It’s human nature, we suppose, to want to change something into something it’s not really meant to be.

Case in point: the two-passenger Corvette.

We all know it’s designed to be a sports car with limited capacity, but that hasn’t stopped a digital artist named jlord8 from recently re-envisioning the legendary Chevrolet in a couple of ways.

We just showed you a rendering where jlord8 transformed a C5 Corvette Z06 into a four-door sedan.

Now this talented artist has taken on the challenge of turning a C8 into a five-door station wagon.

While the mid-engine layout would make such a vehicle a virtual impossibility (or actually it is possible “virtually” on a computer), jlord8 shows us how a more practical mid-engine Corvette might look, complete with gigantic side ducts to direct air to the 6.2-liter powerplant.


It’s actually not the first time a Corvette like this has been sketched – or even actually built. Back in the early days of the ‘Vette, GM designed a Corvette Nomad station wagon with a ’53-’55 front end. In the ’70s, you could use a kit to make your C3 into a “SportWagon.” And of course, our friends at Callaway offered an “AeroWagen” package that turned the C7 into a shooting brake.

While it’s fun to fantasize about such unique Corvettes, we probably should just be content with the Stingray like it is and not try to change its personality. If we want a five-door SUV, why not just go out and buy a real one?

  1. A CT5-V Blackwing Shooting Brake would make more sense and look a lot better…and more logical.

  2. The only way a C8 Sport wagon is possible is a total electric vehicle and with the pictured look it wouldn’t care very much at only about 48” tall! Buy a Tahoe and leave the C8 as it is a stops car. GM already has to many Sports wagons it can not give away!

  3. Ok, GM, hear it from the source here…

    NO CORVETTE WAGON!!

    NO CORVETTE SUV!!

    It is NOT needed…

    It is NOT wanted…

  4. jlord8 needs to find something else to do with his time. All this dude is doing is hacking up a beautiful car and making into something 99.9% of people would never buy. Please stop doing stories on his photoshop projects and encouraging him on doing more.

  5. How would you even do that?? A mid-engine wagon?? This dude needs a hobby. Sure hope GM is ignoring all this.

  6. You guys are CRUEL !!!!! Interesting to conceptualize a Corvette. This is like: “A Panamera as related to the 911”, it worked for Porsche……..
