Look At These Tailpipes

    From the time the tail pipe tips were first shown on the camo C8's, I was hoping they were just temporary. I don't have a problem with the shape, it's the SIZE that really bothers me. They look 'wimpy small' like something you'd find on an econo-box or tricked rice burner. The pictures of the blue one in the factory lead me to believe that after market substitutes will still be limited in size by the opening or 'surround panel'. I would bet that the high performance versions will have seriously bigger pipes and a rear lower fascia panel to accommodate 'em….

      Blacked out tailpipes are all the rage.

      i like the blacked out look shown above.

      i think the rear of the c8 has enough shapes etc...

      blacking out the tailpipes visually quiets down the rear of the vehicle in a good way.

      at least from what we have seen so far.

        Good point TooOld2Race, I wonder what it would look like if there was just one larger rectangular-ish outlet on each side?

        Yeah, 4 pipes is kind of a Vette tradition but maybe it's time to break it and clean up the rear end.

          They do look small to me, but like all pictures, perhaps in reality we might have a different impression.

            Maybe the '70 to '73 rectangular tips would work.

              I want to put a set of these pipes coming out the rear deck lid. That would look intimidating.

                Probably my last post..... the effect of the force that is Jalopnik - and others - have set in with me now in the same way it did with the early C7 reveal. Eventually, I grew to "live" with the C7 as did countless people who bought them, but I still have more respect for nearly any design that incorporates Round, staring, non-Kia & Hyundai angular taillights. I still don't care for the tails on the C7 and looks like I won't like them on the C8. Just as I don't like them on the Camaro. So, to me, C6 is the winner of all time. Base model, non-widebody, C6 with a rear end that I could stare at all year long without even driving it. So, I'm gone. Thanks for the brief visit and good luck to all future owners of C8.

                    I tend to agree with those who have said round tailpipes will look out of place among the angular rear forms of the C8. But the C7 has angular rear forms, and the round pipes work fine there.

                    But rather than four square (or nearly square) tips, I'd rather see something that echoes the trapezoidal forms of the taillights and vents. Something more like this:

                    But Chevy could still surprise us.

                    Some people will never get over the round taillights, even though as many Corvettes have had other shapes as have had round.

                      I have the rectangular exhaust tips on my TL and they don't look too bad. The one's on the C8 spy pictures do look too small. The trapezoids illustrated by meyerweb above seem like a better option. It's a shame that they clearly are not modeling the quad exhaust on our C7's. I love that look.

                        Two thoughts: with the rearward location of the engine and a transaxle extending behind the rear axles, there may not be room to get the exhaust in the same location as on the C7. and since we keep hearing that luggage space won't be an issue on the C8, there may be storage behind the engine, and getting the hot exhaust plumping away from that area may be necessary.

                        Yes, some exotics have the exhaust routed to the middle of the rear end, but they don't have any storage back there, I don't think.

                          That stright pipe look , Looks like the ZR1 at the ring last year to tone down the sound, Well maybe not quite that look but as awkward

                            Oh, I would rather see two larger rectangular pipes come out the back than four small ones. The CTS V two pipe configuration isn't to bad out the middle. It is going to be hard to beat the 4 pipes out the back middle of the C7. I am Praying the rear end does not look like the pics we have seen on the past week. If it is the back Fascia maybe we will see an updated version in the near future. I have not heard one positive comment on the rear fascia in those photos. AND, The diffuser does not make sense on a mid engine car. I sure would like to see FVS or Chazcron do a rendering of the rear Fascia of what they think would look nice before next Thursday. just for grins. It is a simple panel and would make an interesting custom part for an aftermarket person to recreate the rear end in Carbon Fiber if the rear is as we have seen it, But I still doubt the rear of the car as we have seen in pcs this week are real. .

                                The transverse muffler is just behind the transaxle so the storage back there will be located above it and already have to deal with heat from that source. I'm sure GM has figured it out.
