Front-Engined 2020 Corvette Rendered, Looks So Natural

Front-Engined 2020 Corvette Rendered 1 photo
The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette continues to keep the Internet boiling, with the mix between its sub-$60,000 starting price and its >3s 0-60 mph time bringing tons of joy. Of course, there are also aficionados who would like to see a different design, especially when it comes to the rear fascia. But what if we were to change the name of the game altogether?

This isn't the first time when a contemporary Chevrolet go-fast machine sparks a debate on the fascia design and I'm obviously referring to the Camaro SS refresh here. In fact, the price of the C8 'Vette could be another clue towards the rumored axing of the Camaro, which would be a shame, but this is another story for another time.

Returning to the 2020 Corvette, we'll answer the question in the intro with another question - what if the C8 had actually continued the front-engined tradition of the machine?

Well, since an answer can't be delayed any further, the answer comes from the rendering we have here. This steers clear of the said rear end discussion, maintaining the details of the production car, albeit while placing that new LT2 up front - make sure to use the swipe feature of the Instagram post below for a direct comparison involving the actual C8.

Of course, this leads to the design becoming instantly recognizable, with certain aficionados on social media claiming this is more pleasing the eye than the mid-engined decision made by GM - I'll go ahead and ask you to be the judge of this.

Then again, it wouldn't be impossible for certain Chevrolet engineers and designers to look at this render and show a stange smile, since it's likely that a proposal like this is already burried in the automaker's archive - they probably hid it with the Holden UTE and the Porsche PDK double-clutch gearbox that saw the C8 project kicking off.

P.S.: To ensure we don't dwell on dreams, let us switch our attention to the second post below.
