I know that I posted the front as if it is 'Fact' but the more I look at it, the more it looks like a fuzzy pic of several renderings out there.

The Back Pic looks completely real to me and I think that really IS the C8 Back, but I'm going to edit my first post in this thread because now I'm not certain the front is legit.

I also don't trust pics that are fuzzy. They look like they were taken with a Kodak Brownie. In this day and age of ten gazillion megapixel cameras why are photos of the new Corvette, UFO's and Bigfoot always blurry. I can take my phone and get an in-focus pic of a gnat on a dog's peter from 20 feet away. I don't know why I would...…...but I could.

New leak....or new FAKE?



This IS an inside view of the Tustin Airship hangar. I've been there several times for car shows. However, it is VERY possible that these are just rendering placed in the hangar. We'll know soon enough - only 7 days.

FWIW Looks rendered to me AND there will be stages and fancy presentation stands. NOT just some cars on the cement floors.

Soon that same faction will want the Corvette to have a bench seat and a towing package.

The first time I saw the C7 in pictures I hated the back end and I vowed to keep my C6. But then I saw the C7 in person and I was blown away at how good it looked. I finally bought a 2017 coupe and the car has exceeded all my expectations, it's a phenomenally good car in every conceivable aspect. So if this picture is legitimate I don't really care for the rear view, but I'm willing to reserve judgment until I see the whole car in person.

I'm very excited about the C8, I was blown away at the introduction of the C4, C5, and C6 and I bought into the hype each time because Corvette. The prospect of driving a domestic mid-engine sports car is compelling enough to lure me away from my beloved C7, but I honestly don't see how the Corvette can be better than it already is. My one big worry is storage space; I can go to Costco in my C7, will the C8 be just as practical? If there is a removable roof panel, where is the storage for it? Where are they fitting all the stuff that normally goes under the hood like the radiator, condenser, accumulator, battery? Where are they putting the gas tank(s)? All this stuff takes up space, it will be interesting to see how they rearrange everything.

Putting that GM logo on there could open one up to litigation and rightfully so.

(As 1963SS indicated: day of high megapixel cameras... everywhere)
Anything "fuzzy" or blurry I am going to consider fake.

I'm just going into C8 hibernation for the next 6 days and wait for the real thing.

Sure! We are a-political here. Democrats can be Corvette fans too!
