    Chaz’s thoughts about whether the “door blade” exists or not

    Originally posted by Chazcron
    Ok people, then how do you think they open the door? To me it looks like the dark oval is the perfect place reach under to not only activate the door opening, but also to pull on the door. Yes, that does look like a bolt, but what is it really? Where do you suppose, in the "bolted on camofake piece, does one reach through to the allegedly covered real handle to actually open the door? Oh, of course, some complicated door handle extension device was engineered, very expensively, all in the name of disguising the scoop shape which could never, EVER, POSSIBLY creep onto the door itself. And this quaint notion of an obtuse disguise was all done instead of actual real world testing of the door handle function.

    I can admit that I may be COMPLETELY WRONG, there may not be a blade, (and it would look fine with or without it) but consider Occam's razor.

    I am PUTTING BACK the blade, now swept back in a straight equal width body colored shape (black plastic standard, carbon fiber extra).

      Beautiful renders, now i'm thinking I gotta go red. I'd be happy if it really looks like that... blade too I guess.

            Looks great, as always.

            I'm curious to see if Chevy will also include a strip of chrome onto the front fascia of this car like they tend to do with all of their other ones. I could see them doing it on those red lines in the front grill. It would be a similar idea to the C7 Stingray.

            Don't get me wrong...I'm not a fan of chrome accents, but I believe Chevy is and I could see them bringing it over to this car as well.

            I'm also realizing that it doesn't appear like there are a lot areas on the rear of the car that the C8 crossflags logo could go. I suppose maybe under the licence plate (just above that black mesh vent area) but...that would look a bit tramp-stamp-ish to me if it was that low.

              That’s beautiful! But I still HATE the whole idea of the blade protruding from the door. If the C8 actually has one like that, I’ll have to see it on the actual car, before making any final judgement.

                Agreed. Unless it's made of some sort of flexible material that will absorb dings and protect the door!

                  Ummm, assuming it's similar to the C6 & C7, the door latch is controlled by a electrical touchpad. It would be very easy to temporarily add another touchpad in a slightly different spot. No complicated mechanism needed, it's just an electrical signal. Then it's just a matter of making the camo strong enough to so people can pull on it to open the door.

                  Edit: Not saying that's what's going on, just offering an alternate take.

                  Edit 2: P.S. thanks for the amazing renders! You're making it more difficult to wait for July 18th!

                      I hope the spoiler is optional. I hate it.

                        WBT, many, many on this forum are also not loving the spoiler, at least as it appears to be currently presented. Might it look very different with it has all of its camo removed. At least you and I sure hope so.

                          Good renderings.
                          .

                          Well,, that is what that guy with the blue suit coat , did , when he opened the door for that woman. -

                          he reached his hand, way up underneath, that protrusion on the door. -

                          and he either: Pulled some kind of lever

                          or : He pressed a button.


                          Then he pulled on that protrusion.

                            So, what's with that spoiler than many (including myself) don't like it? Is it the curve, is it how it attaches to the body? I can't put my finger on it, yet I don't like it.
                            Amazing how you don't (or you do ) like something but can't explain it why.

                              The spoiler we have so far seen, has inches of deliberately ugly camo on it, kinda of looking like mid-shaped paper mache that I did in early grade school. I am still hoping we could well be in store for a nice upside surprise in 49 more day.s
