2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Is A Magnet For Rendering Artists

We’ll never get tired of seeing new Corvette C8 renders, at least not until Chevrolet fully reveals its mid-engine supercar.

Since that is expected to happen sometime next year, we’re looking at a lot of artists who want to take a shot at the 2020 Corvette’s looks.

The fresh renderings we’ve recently come across have the same source, MidEngineCorvetteForum member FirstVetteSoon (FVS). They tackle the supercar’s design and give a solution to a somewhat trivial issue: the front license plate holder.

Many people from the 31 states where the law requires front license plates are concerned about Chevy’s approach to this matter. So the artist made sure he took care of that — virtually, of course.

FVS fitted the C8 Vette with a front plate holder that fits snugly in the middle of the central air intake. Chevy did something similar with the C7, so we wouldn’t be surprised if they go down the same route again. The automaker went for an elegant solution that pleased customers in the 19 states that do not require a front plate. Chevrolet is likely to adopt a similar removable “aero cover” for the C8 as well.

Another render shows the upcoming mid-engine Corvette in the company of the current ZR1. It’s remarkable how unlike the two cars appear due to their totally different layouts.

One thing is certain, though: America’s supercar will, for the first time since it was introduced in 1953, ditch the front engine architecture in favor of an all-new, mid-engined layout. Will it be competitive? We have no doubt. Will this change cause an uproar? Is the Pope Catholic or what?
