    New Corvette Devil Ray

    New Corvette
    Devil Ray

    Here's my clean sheet concept for a new Corvette Devil Ray, which would sit under the next V8 C8 Stingray in a two-car Corvette range.

    Powered by a 400hp SIDI TT3.6 V6 through a 7 speed transaxle, it's 300lb lighter and is less about big power but more about nimble agility, a free revving engine and affordability.....

    It looks too flimsy in front of the doors and although I like the front fenders, I think they swoop up a bit too much and the back increases at too high of an angle. Overall though, I like it and it looks very aggressive.

    I've made some changes that address some of your suggestions... thanks.

    I'm not liking this one at all, thought the quality is good.
    The back is very ferrari testarossa like.
    Not feeling the front. Where is the engine? What do the side vents at the front do?
    How do the doors open? Lambo style?

    Side vents in front most likley air escape from back of radiator .

    All in bold text is how I am feeling too about this design.
    I say, try again.



    !!!!
    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

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

    Aww, I liked the twin grill.

    This grows on me more and more every day. I hope you'll continue to fine tune it.

    Something about the greenhouse just seems off, it gets too narrow in the back, I'm having a hard time fitting two people inside this car.
