GM Design Team Shows Off Futuristic Concept Interior Sketch13
The GM Design team has shared an interior sketch on its Instagram page, giving us a peek at the kind of forward-looking concepts the company is working on behind the scenes.
This sketch was completed by GM interior design manager Tristan Murphy, who also designed the interior for the C8 Corvette Stingray, along with future Cadillac EV products like the Cadillac Lyriq and Cadillac Celestiq, according to his LinkedIn page. It’s not clear what kind of vehicle the interior design sketch was conceived for, but seeing as designers often work on different projects for inspiration, it’s very possible that this particular design was never for a physical show car or production car.

The sketch appears to show the cockpit of a two-door sports car or coupe of some sort, based on the dashboard design and window opening shape. It also features sporty components like a rectangular flat-bottom steering wheel, a head-up display and contrasting yellow seatbelts. The center console layout evokes a sporty character, as well, with its pointed shape and centrally-mounted yellow engine start button.
We’d love to see an interior design like this applied to a future sporty electric vehicle offering from GM. The automaker is said to be working on a sporty electric Chevy four-door to replace the Camaro in 2024, so perhaps we’ll see some elements of this design carry over into that vehicle. For now, though, this design is just a fun side project from Murphy’s desk that gives only us a very rough idea of what the GM Design team is working on at the moment.
Let us know what you think of the sketch in the comments below.

It doesn’t matter how modern, or how whiz bang that interior is period to my eye, it is still cramped. What’s wrong with lateral knee room?
Don’t get their 2 door mid-engine supercar then. Try literally any other drivetrain layout.
Anyone that doesn’t like sports car interiors shouldn’t buy a sports car. That isn’t rocket science!
What’s with that long touch pad on the right of the console?
No clutch pedal and gear shift lever? No thanks.
What irks me is the lack of manual spark advance.
I’m happy to see that there is no Great Wall of Buttons in this design.
I think it would be much better if the flat screens would be integrated into the flow of the surfaces, rather than the disjointed slabs that seem to have been Super Glued onto the dash as an afterthought, as with this concept and the C8. It looks like someone called “Pens Down” on that before it was finished!
Love it! Reminds me of a 59 Impala!
50-60 years ago a similar concept design would have had a yoke for a steering wheel. Some of it is not practical but what I do like is how the dash wraps around into the door panels to continue the flow.
