  • POLL: IF C9 EV Sounds Like A V8 Corvette

    Let’s suppose that GM is already working with Bose and the 100% electric battery C9 comes with a standard, completely-traditional Corvette V8 sounding faked sound system, so when you hammer the throttle you sound-wise are positive you are in the ______ (your all time favorite of all time sounding Corvette)?

    And at its reveal GM first shows on the screen what we think is the 2027 ZORA’s sound but the GM then fesses up that 30 second afterwards that what we have been hearing was actually the all-electric C9’s sound (with our being fooled by in cabin and also by its outside “drive-by” sounds)?

    Rendering thanks to LeYang Bai, who while he works for GM calls this purely a personal project.

    Thanks to our “pksjc” for introducing us to this video in which artically created ICE engine sound is shown/heard within a pure EV.



    Poll question: Would you buy an all electric C9 if it had a fantastic Corvette V8 sound piped into to it — with at least one version of it faster to 60 MPH than even ZORA?

    No battery powered C9 for me even if it sounds just like a V8 Corvette (sticking with my C8!)

    I might CONSIDER that (getting over my NEVER getting a EV” vehicle before)
    4.29%

    Yes, that would definitively get me over the hump — especially if 0-60 is faster than ZORA
    5.71%

    Been pro C9 EV all along (so fake V8 sound is not a deal maker for me)

    Too soon for me to know yet.

    I might just buy after market wheels with a lot of spokes and stick playing cards in them on all four wheels to get the maximum effect. It was cool sounding on my Sears 3 speed bike! You can count on one thing though, an electric Vette is going to be stupid fast off the line, and probably clobber the stats for our existing C8s. But I know the draw of a Corvette for many over the years has been aftermarket exhaust on that pushrod V8. I don't think that will change, but people will buy the E-Vette for a host of reasons of their own. And good for them. The V8 experience is more than sound for me, the vibrations, the up and down shifting, feeling of control in the throttle, and even getting home and shutting it off, all have appeal to me.

      I can't do it. Harley tried it and it flopped. Something about the mechanical, visceral experience is I what I like (love how my old Harley shakes and sounds). Look at Formula E. Yes, they are fast but will not replace Formula 1. Even if they pipe in music on the inside (I think Audi does it) - not the same thing for me - call me old school.

        As pointed out it is move than just the sound coming out of speakers. It is the total visceral feel of a gas powered motor — at least for us for non DD. We have a hybrid plug in DD SUV and it works perfectly for what we use it for (do not miss the exhaust sound of it even 1%).

          The only thing that would stop me from getting a C9 would be a battery sounding car... if they can solve that and make it sound like a Corvette then I am in.

            Like many of the others on this forum, replicating the sound of a V8 is only one element of the visceral experience from an V8 sports car. Eventually government mandated EVs will be the only choice of transportation but it's not clear whether technology can replicate the true visceral experience.

              I think I'd rather have it sound like what is is than have fake sound pumped in. But without experiencing it, I can't say for sure. I've heard the EV Mustang in "unbridled" sound mode and think it just seems silly.

              From about the 1:20 mark:



              The Taycan has fake engine noise, too. OUTSIDE the car:

                  Thanks for the video. Not bad for beta stuff. There will be many levels of sound improvements before the C9.

                    Same here and I hope I can find out all I need to know about an electric C9 while there's still time to get a brand new ICE C8 before they disappear for good.

                      Since the sound is totally, artificial, the operator should have a choice of sounds. Including

                      A. Boeing 777 taking off from a short runway
                      B Union Pacific "Big Boy" steam locomotive climbing the mountain pass in Cheyenne
                      C Queen Mary departing New York Harbor
                      D Convair B-36J taking off with six turning and four burning
                      2022 HTC 2LT Z51
                      Front lift, mag ride

                        Maybe they should put one of those transmissions that make a lot of gear noise that you see and hear in the rally cars that would be way cool if they could make it work with an electric motor.

                            There are now apps that will produce different sounds, including performance engines……problem is a slight delay from your accelerator. I’m sure that’ll be all worked when designed into the car.

                              Yes. I want mine to sound like this Typhoon as I cruise thru the neighborhood (use full volume):
