  • Small Spoiler ME Pictures

    We have seen a couple of pictures of the C8 with the small spoiler. I thought that since there is so much interest in that among many of us, that we could use this thread as a collector for such pictures. Please do not include either any comments about nor any pictures of the more commonly pictured C8 wing spoiler. Thank you,.

    This first one came from an ILW sighting north of Detroit. Credit and thanks to rhurren505.

    These second picture is thanks to “GundamXZX.” If anyone knows its original source, using TinEye.com I tried to find it, to credit and thank them, but so far to no avail.

    Looking at car # 2, it looks as if it does not even have the small/short blade spoiler we have seen before — but of course that could be an angle/perspective illusion.

    I like the clean aesthetic look of the C7 without anything more than its entry small HTMSL center spoiler. Might we get a similar C8 option? I hope so.

    If so could it look like the flat rear deck of the NSX?

      Looking forward to the final reveal...i believe active aero could be a solution we also enjoy.

      Thanks for posting up. Gives us hope we can achieve a clean smooth look for the c8.

        There doesn't seem to be any spoiler on this convertible - I'd like that option GM.

          As stated ealier, I'm not a fan of the larger spoiler, but you never know. It may be waay better integrated into the design that the camo cars show. I was washing the C7 yesterday and realized that the car does have a high to low curve, albeit slight, from rear 1/4 to center-line. The third brake light hides it somewhat, and the Z51 spoiler takes it away visually ... I like the C7 Z51 look ... the NSX pic just above is also ok ... just me of course.

            Another small spoiler picture. Nice also that is shows that compared to a medium sized SUV, this is one low sports car. From all we can scale, the height of the C8 is just a little less than the C7’s 48.6”.

              Good point John. With most drivers preferring CUV/SUV Van's etc.. this car is going to be a serious blind spot concern! Consider this pic above, a quick glance by the van driver might not even realize a car is next to them. Going to require some real defensive driver strategy to keep the car visible to other drivers.

                Driving with all my lights on has probably saved our lives many times. And like you, I drive assuming no other drive ever sees us (in every one of our vehicles).

                  Same here - I always try to minimize time in my neighbor's blind spots.

                    Where I live, the school buses have a flashing strobe light mounted on the roof. Wonder if I could mount one to my C8.

                    With 45 years of riding motorcycles under my belt, I too expect not to be seen.

                      Back to the subject at hand....

                      We haven't seen a car with no spoiler except possibly covered with black cladding. But there have been a couple of renders of no-spoiler C8s, and if they're accurate I think the small spoiler as pictured above would be my choice.

                        As noted, we never hang out in a blind spot — on either side. Especially critical once when during the 2009 National Corvette Caravan in our black C5, when a tractor trailer with two trailers was going around a right hand curve while he was in the right hand lane, going up a steep hill, then decided to pull out and pass an even slower tractor trailer in front of it. We almost got killed in this exact circumstance approaching the Eisenhower tunnel in the Rockies, as we were almost squished against the center concrete Jersey barrier.

                        As we all know, defensive driving is always critical in our Corvettes
