However, the C7 we have here packs plenty of styling cues that not only pay a nod to its presecessors, but also the Camaros of old.
"A Chevrolet Corvette C7 given a classic treatment. I did not want to go directly into the Corvette design history but drifted towards the Camaro instead. Pretty happy with this first look at it," the pixel wielder explains on his Facebook page.
It's good to be able to admire such retro reminders while Chevy engineers are out there, testing the next incarnation of the iconic nameplate. You know, the one that will see the front end of the machine serving as a luggage compartment for the first time in the history of the model.
Expected to bow for the 2019 model year, the C8 will undoubtedly pack at least a few retro-inspired cues and it will be interesting to see how these will be mixed with the new layout of the machine (you can check out a series of spyshots in the gallery to your right).
Speaking of which, the most important question revolving around the C8 has to do with the contents of its engine compartment, as the vehicle might just be animated by GM's upcoming 6.2L DOHC LT5 V8, an engine we've already discussed.
