  • Red, White & Blue C8 360 Spin Renderings Thanks To Chazcron

    Chazcron modestly writes that he has screwed up the taillights, but they sure look very consistent with the Motor1 high res pictures we saw a couple of days ago.

    OK, folks, here's a triple, All-American red, white, and blue 360º spin render. I know the taillights are a bit messed up, but I felt it was time for another one of these. I also extinguished the grille light bar for this one.
    Here a screen print of each (sorry they are not precise because of my equipment) though for full viewing in Chazcron’s typical total clarity, his wonderful video is below.

    Great work. Nice angles on each of the 3 colors. I hope you're close on the front and sides. Still not a big fan of the rear end look. Can't put my finger on it....it's purely an aesthetics issue with me.
    Thanks, Chazcron!

      Part of the lack of love for the rear that more than a few now feel, is that a) it is still heavily disguised under even the NRing appearing-single-zebra camo vinyl, and b), taking a picture of every car’s rear end from a height of roughly 12” inches above the pavement is typically highly unattractive.



      I am not being critical of Chaz, for it you look at automedia pictures and renderings, you see highly disproportionate numbers of them using this same 12-18” above pavement perspective. Just my personal bias that as our eyes are typically 60” above pavement, and thus we should therefore see the more car pictures and renderings taken from that height.

      Chazcron’s rear rendering from a 60” height are far more appealing to me, and again Chazcron is reflecting what GM has given us to look at — at least as camoflaged by GM’s “Masters of Disguise.”

          I’ll agree the rear just looks wrong to me no matter which photo or render I’ve seen. Hope the reveal gives us a big surprise.
          There is a madness to my method!

            I’ve thought for some time now, in everyone’s renderings, they look to carry a similar curve of the rear quarters into deck lid and rear facia as the 2019 Camaro?

            I actually like it, good job Chaz!

                I've always been a Crystal Red, Long Beach Red buyer....but agree, the blue really rocks this rendering.

                    Here’s the big surprise we will later see, that you and I and most will really like the rear of the C8.

                    Big smiles ahead...

                      The rear looks great to me! It's always important to keep in mind that viewing a 3D object in a 2D photo or render, when you haven't actually seen the object in the real world, makes it really hard to judge. When you see a pic of a C7, your brain fills in the missing dimensionality, because you know what it looks like in reality. When you look at these renders, your brain can't do that. If you had never seen a ball before, and someone showed you a photo of one, you'd be completely at a loss to understand what it really looks like.

                        Valid point and one we all need to keep in mind... no matter which side of the fence your on, your opinion may change once you actually see it in person.

                        Nice thing the 3D rendering has done for me, is maybe saved me from picking the wrong color. The white being close to what I imagine silver, so I'm now thinking I need to go with a darker or Bold color like the orange.

                          Immediately after the C7’s reveal, as I do after each new generation is debuted, I make volunteer presentations to Corvette clubs roughly within 250 miles of where I live. Typically at those presentations, while 99% had already seen at picture or a video of the C7, when I asked how they felt about it, 30% responded that did not like it. I told them all that once they walked around the car, that the percentage who did not like it would drop to 10% of less, And funny to me, in every group I could hear someone (sometimes many more) muttering out loud, “bull ****.” To this day, at almost every car show I go to (which I have to admit is not that many any more), someone will come up to me and say something like, “I was in the audience when you made the C7 presentation, and I did not like the car at that time even though I had seen pictures of it; I though you were full of it when you said most of us would love the C7 when we walked around it once, and ‘you want to come over and see my C7’” —their pointing their C7 down that row, or otherwise on the show grounds?

                            Candidly, I am not expecting those numbers with the C8. I expect that when I ask that question, 40% will not like the C8 even though they had seen it in pictures at or after the reveal, but even after their walkaround, that first year, at least 25% will not. But if I asked that identical group two years after they were routinely seeing C8’s in their area, that 25%, IMO, would drop to around 15%.

                            With the mega thousands of brand conquests who buy their first Corvette as a result of how the C8 looks, performs and its price, I think GM will be very happy with the lines wanting to purchase their first Corvettes, and the lines of those of us who are repeat buyers.

                            As one personal change, the C8 will be the first Corvette generation that instead of our only getting one, we are getting a year one entry model, and returning to get a year three Z06.

                              I hope you're 110% correct about the body aesthetics, John. What's that saying? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder---
                              Although I have my preferences for each Corvette generation, there isn't any of them that I dislike. Love the C2....probably because it was my first vette. Definitely excited to see the C8 but as I have said previously, the journey is the fun part. Once it's here....all the artistry, what-if'ing and sleuthing will be over. Of course the other half of fun begins...
