ID:	42928 I started doing some detective work trying to visualize what was under those first rough c7 bodied mid engine mules driving around in the snow. Seems like only yesterday! Not really... seems like many years ago!.. ; )

    I dug up the very first rendering I made of a possible c8 Corvette based on the c7 and simply moving the cabin forward and stretching out the rear deck. I added a raised tail and spoiler similar to an F40 for fun. The talk at the time was that GM used the c7 as a base for the c8 and that it would share many design elements. So glad this was wrong... but still not a bad design. Looks like a C7 and f40 had a baby IMO... which is what I said about it over 2 years ago!

      You should have gotten an invite and a ticket to the reveal . And Chazcron too. I am sure that GM tried get it right. Still they blew it. Or, having missed that opportunity, they should simply reward you two guys with C8's. That is a thread of discussion that should be started, supported by the forum and heard by GM.

      Do I get am "Amen" out there anybody?

        They both have added so much to our C8 lives this past year. Can we even begin to imagine what it would have been life without their masterful artistry.

        Kudos to both fvs and Chazcron for as the camo became less, as we saw more revealing spy shots and similar, they keep refining their work to reflect our last known (believed to be known) C8 actual parameters. Their work kept getting more and more accurate.

        Thanks fvs for sharing your first versus last side renderings. Good for us to have a two year evolution to learn from. And ****, except for the spoiler which you have any control over, does your current car look so much better than its two year old version. Well done.

            The last two years have just flown by ....but these last two months haven’t. Then again at my age I want time to slow down. Thanks to the count down life has slowed down. Thanks for all the cool rendering you two. It’s been a hoot

                    Wow FVS... it’s cool to see side-by-side just how far the rendering has come. Nice job with the evolutionary process of your renderings.

                      just wanted to show this comparison.

                      Here is the c7 rear fender and door with a side scoop as we think the c8 will have.

                      I did not add any body features. This shows that if you keep the rear fender and door of the c7 and simply push in the rear portion of the door to create the coke bottle shape the scoop is naturally created without extending the rear fender at all.

                      This again shows that the scoop will not "stick out", but the door and inlet will "sink in"...

                        Bingo. Thaks fvs! You have been correct on this for over two years. For those who still have concerns, Chazcron separately did his analysis and also concluded that the bottom of the door, and/or maybe that front to rear horizontal ridge that it about 1’ above the pavement, sticks our a fair amount further than does the “door peak.”

                        As to visuals whether folks like it or not, that will be individually determined on on 7.18.19.
