So this is a pretty interesting feature on the Corvette visualizer that doesn’t appear all the time, but when it does happen, it offers you an advanced 3D view of the 2020 Corvette Stingray’s interior.
Our friend meyerweb first flagged the issue tonight for us on the MidEngineCorvetteForum.com in which he noticed something different about the visualizer.
Here is what he saw:
Last night, and again this evening, I encountered something new with the visualizer, but not consistently. Instead of the normal layout with 7 tabs across the bottom, there were only two: exterior color and interior color. And only two toggles at the top (headlights on / off was missing. See first image, below.
Even stranger, when viewing the interior, I had full 360 degree, 3 dimensional scrolling. Not only left – right, but up – down, and the ability to spin the image left and right at any position up / down. Could view the headliner, see the seats and console from the top down, any angle I wanted. But then it went away again. Wonder if GM’s developers are testing something new. (You’d think they’d have a test server, though – maybe they want to see how it stands up to a higher volume of users. Anyway, see the shots below the first. It’s pretty cool.
Meyerweb grabbed some screenshots which show the ability to spin the view straight up or down as well as side to side.
Another forum member named drbodzin also chimed in as he has observed the same thing. He says the following and confirms that’s he’s able to see the different configurator when allowing the first one that loads to time out:
I also had that happen. I think the software developers are doing testing on updates to the software and we’re just intermittently seeing it in action. It was pretty darn cool though. For me, I was able to get it to show up by letting the normal configurator time out and then when I went to look at the interior, it would do what you are describing.
He also shared this great video showing the advanced 3D graphics on the Stingray’s interior views:
We have tried to recreate this process to see if we could see the configurator with just the Exterior and Interior tabs, but each time we were taken, or it was reloaded, with the six tabs across the bottom. I know that we have seen it before and thought it was some kind of error.
A pretty cool easter egg with the Corvette visualizer…that is if you can get it to work for you!
