    We'll see. Personally, the way things are at GM right now, I'd be surprised if GM went so far out of the way to glue a fake piece on the door like that. Besides, in the video of the C8 driving through NY when he opened the door to let Ma out, the door switch was under the "winglet"...

    Well if it does have the winglet, then I'm gonna look like the biggest A-hole of all time....Oh Wait!

    Btw. having a switch relocated there on the prototype would not require a lot of effort.

    True, I just don't see GM going all out like that to fool us. Especially driving all around in NYC!!

    At this point and considering it is after all GM, I think anything is possible when it comes to shenanigans like this.

    Wherever this out of focus picture came from, it looks like it's been retouched or manipulated. Also looking at the scoop, it looks perhaps like it actually starts behind the door, rather than on it, but because the picture is so bad it's hard to say for sure.

    I think GM is being clever with these leaks and the cladding on the prototypes. Remember how carefully that guy opened the door in NY? They could have rigged a way to open it with cladding. Both the rear pic, which seems genuine, and the front pic, which is really grainy and the car really kind of plain, are not telling the whole tale I don't think. I mean, I could be totally wrong, but I just have a hard time believing they kept the thing under wraps, just to have half-assed cladding that gave away the shape. And these two accidental leaks less than two weeks out? This is trickery. I hope, anyway, because so far I don't like it.

    This is the long awaited world class Ferrari eating Vette. I don't care what or where a scoop is. It will be awesome.
