allowed by GM design (remembering a comment made by GM’s VP of Design Ed Welburn re some C7 renderings, in which he said that they would not have been permitted by the GM design team). As we have confirmed the shape of the window as rendered above to be accurate from the many spy pictures we have seen, it leads me to conclude that the shape of the scoop is not accurate.

    But then again, looking overall at the side of the car, my lasting impression is that it is very good looking, and I am again drawn to the beauty of the rear fender line!

    As to the rear of the car, many others’ have negatively commented that it looks blocky, and some have made much more, extremely-negative comments about it, but in keeping with our forum’s guidelines that it is sometimes best to say nothing at all, that is what I will say about the overall rear rendering. Judge for yourself!

    The one exception to that is my comment that the the tail lights looks as if they were taken directly from the Camaro. Their lack of three-dimensionality, conflicts greatly with the comments and the schematic drawn by c7pimp,

    In short, IMO those tail lights will not either fit with the car’s “front 2/3’s elegance,” nor will be see them on the 2020 Corvette. I am not re-living the tail light controversy of the C7’s not be round, just saying that just as the GM design team created C7 tail lights that excellently fitted that Corvette generation, and that same design team will similarly create, very-different C8 tail lights that will also elegantly fit with the C8’s design theme.

    Glad there is another POV to look at. The hood idea is good but the paint shop fascia shows the hood ridges so they do continue to a "point"

    I agree with your other observations.

        Good observation. Thanks fvs. I was looking for your thoughts/analysis. With your accuracy regarding the “hood point” I think it would look even better than it does now.

          All I can say is a big 'WOW'!!! I can't wait.....

          John: Your design comments and observations are terrific. You qualify for a job doing the analysis at AUTOMOBILE magazine.

          My opinion on the rear, while likely to be a minority opinion, is that I like this rendering the best. I always like the 'fat butt' on the old CanAm cars. That's one reason we had 3 new C5's over the years. This rear end rendering is really making me look forward to the many caravans I intend to be on once our C8 shows up. I will work hard to position myself behind another C8 so I can enjoy the view..... Again, I don't feel the least bit bad about being in the minority on this.

            We appreciate minority views here. And respect them. All of us are here to have others politely questions thoughts, info, opinions about the ME. Can you imagine if we had 100 post in a row saying, the exact same thing? Boring...

              I always love seeing new renderings done by different people. One thing that I have noticed is that each artist has different ideas on what the hood and taillights will look like, but they all seem to agree on everything else (with the exception of the side intakes, but they are mostly consistent between renderings just with the odd slight difference).

                I’m really digging the front and side views on this rendering. The rear looks very disconnected and it really doesn’t seem to belong with the overall theme of the design. I can’t wait to be pleasantly surprised!

                  The side "skirts" on this render are interesting, and the hood detail is pretty cool. I like the way they tie the rocker into the 1/4, but I find the FVS renders a bit more appealing. Either car would be fine, and I just wish they'd get in unveiled already!!

                      Always glad to share Corvette news with Corvette folks. While forums have rules against posting info from “competitor forums” (all brands of car forums), we here are Corvette folks wanting to learn, and this rendering was worthy of us seeing.

                      I am now trying to hunt down whether its hood treatment is what we actually see at the reveal (though not sure I will be successful).

                        Love the front although the latest spy shots prove the hood won’t look like that. I don’t like the rear bumper. Appears too blocky.

                          The back looks like a reverse of the front..too blocky for me..since the taillights finally moved on from the 2 or 3 round lights there is no reason not to so something more aesthetic with them..the challengers and hellcats have a rope light sort of thing going which isn't too bad IMHO

                            I do like the front a lot. fvs’s correction of it coming to a point, as we know from the front fascia picture, could even make it even prettier. As to the rear of the car, a big NO THANK YOU! But I am not concerned about the rear’s renderings, for that is not at all what it is going to look like. We know that from the rear fascia picture taken within the factory.
                            Looking forward to our ME arriving late next summer.
