Coming from that Boyd Coddington school Chip usually has some very interesting ideas, He missed the boat on this one, the cab forward look of the C* gets lost in his design. Also after watching a lot of his shows, the over stylized , low stretched look that Chip does in his renderings rarely make it to the finished product, Not a fan
So, is there a reason for your childish & rude comment, or is it just another Friday night for you? If you don't like Mr Foose's design that's fine, but there's no reason (or is there?) for immature name calling here.
Chip’s drawing does exactly what he said:
- looks like a Corvette
- does not look like a European supercar
- carries forth Corvette lineage
The C8 is a great car, but it’s not a cohesive design with its odd proportions and mismatched design cues. Hard to believe the designers went from the perfect design of the C7 to this.
How could they turn their backs on Corvette design lineage?
Well said & I couldn't agree more, but the answer to your question of how could they, well that's easy, the same way they just opened the window in 2002 & casually threw 35 yrs of Camaro heritage out! Luckily some years later, they came to they're senses & hopefully they'll do the same and make the C8 look even more like a CORVETTE than Chip just did 🙏
For me, this is spot on. When I heard the rumors that the C8 would be mid-engine, I sold my C6 427 Edition, stashed the cash, and made plans to order a C8 as soon as possible. But when I saw the styling, as much as I tried and wanted to like it, I just couldn't do it. It simply does not work for me. I'm not sure Chip's proportions support the mid-engine layout, but if the C8 had looked more like this, there would be one in my garage now (or at least on somebody's build sheet in Bowling Green).
