  • fvs chasing a c8 - c8 rear view

    ok,,, I couldn't stay away... so sue me... ; )

    I wanted to see what the rear view would look like when balanced with the camo cars.

    I used a c7 rear view to balance the canopy and body. Thanks to Chazcron for the base rendering. Should be close.

    I also show what it may look like to be following a c7 down the road...

      Hopefully those aren't the real exhaust tips..... Otherwise, looks fantastic!

        Wow, I am really surprised at how many people comment about the exhaust tips.

        They should’ve went with parallelograms anyway. Rhomboids. Would’ve went with the angles of the car better in my opinion

          I think we will have a nice exhaust tip surprise on 7.181.19.

            Tips ?

            I'm hoping we get a more aggressive rear bumper that matches the rest of the car. Honestly, not digging the "current" one. But who knows, everything is mere "speculation" at this point

              The exhaust tips we have seen on every mule look to me to be identical to some productionCadillac models, so easily available from that parts bonus, and ever since our first C8 sighting have been a “distraction in plain sight.”. They could so easily be changed for the production version, so as fvs and others have noted, their shape does not fit the car’s shapes and angles.

              I and many others are hoping for an exhaust tip surprise on 7.18.19

                  Yep, fvs has OCD like the rest of us, e.g., Obsessive Corvette Disease. No known cure. Rumor has it that the C8 will continue to create more OCD’s.

                    I finally came around to buying a C7 . But, I have to admit , when I first saw the rear of the C7 I did not like it. I had the square tip exhaust and the square rear end is not that appealing. Though I have a refundable pre order deposit I may very well decide not to buy the c8. I love the front renderings. The rear , not so much. But, have to admit FVS and Chazcron have done wonderful jobs.

                      Couldn't agree more with your thoughts on the rear of the car in renderings. Really appreciate the great work by FVS and Chazcron, but sure hope the rear at reveal looks more balanced with the rest of the car, which appears to me as potentially beautiful.

                        Two dimensional views of either the C7 or the C8 are not flattering If take of the rear fascia taken right behind the car. In comparison, look at how curvy the C8’s rear fascia is compared to the C7’s when not right behind it. There is far more curvature to the C8’s fascia than the C7’s (the latter which when I took my 6’ level). I believe that if we could today put the same 6’ level in a comparable position parallel to the rear fascia, at the same waist height), that the distance from the level in the outside corners would be more than twice as much for the C8 than the C7.

                        This second video in this thread shows this very well. Bottom line is clear to me (but maybe not to others), that if you could cope with the C7’s flat rear fascia, you will be dancing with joy over the greatly-more-rounded C8’s butt.

ID:	42371 Those sharp angular lines on the C8 are left over from the C7. The bankruptcy caused the C8 to be put back on the shelf . So we got the FE C7 In its place .The sharp angular lines on the C7 are design cues that the C8 had until it was shelved . It is what it is and those sharp angular lines will be on the rear of the C8. FVS is probably very close with his rendering

                            Great work, FVS, but the Nürburgring cars showed the rear fascia isn't straight like that:
