  • fvs new interior rendering with revised details.

    Based on some updated eyewitness comments, this should be a bit closer but still not 100% I am sure the interior will look and feel new and advanced. This only places things in the general areas and depicts the features more or less as described.

    I took liberties with the cup holders and other details that were not described in detail ... There better be cup holders ! ; )

    Thank you very much fvs for this latest version. Excellent!

    How did we get to here? It started many months ago, as follows:

    Based on extensive input from Zerv02 and some others providing information, it could well be pretty close to what we see at the reveal. Certainly, it will have enough relevance to it, that it will look at least familiar when the car is revealed. But as fvs most often notes regarding his renderings, “GM will do 10 times better!”

    To get to this latest fvs version has been a many-step, evolutionary process. With the major commentary by Zerv02 and his sketch on Corvetteforum, fvs created the above rendering.

    1) However, this latest fvs interior rendering all started from the following initial sketch by Zerv02. After that, we have for months, read his subsequent extensive post commentary, his further descriptive information about the IP, and his many constructive critique’s of earlier renderings fvs and others have done.

    2) fvs’s consequent first C8 interior rendering:

    3) Then based on extensive feedback by Zerv02 elsewhere, here is the second version fvs created:

    One note about the immediately above render, is that the internet interest in the 2020 mid engine was/is so great, that on one great site, CorvetteBlogger, there were 30,000+ views of it.

    4) Zerv02 again provided specific critique regarding the proceeding render, leading to this next interior version in which xXColorShiftXx took that feedback, and then modified the above second interior fvs version as follows. Thanks you xXColorShiftXx for this next evolutionary step.

    5) Zerv02 noted a few specific things that could be improved in that latest xXColorShiftXx version above, and provided a second sketch which was certainly not proportional (per Zerv02), but gave us a few more clues, especially when coupled with his commentary elsewhere on what else needed to be done. Here was Zerv02’s second (last sketch).

    With the above commentary by Zerv02 and others, fvs created the above, current version of the ME’s interior. Again, unless we later get any more specific and creditable future feedback, this latest version will probably be as close until the ME’s reveal.

    Thank you fvs and all for getting us this far!

      Looks really nice, but the cup holders look out of place imo

          That’s pretty close to where the cup holders are in the C7. In the ME, there is neither a manual stick shift, nor an automatic lever, so the cup holders being where fvs put them, would not interfere with anything moving near there.

            Thank you xXColorShiftXx for being part of the rendering progression to get to this point!

              I would be very happy if my ME’s interior looked like this. Thank you fvs.

                Nice interior. Ditto what MidEngine said.
                Looking forward to our ME arriving.

                  I mean no offense but I prefered the 1st and 2nd one. Maybe its me, but something just looks off and unharmonious in this latest one.

                    Thank you for the effort but the area where the cup holder and other 4 items are located on this latest render just looks odd. The area is huge and the 5 items located on it look randomly placed with no harmony or reason. Not criticizing or trying to be mean but I certainly hope that area does not look like that.


                    • #11
                      I liked the larger center screen of the original one (and it is similar to Audi and some other high-end brands) but otherwise think the second one is great. I agree with fvs ... there better be cupholders (I spend a lot more time on roads than I do tracks ...). I thought where fvs had them was fine ... hopefully they can be deeper than the C5/6/7 since there is no driveshaft under them ... thanks again fvs!! Great work.


                      • #12
                        Yes, yes, they need to be much deeper than the C5’s,C6 and C7 ones which are a disaster in a sharp turn, or hard braking. Since that main center tunnel has wires, cooling tubes, and similar, and toward the center of the car has a fuel tank, I think they could use some of the tunnel underneath the cup holders to give us the functional ones we have wanted for decades!

                          ^^^ I agree with the above criticisms. The console area as described and drawn look very unbalanced and random. controls strewn all over. I cant or wont believe it actually looks like my rendering at all BUT the elements are there.

                          I am sure it will be one of the most comfortable and usable interiors of any ME produced at any price. I don't want something that needs to be babied or seats that don't recline at least a little. can't sit so straight up as some of these million dollar cars force you to... ; )

                            What is the flat screeen looking thing near the cup holders??


                            • #15
                              Don’t know. Zerv said it was a digital touch pad. No idea what it’s for
