Kai also tells you about the Corvettes he has owned and the funny story of how he loved Corvettes, but never thought he'd get to work for it during his tenure at GM. Get to personally know Corvette Plant Manager, Kai Spande, on this episode of CORVETTE TODAY!

    the roof off example previously shown with its black or kalahari interior showing was classically beautiful.

    this coupe might be too much green...

    not sure I like it as much as a closed coupe unless its just the angle.


    great work for sure...just seems like a lot of green...

    of course im being overly critical...the corvette shown is stunning.

    just not thinking I have as must desire to order one of these in green where as torch red is more appealing...

    just shooting the breeze and thank you for your fine efforts.

    would I be considered an old man if I suggested that chrome rims or high polished rims would help balance the massive amount of green

    maybe black centered wheels with a polished lip would do the trick to just rebalance the visual impact of so much green..

    who am I kidding? The sketch is awesome but i would probably suggest one of the various wheels options discussed above.

    really reminds me of a rear mid engine ferrari and I dont think Ive ever seen a green ferrari...might be as simple as that. Maybe a tinted targa roof would cut back on the amount of greet we are seeing...

    its a lot of green...almost overpowering as its screaming “im green”

    maybe Im just tired of hearing about the green movement these days where its geing shouted the death of all Intermal combustion engines are to be eliminated...

    same for air travel...

    who knows...the green rood off convertible with the roof off and the kalahari interior looked better...

    jmo

    (edit) maybe its the weird trailing edge of the window against the perpenticular weird black rear spoiler? Seems a bit odd...why is the rear window coming to a point at the center of the rear window pointing to a weird shapped black spoiler?

    im sure its accurate...im sure in real life it looks awesome. just saying it seems a bit odd.

    not a deal breaker but a little odd or at least something we havent seen before in other car brands.....(which isnt always a bad thing just surprising )

      I like it, although this shade of green does look a bit lighter than the roadster version - could be the lighting.

      FYI - It's not easy being green... but green can be cool, and friendly like.

          I too think the rear window is odd looking, and I don't doubt the renders by Chaz and FVS, it's just strange to have that pointed window with no style line associated with it. We shall see I guess.

          great job a usual Chaz!!

              I suspect Chaz would be the first to admit that details like this may not be 100% accurate. He's working from camo'd images of test cars, and GM could still be trying to fool us.

                It will be fascinating the day of the reveal for us to learn how accurate some part of the fvs’ and Chaz’ renderings are in many details, yet also to learn what visual surprises GM has in store for us.

                          Just comparing green color used on the coupe versus the convertible rendering as mentioned above.

                          Which one or which parts of which one would you choose?

                            Quite a difference in color ...good eye.

                            personally bith awesome renderings...i prefer the lime rock green color...

                            deeper richer color....


                            that said the sketches are extremely well done in both iterations
