C8 Section Re-Organization, With Our New “Mid Engine Exterior/Interior Pictures, Videos and Renderings” Section

MECF members asked for our segregating pictures, renderings and videos into one area; looking ahead, that section will become our most viewed area once you get your C8’s. Pre-existing threads that fit are now being moved. Thank you for the suggestion!

  • Car and Driver: Getting excited about the C8 ME since 2014

    Good slideshow of how C&D reported the existence of the C8 since 2014 via spy shots and other info, even when they got a few things wrong

    Five years of our waiting in one form or another. That is a testament to our C8 commitment.

      Thank you. This is my favorite picture. I think the final scoop could look a lot like the C8.R’s.

      So many questions about the ME right now, but the answers are nicely, though slowly, coming out.

        Some of those very old pictures feature a very short nose and a very long deck behind the passenger compartment. Looks like a El Camino version of a Corvette, with a tonneau cover.

          The first mule was definitely "El Camino" themed lol

            Yes, zeroing in the emblem on the grille, it was an Australian Holden Ute (El Camino)

              Good observation, and why they chose it for the first C8 mule. At that point, consistent with what a mule is, what they were doing was a “proof of concept,” testing the DCT/engine/transaxle system. Clearly from where we sit now, it passed that test.
