    Extreme 2017 Corvette C8 (UPDATED)

    Extreme 2017 Corvette C8


    I don't often do pure renderings and hardly ever do futuristic ideas for cars. But the thread on a radical mid-engined Corvette got my juices going.

    OK so it's a bit extreme, but here's a little idea I've been toying with....

    Here he comes, here comes Speed Racer
    For pure fantasy it's a great design. It's just the sort of car I dreamed about when I was a kid, sleek, futuristic looking. What fascinates me is that it reminds me of what we imagined futuristic was in the 1970's and that really works for me.

    I see Corvette in the rear, the front is ..interesting. Cool to see something different though, I'm getting sick of the Transformers junk.

    I am not feeling this, it looks like the Bat Mobile. Your past Corvette sketches are much better.

    I like the bottom one, the front end is on the right track. It just looks too thin in spots.

    I've added a less extreme front treatment....

    I know another job you are qualified for, designing Hot Wheels.

    Actually I miss these types of over the top design exercises as concept cars. What we get now are near production cars called concepts.

    Nice work.

    Yes, I like the way the rear has worked which I took from the new fins in F1, but I'm having trouble with the front, especially the grill.

    I don't mind the lights I added which are enlarged and angled versions of those on the Stingray Concept.

    I'll just have to keep thinking about what I can do with the grill that's both new and in keeping with Corvette....

    The third and fourth version with the split grill remind me of Pontiacs from the Rolex series. At least from the A pillar forward.

    I've changed the front and perspective a bit...
