    btw on a separate note, this web site is a breath of fresh air compared to that "other" forum where there is a lot of hostility and bad manners.

        SPY SHOTS

        BY: CHRISTOPHER SMITH The encounter was brief, but it revealed a couple new details.

        News on the mid-engined Corvette front has been quiet side lately, but our friends atMidEngineCorvetteForum.com happened upon a new spy video posted yesterday by Corvette Nut on YouTube. Before you click the video above to see the action, please note there’s an F-bomb dropped in the clip. Also, there’s some shrill laughter towards the end that could annoy co-workers, or at the very least, alert your boss that you’re watching videos instead of working on that monthly report. Either way, discretion is advised. See The C8 Renders:

        It’s not the best look we’ve had of Chevy’s new supercar, but it does give us some fresh details to ponder. There’s a small lip spoiler at the rear that we haven’t seen before, and unless there’s some strange reflection occurring on hard edges around the headlights, the car seems to be sporting LED daytime running strips just above the main projectors.

        This tester is still wearing lots of bulky camouflage up front as well. We’ve seen other spy photos that show considerably less frontal area, with smaller intake openings that angle neatly under the car. This head-on view also gives us a different perspective on those large side intakes. In short, we can hardly see them, save for when the videographer steps outside for a better look. Perhaps those openings aren’t as massive as side-on shots make them out to be. MidEngineCorvetteForum.com has some interesting discussion taking place about this video that’s worth a read as well. See The C8 Patents:

        Obviously, the Detroit Auto Show came and went without the slightest hint of Corvettenews. Current thought is that the car will arrive in a few months, either at the New York Auto Show or possibly at a stand-alone event in late spring. This all hinges around whether the reports of electrical problems in prototypes are delaying the reveal. Previous C8 Sightings:

        In the meantime, Chevrolet is slated to reveal a new model of the current C7 Corvettelater this week at Daytona, ahead of the famous Rolex 24 endurance race. You can also check out some exceptional fan renderings below of what the new C8 might look like when it finally breaks cover later this year.

          I think we saw the lip spoiler earlier when the car was posing in that Detroit area park, but it had some camo over it.

          Looks very similar to the one on my C6.

              Looking better and better. Would it not be even better when GM removes all that padding that is still below the zebra vinyl so we can actually see the body’s final contours.

                I wonder if I can get one in "camo" I'm so used to seeing that scheme.

                  An even shorter video, but great side view while it is stopped, thanks to Enufpower.

                      Yes, the front of the car is short.

                        Yes I knew it was, that video just seems to exaggerate it to me.

                          I suspect you could get it wrapped in a very similar pattern if you wanted.

                            The engineers must be testing the C8's cooling by the appearance (front grille) of the car in post 18. Which is interesting because months ago at the track (post 25) the C8's grille appeared finished.

                              Will that front grill serve as cooling for anything other than brakes?

                                Since Toyota MR2 had a radiator in the front I assumed that the C8 would have a radiator in the front.
