    Looks way too out of focus and fuzzy, Maybe ?

      Even if it is, the photo is terrible and manipulated. The N'ring photographed cars show us more that this pic does.

        Its a really bad rendering...Just look at the light reflections. There are light reflections bouncing off the car where it wouldn't be if the car was really driving on the road. I was a professional photographer for many years long ago, this is a no brainer.

        This is totally fake! Someone trying to get attention.

            What is frustrating to me is how so many of the automobile web sites are posting this as the spy video reveal of the century. Hello Fake News!

              Doesn't have the spears in the front facia that we have seen on many mules.

                  You guys are lucky to have me. The front bumper is ironically correct. Someone guessed correctly as the lower middle section is blacked out and there are no strips on the two side brake ducts like the camo car wants us to believe, nor is there a center section of the bumper like the camo car wants us to believe. So, this master photoshop artist guessed correctly there...and I might add he was pretty smart to blur it out to make it more believe. That said, the side intake is simply a photoshop of Chaz’s renders. The intake is wrong.

                    GM will be lucky to get this car out of the gate w/o the real thing popping up somewhere between now and then! Until then, i guess as they say there is no such thing as bad publicity??!

                      It looks fake to me. It doesn't even look real imo; more like a car from a racing game that I can play on my phone.

                        In addition, the relationship of the wheel/tires to the rest of the car seems off angle wise.

                          I think that center section on the camo cars is real. It is similar to the Aria and 488 style centers and will be used to direct airflow and mount the LIC plate.

                          I am doubting your knowledge and statements about the car at this point.

                          I give it 80/20 you did not actually see the car. "Stripes" on the brake ducts.? Both mine and Chaz's early renders showed the grill open as an option. No guessing correctly. Bumper? Are you a car guy? Come on friend... fess up! ; )

                          Maybe you heard it from a friend who... heard it from a friend whooo, heard it from another....

                          Just my opinion...but you have slipped up on a few comments and been inconsistent here and there... I think you think you know something.

                          ...but I could be wrong... ; )

                            The measure of the C8 will be the refinement of the design and the quality of execution.



                            This "pic" may or may not be derived from a authentic photograph. It is degraded to be non informative.

                            The C8 has to look like a mid engine two seater sports car. Or else, everybody will really freak-out.

                            The more C8 looks like a Ferrari, the more it will look like a Corvette. Corvette and Ferrari seem to admire one another. {yes __ ) (no ___) Vote

                            C8 may be a bit broader in spots for storage.

                            The truly sleek MEs, like Ford GT, have no storage. So they can be a little sleeker.

                            We already know what it looks like but do not know how good it looks. We want to know how good.

                            So Next Thursday is important and suspenseful.
