  • c8 rear - paint shop image

    Here is a revised rear end that follows the paint shop image better.

    The details and shaped surfaces are a bit different than the first rendering. Note the ins and outs of the surfaces and angles.

    Also note that the bottom edge is essentially straight and flat IMO. It does not rise up in the center and is taller ( more black area) than the first.

    If you compare the paint shop image you see the center area, the Superman symbol shaped area protrudes and projects outward and rearward... bulging out in the center to follow the top view rounded shape.

    This bulge and the angle of the rear clip in the image makes it "appear" to rise up in the center but it does not IMO. It is straight and flat... kore like the C7. The black being slightly taller also narrows the color area and makes the rear look slimmer.

    I also adjusted some of the angles and surfaces to better follow the camo and paint shop shapes.

    I added Chaz' rear render to illustrate the differences and appreciate his tremendous efforts in bringing the c8 t life in 3d !

    I think this is a bit closer to what we will see July 18th.

    What do you think?

      That looks really good. Thank you fvs!

      Additionally, with the natural perspective of most adults’ eyes averaging 5’ above the ground surface, and thus looking down onto the car, I believe the greater curvature of the C8 (side to side along the top of the fascia), will become even more pronounced.

      I circled on the BGA fascia picture the air gap we have consistently seen on the camo’d cars. I believe that GM’s more sophisticated aero modeling and testing has shown them the advantages of both a wing spoiler (ZR1 both large and small wing versions), and having an air escape slot at the base of the spoiler to reduce drag more than a continuous side-to-side, near vertical wicker-bill as I have on my stage 3 Z06 spoiler.

        Boy would I love for that circled area to be an aero gap for active wing... but unfortunately I think it is for the brake light as seen in the camo cars.
        There is a gap above this one under the spoiler known as the mail slot!

            You are right FVS and we wait for the mail person to deliver the mail in the slot in just 27 more days.
            Enjoying my Shadow gray C8. What a car it is.

              I hope that "mouth" shaped license plate recess isn't accurate.

              And I don't think the bottom of the painted piece actually curves up toward the center as you show it. I think the reason it looks that way in the photo is because we're not looking at it straight on.The part is hanging such that the bottom edge is closer to the camera than the top. The part the looks higher in the center is actually, I think, sticking out more to the rear of the car. I'm not saying this well. I think the center section is raised relative to the outside areas of the fascia, and since we're seeing it from the bottom it looks like it's higher.

                I agree with you. That’s what I tried to depict with the latest image. Chas actually had the center of the lower facia come up higher in the middle due to this perspective. I think I explained it in my notes at the top

                The blue c8 image is one of Chas‘s that was altered by another member slightly. So even though better is not correct.

                Here is a revised rear end that follows the paint shop image better.
