I’ve been meaning to post this excellent new C8 render from Chazcron and the MidEngineCorvetteForum.com since last week when the photo was first posted.
In the photo, Chazcron popped the Targa top out and added some details including red leather seats and a glimpse of the area behind them.
Chevrolet has been producing Corvettes with a one-piece removable roof panel since 1984, and prior to that, all 1968-1982 Corvettes were produced with removable t-tops. In the later models Chevy figured out a way to stow the tops inside the car and so we have to figure that this will be the case with the C8 Corvette.
Spy shots have identified the roof-lines for the Targa top and we figure the removal operation will be straight forward like the C7s. But it’s the storage aspects we’re still trying to figure out.
The three areas it could be stored in the C8 are the front trunk (frucnk!), a storage area between the engine and the rear fascia, or behind the seats. I doubt the frunck is large enough and that’s probably the same with any storage area in the rear hatch. The best bet would be storing it vertically behind the seats in a manner so that it couldn’t get scratched.
Here’s another version of the render with the MickyD wheels and a dark interior:
I think Chazcron’s latest render has reached some people who have been on the fence so to speak about the prospects of the Corvette moving to the mid-engine platform. If you are one of those who suddenly has taken an interest, let us know in the comments below!
