With the whirlwind of rumors that have been surrounding the next generation Corvette — everything from it being mid-engined, to sporting a V6, to resembling the Stingray Concept, even rumors of there being two distinct Corvettes emerging — it requires a lot of imagination to fathom just what shape the C7 will eventually take. However, University of Cincinnati design student James Robbins has a pretty good idea.
As you can see from the renderings, Robbins’ renderings give a progressive take on the American icon, while still managing to take inspiration from the Corvette’s of the past. You can distinctively see some Stingray Concept blended into the rear profile, and a dash of C6 Corvette in the front. We also see some notes from outside models such as the Ferrari 458 Italia in the rear and Lotus Esprit Concept up front.
Your move, GM design department.
