  • New C8 Drawing

    Thanks Hanbin Youn, for your self-described “30 minute photochop.” Looking good! Though we are thinking your fun drawing is not your depiction of what it would look like, just your having a good time playing around, creating something different from what it will look like.

    Nevertheless you have succeeded, for big fun to look at it. Thank you. You are very skilled!!

    Now, this is how C8 should have been designed. GM should have hired this firm.

      Yes that looks awesome . It will be extremely interesting on how people will customize the new C8 ME.

        Great talent out there! Front fender vents AND rear fender scoops (which I think are closer to what we're going to see on 7/18)...interesting.

          That actually looks really good. Would love a design like that.

            It looks good, beautiful. As a picture of a car. As design direction, yup. But not fuctionally as an actual car that is to be driven. A functional design starts with the driver's outward vision. The best sports car greenhouse is the 720S . Must be easy, quick and effort free to see outside and all around out there. That is number one. This car has tank gunslits for windows, like the Camaro, but worse.

            Hope the C8 has vision facility like the 720S. And then look good, beautiful after taking care of the vision. Primary vision that is independent of mirrors and cameras. And not secondary camera systems offered as the primary means of seeing whats sneaking up in the adjacent lanes and elsewhere. Secondary cameras should serve as secondary backup.

            So the above looks good, beautiful. But for it to become a quality real car design (1 the belt line must be lowered [2 the greenhouse must be expanded (3 the driver's vision must be #1.

            IMO.

            But it is cute. Beautiful really. But the driver will never see a curb and suffer blindspot anxiety

                No. It is a “30 minute photoshop.” So 15 minutes more. A Masterwork. The drawing looks like the C8.

                I love the look of the C8 and intend to get one. But I do speculate that the C8 side windows and the rear windows should be maxed out, A.M.AP. But are not. Have not seen the final camo-free design yet. So who knows until 07.18.19
                But from what has been shown it seems that, the rear “C” pillar structure gives priority to the exterior beauty of the car at the expense of driver’s outward vision. If so then that is the wrong priority. IMO.
                IMO. The C8 side window should be cut as low as possible/practical, given window-down space and safety considerations. Max greenhouse. “See the curbs” kind of thing.
                IMO. The rear windows(s) and pillars should be designed for max driver vision. I think the 720s does that best[CarbonFiber?]. If C8 does not, then that is a wasted opportunity in a design created from scratch.
                Looks like C8 will offer an interior rear view mirror/camera as the primary rear driver vision. That should be a secondary vision option.
                The driver needs to be able quickly look and inform his situational awareness. And not be, by the design, required to waste time stretching and looking.

                But. I am an amateur.

                    Happy, Happy Birthday plus 1!

                    Relatedly who is not going to be at their own 50th Anniversary because he will be at the reveal? Yep, me — with my wife’s full blessing. She said, “You have GOT to go to the reveal.” So we cancelled our 50th Anniversary plans for our whole family, already we had made plans at a resort for all (thankfully we are the tiniest family with a total of 11 of us), then re-made them for the following week.

                    Do I have the most terrific wife!!!

                          Nice render. The shape of the 'frunk' is interesting because it sort of carries over the traditional 'power dome' hood design which has been a feature of Vettes since, well, pretty much forever.

                          I agree, but I fear the C8 is going to sacrifice some outward vision for style.

                            That is what the new rear-view camera is for. Pretty much eliminates blind spots and gives the driver a wide angle view right on the rear view mirror. This new technology is really going to help change exterior car design.
