Back in early October we brought you the very first render of the C8’s interior from a designer named FVS over at the MidEngineCorvetteForum.com. In that first render, FVS worked to recreate a render from the rough sketch by ZERV02 who claimed on the Corvette Forum to have seen the interior.
That first render was sort of all over the place, but since then more eyewitnesses have come forward to add to the discussion. So based on those comments, FVS recently put out a revised render that (*queue the angel choir*) includes cupholders! It seems that the lack of cupholders was the #1 complaint of the first render we posted and shows just how much a beverage holder in the car is important to people.
The new interior shows the Start/Stop button in red and under it is some sort of digital trackpad/touchpad for adjusting the car’s settings. Under the cupholders (did we mention the cupholders?), we find the Drive Mode selector knob and next to it is the electronic parking brake switch. Running up the divider between the driver and passenger seats are the buttons for the seat fans and heat plus whatever other driver controls that may be needed such as hazard lights.
Here’s the new C8 Mid-Engine interior render from FVS:
The latest FVS render evolved over the last months based on the original sketch from ZERV02’s August posting on the Corvette Forum. You can see the first render from FVS following it.
Then based on extensive feedback by ZERV02 elsewhere, here is the second version FVS created:
ZERV02 again provided specific critique regarding the proceeding render, leading to this next interior version in which another forum user named xXColorShiftXx took that feedback, and then modified the above second interior FVS version as follows:
FVS is always quick to say the real thing will be 100x better than anything he is doing. But as we wait for the real thing, its fun to think of all that it may come with and artists like FVS help to visualize those concepts. So what are your thoughts on these interior renders?
