Retired GM Performance Car Design Chief Tom Peters was at California’s Art Center design school for their annual car classic and he spoke about the new 2020 Corvette Stingray. He covers different aspects of the design of the Mid-Engine Corvette and how designers differentiate the designs between various models, and he also touches on some of the challenges the team faced.
Peters was asked a future product question in a round-about way, and he responds by saying that this mid-engine configuration for the Corvette is the tip of the iceberg in terms of what we’ve seen so far.
The moderator also asks Tom about the various “Easter Eggs” on the car and he says his favorite is the door handles under the side scoops and also pointed out the small C8 crossed flag logos on the headlamps. He says as designers they love doing that (Easter Eggs) and there will be more to come!
