[PICS] Latest C8 Mid-Engine Corvette Renderings from FVS and the C8 Mid-Engine Corvette Forum


Now that the production versions of the C8 mid-engine Corvettes have blown off their covers and are now shown only wearing a camouflaged-patterned vinyl wrapper, FVS – the resident artist over at the MidEngineCorvetteForum.com – offers his latest take on next-generation sports car. As a bonus, he also throws in a couple of animated .gifs showing the hardtop convertible and the transformation of the C7 Z06 into the C8 Mid-Engine Corvette.

But first up is a new side rendering in Sebring Orange, Torch Red and a Pearlescent White. Here is FVS on this version:

I just completed a new side view rendering of the C8 Street Coupe we see in the track images. This new rendering is very accurate to the details that can be discerned from the images and some of the other info we know or think we know.

I think this is a fair representation of the car but things “could” change and details remain hidden… but not for long.!

And for some context, he dropped the C8 Corvette render onto the track with a Ferrari:

There is another side to the discussion of the current renders and how they compare to the Corvettes on the track. Some on the Mid-Engine Corvette Forum and elsewhere believe that Chevy is still concealing the final design of the side coves as well as the front and rear fascias. Before the C8.R was spied at Road America, the side coves of the C8s including the influential rendering by Car and Driver featured a more rounded design than the “Pac Man” style inlet spotted on the current prototypes.

There is quite a bit of discussion on this so if your interested head over to the MidEngineCorvetteForum.com

FVS also offers a render based on those discussions. He adds “I made this quick render to show the extended scoop as requested. It is similar to an earlier version I did.”

And finally, one last gif image, this showing the C7 Corvette Z06 morphing into the C8 Mid-Engine Corvette. That’s pretty cool, FVS!!

  1. I don’t know if it will be a better looking car? I am very anxious to see what it will look like in the flesh. I am also happy about the drivetrain change. Corvette is a fantastic car, platform, experience but this is overdue. There has been so much disscusion on the limits of this platform. Well? Let’s see what a totally new chassis, and technology can do?

  2. I gotta say that while FVS has done a fine job of attempting to piece together an accurate representation of the C8, the current rendering makes for one portly and unattractive vehicle. Here’s hoping that there are more faux panels to be removed from the prototype that make for a sexier, sleeker figure.

  3. I hope they will have some chrome/polished alloy wheels. I really don’t like black painted wheels. Personal thing but they look like they came from the junk yard. The C* does indeed look awesome. I’ve have many Corvettes and loved each one for various reasons.

  4. I would prefer a C8 without side vents at all, but they’re going to be on the car in some form or another. I’ll buy it anyway, but I have a small quiet voice in the very back of my mind that thinks this car will be called the Zora, For obvious reasons, and be made along side the current C7. I can’t explain why, but it’s just a small voice to go along with the sAmerican percentage points of a chance of that actually happening.

  5. Side scoop appears overstated….and front end should be sleaker without large intake openings , (understanding that it needs adequate cooling, ) but taper the nose down please.

  6. I gotta like the retractable panel in the middle picture that looks more like what the car will come with check out the video testing at Nuremberg that’ll give you an idea what it’ll really look like

  7. Why have a small window behind the front seat? If it happens, I hope the window is in a straight line (without an offset from front window to back).

  8. Side scoop appears overstated….and front end should be sleaker without large intake openings , (understanding that it needs adequate cooling, ) but taper the nose down please

    These comments and Richard Small’s statement about sums it up for me.
