Getting Ready - Rendering, rendering, rendering

One rendering after another, one illustration after the other - the C7 is slowly getting shaped.
With all the infos we have people just can't give up optimism. Okay, I should reformulate this one as I don't want to sound too hopeless. As a matter of fact like I said it somewhere I really want to dig this think, a really want to like it.
The next rendering is just another very optimistic approach
Now is it good or bad...
I feel a bit like I have a deja vu or something when I posted some years ago (2004) I believe an illustration of a Dutch magazine when we were talking about the upcoming C6 at the time. Now that looked too good to be true. This however...

wow! now that looks impressive! interestingly similar to some of what we see in the C7 but subtle changes to the lines make it much more stunning....would love to see a rear view too!

This image has more of "concept rendering" approach to it -
wide, low, low roof line, etc., but if the actual car has this sort of stance it will be very cool.

Great stuff. Thanks for posting.

You're welcome
I agree, it has a bit of Sideswipe feeling. But i LOVE it.
The good news is, that some of the details might really look like this one.

Now if GM could deliver on a design that awesome, I'd forgive them for ruining a long running platform with robot eye tail lights. That's sweet!


Great body lines and movement. Sexy as all hell!
What a Corvette SHOULD look like.

Your rendering is stunning. Gorgeous. But for reasons beyond my comprehension, the Corvette design process at GM seems hell bent on melting way any shape or curve. Several of the renderings show C3-like swelled front fenders. The Stingray concept had them...

But the line drawings show all that eliminated in favor of a flatter more generic design. Hope you're right and I'm wrong.

very stingray conceptish, very striking.

I have a feeling when the car bows to the world we will see a little more of that concept in it than the renders have shown to date.

BTW I enjoy your site, you must put a great deal of work into it.

I seem to recall reading somewhere that the reason all generations of Corvettes after C3 were made flatter, at least where the front fenders are concerned, for visibility/safety reasons.

Can anyone corroborate this?

That is by far my favorite rendering of the C7 Corvette and I feel as though this is going to be close on the front end.

One thing that they have off is that the hood extractor is similar to the third generation big block hood in design.

This design does heavily draw from the Corvette Stingray concept (which I loved).

Also one area where I have seen a lot of renderings get the C7 wrong is they make it too flat/slab sided.

I hope you are right, because Corvette deserves to be stunning. This rendering just shows that even with those lines, those styling cues that the other drawings, renderings, CAD designs operated with you can have a completely different, striking and tasteful design.

Thanks, I try my best, but the menu is not the final yet. I was more focused on the inside (data, accurate up to date infos, be the among the first providing them) than the outside (the looks).
