  • Still don't like the C8?

    See how similar it is to the C7:

    Cool article and photos from https://www.topspeed.com/cars/still-don-t-like-the-look-of-the-2020-chevy-c8-corvette-let-us-show-you-how-similar-it-is-to-the-c7-corvette-ar186088.html

    If all you saw was the front part of the Corvette C8, the part in front of the front axle, you’d immediately know it was a Corvette, and you’d not know where its engine was located. Chevy designers did a pretty good job to not only evolve the familiar design but in integrating it with the car’s radically new proportions.

    Sure, the hood is flatter and it dips quite low in the center, where on the C7 there’s a power bulge to accommodate the engine, but there’s a clear visual link between the two cars. And, it’s not like they’re the same - the aren’t. The C8 has considerably wider headlights than the C7 and their general shape is actually closer to that of the Corvette C6 from two generations ago. The actual design inside the cluster is different, but the outline is definitely similar, and it accentuates the car’s width.

    Basically, the C8 and C7 front fascias are fairly similar and they share many familiar styling cues. Granted, the 2020 Stingray is quite a bit wider than the 2019 model (the C8 measures 76.1-inches in width, 2.2-inches wider than the C7), and combined with the lack of the power bulge in between the headlights, there is a distinct whiff of supercar about it that’s lacking when you look at the C7’s front end. For reference, one of the Corvette’s (albeit much more expensive) rivals, the Ferrari 488 GTB, is 0.8 inches wider, so there’s not a lot of difference in width between the two.

    It was fun playing with the slide BUT, if you take that slide to a C6 you may draw the same conclusion. In other words the cars are not really that identical as you slide the slide one car is disappearing as the other car appears. I think this is one of those Optical DILUSIONS.In other words , The slide is an optical trick and the Author of this article is dilusional

      I'm definitely a fan of the fact that the C8 looks like a Corvette

        Which I think is the point. Just as the C7 still looked like a Corvette, in spite of being much different than the C6, the C8 still looks like a Corvette in spite of being much different than a C7.

          My point really is these cars are not alike at all. The Engineers do try to design these cars with the same dimensions yielding similar weights or less. But , when you look at the C8 as opposed to the C7 you definitely see Corvette Lineage .Same as comparing the C7 to the C6.

            I think we're saying the same thing. And so was the article.
