2020 Corvette Wagon Rendered46
The 2020 Corvette C8 has only been out a few months at this point, but we can’t quit messing with it. Earlier this week, we posted our rendering of a four-door 2020 Corvette Sedan, moving the engine back up front and adding a pair of doors out back. Now, we’re once again tweaking the new Vette, but this time, we’ve stretched the roof to create a 2020 Corvette Wagon.
Before we dive head-first into our latest digital creation, it bears mentioning that, for now at least, there’s no indication General Motors will actually produce a 2020 Corvette Wagon. Rather, we decided to make this rendering because, well, wagons are awesome, and so is the new Vette, so why not mix ‘em?
With that covered, let’s check this thing out.
From the front, our 2020 Corvette Wagon looks familiar, at least in terms of the front fascia styling. We once again find sharp headlamp housings that pull back into the front fenders, while the lower bumper section is offset by large intakes and a prominent chin spoiler.
However, as soon as we start working our way back behind the A-pillar, things start to change. The 2020 Corvette Wagon’s roofline just keeps going, rather than quickly falling into the trunk like the standard C8 Coupe. Mounted high, we find a slim roof intake section to help feed more cool air to the mid-mounted engine.
And yes, we kept the engine in the middle for this rendering. Never mind the technical engineering hurdles of actually producing a mid-engined wagon/shooting brake—with enough effort, anything is possible. Just use your imagination, folks.
Moving to the rear, the full splendor that is the 2020 Corvette Wagon is on display. From this angle, the inspiration we took from the Corvette C7 Callaway Aerowagon becomes a bit more apparent, with a rectangular rear end and hatch glass that works well with the quartet of square exhaust pipes. Once again, that roofline has us staring.
So what do you think, dear reader? Does our 2020 Corvette Wagon rendering tickle your fancy, or is it just too weird?

I like it, don’t look as good as the earlier rendering IMO but I’d love to see a shooting brake option on Camaro and Vette.
I love it! It’s a wagon-like shooting brake and adds a tons of utility to the already great C8.
There is probably a way to cover the engine much like Porsche covers it in the cayman, adding more storage/cargo space – something the C8 separately needs despite the two tiny trunks.
Also love the Z line created on the rear fender as a result of the wagon body. It Looks unique. All the haters out there can keep hating. So many negative people in the world today… and none of these negative bullies will even come close to buying a corvette in their lifetime.
Looking more like a ZL1, from the rear corners imo.
Sorry it doesn’t look good at all
I never understand people’s weird fascination with station wagons. They are one of the automotive industries ugliest creations. SUV’s look so much better and have more space and ground clearance.
Any suv started off as a station wagon… my parents had a 57 Chevy wagon, Dad scout troop leader needless to say my brother and I grew up camping,, mom was cub scout den leader etc… that wagon took us most anyplace and worked well at the drive in theater, ( that’s what we did with a station wagon ) aka sport Utility vehicle!!!
Useless idea, did this artist’s father waist his time “drawing” a VW Beetle tow truck or snowplow?
This is an example of waisted internet bandwidth, CGI, and artist time.
Scott, the SUV is a descendant of the Panel trucks that were converted for taxi service at train stations of the turn of the 19th century, not the station wagon!
Anyone up for an inverted sailboat? No? …thought so!
For the love of God, please stop these ridiculous renders.
Why should they stop? They are doing a great job and sparking new ideas.
Why should the rest of us suffer only because you have a small mind with little imagination?
What ever happened to respect , knock you right off that alter !!! Bad thing is a 60 year old man doing that to you ! GYSOT Bob !
As much i love this car, your pushing the limit.
A shooting brake? Maybe!!
But your covering the engine bay, which is the whole point how we got here.
We finally got a Ferrari which we can buy.
Have an solid engine cover in the cargo compartment like the older US and Japanese vans use to have. Besides it’s still a sports car, you need more utility then upgrade to an SUV.
Yuck!!! Anybody who’s needs or wants a Corvette station wagon needs to think about their life choices!!! These things need to be put on a self and never visited again.
If you need that kind of space then you need a different kind of vehicle. Stop making great cars into something they should not be. Leave the Camaro and Corvette alone
A wagon makes perfect sense for this car! Engines need more head and shoulder room.
Hate to say it but a major Nooooooooooooo for me.
Love it! I’m a wagon freak so I’m really digging this rendering. Now…..if they could only make a convertible wagon…
Every Corvette owner wants a wagon ? Lol . So glad GM not doing that to the Camaro !!!!
Don’t hate guys, I’m joking !
Uh – no.
I threw up all over my phone.
yeah that’s not a wagon considering mid-engine that’s really just kind of giving you an extra maybe cubic centimeter for the rear of the car.
PS I love wagons. Had Hemi Magnum liked CTS Wagon
That rendering is some seriously tacky shit.
I like station wagons but that isn’t cutting it at all.
Wagon or shooting break? I like the rendering, though.
I’m sorry but if your gonna call it a wagon at least make it reach the back of the vehicle. All this is, is a raised engine cover with a different back window. Nowhere close to a wagon lol. All you did was effectively make 2/3’s of that spoiler useless, harder to work on the engine because the entire back likely doesn’t lift up unless it’s a hatchback? But that’s still not a wagon… And unless you plan on setting your groceries on the engine itself this doesn’t add any extra room therefore it’s pointless. Now I’m all about being creative and making something new, as long as it’s useful and not just “look I put a fork on a stick so I can reach farther with it” if you want to render a wagon make the back window 15° or less of an angle sitting directly above the tail lights going to a roof that stays the same height or tapers slowly all the way back And the sides line up to the quarter panels. Usually with extra windows for blind spots.
Well, as a different looking coupe, maybe. As a wagon, no way! Needs more room to be a proper shooting break.
About as useful as tits on a bull. Adds nothing to utility or looks.
Your comment is meaningless and you clearly haven’t thought it thru.
The wagon treatment would be useful since it would allow placing a hard cover over the engine, therefore extending the cargo capacity of the car. This is something the Porsche 718 / cayman does perfectly. No surprise it just spanked the C8 in a cargo shootout.
These cars also need to be practical, even though they are sports cars. Even with its 2 trunks, the C8 is less practical than the competition and less practical than the C7 it replaces.
So useless as what on what? Sorry, I couldn’t hear you over the sound of your own bull$hit.
Totally inappropriate language.
