  • ME Side “Character Lines”

    I didn’t notice earlier the front-to back, near continuous, side body character lines. These two pictures were earlier posted by and credited to Corvette_Nut. Then Tom 73 pointed out some very interesting continuous, same plane, side creases (in is his oval markings). Thank you both! This thread material thanks to posters on Corvetteforum in their “C8 picture thread.”

    [Quote=Tom73]First time I have noticed, or payed any attention to these body lines that run from the taillight to the front fender.

      Helpful additional commentary from “General _Tso” regarding the above two pictures.

      [Quote=General_Tso]Those are on the production car. They look beautiful and seamless specially from behind or a rear quarter look. The side scoop almost seems to disappear and the body runs the entire length of the car.

      Then he added this additional picture and commentary.

      Thank you General Tso!

        Im not so sure. That line is mighty straight. It would mean that boxy scoop cover has a hard straight and flat edge which I doubt at this time.

        Could be wrong.

          Could be those straight side character lines are more of the GM Masters of Disguise still playing with us.

          I just have the feeling we are in for quite of few surprises a month from now — and in a positive way.

            And I must say that IMHO... in these photos/views, the top line/shape of the C8's rear quarter is more akin to the C1, C2 and/or C3's rear quarter than any of the latest generations.

            Notice how its curve comes back down towards the rear fascia... versus the later generation's more continuous straight line. Or maybe I'm just seeing things.

            If it indeed is the actual line, it's a nice nod to past styling.

              FrankLP, you are seeing the future accurately, that we will see, approximately, a C2 front fender and a C3 rear fender on the C8. We heard that most recently from C8UR911.

              Ed Welburn, on whose watch the C8 was design-wise finished, is known for resurrecting great Corvette shapes from the past.

              And why some therefore are looking at the C1 cove shape, the Aerovette’s scoop and wondering if they portent the C8’s side scoops.

                I agree with those that believe we are in for a bigger surprise on July 18. I had a hard time adjusting to the c7 in January 13. I am starting to have same feelings. My c7 is getting more appealing to me.

                  Comparing the car you have and love, to an unknown future one, I sure understand your hugging your C7.

                    Do you like this pic? If so, you’ll like the rear quarter on the C8. This old man lives on in the C8

                      Definitely a disguise. The whole car is disguised. We are in for a surprise. I sure hope so. I am actually not that fond of what I have seen . TOO BOXY. Square tail pipes, ???Definitely not appealing
