Z06 Potential Patents

As we get ready for the Z06’s debut sometime in the next year, IMO time to brush up on the 23 GM C8 patents — many of which are Z06 potentials: https://www.midenginecorvetteforum.c...alized-patents

  • c8 body detail discoveries ?

    Just wanted to post this for discussion.

    On the VERT the raised ridge is similar to the 488 to split the movible section from the static.

    The body channel concave accent behind the Q "window" of the coupe is a mystery. Just for visual interest or functional if the window is an intake?

          I really love my Corvette, but if someone offered to trade me even up for a 488 I wouldn't have to think twice!

          Watching that video, though, I couldn't help but think that hatch makes one heck of an air brake at speed. The C7 approach, where the tonneau cover remains horizontal through it's range of motion seems a much better design.
          Current C7:SunKissed, 2015 2LT, 7MT, Black over Daytona Sunrise Orange Metallic, Stingray convertible

          Status 3300, TWP 5/17: 2021 2LT HTC, Red Mist Metallic Tintcoat, two-tone Natural w/ suede inserts, FE2, NPP Nickname TBD
