  • C8 Corvette Spotted in Traffic - Video

    A quick encounter with a C8 Corvette was captured and uploaded to YouTube. We think it was probably spied in the Detroit area but that's just our guess.

    The guy that took the video also does a nice frame-by-frame recap on the video so enjoy!

    Interesting that the reveal date has been taped over

      I notice the scoop is much skinnier and flatter than some of the heavily camo’d ones. Much nicer look.

          Thanks Keith for sharing the video. Ditto that next month will be the end of a long, long wait for us all. Yesterday, I was reminded by “skank” that when we officially started we were over 90 days until the reveal, now just 37 more.

          Aleak or a major set of GM teaser videos would be very nice to help tide us over.

            I hope at the reveal, GM will tell us the power specs, weight, hopefully a starting price and what models will be sold in the first year.

              You'd think that GM Marketing could've/would've been able to film/produce 5 (or more) video teasers, so that they could release 1 each week leading up to this historic date/event! I actually thought we were going to see more than we have by now.

              That second "teaser" really was more of an explanation of the first video. IMHO it really didn't provide any additional, significant excitement or intrigue.

              Nonetheless, I was (and will be) excited to see anything official from The General!

                They want to go with a big bang. I bet even these rendering is ruining their big bang to some extend.

                  What I wonder if more periodic releases of teaser information was GM’s original plan, but then leaks of the CAD drawings, leaks of the front and rear fascia pictures within BGA, leaks of the model being called a Stingray (not talking about the Carscoops picture of the seat waterfall but the GM Workbench Connect screen prints showing us that there is gong to be a 2020 Stingray model with the codes of 1YC07, and 1YC67), and lastly the Canadian GM WorkBench Connect leaks of the supposed cars specs, might have GM thinking that as there are also so many pieces of accurate info out already, we need to save the rest for the reveal? If any of that is accurate, maybe GM originally have been planning to share every week for ten or more, a teaser video, yet before all those leaks started?

                  Or is some of what we feel are real leaks, instead their not being accurate, and instead more like “out the side door, wink-wink” planned partially accurate or deliberately inaccurate info?

                  My head Iike everyones,’ is dizzy with all the what-ifs.

                    They are slowly starting to show the real shape of the side intakes. I have a feeling that they will be a lot closer to what we saw on the C8.R

                      It may be wishful thinking on my part, but it doesn't appear the front grill opening is blocked off as much as we've seen in the past.

                        Might we see a front grille totally opening as in the picture taken in BGA in October, 2017?

                        With of course an insert provision for those whose states require a front LP.

                          I certainly hope so. I cut the plate down to fit within the opening of our C6 and also the one on our ZL1. I used the lower Aero mount on the C7, and will do whatever is needed to give the C8 an acceptable look short of leaving the plate off.

                            With our new Conservative government elected in my home Province of Ontario there is talk about abolishing the front license plate requirement. I hope it happens by the time I take delivery because I don't wanna drill any holes in the front of my new C8!

                              Agree. The side scoops are going to be a key design element for this car, and I don't see them racing a car that is dramatically different in that design from the street car. Of course, I'm just speculating.
