Here's a comparison from the NSX GT3 from close to the same angle





They are very similar. Especially in profile, and that rear wing with those mounts. Couple key differences stick out to me though; the side scoops and the height of the nose.

No surprise about that, you can compare the shape also with a camouflaged 650s gt3.... these kind of MR supercars have all very similiar dimensions and proportions.

BTW, any rumors about the kind of chassis construction?
carbon tub or aluminium spaceframe?

NA V8 or turbo V6 from cadillac?

Thanks, from the door back they seem take on a different shape. And although I can't tell for sure, the Vette looks like it may be larger.

Many won't agree, but that's gone from my favourite car to my least favourite car. Now it literally brings nothing to the party.

The Corvette should have an engine the size of the moon and sound like Thor is having an argument with the sun. Instead, it looks like an NSX, and sounds like a deflated electric pencil sharpener. That car has literally zero redeeming qualities.

A Corvette that doesn't sound like the world is ending isn't worth having.

All GTE cars are starting to look the same, with the exception of the Porsche and Ford.

Yeah, I've always countered to people claiming that the Corvette needs to be mid-engined that there's no point. Particularly not after how good the C7 is - even the base model handles on par with nearly every mid-engined car on the planet.


All going mid-engined does is take away the utilitarian side of the Corvette(what little there was) that helped it stand out from other two-seat sportscars.

I can cope with the mid-engine (just...). But I can't cope with a mid-engine Corvette that sounds like it's having an asthma attack. It's pathetic. Where is Thor and his hammer? Where is that world ending sound that shakes your stomach as it goes by at Tertre Rouge and heads down to Mulsanne? Where's that sound that Lemmy from Motorhead would be proud of? Sounds like a damn BTCC Civic. People thought diesels sounded bad - this is a million times worse. They cut the balls off a Corvette.

Next they'll call it something stupid like an EcoBoost.

It'll be called an Ecotec. Just like so many engines GM engines since the mid-90s(though they weren't common in the US until the mid-2000s).

Side window doesn't go back far enough in that render. Looks pretty good imo. I think the new Vette is very long. From the camo road car running around it looks like it has a decent length wheelbase. Closer to that of the Ford GT than something like the Porsche.

50% true.
Many MR supercars like 650s, 488, nsx etc.... share similiar dimensions size and shape proportions.

I feel like the render is blegh, but hopefully the car looks better when properly debuted.
