  • -- new C8 Stingray Interior pics --

    Here, thanks to Carscoops are a few new interior pics that appear to have been taken during the same time as the last set. These show a perspective in the drivers seat and reveal a few new things:
    1. The shifter
    2. A 'Z' button to the left of the airbag on the steering wheel
    3. The knob next to the shifter is not for the infotainment system, but instead is for driving mode
    Thank you Carscoops for today’s picture joy. They have additional interiors pictures on their sites if you would want at:

    Very nice looking... I like what we can see so far! Thanks for sharing.

      Interesting how the images still crop out the top dead center marker on the steering wheel.

      To my eyes the C8 interior looks like it will be a significant improvement over the C7's and even the switchgear looks unusually good for a GM product.

      Note, the above steering wheel controls are dummies and not the final quality, as can be seen from these PPV spy photos:

        Very nice indeed ! Thank you for sharing. That screen on the side is HUGE

        All those buttons on the right side of the console will get stepped on by my puppies.

        Any ideas on a plastic molding to prevent that anyone ? ( I just might have to fashion something out of a plastic container with a sharp knife and then sand the cut edges to place over the things they can step on. )

        Right now, my puppies are always actively engaging my air conditioner and emergency flasher at odd moments.....So much so that I check it constantly, even more than my speed.

        ..........."Sorry Officer, my puppies stepped on my flasher and i wasn't looking at my speed"

          Thanks smoove7410, The layout looks good, but that steering wheel- I get why they made it oblong so good visibility to the screen while driving straight. But it's really fugly. Is it me or do the new steering wheel pics look really oblong compared to the older pics?

            I hope that Z button is to change drive modes like a Sport or Track setting that also changes the exhaust note. Anyone see the front axle lift button? I need to remember to press that! LOL

              I noticed that - maybe a shift light / digital tachometer?

                Having a flattened top of the steering wheel will become clear once we get to sit in the car, for to making it rounded and curving upward would have resulted in it being in our line of sight looking at corner apexes (since the hood itself is short and slopes downward dramatically).

                Visible functionally won out. I believe we will quickly get used to its look, but will be get used to how it feels as we turn the wheel to make that apex, or to to run an urban 90 degree corner?

                  Can we imagine how sick we would be at ourselves if forgetting to press that button costs us $2,000+ because we destroyed our visible CF splitter. — for it is my plan to lower my C8 even more than I did our C7.

                    Hopefully GM copied BMW's "M" button when they designed the "Z" button. The driver can customize the "M" button for any mix of steering, suspension, throttle, transmission, and exhaust settings.

                    Hopefully we get at least two customized "Zora" sets that we can select by repeatedly pressing the "Z" button. I'd like one set for cruising and one for twisty back roads.

                    Funny thing, I cannot find the start button in any of the C8 interior shots. I see what looks like a power button for the infotainment system but no ignition button.

                      Tesla has GPS-based ride height control that can remember where ride height needs to be higher. Perhaps the C8's front lift system will also be programmable to various GPS coordinates?

                        Maybe, but since shift lights can go in the HUD I suspect something something more like this:

                          FVS was right... there are vertical buttons along the right side!

                            GM has filed a potential.C8 patent that includes sensors reading pavement height. You could well be spot on.

                              True. You can actually faintly make out a ring in the black interior pictures. If it is just a trim piece, it likely has some branding on it as they taped it over along with the corvette logo and Z button.

                              I may be in the minority, but I like the steering wheel.
