  • What is Chevy hiding from us?

    I've been staring at the renders and the camo cars for hours. I'm convinced the whole rear air intake including the piece at the top of the door is completely misleading everyone.
    There's zero percent chance the door piece will be anywhere near that big. I think the intake will be repositioned too.

    I couldn't stop thinking about it, so I made a video on it. Curious as to what you think...

    I would suggest that yes there is a tremendous amount of camouflage on the side vent of the c8. I agree it protrudes outward way too far.

    There have been quite a few sketches that tame that part down...and still look awesome.


    there have been a few suggestions BY FORUM MEMBERS that the side vent on a vipers front fender is probably something more along the lines of what we will end up with...on the rear three quarter..reversed of course..l

    pedestrian safety etc..

    none of us know for sure until gm releases some new photos or until july 18th at 8 pm pacific time..

    chazrons sketches and fvs are very close to what we will see...depending of course which sketch you choose...

    the sketches are quite fabulous ...imo

    i enjoy seeing them evolve.

      Thanks Erick for putting this video together, We are all obviously speculating on what may be hidden under all of the camo. Time will tell. We all appreciate any input from all sources. Especially the great renderings. I myself have fallen in love with a few of the great renders. Hopefully as many of them have said in the past that the real deal will look much better. Wow, I am hoping that is the case.

        Thanks much Eric. In the written reveal invite I received, it explicitly states that the next generation “is the first mid engine Corvette.” For those who wish to re-visit the 13 official GM C8 pre-reveal; steps so far: https://www.midenginecorvetteforum.c...ine-and-events

        # 10 of those 13 steps is the only place I have yet seen GM call it a “mid-engine.”

        So agree that the door “peak” is going to change, but not sure it would totally be mounted completely on the rear fender. ???

        As to your question as to how accurate the renderings are, a two part, perhaps contrary to some, answer IMO. First, they are incredibly accurate overall, but second, even a 5% change to this feature, a 3% to the next component, and a 7% change to a third one would lead us to the written conclusions of all of the major renderers, i.e., “what GM will reveal, will be better.”


        I enjoyed your video!

          Thanks for video and analysis. Could be Chevy is hiding everything from us planning for a shocking surprise on July 18. Even the mules and spy shots could have been fabricated and are a part of the deception. For all I know, this render could be closer to the real thing:

            There is a lack of outrage on the c8 dct only because dct s are on ferraris, Lamborghinis, mclarens these days and since the transmission is not a torque convertor automatic we are not as upset as the supra fans...which only has one of the worlds best zf torque convertor automatic...

            good discussion analysis Eric.

              Also, most folks want automatic and most folks that want manual will be OK with a DCT automatic IMO. No outrage.

                It would be really disappointing if it turns out to be a continuously variable transmission.

                And I agree that the side scoops will be smaller and more elegant. The ones on the prototype mules (and most of the renderings) look unduly large. Big enough to house a family of feral cats.

                  It will not be a CVT.. It is a DCT. More than leaked documents, GM knows to make a case that the C8 is world class, it must be a DCT (and or additionally a manual trans is offered).

                  As to the scoop being “more elegant,” fine with me.

                    Guess Chevy hasn't hidden the DCT from us. Thanks John.

                      Ahh yes, I forgot to look at my invite before shooting! I Chazcron et all are amazingly talented artists. Their renders appear based on the camo bodywork we see. JB I think Viper style vents are probably more accurate than the crazy camo we see now. I keep staring and trying to figure out what's going on. Only 6 more weeks till we see it in person. Looking forward to meeting any forum members who will be at the event.

                        I've been questioning the side vent since very early on, especially the part on the door.... that being said, we shall see what we see when GM shows us

                            Erick, Here’s the answer to your question about “Does that sound like a manual to you”. Yes, it sounds exactly like a manual transmission. It’s a 4-speed in a 1961 Corvette. Please go to



                            and you’ll see and hear Zora explaining what he is driving. I get goose bumps every time I hear it. Enjoy.
