    Does This Change Your Opinion?

    Yes Nut it does. The first one certainly does appear to be the reported wide body and the other seems to be the narrow standard body. The two black corner vent inserts at the front fascia with the horizontal rib now makes sense. And the center vent and filler panel in red body color also now making more sense. Good catch !!

      I will take one of each. I remain of the opinion that we will only be getting the regular-width body (a la the C7 Stingray), in 2020, yet look forward to a wide body version in year 2 or 3.

      ’At the same time, based on tire width sizes for many other exotics, it is unlikely, IMO, that the wide body version (car width being alone considered) will be anything more than a wider rear intake scoop, that the front fender will remain the same (for only a typical +10mm for higher performance versions of most exotics, and GM will avoid that $2M tooling costs alone for just 2/5” extra front tire width. Best guess for the rear fender greater width is 1/2” wider on each side.

      Yet, I am expecting lots of other visual changes for the wide body version, including it having hood ducts, larger front splitter, different front grill, aforementioned wider rear quarter primary intakes, bigger rear spoiler, more aggressive rear diffuser, and perhaps more.
