Folks, the “pack man” side intake styling is 100% fraud. It’s fake as can be. Take a close look at the photos. You can clearly see the fake thin layer of paneling on the camo car (first photo). It is taped right over. The C8.R was intended to throw us ALL off and it almost worked. The cat is now out of the bag. The real side intake styling is seen on the last photo poking out through the black tarp. The fake panel is not on the black tarp car

    You welcome. FVS...get hot.

    You need to go back over to CF. If you're going to start your BS here then I'm sure a nice fat petition to ban your *** won't take much effort. Not going to turn this forum into the same garbage as the others. You don't like the car...FINE. Then get lost. This forum isn't for you.

      what are you talking about? Are you serious? I am simply saying the panel is fake. What is the problem?

        They are definitely throwing us off about a few things, but I don't think that they'd trick us about that design. Sure they may not look exactly like that, but if you look at the spyshots from other angles, you can see that there are indeed big side intakes.

          Yes, there is an intake, of course. What I am saying is that the “pac man” shape is fake. It is clearly a (great) tape job. Look closely at the photos I provided.

              Ok ok...I see what you're sayin. Can definitely see the difference. Thought you were going on a GM/Corvette bashing rant.

                Glad this thread is back on track, politely debating facts. Let us please keep attacks on GM as “BS” off the forum, and please, no petitions are ever going to be needed, for I and the two moderators can handle things ourselves.

                Thank you all for returning this thread to the civility shown in the directly above post, and on that basis, it remains open...

                  Are you on CorvetteForum? We’ve been over that multiple times there, just fyi.

                  But, looking at this situation some more, the C8.R intake looks like a high possibility. The top part of the intake on the C8.R extends far past the bottom part, much due to the steep angle of the bottom. If you look at today’s spy shots, you’ll see the same top part that sticks out, but the bottom of the intake is covered by the fake part.

                  When you look at the C8.R, the intake opening seems to form a sharp vertex, but there’s a black line in the camo at that vertex which makes it hard to tell if A) that is actually a vertex, or B) the bottom of the intake is fake and the upper line curves downward along the black line in the camo(below the supposed vertex).

                  EDIT: to be clear, I agree that there is camo concealing the true intake shape on today’s spy shot cars.

                    They are still hiding some design cues, like the exact styling of the side intake scoops.

                      We have collectively concluded that the exact styling of the side scoops is being hidden by GM, that there is extra padding on the front fascia, extra on the rear fascia, on the reck deck, surrounding the halo bar, and for sure that they are still massively hiding the buttresses on the HT convertible..

                      This might sound like I am a traitor, but I do not blame GM for keeping some mystery afoot. At tomorrow morning’s Corvette staff meeting, they will reading some of our posts aloud and laughing — though I will bet some of their laughter is nervous laughter, for we keeping getting closer and closer to the prize!

                      And maybe someone there asks, “should we move the reveal up closer?”

                        Take a look at these two pictures. You can clearly see the real panel sloping backward and disappearing under the fake panel. I am certain the real panel is what’s poking through the black tarp on my first post. I think the intake styling of the C8.R was a decoy intended to throw us off. Click image for larger version

                          Abo****ely. Would not put it past GM to do exact that. As would every other manufacturing trying to keep their most important reveal in 50 years away from their customers before they are ready to release it on their terms..

                          Collectively, we have so incredible brains, eyes, knowledge and talent here! We are doing our best to dissect and learn about every part of the car, while GM is trying to keep out prying eyes and trying to keep our minds distracted with all sorts of camo tricks. There are even GM employees whose full time jobs are designing/constructing camo parts/systems keep our eyes off the prize.

                            We can only hope haha. We are definitely getting close.

                              So it makes me wonder if GM did this on purpose to see what the response would be. If received well they could easily add that "fake" section to the existing design. If not...then they just don't add it. Personally I like it as it reminds me of the Aventador. But the original design, from what we can tell, looks good too.
