Over the last year we’ve featured a number of digital renderings of the C8 Corvette from the likes of FVS, Chazcron, bdsvavars and others who put in a huge amount time to help Corvette enthusiasts imagine what the next generation Corvette might look like.
With Thursday’s reveal of the C8 Mid-Engine Corvette in California, coverage of the new Corvette will dramatically shift from rumors and speculation to a more fact-based analysis based on the release of official information. The C8 Corvette prototypes will be shedding their camo and we’ll soon see undisguised cars in full color roaming the countryside leading up to the start of production.
It’s been a wild ride and I especially want to thank Chazcron for his dedication in trying to craft the most accurate C8 renderings as possible. This week, Chazcron put out what he calls his 2020 Corvette supercut video featuring his work on the C8 over the last few months. It’s been a fun journey as we recognize many of the renderings we’ve shared here at CorvetteBlogger.com while seeing some new ones that we may have missed along the way.
Chazcron writes this description about this body of work:
Here it is, days before the official reveal by Chevrolet, a chronological supercut of my many renders of a 2020 Corvette C8 from a 3D model that I started in November of 2018. Originally created in Animation: Master, it was converted it to a Blender model with the help of a fellow modeler/renderer named Daniel, to whom I am greatly indebted. Many thanks as well to John Elegant at MidEngineCorvetteForum.com for his constant encouragement and to many of the members at that forum and CorvetteForum.com.
Although we expect to see new renderings of possibly the Z06 or ZORA models from Chazcron and others in the future, it sort of feels like this is goodbye as nothing beats the real thing. But instead of saying goodbye, we’ll throw him a Corvette Wave and see you later as we know we’ll be seeing his work again in the future.
Thanks again Chazcron for sharing your passion, dedication, and extraordinary vision of the C8 mid-engine Corvette with the Corvette community!
