The Chevy engineering team found itself in Findley, Ohio this week where everybody’s favorite Corvette_Nut finally provided the scoop we’ve been waiting for! Actually, it’s just a picture of the C8 Corvette’s side air intake scoop, but it’s still something we’ve been waiting for!
We’re big supporters of Mr. Nut here and we are very glad that he is able to provide these small but informative glimpses into the next generation Corvette. We’ve previously inquired as to his official status but Corvette team members we’ve talked to denied that they are leaking any video or pics. Nope, not them. We know, future product blah, blah, blah…
Some observations we have on the 11 photos and 2 videos posted below:
We get a better look at the silver five-spoke wheels and now can confirm they are the same design as the Black 5-spokes we’ve seen for quite some time. There’s also a view an all-black trident wheel (Mickey D wheel) as well. One of the C8s has no rear spoiler while others have the wing spoiler that some have indicated will be part of the Z51 performance package.
In one of the photos we see that the A-Pillars on a prototype are exposed showing what looks like Silver under the camo wrap. That may answer the question on whether the A-Pillers will be Black like the C7s or if they are body color on the C8s.
So enjoy these not-leaked-by-Chevy pictures and videos from a non-Corvette insider who has unprecedented luck in chasing down these C8 Corvette prototypes in multiple states.
And a couple recent videos from Corvette_Nut as well:
