So we’ve had this theory for a little while about a user on the Corvette Forum who goes by the name Corvette_Nut and his relationship with the Corvette production team. As the source of several spy photos and videos of the C8s on the streets from Detroit to California, it’s been our supposition that Corvette_Nut is on the team and has permission to selectively leak out favorable C8 content.
Now we have another example on why we should be paying attention to Corvette_Nut’s posts on the Forum.
A little over a week ago, Corvette_Nut started a new thread in the C8 section called I like what I am seeing. In that post was a single graphic and nothing else.
The graphic posted was a silhouette of a mid-engine sports car, complete with side scoop and spoiler that looks remarkably similar to the shape and design of the C8. You could also say it could be any mid-engine sports car, but one thing you can’t get away from is the fact that it looks very similar to the C7 Corvette’s silhouette that has been used previously in marketing and other aspects of identifying the C7 generation Corvette.
Another user named CrabbyJ at the forum immediately noticed the similarity to a Corvette Racing t-shirt in his closed and posted a photo of it. He then did his own photoshop work with the revised C8 graphic under it:
A few years ago at Corvettes at Carlisle GM handed out these CR7[sic] tee shirts. So with the above ME pic I made up the C8R update. Note it works because there are no wheels and is also yellow.
We can’t say definitively that the graphic is the C8, but my gut sure is telling me that this graphic is of the C8! Thanks for sharing, Corvette_Nut and keep them coming!
