GM is making the transition to all-electric vehicles, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a place for lightweight, athletic sports cars in the GM lineup. Now, we’re taking a closer look at this interesting Chevy sports car rendering.
Recently hitting the web via the official GM Design Instagram feed (@generalmotorsdesign), this rendering was created by GM Creative Designer Casey Swanseger. While it’s not totally clear when the rendering was created or for what purpose, it’s still certainly quite a striking thing to look at.
Looking a bit closer at the details, there are a few hints as to what this thing is supposed to be. For starters, we see a few Chevy Bow Tie badges located on the wheel center caps and on the trunk, indicating that this is some sort of Chevrolet sports car, possibly a future Chevy Camaro design, or maybe a future Chevy Corvette. Camaro, however, seems to be the more likely candidate of the two, given the long hoodline and proportions, both of which suggest that this is some sort of front-engine vehicle, rather than a mid-engine platform.
There’s also a set of what appear be exhaust outlets in the rear fascia, with a large, triangular shape and silver outline. Other notable features are the ultra-thing, Camaro-esque taillights, as well as the massive five spoke, two-tone wheels that full the wheel wells.
The roofline is very low on this rendering as well, enhancing the concept’s sporty attitude with thin windows and a downsized greenhouse. The panels in the profile are sleek and smooth, with two large creases (one high and one low) visually enhancing the car’s lean and low aesthetic. The fenders are also very flared, swallowing up the mammoth running gear with ease.
It’s a good look, and while something exactly like this would never actually make it to production, something similar to this might. We’d certainly love to see it happen.
