[PICS] 2023 Corvette Z06 Renderings in EFY Body-Colored Exterior Trim vs Carbon Flash

We’ve been following the epic thread regarding the teased Z06 photo over on the Corvette Forum and the opinions are running the gamut on such a sensitive and subjective topic. The truth of the matter is that we’ve seen this happen previously. People didn’t like the non-pop-up fixed headlights on the C6, and they hated the tail lights on the C7 because they weren’t round. Now it’s the side intake’s exterior trim.

If you are not a fan of the new “wishbone” design of the 2023 Corvette Z06’s side intakes, you will most likely have an alternative choice to make that trim piece nearly disappear. Somebody did a “there, I fixed it post” on the forum to bring you an alternative view with various colored renderings of the 2023 Corvette Z06 with the EFY body-colored exterior trim.

The posts come from a Corvette Forum member named LashedUp who posted these three renderings of the C8 Corvette Z06 in the new Amplify Orange, as well as Rapid Blue and Accelerate Yellow, and all feature the body-colored side trim:

The EFY option has never been that popular as the 2021 Corvette Production Stats show just 6.8% of Corvettes equipped with the option. Even rarer are those that selected the EFA Dark Shadow Metallic vents with only 205 total Corvettes representing a minuscule 0.8%. Despite the initial pushback we are seeing, I’m not expecting a huge shift to the body-colored vents for Z06 buyers yet.

On the other side of the design table, here are three renderings from our friend ACE at the MidEngineCorvetteForum.com who previously rendered the base Z06 Corvette from the rear. He offers us these quick color changes showing the Z06 with the Carbon Flash exterior trim:

And as a final entry in the side-intake wars, I bring you this “traditional” version as found on the C8 Stingray as created by Peter Chilelli:

  1. These EFY full color renderings fail to include body color on the horizontal slats in the air (radiator) intakes on both lower front grill openings. That would improve the overall look even more in addition to hiding the side wishbones. No doubt about it: the EFY option is the way to go if you want a decent looking Z06. Also, it would be a huge improvement to move the too-low Z06 insignia higher & put it on the sail panel behind the side windows — where people could actually see it. You think they’d know better…

  2. To me, the body color accents look best and makes the lines look cleaner. The shark tooth is too much of a distraction.

  3. Body color hands down. Better yet not have that thing at all.
    also, do a render in Elkhart Lake Blue. Thats my color.

  4. People didn’t hate the C7’s tail lights because they “weren’t round.” They hated them because they were integral to the bizarre and chaotic rear end styling. A them that has been amplified times in the C8. Inexplicable.

  5. I find the efy option a big fix for the z06 shark eating a small fish meme that I now can’t unsee every time I look at the latest photos.

    Big vote for Elkhart blue as well. Now if only they could let me get the intake in Elkhart blue with appearance package as well as the calipers in Elkhart blue. I think matched interior in exterior color instead of carbon fibre would be perhaps too matchy matchy but it’s not even offered in stingray so probably not offered.
    Oh and torch blue seatbelts.

    I just think edge red calipers and edge red intake would be an off putting color but maybe not as much with efy option getting rid of the third color motif issue on the shark mouth.

    Thoughts?

  6. What happened to the aggressive spoiler? Love the car but needs something exciting in the rear…

  7. z06 base model shown only, c7 z06 base had mild spoiler as well.
    on the 26th the full reveal will show the z07’s full on batwing and hopefully news about the optional massive C8.R wing.
