Corvette Racing’s Doug Fehan has famously talked about “Cascade Engineering” in which each generation takes what it has learned from racing and applies it to improve the next generation street car which improves the next generation’s race car, and so forth and so on.
The phrase of “Cascade Rendering” came to me tonight after seeing these new renders of the C8 Corvette from Chazcron and the Mid-Engine Corvette Forum.
Using real spy photos over the last few months, Chazcron has managed to piece together a fairly accurate render of the C8 Corvette based on the feedback he has received. And with each new batch of spy photos that reveals new details, they end up improving Chazcron’s next renders as he works those new elements into his designs.
These two renders are based on the new spy photos from Detroit that revealed more details of the C8’s headlights and taillights.
That color is bright and guaranteed to wake you up for sure! The current Sebring Orange has been pretty popular and we expect it to be carried over to the first year of the C8s. But I could see how an Orange Sunrise or Daytona Orange Sunset could look really good on this car. The factory has been painting with 10 colors but has a capacity for 12. It will be interesting to see what new shades might be offered on the 2020 Corvette.
Got any guesses? Let us know in the comments below or head over to the MidEngineCorvetteForum.com and jump into the conversation with other C8 enthusiasts.
