[RUMOR] Is This Logo the New Emblem for the C8 Corvette Z06?


Yesterday a member of the MidEngineCorvetteForum.com posted this graphic of a logo and asked if this was the C8 Z06’s emblem. While we don’t think this will be the official logo, we wanted to share it as it’s starting to make the rounds of the usual players.

The “Z” in the logo is very stylized and many have remarked that it looks like the C8’s side air intakes that were combined up to create the letter. We traced the watermark back to “AllCarNews” which has a presence on both Instagram and YouTube and we were unable to find anything that referenced the Z06. You would think that if they got the scoop of the year, it would be prominently displayed somewhere.

I also wondered if the “Z” matched the Z-Mode button on the Stingray and that was a no as well. That “Z” looks very similar to the Z06 models from the C5-C7 era.

And here is the C7 Corvette Z06 Emblem where the Z is much easier to decipher:

I’m thinking that it comes from a rendering or other graphic illustration and is not from Chevy’s design studio. But I’ve been wrong before!

Would love to read your thoughts on this. Has anyone seen it before? Do you like it? Let us know in the comments below!

  1. I much a return to the C6 Z06 emblem/badge. If they’re wanting a return to the N/A C8 Z06 of the past, that should be the starting point.

  2. If this is the emblem, I hope GM gets the permission of Nissan to use the “Z”. Looks to me like their rendition of the lettering for their 2-seat sports car. Besides that, it’s difficult to read the “6”, but that may only be because of the angle of the picture.

  3. I second Andrew’s motions since I owned one in Jetstreamblue. The Chrome and Red Z matched the Chrome Rims with bright red brake callipers. The horsepower writing should be deleted: too boyish.
